On snow days/e-Learning, please remember that middle school students will have a regularly scheduled eLearning day while elementary students will be provided optional activities to complete. Middle school students will begin virtual learning starting at 8:00am. Elementary families should be on the lookout for communication from their classroom teacher with instructions for the day.

Please stay safe and warm!

Yay! 🥳❄

Maybe we should give the kids a snow day. I'm sure not everyone can access e-learning today.

The rest of the district is on a snowday...NO SCHOOL NO E.LEARNING!!!!

Grand Peak Families, GPA will be on our snow day/e-Learning schedule for tomorrow, Tuesday, March 16th.

We are aware that throughout the day many roads have cleared and would most likely be safe to drive on for the morning commute. Our decision to move to a snow day/e-Learning schedule was based on District 49’s decision to be on a remote work day for tomorrow. GPA uses D49 services for nutrition and health. Due to their call to move to a remote work day, GPA will be without nutrition and health room services since these are provided to us by D49.

Many of our students rely on nutrition and health services. Without these two main services, we will not be able to open on Tuesday.

Does anyone know of the potential of in person classes for the remainder of this week? As a working single parent I have to notify work each time school closes like this. These are unprecedented times and communication would be greatly appreciated Grand Peak Academy

I do wish that this could have been decided by the parents through a survey instead. At this rate, we should have just had the same spring break schedule as the rest of D49.

I understand this, but it's frustrating to just hear about it and we lose yet another day of paid Champions after school care.

Does this apply to pre-k as well since we don’t utilize nutrition services?

I have to agree on the Pre-K aspect. We provide lunches for our kiddos so why should they miss a day? So many of us have to go into work tomorrow and are scrambling to find care when the roads are pretty clear

Question, Banning Lewis Academy falls under Dist 49 as a charter too and just updated Dist 49 is providing lunches for them? For single or dual working families, today was hard enough to cover and now tomorrow as well? I’m all about safety, but this isn’t for that.

Majorly frustrated here along with most others posting here. Since we can't change their minds, I'm offering to help out a family who might need a place for their kiddo tomorrow--free of charge.....would take a 5th grader and a 6th grader--as I have both (boys in Walck and in Cortez) --very near the old Imagine school building. Just pm me.

This should not apply to pre-K as they only use the facility and not nutrition and health services. Pre-K does not have the option for remote learning, so the children basically have another day off, one that is not needed. Additionally, they have this Friday off, so they're only getting two days of learning this week. Unless you're planning to have school on Friday and move your PD day to tomorrow, but I doubt that. Kind of ridiculous.

Thank you for letting us know😊

I agree about Pre-K. We pay a monthly tuition and provide lunch everyday. Why can’t they be in school tomorrow?

What is the reason? The roads are clear!

GPA is darned if they do and darned if they don't. They will never please everyone.

And with more snow Tuesday night, just start Spring Break early.

Grand Peak Families, GPA will be on our snow day/e-Learning schedule for tomorrow, Monday, March 15th due to the winter storm currently moving through our area which has already dropped several inches of snow. The snow, strong winds, accompanied by freezing temperatures overnight, could likely create unsafe travel conditions for the morning commute.

It is 10:30 p.m. and the news channels are reporting no remote learning for district 49. Isn't Grand peak academy supposed to follow what d49 does? So do middle schoolers have a snow day tomorrow?

Will the middle school students be entitled to any snow days this year?

Grand Peak Families, Due to the current weather conditions, we will be having an indoor release. Indoor release means that parents park, enter the building with a mask, and go to your child’s classroom for pick-up; all students will remain in their individual homeroom class.

Due to COVID-19, parents entering the building for indoor release must be wearing a mask. Parents may park against the outside curb of the carpool lane, but not in the “through lane.” Parents may also park in the lot, the neighborhood, or in available stacking lanes; please use stacking lanes #1, 3,4, and 6 for parking. A limited number of parents wearing masks may enter the building starting at 2:50 pm (3:00 pm for middle school students) and make their way to your child's classroom, present an ID (required), and pick up your child.
*Kinder, 1st, and 5th-grade parents come through the Kinder playground entrance.
*2nd, 3rd, and 4th-grade parents come through the main doors.
*Middle school parents enter and exit through the northeast corner of the building.
If you have children in multiple grades, please feel free to choose the entrance most convenient.

Please announce yourself when you arrive at the door of your child’s classroom, but do not enter the classroom to increase safety. An indoor release does take more time than a regular release.

Walkers with an Indoor Release: With an indoor release, “walkers” are released as usual unless the parent calls the school prior to 2:45 pm to make a change; or in the case of extreme inclement weather, “walkers” will be held until we deem the weather is safe to release.
Please feel free to contact us at 719-495-7360 if you have any questions.
