A warm welcome to all new and returning Grand River Collegiate students as we head into the 2014-2015 school year.

Your new school year begins on Tuesday, September 2nd.  Please refer to the first day schedule posted on the website to note specific times when you are to be at school.

Just a few reminders for September 2nd:

  • If you haven’t already done so, please bring your completed and signed Data Verification Form on Tuesday in order to receive your timetable.  Include any information regarding epipen needs.
  • Bring a lock for your locker.
  • Returning students with outstanding textbook issues need to clean up these debts before receiving a timetable.
  • Alphabetical lists will be posted in the front foyer for students to find their homerooms.  Grade 9 Orientation and Welcome will take place in the morning finishing with Grade 9 BBQ.  Students in grades 10, 11, and 12 are to report to their homeroom at 11:50 a.m.
  • School Busses will run their normal bus schedule. 

Looking forward to seeing you!
