Regretfully free school lunches will expire September 1st 2022. This means there will again be a fee for School Hot Lunch. Recognizing the additional Burdon of this on families the GPS School Board proposed that the district offer Free breakfast and milk. The prices will remain as they were in 2019, K-6 $2.40/ lunch, 7th-12th $2.65/ lunch, & Adult meals $4.00. This price however, is subject to change in January 2023. All families are encouraged to fill out a free and reduced lunch application even if you do not think you qualify as the number of applications helps the school district in other funding formulas. This form can be filled out https://www.schoolcafe.com/ (create and account super easy) or a paper copy can be printed from our website https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jqCnXAzXv87TAU4my8lyOWo_0gUiuOdM/view?usp=sharing or picked up at the school.

Thunder Athletes and Parents, In only 3 short weeks, varsity athletes will be hitting the court and field for the start of the 2022-2023 sports seasons. Every athlete, grades 6-12, needs to have a sports physical before they are allowed to participate in sports. Athletes will be on their own to get these scheduled, as the clinic no longer travels to schools. Physical forms can be found in the school office or online on the Grenora Public School website under "documents". Varsity practice for Football and Volleyball begin Friday, August 12th. GO THUNDER!
The yearbook staff only received 8 online pre-orders for the 2021-22 yearbook which will be delivered shortly after school begins next month. Please email Mrs. Paine if you plan to purchase one then. (firstname.lastname@example.org) Fewer books will be available if we don't get more predictable numbers. It's hard on the yearbook fund if we get stuck with a lot of unpurchased yearbooks. We are hoping everyone will understand if we don't have any left to buy come August and September. Pre-orders work the best in this situation. Thanks everyone.
