School Closings and Delays

Muncie Community Schools makes every effort to notify school families in the event of school closings or a two-hour delay to the start of the school day. If school is canceled or delayed, we will utilize Honeywell Instant Alert, our phone and email notification system, and our school website, www.muncie.k12.in.us, and our Facebook to notify families.  In addition, information will be sent to our local radio stations and the Star Press.  The Indianapolis television stations also will be notified.

Tips from Nurse Cindy:

'Tis the season for many viruses in the community and here at school.
Most important factor in preventing illness: Frequent Hand Washing!!!
What have we been experiencing at Grissom?
• Colds: nasal congestion, mild cough, low-grade fevers, feeling generally yucky
• Intestinal viruses: nausea, vomiting, some diarrhea, may have low-grade fever
• Other viruses: temps from 101-103, headache, may have stomach aches
• Strep: Strep (a bacterial infection) is ALWAYS available.
While I have not had medical confirmation of Influenza, you can be sure it is here.
Influenza (flu) facts: Seasonal influenza, commonly called “the flu,” is caused by influenza viruses, which infect the respiratory tract (i.e., the nose, throat, lungs). Unlike many other viral respiratory infections, such as the common cold, the flu can cause severe illness and life-threatening complications in many people. The flu usually comes on suddenly (cdc.org).
• Best prevention is the flu vaccine. It's not too late to get the vaccine.
• No vaccine is 100% guaranteed to protect you, but even if you are exposed to a mutated influenza virus or one that was not one of the strains in the vaccine, the flu shot will still protect you from getting as sick as you would without the vaccine.
• 2nd best prevention: Handwashing!




MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

 

RESPECT FOR ALL

 

DOING WHAT IS BEST FOR KIDS!

 

As we continue through the educational journey with the students at Grissom Elementary School, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff, parents, community partners, and students for making Grissom a destination for learning and enrichment.  Wonderful things happen every day for the students at Grissom.  This happens because of the dedication of a staff that provides a safe and inviting climate to help students reach their potential.  Each day, students come to school eager to learn.  I strive to visit classrooms daily and am inspired by the growth of our students - both academically and socially.  Our students show respect for others and, in turn, receive the respect they so richly deserve.  This allows for an atmosphere focused on instruction and the ability to get the most out of each school day.

 

I am honored to be your principal.  Together we are "DOING WHAT IS BEST FOR KIDS!"  If you have concerns or suggestions, please stop by or call the office at 747-5401.

 

Sincerely,

 

Mrs. Dea Young, Principal


Attendance Procedures

Please remember that it is very important for your child to arrive at school on time each day. The doors open at 8:00 a.m. When students arrive they can either go to the gym to wait or to the cafeteria for breakfast. The first bell rings at 8:20 a.m. for students to go to class. The tardy bell rings at 8:30 a.m. Students arriving after 8:30 a/m. are counted tardy.                                                                                                                                                                    If students accumulate 8 tardies for the year, CPS is notified. Please make sure that your student arrives in plenty of time to get to class.
