Grissom Parents & Students,

Reminder:

HCS is requiring masks to be worn on all properties at this time. Students completed registration forms in March and submitted the forms to the counselors. This year, we will not send out “course verification sheets” as we have in previous years. The reason for this is due to us switching from INOW to “PowerSchools.” Please speak with your child regarding registration. Parents were to sign the form before submission. If you need assistance with registration questions, please email your child’s counselor.

Prom for Seniors will take place on May 14, 2021, from 8:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. at Grissom High School.

Graduation will take place on May 28, 2021, at the VBC.

The times are as follows:

  • Last Names A-L 5:30 p.m.
  • Last Names M-Z 7:30 p.m.

A GHS senior schedule of events should be posted next week.
