Great to see our 5th and 6th-grade students from East Meadow actively participating in the Granby Jr/Sr High School Health Fair thanks to Nurse Leader, Nancy Jenks. Many of the stations were developed and manned by their high school peers. There is an abundance of local community partners sharing information. The students are learning about healthy food & nutrition, asthma, health conditions, body functions, road safety, stress management, learning how to care for emergency bleeding, substance abuse and prevention, mental health, skincare and protection, injury prevention, and age-appropriate sexual and reproductive health.

During the week of January 27, 2020, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s Office of Public School Monitoring (PSM) will conduct a Tiered Focused Monitoring Review of Granby Public Schools. The Office of Public School Monitoring visits each district and charter school every three years to monitor compliance with federal and state special education and civil rights regulations. Areas of review related to special education include student assessments, determination of eligibility, the Individualized Education Program (IEP) Team process, and IEP development and implementation. Areas of review related to civil rights include bullying, student discipline, physical restraint, and equal access to school programs for all students. In addition to the onsite visit, parent outreach is an important part of the review process. The review chairperson from the Office of Public School Monitoring will send all parents of students with disabilities an online survey that focuses on key areas of their child’s special education program. Survey results will contribute to the development of a report. During the onsite review, the Office of Public School Monitoring will interview the chairperson(s) of the district’s Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC). Other onsite activities may include interviews of district staff and administrators, reviews of student records, and onsite observations. Parents and other individuals may call Marc Oldenburg, Public School Monitoring Chairperson, at (781) 338- 6703 to request a telephone interview. If an individual requires an accommodation, such as translation, to participate in an interview, the Department will make the necessary arrangements.

Repair work has been scheduled for tomorrow morning. At this point, GJSHS ONLY will have a two hour delay. Elementary students will be picked up at their normal times for a regular start of school. The busses will then pick up GJSHS high school students. Should the situation change at GJSHS, we will use the normal channels to communicate with our families in the morning. Thank you to our facilities and custodial staff who will monitor the situation overnight and work to get repairs made as quickly as possible. The entire team has jumped to do whatever they can to help. Thank you, and have a wonderful evening.
