School Closings

Griswold Public Schools distributes alerts about school closures, delays and early dismissals to parents/guardians of students enrolled in GPS (email notifications through Infinite Campus and the School Messenger Notify automated phone service). Families, students, and staff should pay close attention on questionable days for these messages and community broadcasts. 

In the event of inclement weather or other school closure, the following stations will broadcast school closing/delay notices:

Some of these stations have a SMS Text Message subscription service, where you can be notified about school closures via text.

Whenever possible, the Superintendent will choose a DELAYED OPENING rather than a cancellation.

GHS Students from Sending Towns:

For Griswold High School students from sending towns, we advise signing up for School Closure Alerts for your child’s home district and Griswold Public Schools. If your child's home district is closed, your child will not have access to bus transportation and may require alternative transportation to GHS, if it remains open.

Griswold Students Attending other High Schools

For students from Griswold attending other high schools (tech, VOAG, magnet schools, etc.), sign up for School Closure Alerts for your child’s school and Griswold Public Schools. If GPS is closed, your child will not have access to bus transportation, even if their school remains open.
