The Grand County Middle School office will be open starting Aug. 1 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Parents and students may come in and pay fees (and bring immunization records) any time before school starts.

Orientation will be Aug. 9 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. At that time lockers and schedules will be given out upon a copy of students’ paid fee receipt, according to a press release from the school. Seventh graders must provide proof of immunizations.

The following schedule will be used to process students: For seventh grade, 8-9 a.m., last names starting from A to F; from 9 to 10 a.m., last names from G to L; from 10 to 11 a.m., last names from M to R; from 11 to noon, last names from S to Z. Eighth grade from 1 to 2 p.m., last names from A to F; 2 to 3 p.m., last names from G to L; 3 to 4 p.m., last names from M to R; from 5 to 6 p.m., last names from S to Z.

Students and at least one parent or guardian are required to attend a session of orientation. “If for some reason you are unable to attend your scheduled session, you will need to schedule an appointment with the principal for a make-up time,” said the press release. Call 259-7158.

The school noted that it cannot process credit cards. Cash or a check will be needed for fee payments. If individuals need a fee waiver, parents must show their last three work-related check stubs, or last year’s tax return.
