    As part of ongoing efforts to improve Grand County School District safety procedures, the district will conduct an off-site reunification drill on Friday, May 17.

    The drill will be held with Grand County Middle School students, immediately following student release, according to an announcement from the district. Student and parent/guardian participation will be voluntary, and signed consent forms will be required for student participation.

    In preparation for the drill, GCSD will host a parent/guardian reunification information session on Monday, May 6 at 6:30 p.m. at Grand County High School. The session is open to all parents/guardians in the district. Additional information on reunification planning can be found on the GCSD website under the “Safety” tab.

    The drill is intended to provide students, parents/guardians and staff an opportunity to rehearse the process for returning students to families following a crisis incident. The drill will also serve as a learning opportunity for GCSD to refine and improve the process, according to the press release. Other district campuses will not be affected by the upcoming drill. As GCSD builds on the reunification process, future drills will be held at all campuses.

    For questions or additional information, contact the GCSD at 435-259-5317.
