Grand County High School

Grand County High School Principal Steve Hren said there is no formal supply list for high school students, and many of the important dates for high schoolers expired prior to the publication of The Times-Independent’s Aug. 8 edition, but there is other information that high school students and parents should know.

New hires

The following new hires and transfers took place at the high school over the summer:

  • Josh Jensen – Band.
  • Cara Grula – Agriculture and biology.
  • Ryan Magee- Social studies.
  • Dan Stenta – Transfer to math/Computer Science.

School community council

Hren told The Times-Independent that the high school is looking for volunteers to serve on the school’s community council, which, among other duties, is tasked with allocating funds raised by the Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration and apportioned to Grand County schools.
