Principal's Message

  • Ken Turnis I want to give a welcome to all of our future Christine Grant Elementary students and families. I am very honored to be the first principal of Christine Grant and look forward to working with you all in the creation of a positive learning community. The opportunities are endless as the establishment of traditions, celebrations, and culture within and beyond the walls of the school occur during this planning year and beyond.

    We will get to know each other on many levels as planning occurs over the next year and, of course, once the school is open.  During this next year, I will be assisting at both Garner Elementary and Penn Elementary. This will be terrific as I also will get to know many of our Christine Grant students and families! 

    Feel free to contact me with any questions. 

    Best,

    Ken Turnis, Principal

  • School Calendar Update and Enrollment Deadline Reminder

    The Board discussed the District’s upcoming transition to a 100% on-site learning model during a special Board Meeting on February 2, 2021. In order to better prepare for this transition, it was decided that Friday, February 12, 2021, will be a ‘no school’ day for students. Staff will utilize this day to prepare to welcome students back to 100% on-site learning on Monday, February 15, 2021. This includes aligning student services, building staffing plans, equipping buildings with necessary furniture, reviewing new health and safety protocols, and conducting building cleaning. The ‘no school’ day applies to both on-site and online students and will not impact the last day of the school year this June.

  • Learning Model Update (1/29/21)

    On January 29, 2021, a bill was signed by the Governor requiring school districts to provide parents an option to send students to school five days a week. Due to this change in state law, the District will offer a 100% on-site option and a 100% online option (ICCSD PK-12 Online Learning Program). Effective February 15, 2021, the District will no longer offer the hybrid option.
