A Friendly Reminder -

We all have a critical role to play in helping to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Grandview Heights Schools encourages everyone to stay at home and be safe. When you and your family are out on public sidewalks, trails, and walking paths, please maintain proper social distancing between you and other residents to limit potential exposure to the virus. Also, please remember that in accordance with Governor DeWine's “Stay at Home” mandate, all of our facilities are closed to the public. Thank you for your continued support, patience, and cooperation as we all work together to flatten the curve.  #InThisTogetherOhio #StayHomeOhio
