- Health and Safety
It is very important for our students, staff, and parents to feel safe and secure at school. When we partner together on safety issues we can be assured that all will respond with caution and confidence in the case of an emergency.
Visitor Sign In
All GRCS Campuses require that all non-GRCS employees sign in at the school office and obtain a visitor name tag which should be worn for the duration of their time in the building. Visitors need to sign out upon leaving.
State regulations require that we have fire, tornado, and lockdown drills during the school year. A log of each school's drills can be found on the website at www.grcs.org/schools/emergencydrills in accordance with Public Act 12 of 2014.
There is a comprehensive crisis management manual that addresses what the staff will do in case of various emergency situations. A copy of this manual is given to and reviewed with each staff member yearly. Necessary crisis documents are kept in a pouch hung by each classroom door. Copies are available to parents upon request to the school office.
Grand Rapids Christian High School
In order to maintain an appropriate level of security, exterior doors, including the student entrance, are locked during the school day and security cameras are in use. Students, parents, and guests may only access the building through the main office entrance during school hours. Propping doors or opening them to allow access to the building violates school security and is grounds for disciplinary action.
Tampering with security cameras is grounds for disciplinary action.
To keep our campus secure, all visitors are required to check-in with the attendance supervisor or the receptionist in the main office as soon as they arrive on campus. Items to be delivered to students and/or placed in students’ vehicles must be approved by the attendance supervisor or the receptionist in the main office. To minimize disruption to classes, items brought in for students will be delivered between class periods by school personnel.
Students must be in supervised areas of the building while at school. After school, students are expected to leave the premises at 2:50 pm, unless they are participating in a school-supervised activity on the campus. In that case, they are to report directly to their assigned locations, remain there until the conclusion of their activity, and then leave the premises immediately following that end-time. Students who must wait for extracurricular activities or rides home are expected to do that in the Town Square on the office level or a different designated area of the school.
