School to Home Communication

Electronic Bulletins 

The school communicates primarily through the Home Bulletins. These weekly digital (bi-weekly at GRCHS) publications are emailed to all current parents at each campus. The bulletins are also posted on the schools’ website ( The bulletins are used to share campus-specific information and news, announcements, and updates on past and upcoming events.

Problem Solving

Open and honest communication between parents and teachers is very important and the responsibility of both. It is within the context of open communication that problems are solved. If parents have questions or comments regarding general school policy, they should contact administrative staff to discuss these concerns. In other situations, parents are asked to contact the staff person who is closest to the situation. If the situation is unresolved, the principal should be contacted.

Chain of Communication

We understand that questions and concerns may arise during the school year. As Christians we know that God calls us to bring our concerns and questions to one another in love and respect. If a question, problem, or concern develops in class, please have your child reach out to their teacher via email or in person to gain understanding. If questions remain, it is recommended that you and your student follow the chain of communication to bring about a resolution. 

  1. Classroom teacher

  2. Student’s Counselor

  3. Building administration

  4. Superintendent

Parent and Guardian Communication

It is Grand Rapids Christian Schools Board policy that parents provide information regarding any custody or visitation restrictions for their child, which is kept in the child’s record at GRCS. Without documentation, GRCS sends all communication to and gives both parents/legal guardians education and custody rights. GRCS abides by all court restrictions as long as a copy of a custody or visitation agreement has been provided.

It is GRCS policy to permit those persons identified to GRCS as a student’s guardian or parent to visit the students on school grounds, participate in school-sponsored trips and remove the student from campus. Changes to these policies, whether to add or except a parent, must be requested in writing.
