Welcome back all GRPS scholars, staff, and families! It is back to school time for Grand Rapids Public Schools! 

The first day of school is Tuesday, August 23. Get ready for the new school year with these helpful resources and events:

  • School Enrollment & Assistance: If you have not enrolled or registered for the new school year, please do so at enroll.grps.org. There you will find helpful steps to enroll or register your child on ParentVue. 
  • School Orientations & Open Houses: Make sure to attend your school's Orientation and Open House events to ask questions and meet school staff. A full list of events can be found on the Back to School Calendar or your school's webpage. If you have questions, please contact your school directly. 
  • New Dress Code: In alignment with our objectives identified by our 2022-2027 Strategic Plan, we have adopted a new dress code policy that was approved by the Board of Education on August 1, 2022. School uniforms will no longer be required for the 2022-2023 school year. You can find more information about our updated dress code policy on page 26 of the GRPS Scholar Resource & Responsibility Guide (formally known as the Student Handbook). 

More helpful back-to-school tips and information will be provided throughout the month of August. Please check your email, the GRPS district or school social media, or return to this webpage for updates. 

We are looking forward to another school year with you!
