WELCOME BACK STUDENTS!!!

The mission of the Granite Falls School District is to inspire and facilitate a passion for life-long learning and the pursuit of excellence in every student, every day. Our students are passionate in pursuit of their goals and aspirations. To that end, they are critical and inspired thinkers, adaptable, collaborative and committed to making a difference in their communities and to the betterment of society.

New Website!
We’ve gone LIVE! The new Granite Falls School District website has successfully launched. On this site you will find the most up-to-date information about the school district. To view the old site, visit  www.old.gfalls.wednet.edu. This site will remain active for the next several weeks during our transitional period, but may not contain the most current information.

FREE Flu Vaccination Clinic on October 17 
The District is committed to helping our students, parents and our community keep healthy throughout the entire flu season. That’s why we have partnered with the Seattle Visiting Nurse Association to provide a “flu shot clinic” for our district. Clinics will be open to all Granite Falls School District children (four years of age and older) and their families. Please note that students under the age of 18 will need a Patient Consent Form signed by a parent or guardian. Patient Consent Forms will be available at the clinic site or you can download the .pdf form here. Join us on Friday, October 17th at the District Multi-Purpose RM, located at 405 North Alder Ave. from 3pm-7pm.  Read more info here (.pdf)

Athletic Schedules
High School and Middle School athletic information will be posted on the Athletics Page available under the Programs tab or under the Quick Links feature at the bottom of this page. Parents are encouraged to contact their child’s principal for scholarships if needed to help with participation fees. The District Activities Handbook for all schools can also be found on the website (where students will find all the forms needed for eligibility). Schedules are subject to change throughout the season so all conference/league schools have changed over to the Cascade Athletics website. All High School Athletic schedules will be posted on this newer site, so please refer there for the most current information. You can even sign up to get SMS and email alerts of changes!

September Superintendent Letter
It is amazing how quickly summer flies by and September approaches!  The weather was absolutely amazing this year! We had another eventful summer here in Granite Falls, which included events like Show and Shine, the Safety Fair, National Night Out and the Stillaguamish Festival of the River—it was my first year at this festival.  I certainly enjoyed spending time talking with several of you in town these past couple months.  I am very excited about this coming year and can hardly wait to see all the new and returning students!  Read full letter here>
