Athletic practices, rehearsals and other before or after school activities are canceled when school is delayed or dismissed early.
SCHOOL BREAKFAST FACTS
A great breakfast program is offered in the cafeteria every day. Here are five good reasons to send your child:
1. It’s easy: instead of running around in the morning trying to make sure your children are eating a nutritious meal, why not just leave it to us? They’ll get a great breakfast and have time to hang out with friends before classes begin. Also, no dishes for you to wash.
2. It’s inexpensive.
3. It’s tasty. There are so many choices. Go ahead and see for yourself. New menus are available every month.
4. It makes them smarter: According to the Tufts University School of Nutrition Science and Policy,
“Children who participated in the School Breakfast Program were shown to have significantly higher standardized achievement scores than eligible non-participants.”
5. It makes them healthier: Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital found that students who ate School Breakfast reduced hyperactivity, decreased absence and tardy rates, and improved behavior.

IMPORTANT: Iowa School Alerts Announcement re: Change in Vendor and New Sign-up Information
The Gladbrook-Reinbeck School District has utilized Iowa School Alerts as one of its primary notification methods to alert the public as to school cancellations, delays, and early dismissals, as well as other important announcements. One of the convenient components of this service is the ability to have the message sent directly to any cell phone or email that you register with the system.
The State of Iowa is switching vendors for this service and the current system and its list of subscribers will cease to operate effective June 30, 2016. The new system is called GovDelivery Iowa School Alerts and we encourage everyone to go to "https://public.govdelivery.com/accounts/IAEDU2502/subscriber/new" and sign up to receive announcements from this new system. It only takes a minute to sign up.
If you need to register your child for Kindergarten, please print and fill out the attached forms. Call the G-R Elementary Building with any questions or concerns [(319) 345-2822].
