Lunchtime Update and Lunch Fee Reminder

This coming week, many District 220 schools will be switching back to the pre-pandemic set-up that we typically use in our school lunchrooms. Please note that due to our increase in positive cases within the Grove community last week, we will be waiting to make this transition at Grove until we have an opportunity to evaluate our numbers after another week. Once our numbers have lowered back to a minimal rate, we will make the transition in our school as well. All lunch times for students will remain the same. . 

School lunch is currently free for all students, however, should a student wish to purchase a second lunch, they may do so for  $2.95 each day. Please communicate with your child as to whether or not they can purchase seconds at lunch, as the fee for second lunches does go onto their accounts. 

Yearbook Update 

If you have already purchased a yearbook through Revtrak, you should’ve received an email from TreeRing to start customizing your 2 free pages. If you have not received this, please email Samantha Cleys at

If you missed purchasing through Revtrak, please use the link provided to purchase your yearbook directly through TreeRing. If the link does not work, enter code 1016280965352976 for Grove Avenue Elementary.

Math Elementary Parent University Recording 

Earlier this year, our district offered an Elementary Parent University, “Supporting Your Elementary Child in Mathematics.” If you were unable to attend, but would like to still learn about how to support your child in the area of math, please be sure to view the video of the session, as it was recorded for our community! The recording can be viewed using the links below:
