We are rapidly approaching the end of the semester. Students are wrapping up their classes and preparing to start new ones.
We have had some changes to our school Calendar. Due to the Snow Days we had last month we are extending our semester by 2 days. Grades will close January 24th.
There will be No School January 25th, it will be teacher work day.
GHS uses WMUR News 9 as the designated location where school closings due to weather will be posted. These closing are listed online at www.wmur.com. Once you go to their website, click on the tab for closings, and you will see Granite Hill School listed. Granite Hill School DOES NOT do a phone message to families when school is cancelled.
If your student’s district closes due to weather, but GHS is still open, transportation will not be provided and your student is not expected to come in. If your student’s district has a 2 hour delay, transportation will pick your student up after the 2 hour delay.
Second quarter is well under way here at GHS. Students are working hard in their classes. Report cards will be sent home by 11/17/2022.
Next week the entire GHS community will take part in our annual Punkin’ Chunkin’ event! This event also coincides with Spirit Week! This week is always full of fun and laughs and we cannot wait to have some fun. The Spirit Week schedule is available at the link below.

As Granite Hill enters its 3rd week of the 2022-2023 school year, we are excited to share some of the changes in the school this year. First we have a few new staff members that the students have already had a chance to meet. We would like to welcome them all to the GHS community!
This year, all students are participating in a new advisory program. In this program students get to work on tasks that focus on social emotional learning (SEL). These skills will help them be successful both in and out of the classroom. Activities included team building games, strategy exercises, and brain teasers.
We are also excited to share that over the summer 4 elements of a high ropes course were added to the property. Students will have a chance to use this course at various times throughout the year.
We are thrilled to see what this new school year will bring!
We are halfway through the 3rd quarter! The end of the year is coming up fast! Students have settled into their second semester classes and have been working hard. Progress reports are being prepared by teachers this week and will be sent home next week. GHS is aware of the changes in mask mandates and is currently working on revising our mask policy. For the time being, our mask policy will remain the same. GHS will notify all community members if any changes to our mask policy occur.
Hello GHS community! Can you believe the mid-point of the school year is upon us? This is the last week of the first semester. Students are working hard finishing up their first semester courses. On Monday, all classes will switch and students will begin new classes for second semester. Report cards for this quarter will also be going home once grades are finalized.
While the high school at GHS is virtual, students should follow the schedule below. Students are expected to attend ALL classes at the designated time; as if they were at school in person. Students should use the links provided in their individual Google Classrooms. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact the school.

Due to an increased amount of cases in the high school community, the high school will be going remote for the week of 1/10/22. The daily schedule will be emailed to students. Students should check their GHS email for the daily remote schedule as well as information that may be sent from teachers.
It should also be noted that there is a change to the official school calendar. GHS will NOT be in sessions on 1/17 in observance of Civil rights day.
As a friendly reminder, anytime that GHS will be closed it will be available at WMUR. Once you go to their website, click on the tab for closings, and you will see Granite Hill School listed.
