Later School Start Times Committee Volunteers

  • Since 2016, the Grafton School Committee has been studying the possibility of implementing later school start times for our secondary students (GMS, GHS) based on the overwhelming research on the benefits to health, safety, and learning. Over the last few years, the School Committee has been presented with a few options for consideration. Before proceeding any further, we would like to engage multiple stakeholders from the school community in order to evaluate the impact of the various options and to collectively problem-solve concerns. While the final decision for the plan moving forward resides with the School Committee, we hope the Later School Start Times Committee will provide the much needed broad input from stakeholders from the school community. 

    If interested, please fill out the survey accessible through the following link:

School Cancellation / Delay Notices

  • If school is canceled or delayed, we will contact local news stations and post on our website ( Our primary vehicle for communication is through our use of Alert Solutions.  Alert Solutions is a communication program that is tied directly to PowerSchool.  This program provides calls, texts, and emails to designated numbers/email addresses when there is notice of a cancellation or delay.

    To verify your contact information, parents and guardians should log into their PowerSchool Parent Access Accounts. This link can be found under Parent Links at the top of this page.

    Click on "Demographics Update" on the left navigation bar.  Add or edit email addresses and phone numbers. Please put only one email address or one 10-digit phone number per line.  Click "Submit."  The updated information will be verified and uploaded to Alert Solutions within 48 hours.  

    To view how Alert Solutions system is currently set up to contact your household, click on the AlertSolutions2 icon on the left. Choose “Contact Preferences” tab view and choose which phone numbers and email addresses will receive each level of contact.

    We will be running a test of our cancellation/delay notification system this Thursday, November 16th at 5:00 PM.
