Student Registration

In an effort to improve our registration process for the 2018- 2019 school year, we have launched an online system! During this time, please utilize ParentVUE to update information such as your home address, telephone numbers, student health information and emergency information. 

ParentVUE may be accessed in several ways:

  • Mobile device
  • Tablet
  • Desktop computer (at home, your child’s school, Community & Student Services or any public library).
  • Any device with access to a web browser

This process must be completed, even if your information has not changed, so we may best prepare for your child’s enrollment for the 2018-19 school year.

To register your student(s), type the following into your web address bar: family.grps.org.

This will direct you to the ParentVUE page where you will follow the prompts to begin the student enrollment process. If you have multiple students at GRPS you only have to complete this process one time for your household.  If you have any questions about this process, please call your school’s office for assistance.

To register at your child’s school, please reference the charts below. Please, bring your student’s Birth Certificate, proof of address (in the form of a utility bill or leasing agreement), monthly income information and case # if receiving government based assistance (this is not your bridge card or medicaid number).

We hope you will find this updated process more user friendly than ever before! We look forward to any feedback you are willing to share.  Happy Registering!

Neighborhood Ice Cream Socials

GRPS is striving to provide more inclusive and welcoming events, and believe that transitioning to neighborhood-centric events will meet that goal. After careful consideration, we have decided to cancel the Back to School Celebration. In lieu of having one big event, schools throughout the district are hosting an ice cream social.

A full list of neighborhood events are listed below. For additional details about specific events, please contact the individual building.
