BOE welcomes new member

I hope that you and your family are enjoying those last few beach days but feel, as I do, a sense of excitement as we turn to the new school year ahead. Before we launch into what promises to be an exciting year, I wanted to update the community on a few changes on the Granby Board of Education. 

Planning for autumn

As September begins and summer ends, it’s time to look ahead to fall. School buildings are preparing to open doors and welcome back students and families, and fall sports are gearing up for the new season.

New principal for GMMS

Cheri Burke, Granby’s superintendent of schools, announced that Heather Tanis has been selected as the principal of Granby Memorial Middle School.  

IWWC public hearing continued to SEPT. 13 

At an Aug. 9 public hearing, a 48-unit, four-story apartment complex proposed for 37 Hartford Avenue by Vessel Development of New York, was presented to the Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission (IWWC) for permit approval of its storm water management plan. The review and permits are required because the site includes 932 square feet of wetlands. 

Your Support Matters!

Welcome to the Drummer’s first issue this autumn! During the past several months, we’ve successfully completed our transition to a new editorial team and we’re excited to continue bringing Granby’s news to you in print, on our website and on social media.
