Holbrook Collective Values
At Holbrook Elementary, we value empathy and teamwork. We appreciate and welcome the experiences and expertise from all in our learning community.
Holbrook Elementary is a BK-4th grade elementary school serving about 450 students. Holbrook is located in the city of Grand Ledge just blocks away from Grand Ledge High School and Beagle Middle School. Thanks to the Grand Ledge community, Holbrook reopened as an elementary school beginning in the 2021-2022 school year with a new addition of classrooms for grades Kindergarten, third, and fourth. Holbrook also has a new playground, gymnasium, and updated student furniture in all classrooms.
Holbrook is well supported by an outstanding Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) that works collaboratively with school staff to provide our students with school supplies, field trips, special events/assemblies, and school experiences that create memories to last a lifetime.
Our students have outstanding educators that empower students to be lifelong learners. We pride ourselves on setting high expectations for all staff, students, and families and work to ensure that all individuals of our school community reach their true potential. You can count on us to be committed, positive, competent, and collaborative educators. We will count on you to collaborate with us to foster a positive, engaged school community.
If you would like to learn more about our wonderful school, please contact our office. We would be happy to answer any questions and host you and your family for a visit.

Welcome Back - 2022-2023
Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! I am very excited to lead Holbrook Elementary as principal. Our entire Holbrook staff is looking forward to working with our students and families.
We are unable to provide supervision prior to 8:40 a.m. and after 4:05 p.m., unless your child is enrolled in Adventure Club (517-925-5787). To further our safety and security measures, our doors will remain locked until 8:40 a.m. each morning. Please keep this in mind if you are providing transportation for your children or if your children walk to school.
LUNCH | BREAKFAST & MORNING ROUTINE
All students will be offered breakfast and lunch this school year. Due to nationwide waivers for federally funded meal programs, school meals were free to all students through much of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, these waivers were not extended for the 2022-2023 school year, so Grand Ledge Public Schools will begin charging again for breakfast and lunch. Cold Breakfast: $1.75 Hot Breakfast: $2.00 Lunch: $2.75 Free or reduced-priced meals are available to students who qualify for these benefits. We encourage ALL families, regardless of income, to complete and submit a short, confidential school meal application prior to the start of the school year to ensure that there are no gaps in meal benefits for students who qualify for free or reduced-price meals.
If you wish for your child to have school breakfast, they may enter the building at 8:40 a.m. at door #14 and breakfast will be served in the cafeteria. All other students will be directed to our playground beginning at 8:40 a.m. During inclement weather, students will have access to the building beginning at 8:40 a.m. We will transition all students into the building beginning at 8:50 a.m. and instruction will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m.
A general grade level supply list can be found on the Holbrook Page of the District Website. If your child is in need of a backpack, please contact the main office at (517) 925-5480.
