We have been experiencing several technical issues at Grace Lutheran Church and School this week. Both the website and email went down on Monday afternoon. The website is back, but our employees are still not receiving emails to any @graceriverforest address. If you sent an email since Monday afternoon, it has not been received by us. Please be patient with us during this ordeal. We will let you know when we become fully operational again. In the meantime, please call the school office with any messages.
