• Back to School Information

    Posted by Angelique Saiz on 8/9/2020

    Welcome Back to School Scorpions! We are so excited to start the year with you all! 

    Please remember that students are learning virtually until it is determined it is safe for in-person learning to resume.  School begins virtually on Monday.  No students should report to campus on the first day of school, Monday, August 10th.  

     Students who are engaging in In-Person Learning (now Distance Learning while we are not on campus – all teachers will be using Google Classroom for instruction):

    • Teachers have been contacting families to introduce themselves. You can view their Meet the Teacher videos on the Discovery website.  Go to ‘School Information’, and then ‘Grade Level Websites’.
    • Log in to your Google Classroom at 7:45am on Monday, August 10th.
    • You may pick up a paper Learning Packet (to use alongside your Google Classroom instruction OR to use independently if you do not have internet access) starting Monday morning at 7:00am.  You will find these in cubbies located outside the cafeteria and outside the front office.  Look for your child’s grade level and take a packet!  These will be available all week.
    • Paper Learning Packets will be created by your child’s teacher and include a week’s worth of instruction.  They can be used with your student’s Google Classroom instruction. 
    • If needed, you may pick up a bag of basic school supplies from our front office during office hours, Monday through Friday from 7:15am to 3:30pm. 

     

    Students who are engaging in GEO Learning (Glendale Elementary Online Learning – GESD’s ONLINE program):

    • Students will access GEO through Canvas.  See the attachment for more information.
    • If needed, you may pick up a bag of basic school supplies from our front office during office hours, Monday through Friday from 7:15am to 3:30pm. 
    • Visit the GEO website under the 'Schools' tab on the GESD website at www.gesd40.org.
    • You will be receiving emails with more information/videos regarding GEO.

     

    Beginning August 10th, lunch distribution will be Monday through Friday, 10:30am to 12:00pm.  It will still be curbside pickup and breakfast and lunch will be provided at the same time.  Please bring your student’s school ID to receive a meal.  If you do not have a school ID, we will have rosters to verify your student’s enrollment.

    We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through many moving pieces.  Please continue to check our school website and Facebook pages for the most current information.  We are excited to begin another great school year together!  See you Monday (virtually)!
