You will need to keep your Chromebook updated in order to keep up with the programs that Queen Bee School District 16 is using. It is also a great practice to shut your Chromebook completely down every night. Shutting down will update your Chromebook automatically when an update is available.

Bringing Books & Materials Back to Glen Hill

We are accepting any classroom materials and books we have given students throughout the year. For students who are returning to in person learning, they can bring all items back to school with them. For our remote learning students, next time you are at Glen Hill, you can bring all items to the office to drop them off.

Kids A-Z

Our teachers use Raz-Kids with your students. It is an online reading platform that gives students access to hundreds of interactive leveled E-Books that are aligned to Illinois Learning Standards. We invite parents to use this site and have access to their students' activity. Ask your student's teacher for more information.

Notfiying the Office With Attendance Changes

Please remember to include our secretaries when you are making plans for your students to be out of school or will be absent. It's important for the safety of students to make sure we are aware of changes.

From the Nurse's Desk

The sun is shining, the grass is greener, and April showers bring...spring allergies. Springtime is a great time of year to get outside and enjoy nice weather, but it also can bring on runny noses, itchy eyes, and sneezing. And while allergies can be a nuisance, it is important to recognize not only how our students get allergies, like through the air and food, but what symptoms they may exhibit-- and knowing which ones are life-threatening.


An allergy occurs when the body’s immune system sees a substance as harmful and overreacts to it. The symptoms that result are an allergic reaction. The substances that cause allergic reactions are allergens. Allergens can get into your body many ways to cause an allergic reaction.

  • You can inhale allergens into your nose and your lungs. Many are small enough to float through the air. Examples are pollen, house dust, mold spores, cat and dog dander and latex dust.

  • You can ingest allergens by mouth. This includes food and medicines you eat or swallow.

  • Your body can have allergens injected into it. This includes medicine given by needle and venom from insect stings and bites.

  • Your skin can absorb allergens. Plants such as poison ivy, sumac and oak can cause reactions when touched. Latex, metals, and ingredients in beauty care and household products are other examples.

Below you can find symptoms of allergic reactions. Symptoms marked with “***” are life-threatening and need immediate medical attention. Remember, if you have any questions about allergies or suspect your student may have allergies, please reach out to your doctor for further guidance.

Prevention is key. Be alert for these symptoms presented by your child (or even yourself!) and visit your doctor. You could save a life...or just make your day a little sneezy!

Bee well,

Nurse Jenna

Imagination Neighborhood Podcast-From Second Step

In this episode, you’ll get a chance to meet the people who make the magic happen in The Imagine Neighborhood. We talk about our backgrounds and identities, and how we each brought our own unique perspectives to the Imagine Equity series. We also discuss what excited us about this series, some uncomfortable moments in the process, how we work together, and our hopes for the future. We’re a quirky, fun, and wicked-smart group, if I do say so myself! I hope you’ll take a listen and get to know us a little better.
