GRADING GUIDELINES- NEW AND UPDATED

Grading guidelines that will be followed for this 4th nine weeks of school have now been released and can be found by clicking on the following links.

English Spanish

At this time, our top priority is the health and well being of our students and their families. Please continue to participate in class activities and assignments as best you can. The purpose of the remote learning and instruction is to keep our students engaged in learning, but not overwhelmed.


Always reach out to the teacher with any question that you have. We appreciate all that you are doing from home and we appreciate you partnering with us!

Teacher Trusted and Created Videos

We are in the process of creating a Glen Loch website devoted strictly to the videos and links that our teachers use in their classrooms and are creating during this time of at home learning. Many of the videos you will have seen linked in the classroom activity packets. Our hope is this will give you one place to not only find those past videos, but trust all the video content that is linked has been Glen Loch approved. Check back often as new videos are uploaded weekly. Please click below and begin your exploration in learning!

Team Lessons

Paper packets continue to be updated on the front porch each Monday at 10:00 AM.


Below you will find buttons/links to each team at Glen Loch. Click the button and you will be taken to an English file and a Spanish file for each grade level and team. Be sure to read the team newsletter cover page for more information.


Keep scrolling to the bottom of this newsletter to find more information about paper packet pick ups. The paper packets will be identical to the lessons you find here electronically.

WHEN and HOW will my child be RECEIVING his or her work?

  • Option 1: Parents can print the work for their student to complete.
  • Option 2: Parents without internet or printer access may pick up the work from the front porch of the school each Monday at 10 AM.
The assignments will be the same regardless if you print or pick up.

Please practice social distancing when you come to pick up the work.

WHEN and HOW will my child be expected to RETURN their work?

If at all possible, we are asking that no paper copies of assignments be returned to the school. Students may return their work to their teacher in one of two ways:


  • Option 1: Completed pages may be uploaded into your child's SeeSaw account.
**All teachers will provide information to parents regarding class SeeSaw accounts.
  • Option 2: Teachers will provide their email addresses in the weekly newsletters. Parents can take a picture of their child's work and email directly to the teacher.
**Any parent needing assistance on how the photographs can be shared to the teacher's email, please let the teacher or school know and we can help with this.

Will my child be required to use the internet to complete their assignments?

Students will be given a variety of assignments and can choose those with or without a need for internet. Assignments are able to be completed without the use of any digital resources. Teachers will provide weekly links and websites that can be used to further your child's learning, but will not be required.

Health News from Mrs. Clough, School Nurse

While the school is closed for the COVID-19, I will be sharing health tips that you can review with your children at home. The last few weeks I have been reviewing healthy habits such as washing our hands and covering our coughs and sneezes. Hand sanitizer is a great alternative, BUT nothing beats soap and water!


Let’s be proactive and follow the advice below from the CDC:

  • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home and this includes errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. Avoid close contact with people who are sick by keeping that person in another room and limit contact with them. You don’t want to forget them but limit them being in the same room with others who are not ill.
  • AVOID touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way!
  • Cover coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue and then dispose of the tissue OR cough/sneeze into your elbow.
  • Wash your hands for 20 seconds. Wash your hands often can prevent the spread of germs. If you cannot wash your hands with soap and water, then use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60-95% alcohol. Young children - ages 4 and under need help and guidance with handwashing properly. I tell the kids to wash their hands for the time it takes to sing the “Happy Birthday” song.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces or objects. Clean frequently touched surfaces at home. Have the kids clean the doorknobs daily and faucets and counters. This is a great way to get them involved and help you!


At this time, our country and community want to limit the spread of the virus so following social distancing and the above advise can help with this.


Social distancing is staying around 3-6 feet from other people and not hugging or shaking hands. This does not mean you cannot take your children outside for fresh air and to take a walk or play, but remind them to not run up and hug their friend at this time.


Have your child and family watch this you tube video on handwashing and how germs spread:

Here is an easy to understand video for kids to learn about the COVID-19 virus:
