Glacier Ridge Elementary School 05.08.20
Dear Glacier Ridge Families and Polar Bears,
We have completed another week of remote learning and the school year is winding down. Please review and watch for communications from us and the district. On Wednesday, we sent an email to all informing you of the student item pickup/school material drop-off process and scheduled times. We will be following this up with information and a map of how we will move cars through the property.
We miss interacting with our students on a daily basis and we send them virtual high-fives for all their hard work.
Finally we would like to wish all our Glacier Ridge Moms a Happy Mother's Day. May your day be filled with love and joy.
All the best to everyone.
Have a great weekend!
Mr. Jacobsen and Mrs. Adams
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

Online Enrollment for 2020-2021 School Year
Online enrollment for returning families for the 2020-21 school year will be available via ParentVue from May 1 to May 15, 2020. Enrollment is required for all returning District 47 students who will be in 1st-8th grades in the 2020-21 school year. Parents of incoming kindergarteners and early childhood students are exempt from this process.
Online enrollment for returning families helps determine overall student population and assists with appropriate staffing and class size. Note: If your children are NOT returning to District 47 next year, please use online enrollment to indicate this and contact your child’s school.
ParentVue logins and passwords are required to complete online enrollment. Should you need assistance in obtaining your ParentVue login or password, please contact the school office at 815-444-4850. Additional assistance is also available via the parent help desk at 815-788-5080 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

If your proof of residency is out of date, you will be asked to provide an updated copy prior to the start of the 2020-21 school year. For approved forms of proof of residency, please visit Registration Requirements. If your address has changed, please contact your child's school.
Online enrollment must be completed and submitted to confirm student enrollment for the 2020-21 school year. Fees are not required at this time and do not confirm enrollment. Fee statements will be sent prior to the start of the school year.
