Message from the Principal

Students & Parents,

We have enjoyed a wonderful start to the 22-23 school year, and attribute that to the consistency of our staff and the cooperation of our students and families. Thank you for making this one of the best starts to the school year that we have experienced at GLOW!

If you haven't checked out our 22-23 Student/Parent Handbook we encourage you to do so; however, in the coming weeks, we will highlight information from the handbook in our weekly newsletter to ensure students and families understand and are in compliance with our guidelines and expectations for student success.

This week, we encourage you to reach the GLOW Attendance Policy. Student success begins with being on time and present at school. Please note that:

  • Communication about your student's absence should be communicated in writing to your student's Leadership Advisory Teacher within 48 hours of their return to school.
  • Excessive unexcused tardies and absences will be referred to the GLOW Attendance Council and can impact student grades, course credits, and ultimately grade level promotion.
  • In the next couple of weeks we look forward to rolling out our new GLOW Safety Call, which will notify parents each day that their child is not present in school. We will let you know when that service is ready to begin.

Thank you for being our partners to ensure a successful school year for our students. We are excited about the phenomenal start we have shared and look forward to a great year with each of you.

Kate B. Tayloe
