THANK YOU TO OUR GLEN HILL FAMILIES

This year has definitely had its ups and downs. We've done some really good things and had some missteps along the way. Thank you for your patience and support throughout the entire school year. We appreciate everything you do to help make Glen Hill a great school.

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.

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.

Second Grade Requirements for 21-22 School Year

Illinois law requires a dental examination must be submitted for ALL 2nd grade students. Copies of the form can be found on our website.

From the Nurse's Desk

This is the time of year when students and parents alike get sick often. Germs thrive in this weather; they like to hop from person to person when it is cold, making our days full of tissues and sneezes. However, these steps can make spreading germs (and, as a result, not getting sick!) less likely.


  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, them throw the tissue in the trash

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

  • Keep kids home if they are not feeling well — and stay home if you're sick

  • Wash your hands for AT LEAST 20 seconds, and encourage your kids to do the same!

Hand washing is the number one way to help prevent getting sick. We remind students to wash hands or use hand sanitizer when entering the school, before lunch/recess, before eating, after coughing or sneezing, and any time they go to the bathroom.

An easy way to remember, if you sing the song “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” twice, you’ve hit that 20 second mark...you are all clean and good to go!

With that being said, encourage your children to wash their hands wherever they go. And if your student is ever feeling ill, make sure to keep them home to rest. We can all help to make a great habit while also making sure our kids stay happy and healthy!

We have spent some time during announcements going over the expectations teachers may have in the classroom or as they are moving throughout the building. Using the letters in CHAMPS, students are taught what they should be doing in different activities.
