This will be for ALL students (hybrid and remote). Families will receive their materials in a bag, similar to the earlier pick ups this fall.

Parent Teacher Conferences 11/12 & 11/17

We will be sharing a link for you to schedule your conference with your student's teacher. These will be online (Zoom or Blackboard). Parents should sign their students up for a conference. See below (

As a parent, you are your child’s first and most important teacher.

You and the staff at Glen Hill have the same thing in common; we want your child to learn, grow, and do well. When parents and teachers talk, each person brings to the conversation important ways to help your child be successful academically and socially.

Report cards will be posted at 3:30 on 11/9. Here are directions on how to access them in Skyward. If you need to receive a paper copy, please contact the office.

From the Nurse's Desk

With the past couple of months leaving us all with a bit of uncertainty, I wanted to give you some tips on things that you can control. At Glen Hill, we strive for the health and safety of both of our students and staff. The health and wellness of your families lie in your hands. Here are some ways to help:

Monitor Your Health Daily

  • Be alert for symptoms. Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.

    • Especially important if you are running essential errands, going into the office or workplace, and in settings where it may be difficult to keep a physical distance of 6 feet.

  • If you notice symptoms, get tested. Here is a link with testing site around Illinois:

Wash your hands often

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others

  • You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick. The mask is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.

  • Everyone should wear a mask in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

Clean and disinfect

  • Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.

Get your flu shot

  • It’s likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both spread this fall and winter. Healthcare systems could be overwhelmed treating both patients with flu and patients with COVID-19. This means getting a flu vaccine during 2020-2021 is more important than ever.

These tips are from the CDC. If you have any questions, please reach out to your doctor. We have the power to protect ourselves, our families, and those around us. These are simple yet effective ways to be proactive in staying healthy and happy!

Bee well,

Nurse Jenna
