Parent Tips

If your child is absent, please send a note when he/she returns to school. 

Please notify the main office of any phone number or address changes.

Please remember to bring a form of picture identification when picking up your child during school or at dismissal. 

School Security
All visitors must enter through the main office.

Students will only be released to authorized people with photo identification as listed on the student dismissal form. For safety reasons, changes for student dismissal will not be accepted by telephone. Please have ID readily available when entering the building.

Lost and Found 
Please check the lost and found near the main office if your child has left an article of clothing in school.

Please be sure your child is in the uniform every day and wears a coat on cold days.

Parents/guardians are encouraged to regularly communicate with school staff to establish a partnership for the success of every Glenside child. Every attempt is made to respond to e-mail communications and telephone messages within 24 hours when received during school hours.

To ensure availability, meetings with classroom teachers, support teachers, the school counselor, the school nurse, and the principal are by appointment.
