At the beginning of the school year, CBE made the decision to continue to implement tapa bocas (mask) as part of health measures.  At Escuela Glenmeadows, we decided to keep all the health measures we had back in June, such as class cohorts, having cohort designated P.E areas inside and outside, designated areas for cohorts for hora de recreo (recess times), eating in the classroom, and many others.  We feel that we have been responsive and responsible in our approach to keep our students and staff safe and avoided any back and forth measures.  Continuity in school organization for students and staff promotes a sense of security and enhances our time to place our efforts into a high standard for teaching. We are very grateful to the parents who supported us with the continuation of the health measures this year.  Your apoyo (support) for your children and the school are evident todos los dias (everyday)!

At Escuela Glenmeadows School, we continue to build strong positive relationships with students as we get to know them personally and as learners on a daily basis.  Teachers are engaged in doing pre-assessments to calibrate where students are at various subject areas.  A friendly reminder that during our online “Meet the Teacher" on September 23 and 24, teachers will listen to you to get to know more about your children.  For this meeting, no progress reports will be given as we are getting to know students, and the data that we have now is not yet a substantial body of evidence.

Por favor (Please) know that I will be away from September 17 to September 27, 2021, to attend to personal family matters.  If you require assistance, please contact Carmen Fandino, Assistant Principal , who will take my role.  Our Learning Leaders, Sra. Gysler and Srta. Rivas will take turns taking on the Assistant Principals position during my absence.  They will have a couple of substitutes each in their classrooms during these days.​
