Please visit the Glamorgan School site through August for any system updates regarding school start up.
Our first day of classes is Thursday , Sept. 1, 2022 and the school office is open to parents on Monday, Aug. 29, 2022.
Kindergarten will be on a staggered entry for September 1 and 2. If you are unsure which day your child starts their first day of classes, please contact the office starting August 29, 2022.
Grade One to Nine students will have bus service available beginning on September 1. Kindergarten students will begin to ride the bus on September 6th.
Homerooms & Classrooms
During the first three days that teachers are back at work in August they will be emailing their class of students to introduce themselves and inform you of your children’s classroom number and teacher. Entrance areas by grade will be similar to this past school year which will be sent out via School Messenger prior to the first day of classes as a reminder and/or for new students. On September 1 Kindergarten students will be picked up by their teachers at the furthest North West doors on the compound to the main school, and taken directly to their classrooms.
Grade One and Two teachers will meet and gather their class of students in the gym. All teachers for Grade Three to Nine will be outdoors prior to school beginning to gather their class. Signs will be posted for Grade and Room numbers, to assist with this process.

The following schedule for Grades 1-6 is adopted by our lunchroom supervisors in order to provide a safe and welcoming environment to eat.
12:30 PM - 12:50 PM
12:50 PM - 1:11 PM
Students will eat at their desks in their Homerooms until attendance is taken. Students are then allowed to visit and socialize while eating. Students are not allowed to share drink/food.
Pre-bell Announcement: Silent/Quiet time to allow students to have time to focus on finishing their lunch and tidying up their eating area. If a bathroom break is needed during lunch, students are to raise their hands and ask for permission.
12:30 PM - 12:50 PM
12:50 PM - 1:11 PM
- Good Weather: Students are dismissed to the outdoors for fresh air and exercise.
- Poor Weather: Go to the gym for dance/movement exercises OR Go on a supervised walk with exercises interspersed throughout the hallways
The goals of the lunch program are:
- To provide a safe, clean and welcoming environment for students to eat a healthy lunch
- To provide a relaxing space for visiting/socializing with friends
- To provide an opportunity for students to have body movement, both in times of outdoor and indoor lunch (poor weather conditions)
