If you could give the world anything, what would you give it?
Is there something outside of school you would love to learn?

Hello Glen Hill Families!
The sun is shining, the grass is greener, and April showers bring...spring allergies. Springtime is a great time of year to get outside and enjoy nice weather, but it also can bring on runny noses, itchy eyes, and sneezing. And while allergies can be a nuisance, it is important to recognize not only how our students get allergies, like through the air and food, but what symptoms they may exhibit-- and knowing which ones are life-threatening.
An allergy occurs when the body’s immune system sees a substance as harmful and overreacts to it. The symptoms that result are an allergic reaction. The substances that cause allergic reactions are allergens. Allergens can get into your body many ways to cause an allergic reaction.
You can inhale allergens into your nose and your lungs. Many are small enough to float through the air. Examples are pollen, house dust, mold spores, cat and dog dander and latex dust.
You can ingest allergens by mouth. This includes food and medicines you eat or swallow.
Your body can have allergens injected into it. This includes medicine given by needle and venom from insect stings and bites.
Your skin can absorb allergens. Plants such as poison ivy, sumac and oak can cause reactions when touched. Latex, metals, and ingredients in beauty care and household products are other examples.
Below you can find symptoms of allergic reactions. Symptoms marked with “***” are life-threatening and need immediate medical attention. Remember, if you have any questions about allergies or suspect your student may have allergies, please reach out to your doctor for further guidance.
Prevention is key. Be alert for these symptoms presented by your child (or even yourself!) and visit your doctor. You could save a life...or just make your day a little less sneezy!

Spring Weather Tips
Even as spring arrives, we still have days where the weather is winter-like!
Make sure your student is dressed for the weather. They need snow pants, boots, hats, and gloves/mittens to be able to play outside in the snow. If they wear boots to school, they must have gym shoes to participate in PE.
Car Line Routines & Reminders
- Do not use cell phones while driving in the parking lot.
- Do not get out of your car while in the car line.
- There is NO LEFT TURN out of our parking lot.
- We will try to get cars moving through the line as quickly as possible. Do not pull out of the line, as that slows down traffic. We will direct cars to pull out if necessary.
- We encourage families to park along Glen Hill Drive and walk up to the school if they do not want to wait in the parking lot. Signs are posted where parking is allowed along Glen Hill Drive.
- When our busses pull into the bus lane in the mornings, they will honk before pulling in. This is because they need a wider turn when approaching the bus lane safely.
Bus LaneThese are reserved for our busses. Please park in the parking lot when arriving at Glen Hill. Do not use the bus lane during the school day.
Need Help from the Office? Make an AppointmentPlease remember that the beginning and end of the day are very hectic for everyone. If you stop by to see someone in the office during these times, we will ask you to wait until we've taken care of students. You can always make an appointment to see us. This can save you time in your day.
Severe Weather DismissalWhen we have inclement weather, we do not want to send students outside to wait for their rides home. We will hold students in the building and call them out to the cars once a family arrives. If there is enough time, we will send out an email blast notifying families of the dismissal process as it occurs.
For walkers, please pick up your student at the back of the new gym. We will dismiss all walkers out the back door (Door 12)
Car riders will exit Door 13. Please do not stand close to Door 13, since that slows down our ability to safely get students from the building.
