Dear Parents,

I hope you are enjoying the summer months.  During the past several weeks, I have had the pleasure of working with teachers and staff to plan for the upcoming school year.  We are excited to begin working with you and your child.  The schedule for the first week of school is listed below:
                                                                                         School Begins            Dismissal
Wednesday               September 6             Half Day         8:25 AM                     11:40 AM
Thursday                   September 7             Half Day         8:25 AM                     11:40 PM
Friday                         September 8             Full Day        8:25 AM                       2:40 PM

* Friday, September 8, 2017 begins regular school hours

The supply list for your child’s grade level was sent home with report cards in June.  Additional copies of the supply list for each grade level can be obtained at:

Kindergarten students will receive a card with their teacher’s name in this packet.  Please pin this card onto your child’s shirt each day for the first week of school so we can escort your child to the appropriate classroom.

The cafeteria will begin serving lunch on September 8, 2017 for students in grades 1-5. Kindergarteners can begin buying lunch on September 18, 2017.  Menus will be distributed to students on the first day of school.  All information including lunch prices can be found on the menus.  Please make checks payable to North Shore Schools for any amount you want to place in your child’s account and write your child’s name and room number in the memo section of your check.  Information pertaining to your child’s lunch account can be obtained online at the district web site or you can call the food service department at 277-7090.

Transportation will be provided for eligible students starting September 6, 2017.   Information pertaining to bus routes will be mailed to your home from the Transportation Department.  If you have any questions, please call the Transportation Department at 277-7930.

Please take a moment to review the enclosed copy of “Procedures for Arrival and Dismissal” with your child.  The building will remain closed until 8:20 AM each morning.  I ask for your cooperation in strictly adhering to these procedures in order to ensure the safety of all our children.  If you are in need of childcare, a registration form from the North Shore Before/Afterschool program can be picked up in the main office.

Please be sure to complete the Dismissal Form and hand in on the first day of school.  Changes to the normal dismissal schedule should be noted using a “Change in Going Home Arrangement” form.  Changes to routine can be made by phone only for emergencies.

Please note that all forms can be found on the Glenwood Landing School website at:

Please mark your calendar for Back to School Night on September 19, 2017.

Enjoy the remainder of the summer vacation.  I look forward to seeing you in September.
