District 35 Updates
Our E-Learning launched on Monday, March 16th with active users across the schools. While we know it is an adjustment, we are pleased to be able to build a foundation of communication and engagement experiences for our students. If you run into any technical issues, do not hesitate to reach out to our support line (eHelp@glencoeschools.org). We thank you for your patience and partnership as we navigate this new experience.
During the school closures, the Board of Education offices will operate with limited staffing to ensure that essential operations remain from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm on weekdays. All administrators will be available via email as they work remotely. Should you need to contact us for any additional support, please call 847-835-7820 or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Our ability to pull together and take these next steps with care and compassion is already making a difference. Please take care and reach out if you need anything.
PTO Spring Appeal
Did you know that in 2018-2019, the Glencoe PTO contributed nearly $200,000 to Glencoe School District 35?
While your tax dollars help pay for the basic requirements of our children’s education, donating to the Glencoe PTO ensures they receive an educational experience that goes well beyond the basics.
Please click here to help us enhance our schools by making a tax-deductible donation in any amount. Every dollar makes a difference!
Did you know that the results of the 2020 Census will help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding are allocated? Census Day is April 1, 2020. Census results impact how money will be allocated moving forward to the Village, District 35, Glencoe Park District, the State of Illinois, area hospitals and other critical organizations. Between March 12-20, nearly every Glencoe household will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census from either a postal worker or a census worker. Click here for more information.

Safe Routes to Schools
District 35 is pleased to have partnered with the Village of Glencoe and the Active Transportation Steering Committee to develop updated Safe Routes to Schools information.

The school district may release directory information which includes:
Birth date and place
Parent(s)/guardian(s) name and address
Period of attendance in school
Additionally, student pictures without identifying information may be posted on the district web page with informational pieces. Any parent(s)/guardian(s) may prohibit the release of any or all of the above by delivering a written objection to the Building Principal.
If your child will be absent from school, please call the District 35 absence line (847-835-7801) to report the absence. In addition, if your child participates in a Park District class after school, please be mindful that you must also call and report your child’s absence to the Park District. Thank you!
