Dear Glenview Parents/Guardians:
On behalf of Glenview Elementary School, I would like to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year. I hope you and your children have enjoyed a relaxing and fun summer and are ready to begin a great year at Glenview. We look forward to welcoming back all of our returning students and parents, and to meeting the many new families who will be joining Glenview Elementary this year. To each and every one of you – our warmest of welcomes!
Our first day of school will be on Tuesday, August 29, 2017. Our school campus will open at 7:30am daily, with an opportunity for students to eat breakfast and/or walk laps to music before school. Staff will be available to direct your child to their class line and assigned teachers.
Class Placements - New this year, you will be able to find out your child's class placement via the Parent Portal. Class lists will no longer be posted as traditionally done in the past for reasons of student privacy & confidentiality. All student class placement information will be available on the Parent Portal starting at 4:00pm on Friday, August 25th. A special Parent Link call will go out to Glenview families with important first day of school reminders and your child's teacher assigned for the upcoming school year on the eve of Monday, August 28th. If you are unable to access your Parent Portal account, you may contact the school office or our district's technology help desk at 714-985-8733 for any log-in issues.
Please note that class placements are tentative for the first two weeks of school due to changing enrollment during this time. We are unable to honor parent requests for changes in class placements until the enrollment stabilizes, which will be after the first two weeks of school. Our teachers have worked diligently in determining the best placement for every child. While we understand that this may sometimes conflict with your preference, there are so many elements that come into play with these decisions, of which only our teachers can be fully aware. Your patience and trust in this process is therefore requested and very much appreciated.
Once again, welcome back! We look forward to working with you and your children this year. If at any time throughout the school year you have a question or need assistance, please give us a call at 714-986-7150. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, August 29th.
Principal, Alondra Ramos & Glenview Staff
