    Dear Glenn Dale Families,

     

    We are asking for a little patience as we open for our Hybrid students and as teachers take on the role of Hybrid and Virtual teacher.  The Virtual Learning Schedule will not change and all students who are participating in Virtual Learning will continue to log on each day from home. 

     

    We will embark on our first day of Hybrid Learning for students with last names on the following dates:

     

    Last Names Starting with K-Z  will report on Thursday, April 8th and Friday, April 9th and every Thursday and Friday until the end of the school year.

     

    Last Names  Starting with A-J will report on Monday, April 12th which is a 2 hour early dismissal day 11:55 and Tuesday, April 13th and every Monday and Tuesday until the end of the year.

     

    Virtual Learning on April 12th will end at the lunch break at 10:45AM.

     

    Wednesday's will remain VIRTUAL LEARNING FOR ALL STUDENTS AND STAFF. 

    Students will only be admitted on their designated days for HYBRID learning. 


    FACE MASKS are MANDATORY and MUST be worn over the mouth and nose area. Masks must be worn at the bus stop, on the school bus and during the day at school. Consider sending an extra mask in the students backpack for emergency use.



    Please be sure your child is at the bus stop at least 10 minutes before their scheduled pick up time.





    Students will need to bring their Chromebook and Charger to school each day. Be sure it is placed carefully in their backpack. We will label the Chromebooks and Chargers at school on the first day.






    School Smart Plastic Pencil Box, Red Tint - SCHOOL SPECIALTY MARKETPLACE

    Students will be provided a plastic case to keep a few supplies in at school. Students will need to bring the following items only for individual use:Crayons or Colored Pencils, 2 Pencils, Scissors, glue stick ​ and a small pack of tissues. All items will be kept in a personal plastic box for sanitizing and storing on the days the students are not in class.

       Optional: personal hand sanitizer. 



    ​​

    Kindergarten students will be given a safety vest to wear on the bus. They must wear the vest each day to and from school. Replacement cost of the vest is $5.00.  A parent or guardian must meet all kindergarten students at the bus stop.






    We will put a small colored loop on each student's book bag to identify afternoon buses. Please do not remove the color coded loop.







    Breakfast and Lunches are FREE for ALL students. Students will also have the option of taking home a FREE dinner at the end of each of their assigned Hybrid Learning Days. Students may elect to bring their own lunch.




    Student car riders may not arrive at school before 7:25AM. Drop off will be in the front of the school only.

     

    Afternoon car riders may be picked up between 1:35-2:00 in the rear of the building off of Glen Avenue.



    Students do not have to wear a uniform, but may if they want. Students may not wear tank tops or open toed shoes. Please dress according to the weather and consider sending a sweater as we will have the AC units on the majority of the day to circulate air. 




    Hybrid students will bring home a Hybrid Learning Agreement that must be signed and returned.  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1R_O8rE_KvOL3c4eoC5sVGOxjm9xHkGf8/view?usp=sharing
