GLEN GROVE NEWS

HOUR OF CODE

Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet. But fewer than half of all schools teach computer science. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this! If you've heard about the Hour of Code TM before, you might know it made history. More than 100 million students have tried an Hour of Code TM since it's start in 2013.

Students at Glen Grove are participating again this year in the annual Hour of Code TM campaign.   Ask your student to show you what they learned with coding in our iSucceed course this year.   

Dismissal Arrangements

Dismissal Arrangements

​If you need to change the after school pick-up arrangements for your child, please call our office before 2:00 PM to inform us of the changes.  There is a lot going on in a school office both at the beginning and the end of school day.  By calling before 2:00 PM, you are giving the front office staff the time needed to locate classroom teachers and communicate the message regarding the pick-up arrangements for your child in a timely manner.

Illinois Text Messaging and Cell Phone Laws

In school zones, it is a statewide law that unless the vehicle is parked in a parking space, or a handsfree device is used, drivers may not operate cell phones. This applies to buses as well as any other vehicles operating within the school zone. Fines for violation of Illinois cell phone law start at $75. Illinoisʼs cell phone and texting laws are considered “primary” laws. A primary law means that an officer can pull you over for the offense without having to witness some other violation. PLEASE DO NOT TALK OR TEXT IN THE GLEN GROVE SCHOOL ZONE. IT IS FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR STUDENTS.
