Hello!

 We can't wait to host you for our Parent Info Nights this week!  Teachers will present about the curriculum and give you a window into your child's day.  This is an evening designed for parents and guardians.  There will not be activities for students. 

Morning Kindergarten parents should come on Tuesday, Sept. 26th, from 6-6:45 pm.

Afternoon Kindergarten parents should come on Tuesday, Sept. 26th, from 7-7:45 pm.

Preschool parents should come on Wednesday, Sept. 27th, from 6-6:45 pm.

We hope to see you!!!

 

Please pay attention to the reminders about pick-up and drop-off that were in Woody's Bi-Weekly.  Things get especially busy during morning pick-up time.  If you pull off to the right you are in the drive-up pick-up line.  Once the buses have loaded, we will motion you forward to load between the crosswalks.  Staff will bring your student right out to your car and will load students from the curb side.  If you wish to park and walk up to get your student, please use the parking lot.  Kindergarten ends at 11:15.  Even with all the congestion, we had all students loaded in their cars at 11:23 on Monday, so even if the line seems long, whether you're waiting in the drive-up line, or waiting for a parking spot, it doesn't take long to clear it.  Cars pulling in and out of that line on the right, and loading there as people are driving in, create an unsafe situation for students and drivers.  Your cooperation will help to keep everyone safe, and will help us to dismiss all students in an organized way, as quickly and efficiently as possible.  Thanks for your help with this.  

All the best,

Kindergarten is a half-day program. The morning session runs from 8:45 to 11:15 am, and the afternoon session runs from 12:30 to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday following the Goffstown School District calendar. Parents will be able to indicate their preference for AM or PM session on the enrollment paperwork. If parent requests exceed session capacity, a lottery will be used to determine those students who will be placed in the session.

AM transportation to the school is available to kindergarten students via their neighborhood bus. There is no mid-day transportation provided by the school district. However for those parents needing extended care, several community day-care providers do offer transportation mid-day to and from their programs. PM students may take advantage of their neighborhood bus for transportation home at the end of the day.

 

The Glen Lake School provides a learning environment that enables children to acquire cognitive, social, emotional, and motor skills that are the foundation for all future learning. Such an environment is based upon the following beliefs: 

Volunteer Fingerprinting

Volunteers do not need to make an appointment during these open times, just check in with the receptionist at the SAU office. You will need a photo identification and a personal check or money order for $20.75 made payable to State of NH - Criminal Records (which per-Goffstown policy can be reimbursed once you document five hours of volunteer time). Cash payment will no longer be accepted.
