  • Protocol for Homework Requests

    If a student is leaving early for vacation, they are responsible for gathering their homework upon their return outside of class time. Teachers will not be able to provide these assignments in advance.

    If a student is absent other than vacations, the student or his/her parents may request missed assignments by emailing individual teachers before 10:00 a.m. Please note that e-mail is the preferred method to contact teachers. Staff email addresses can be found on Central School’s website under the staff directory tab. The requested assignments will be placed in the homework bin, located in the vestibule, by the end of that school day. There are some teachers who use the homework hotline...LEARN MORE »

  • Sixth Grade Cultural Arts

    To enhance their study of ancient cultures, on September 16th, sixth graders will learn to be archaeologists. Andy Hershberger from the Field Museum will visit our students.

Students will practice scientific illustration and make inferences about the origins of fossils. Many thanks to the Glencoe PTO for sponsoring this experience.

  • On Time Arrival

    Arriving late to school is a problem because it impacts the student who is late to class, the teacher instructing class and the other students engaged in the learning process.

We are asking that both parents and students make every effort to arrive to school on time. In advance, we thank you for your attention to this important expectation.
