Parents! We want to remind everyone of the withdraw procedure that is in place at Glenwood. If you are planning on moving your student from Glenwood to another school, you should pick up a withdraw form in the office (or your child can bring it home). This ensures that we have all the information needed to process the withdrawal. Teachers can collect outstanding work, library and classroom books as well as Chromebooks can be accounted for which avoids unnecessary fines and fees and the office will have account of what school should be requesting records. Outstanding fees also need to be paid and lockers should also be completely cleaned out prior to leaving.

Once we get a records request from the new school we will send them everything they need to enroll the student. We cannot withdraw a child from our building without proof that they are enrolled elsewhere. Following this procedure avoids unnecessary attendance calls home and accurate grade recording. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Has your family moved recently? Are you getting married or divorced or have custody changes for your student? We need documentation of these events for the students permanent records, so don’t forget to let us know and please drop off copies to the office.
