The faculty and staff welcome your child to the Thomas E. Glasgow Elementary School.

Our staff effectively teaches and guides students to grow academically, socially and behaviorally.  With your assistance as parents/guardians, the Thomas E. Glasgow Community sets the course for an enthusiastic educational experience. Our students impact the community confidently by becoming socially responsible and productive members of our society.

We provide a positive, lifelong-learning foundation where both academics and social needs are nurtured and encouraged. We truly believe that learning is a continual journey where we are partners in meeting our children’s diverse needs.

We will do our very best to keep you informed of the activities and information you will need this year.   We welcome your feedback and look forward to seeing you.   We hope that you will feel free to visit or call us.

School closed Friday, 2/3/23

School closed Friday, 2/3/23

The weather forecast for Friday and Saturday features atypical, concerning cold weather.  As you know, our district features a mix of modes of student commute to school, and a robust slate of co-curricular activities which are scheduled throughout the coming days.

Given the dangerous temperatures which are predicted, school on Friday, February 3rd, 2023 is cancelled, and an emergency closure day will be used.

Typically, when such emergency closures are made, co-curricular activities are similarly-cancelled.  For the most part, this will still be the case, but certain pre-arranged co-curricular activities will be allowed to proceed, so long as additional layers of safety/student protection are applied.  These considerations have been addressed with the Advisors.  So, unless students and parents receive a different communication from the Coach/Advisor, co-curricular activities are also cancelled tomorrow evening (February 3rd), and on Saturday, February 4th.
