Absenteeism

Parents are asked to please phone the school at 403-777-8320 if your child will be late or absent. Your assistance in reducing the number of phone calls we make to homes is greatly appreciated. Outside school hours, there is an answering machine to take your calls. Please give your name, the child’s name and teacher and the reason for the late/absence.

Before and After School Care

We do have onsite before and after school care and the provider is Calgary Child’s Play.  Their phone number is 587-216-7003.

Lunchroom

Lunchroom facilities are available to all Glenbrook students, Grades 1 – 6. The cost is $220.00 per student per year, plus a $10.00 Activity Fee to cover costs incurred by inclement weather, etc. If you take advantage of the lunchroom program, payment for the month you begin the program and June is required at the time of registration. The lunchroom facility costs $145.00 for bussed students who pay a transportation fee and fill out the Registration Form for Lunchroom Services (if you have not done so, please have your student pick up the form from the office.) Students may also access the lunchroom facility on a drop-in basis. The cost is $5.00 per student per day. Please remember that lunches should not contain any nuts or nut products. Glenbrook Lunchroom does not supply utensils or have a microwave. Please ensure your child has the necessary cutlery in his or her lunch bag and that the lunch contents do not need warming in a microwave.

School Parking

Please remember that the parking lot is reserved for staff only. Please park on the street when dropping off and picking up your children, including Kindergarten students, or when visiting the school. Thank-you for your support in protecting our children.

Volunteers at Glenbrook School

The CBE recognizes the value and encourages the use of volunteers in all its schools. Our volunteer policy and conditions of volunteering were developed to ensure and maintain a safe and secure learning and working environment for all students and staff. To ensure the safety of the students in all CBE schools, all volunteers must complete a Volunteer Registration Form. This form is only valid for the current school year. In addition, all volunteers must have a Security Clearance Check processed through the Calgary City Police Services prior to volunteering. The form and security clearance remains in effect for five years. Police Clearance from other agencies is not accepted. You must have Police Clearance through the Calgary Board of Education to volunteer in a school. Clearance can take 1 – 3 months so please embark on this simple process to ensure you are eligible to volunteer when the opportunity arises over the course of your child’s education. Forms are available from the school office.
