Dear Glencoe Families,

As you know, I will be retiring at the end of this school year. Earlier today, Superintendent Scott announced that my successor has been selected: Claudia Ruf, currently the principal of Mountain View Middle School in Beaverton.

In 1992, Ms. Ruf began her educational career instructing Spanish at the college level in College Station, Texas, and then transitioned to teaching high school Spanish in Bryan, Texas, two years later. In 1995, she became dean of students in Holland, Michigan, and spent nine years there before moving to Oregon to become the assistant principal at Beaverton High School in 2004. After six years at Beaverton High School, she accepted her present role at Mountain View in 2010.

Ms. Ruf was selected after an extensive hiring process, in which a Glencoe student and parent sat on the interview team, and that included a community forum at the school this past Tuesday evening (March 31). She is a strong, well-respected leader who is excited to continue the rich tradition of excellence at Glencoe High School. She will officially assume her new position on July 1, 2015.

Please join me in welcoming her.

Roll Tide!

Bob Macauley

Importance of Regular Attendance                     

Research shows that attendance is the single most important factor in school success.  Here’s how you can improve your student’s school attendance:

  • Talk to your son/daughter about why it’s important to attend school regularly (and on time).
  • Avoid scheduling family trips and doctor appointments during school hours.
  • Make sure your son/daughter stays healthy by eating nutritious food and getting enough sleep and exercise.
  • Don’t accept excuses for why your student “must” miss or be late for school.
  • Support school rules and consequences for skipping class and being tardy.

Please contact the Attendance Office staff or school counselor if you have questions or concerns about your son/daughter’s school attendance.
