Help Us Help One of Our GHS Students

A junior at Glencoe was recently diagnosed with cancer.  While insurance covers the medical expenses, the family could really use financial help to cover basic necessities such as food, clothing, etc.  Please go to  to see how you can help.


Importance of Regular Attendance 

As we enter the second half of our school year, it is critical that parents and students consider the importance of regular school attendance.  Glencoe has a significant number of students who are chronically absent from school.  These absences result in lower grades, test scores and ultimately for students being less prepared for life after high school.  Please schedule all medical appointments for outside the school day (before/after school, days off and vacation periods) as much as possible.  Unless you are SERIOUSLY ill, be here!  School attendance matters for your future!!!!  If you have any questions about school absences, you may contact our attendance office staff or your student's counselor.
