New Assistant Principal Announced

Dear Glencoe Families,

As you may know, assistant principal Mary Peterson is retiring at the end of this school year.  Mrs. Peterson has been a member of our community for 9 years and has been in the HSD for 19 years.  She has been an elementary principal and an assistant principal in three of our high schools.  She will be greatly missed.  Taking her place will be Dave Vickery, current assistant principal at Hilhi.  

Mr. Vickery is a U.S. Navy veteran who began his career in education in 2008 as a special education teacher and assistive technology coordinator at Cascade Junior High in Turner, Oregon.  In 2010, he became a special education teacher and PBIS coordinator at South Meadows Middle School.  He began serving as a substitute administrator in 2011, and in 2013 was selected as Hilhi’s dean of students.  After just one year in that role, he became an assistant principal at Hilhi.  Mr. Vickery was an instrumental member of the District’s Technology Study Team in 2012, and served as a summer school teacher in 2013 and 2014.  He values equity and integrity, and works to engage families as partners in the education process. 

Please join me in wishing Mrs. Peterson well in her retirement and welcoming Mr. Vickery to our team. 

Roll Tide! 

Claudia Ruf - Principal 

Estimadas familias de Glencoe:

Como ustedes saben, la subdirectora Mary Peterson se jubilará a finales de este año escolar.  La Sra. Peterson ha sido un miembro de nuestra comunidad por 9 años y ha estado en el HSD durante 19 años.  Ella ha sido directora de primaria y subdirectora en tres de nuestras escuelas preparatorias.  La extrañaremos inmensamente. Para tomar su lugar tendremos a Dave Vickery, actual subdirector de Hilhi.

El Sr. Vickery es un veterano de la Armada de los EE. UU. que comenzó su carrera en la educación en el 2008 como maestro de educación especial y coordinador de asistencia tecnológica en Cascade Junior High en Turner, Oregon.  En el 2010, pasó a ser maestro de educación especial y coordinador de PBIS en la Escuela Secundaria South Meadows.  Él comenzó a servir como un administrador sustituto en el 2011, y en el 2013 fue elegido como decano de estudiantes en Hilhi.  Después de un año en ese puesto, llegó a ser el subdirector en Hilhi.  El Sr. Vickery fue un miembro fundamental del Equipo Asesor de Tecnología del Distrito en el 2012, y fue maestro de la escuela de verano en el 2013 y 2014.  Él valora la equidad e integridad, y trabaja para involucrar a las familias como socios en el proceso educativo.

Por favor, únase a mí en desearle lo mejor a la Sra. Peterson en su jubilación y en darle la bienvenida al Sr. Vickery a nuestro equipo.

¡Adelante Tide!

IMPORTANT! New Pick-up/Drop-off Location Starting March 28

Please read letter from Principal Claudia Ruf to the Glencoe community:

Dear GHS,
I am sure you are well aware of the challenges in our front parking lot during both morning and afternoon drop-off and pick-up. 

Starting Monday, March 28, 2016 the drop off and pick up location will be changed to the "student" parking lot area (please see the map provided).  We ask that you follow this new process.   

The only way we can clear up the front and make the drop off and pick up safer and more efficient is to move "parent" drop off and pick up to the back lot.  The buses are not able to get through the front entrance safely and often the traffic backs up on NW Glencoe Road.   

As we work to ensure our campus is safe for all our community I also ask that you respect the fire zones signs on our campus.  The south side "utility road" and fire zone and the front of the building are also areas that should not be used for parking.  Many times during the week we finds cars parked right in front of our front doors or in fire zone areas.    

Thank you for helping us make our campus safe. 

Roll Tide! 

Claudia Ruf - Principal

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.

District High School Attendance Competition

Glencoe, are you ready for a competition with the other district high schools? Superintendent Scott will award the high school, with the best student attendance, a check for $1000 at the end of the first nine weeks. All you have to do is show up every day. Support and encourage each other, schedule appointments outside of the school day and other than true emergencies, be here! Couldn't be any simpler than that. Let's show the other high schools who is top notch when it comes to regular school attendance. Submit your ideas/suggestions for ways to spend the $1000 (when we win) to our new principal, Claudia Ruf. 

Parents, please help Glencoe students win the competition by making sure your students attend school (all day) every day. Do not pull them out of school for routine medical appointments that could be scheduled after school or on non-school days. Students should prearrange absences for reasons other than serious illness or emergency. Those forms are available in the attendance office. Students who miss two days within a month of school are considered chronically absent and are more likely to struggle academically. If you have questions about excused/unexcused absences, consult the Parent/Student Handbook online or call the Attendance staff at 503-844-1906.
