  • Welcome

    Welcome

    We provide kindergarten to grade 6 Arabic Bilingual programming. Students receive instruction in both English and Arabic from Kindergarten to grade six.

    We believe that all students can experience success and are committed to unlocking each student’s potential. We believe in the uniqueness and worth of each individual, the ability of every child to learn and succeed, a collaborative approach to learning and the importance of the role of the school in our community.

    APPLYING FOR YELLOW BUS SERVICE

    Whether you’re a new rider or a returning rider, you need to apply for yellow bus service before June 1. Learn more about eligibility and APPLY. If you have questions or can’t apply online, please contact the school.

    ALTERNATIVE PROGRAM YELLOW BUS

    District alternative programs, such as Glengarry School’s Arabic Bilingual Program, are offered only in certain schools, so students may need to travel outside their local neighbourhood to attend schools offering these programs.

    Students who choose to attend an alternative program at a school outside of their neighbourhood are not eligible for yellow bus if the same program is offered at their neighbourhood school.

    Most of the alternative programs offered by Edmonton Public Schools have some yellow busing options available.

    ELIGIBILITY

    To be eligible for alternative program yellow bus service a student must:

    • attend the alternative program at the designated school
    • live outside of the walk boundary
    • live within the bus service area
    • be in K - Grade 6

    Yellow bus routes serving students in alternative programs are called modified-fixed routes. Students on modified-fixed bus routes walk a short distance (usually less than 400 metres) from home to a nearby ETS stop or intersection.

    RIDE TIMES

    The ride may be up to 90 minutes one-way, but most students are on the bus for less than 60 minutes.

    Specific guidelines for service provision can be found at http://transportation.epsb.net/

    DROP OFF and PICK UP

    I would like to take this opportunity to share some thoughts about the safety of students as they arrive at and depart from school. With the number of students at Glengarry who are both bused to school and dropped off by parents and the nature of the busy streets around our school the safety of our students requires constant attention. I respectfully ask that parents who are driving to school to drop off or pick up students follow the direction of staff on supervision and all posted signs for bus zones, speed limits and parking restrictions and that we collectively choose the safety of students over convenience. The City of Edmonton has implemented at 30 km/h speed limit along roads near schools with elementary students. We are happy to have this change and hope that this will help to ensure the safety of our students.  

    PARKING

    Parking at Glengarry School is limited.  Please follow all signs for parking restrictions.  A map of where to park while visiting the school can be found at http://glengarry.epsb.ca/contactus/parking.

Principal's Message

 

 

Welcome to Glengarry School

We are excited to move into the 2022/2023 school year. After two years of restrictions, we are now able to revive most of our pre-pandemic traditions and events. 

With the Arabic Bilingual program front at center at Glengarry, our students learn in an environment rich in language and culture. I am excited that we are going to be able to bring back assemblies, in-person special events and celebrations, and welcome parents and volunteers into our building again.

As we move into more normal pre-pandemic school operations, our focus at Glengarry is on Literacy (in Arabic and English), Numeracy, and Character Development. Our staff is committed to ensuring that students are supported and reach their full potential in their academic and social development.

We are fortunate to be participating in a pilot project on resilience that is connected to our Health curriculum and will better prepare our students to cope with challenging situations. We remain a UNESCO candidate school, where our children focus on learning to know, learning to do, learning to live, and learning to be. This UNESCO program is an integral part of teaching our students their role and responsibility in their community.

Families and the community are important partners to us, and I encourage families to reach out to us at any time.

Sincerely,

John Scammell

Principal - Glengarry School
