  • 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 BUSING FOR THE 2021-2022 YEAR

    Please fill out this 2021-2022 KG BUS APPLICATION if you child is in Kindergarten and requires busing.

    Please fill out this 2021-2022 Fixed Route Application if your child is in Grade 2-6 and requires busing.

    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

I am proud to be the new Principal at Glengarry School. I couldn’t be more excited to join this family. I look forward to meeting the Glengarry community over the coming months.

Normally, a new school year brings excitement and anticipation. It is possible that some of our families are experiencing different emotions heading into this school year. There may be some trepidation and uncertainty.

I want to assure our families that we are doing everything we can to ensure that the return to school is as safe for students and staff as possible. We have posted a detailed re-entry plan on our website, and I encourage you to take the time to read it all. The re-entry plan relies on a multifaceted approach that requires us all to work together. Our focus is on mitigating risk, family choice, and continuity of learning.

I encourage you to reach out to me via email or phone call. I look forward to serving the Glengarry community.

Sincerely,

John Scammell

 

 

أنا فخور بأن أكون المدير الجديد لمدرسة غلنغاري كما أنني متحمّس جدّا بالانضمام لهذه العائلة. 

عادة ما تبدأ السنة الدراسية بالحماس و التطلع لكن يمكن أن تشعر بعض العائلات بمشاعر مختلفة بالنسبة لهذه السنة الجديدة. و قد يشعر البعض بالخوف و الريبة.

أريد أن أطمئن عائلاتنا أننا نبذل ما في وسعنا لتكون العودة  إلى المدرسة آمنة قدر المستطاع للتلاميذ و الموظفين. لقد قمنا بنشر خطّة العودة المفصلة على موقعنا و أدعوكم للاطلاع عليها. تعتمد هذه الخطّة على أوجه متعددة تستوجب أن نعمل جميعا معا. سيكون تركيزنا على تقليل الخطر، اختيار العائلة و استمرارية العملية التعليمية.

أشجعكم على التواصل معي عبر البريد الإلكتروني أو الهاتف كما أتطلع لخدمة مجتمع غلنغاري.   

بكل إخلاص،

جون سكامل
