Dear Glenbard West Parent/ Guardian,
Glenbard West is excited to be planning for an eight period, in-person schedule for the upcoming school year. This registration packet contains important information that will help you organize and plan for the upcoming school year. I encourage you to pay close attention to deadlines for registration and back-to-school dates. The West administrative team is working hard on systems that will help all of our students integrate back to a typical school year with supports in place to assist in their success. As you may know, our first attendance day for students is August 11, 2021. Please take the time to read these materials and feel free to contact the school if you have any questions.
Online Registration & Payment – Online registration will be available July 1st through July 29th Please follow the system prompts to register your student and pay your fees online by July 29th to realize your prompt pay discount of $35 (Instructions enclosed). Registration and payment of fees are required prior to the first day of school.
New Students to Glenbard – Glenbard utilizes the iPad and digital curriculum/applications to deliver instruction to students. Before Glenbard can ship the iPad and instructions to new students, registration requirements must be completed and all medical and immunization records must be provided to the school nurse. We strongly encourage you to register as soon as possible so we can deliver the device and instructions on a timely basis. This will provide your student as much time as possible to become familiar with the device and digital curriculum, prior to the start of school.
Notification System – It is extremely important that you complete the Glenbard Notification Information – Automated section as part of the registration process to ensure that we have your current contact information. This will ensure you receive important notifications from the school and district office.
AP Exam Enrollment – If your student has enrolled in an AP course for the upcoming school year, we will also enroll them for the AP Exam. Glenbard will bill the AP exam fee on your student’s fee statement and will waive one AP exam fee per year, per student. The AP exam is $95 each; AP Seminar & AP Research exams are $143 each. More information regarding the AP courses and exams can be located on our school’s website.
Food Service – During the 2021-2022 school year, we will be operating our food service program under the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) as approved by the USDA. This means all students attending Glenbard schools will be eligible for free breakfast and lunch meals daily. Families will not need to complete an application for this program.
