We know how intimidating high school can be for Freshmen and new students in a normal year, and we know that might be even more amplified this year because students have not had the chance to walk the building and get used to things. We would like to try and ease that stress and anxiety as much as possible before the first day of in-person learning. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that we will be holding a Freshman and new student Open House on Thursday, October 15th from 3 pm to 6 pm. This will be an opportunity for students new to John Glenn to walk the building and learn where their classes are and familiarize themselves with the building before the first day of school. Here are a couple of important reminders for the Open House: 1. Anyone entering into John Glenn High School must wear a mask, no exceptions. 2. Students will only be allowed to be accompanied by one guest. 3. Schedules will not be handed out, students must print them ahead of time or have them accessible on their phone. 4. All students and guests must enter in the back of the building at the athletic entrance or through the commons' doors in the Courtyard. No other entrances will be open at this time. We cannot wait to welcome you back into the building and we look forward to seeing all of you on the the 15th!
Dear John Glenn Students and Families, Thank you for another great week of remote learning. We are so proud of how hard all of our students and families are working to make this time successful. This week has brought news of us returning to in person learning on October 19th. As the Principal of the high school, I wanted to reach out to you and let you know that we have been working extremely hard over the past few months in preparation for this decision. Our team at John Glenn has been working hard to make sure that we have been ready to welcome back students at a moment's notice. When students come back to the building they will notice hand sanitizer stations all around the building, desk dividers in every classroom, hallway markings to help with traffic flow, and they will even be provided a John Glenn mask during the first week! There are many more details and procedures that we have laid out in our Return to Learning Plans and Procedures Document. Please read it over and let us know what questions you may have. We will have more details and announcements in the weeks to come. Please know that we may add and adjust this plan as needed. My main reason for sending this out is to let you know that we are ready to provide a safe and top-notch educational experience no matter what is thrown our way. We want you to rest assured that your student will be returning to a safe environment. We hope that you have a wonderful weekend and as always please feel free to reach out if you have any questions. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1wgtRR5SSEu1JIGhew_wpQ7cA-f--EjjHQZGSBZdqMio/edit?usp=sharing
This Friday, October 2nd is scheduled as a half-day for students and it will be an independent workday with no live lessons. Teachers may be providing independent work for students to complete on Friday and will be available to answer questions and provide academic support. Teachers will be available from 7:30 to 9:00 am in their Google Meet for their Flex class. If a student needs support from a teacher they will need to make sure they access the Flex class in Google Meet for that particular teacher as we will not be following an hourly schedule on Friday. If you have any questions about this format for Friday, please call the main office at 989-684-7510
To JGHS Families and Students, We wanted to inform you of the testing make up days that will take place at John Glenn High School in October. These are the tests from the Spring that were missed due to us being home during remote learning. For all of the make-up tests, we will have more details on how it will work, room assignments, and details the closer we get. We simply want to give you the testing days so you can make plans accordingly. We will be taking the tests in person even if we are still remote at the time of testing. Social distancing and small numbers of students per room will be possible because we will not have all of the students in the building at once. Here are the testing dates: Wednesday, October 14th- SAT (12th grade) AND PSAT (10th grade) Thursday, October 29th- PSAT/NMSQT (11th Grade) Friday, October 30th- PSAT (9th Grade) Any grade not listed on a particular testing day will not need to report to school whether we are in person or remote and will have the day off. Please contact us at the office if you have any questions.
Good Evening Everyone! Welcome back to a school year unlike any other. Even though we may not be starting out in person, we are so excited to welcome everyone back to school and get started with learning! Please take the time this weekend to watch my welcome back video. I have included the link in this message. There is some important information I conveyed in there: https://youtu.be/7z20XdQ2KBk (Welcome Back Video) One of the most important things, and a question we are getting most often is about the first day of school. The first say of school is Tuesday, September 1st. You will be going to your first hour class virtually. I have included the schedule with this email. I explain it in the video, but you will want to go to your 1st hour teacher’s Google Classroom and they will give you further instruction. I also wanted to included some tips and tricks for all of you with questions that may have come up. Here is a video from our own Ms. Klida on how to join a Google Classroom: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zEOMNwyfVDzlGyWI4aZERhlDefYfrl3h/view I have also included a lot of nice tutorial videos on all things Google.
