School HoursOffice Hours
The Glenridge School office is open from 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
begins at 8:40 a.m. and is dismissed at 3:30 p.m. The first bell rings
at 8:30 a.m. and the second bell at 8:40 a.m. Children should arrive at
school as close to 8:30 a.m. as possible. Students are considered tardy
if they arrive after 8:40 a.m.
It is important for students to arrive
in the classroom before the second bell at 8:40 a.m. Aside from
recording the attendance and taking the lunch count at that time,
classroom teachers explain the daily plans, special
instructions/information are given, notices from the office are
announced throughout the building, etc. Understandably, if a student is
not present to receive this daily information his/her school day will
begin with added confusion.
In case of inclement weather, a green
flag hangs on each entry door. If the green flag is up when children
arrive at school, they may wait in the Oxford foyer until 8:30 a.m. (If
it is raining and the green flag is not up, children may come in to the
