Dear Parents,

As part of our Glenville School relocation plan, your second and/or third grade child will be attending Cos Cob
School effective Wednesday, August, 27, 2008.

The contents of this packet include:
• School Contact Information (yellow)
• Pick-Up Information Form (blue): Please complete and return to your child’s classroom teacher on August 27th
• Bus Route (green)
• Directions to Relocation Sites (pink)

Administration:
In order to most efficiently meet the needs of the staff and families of Glenville School, we have created two
“administrative hubs” at our more densely populated locations. In addition, it is our goal to be visible and accessible at
each of the four sites on a continual basis. For the duration of the relocation, Mr. Marc J. D’Amico, Principal, and
Naomi Dylwesky, Administrative Assistant will be situated at the Western Middle School. The direct line is 203-413-
8437. Ms. Marianne McCullough, Assistant Principal, and Michele Warzoha, Administrative Assistant will be situated
at Cos Cob School. The direct line is 203-413-8468

Specials and Services:
Please know that your child will receive all of his/her specials at the relocation school site. Although your child’s
teacher assignment and class roster are not included in this packet, you will receive it by mail next week. In addition, if
your child receives services such as special education, ESL and/or ALP, he/she will continue to receive these services at
his/her relocation school. We have made every effort to keep Glenville School’s students with their specials and support
service staff.

Transportation:
Transportation routes are attached. Each bus will have a clear sign indicating the relocation school site and designated
grade level. There are 4 specific “hub” stops for Glenville families. Please reference the attached bus schedule to
determine which “hub” stop is most convenient for you and your family. Also, it is important to note that EACH grade
level will have its own bus. For example, even though second and third graders are both attending Cos Cob School,
each grade will have a bus designated for its particular level. Please be mindful of the signage in the bus windows!

Glenville Child Care Program:
We are working diligently to explore site opportunities and are very hopeful that we will be able to provide childcare for
Glenville families. At this point, we do not have a definitive answer. Nevertheless, we will continue to update you as
information is gathered and we move forward in the quest to secure this essential service for families.

Glenville School “Meet & Greet”:
We want you and your child to feel welcome at their “host” school locations. On August 26th, 2008, you are invited at
the following times to visit the school, your child’s teacher and new classroom. I look forward to seeing you there!
Parkway School – Kindergarten: 8:30am – 9:30am
Julian Curtiss – Grade 1: 9:45am - 10:45am
Cos Cob School – Grade 2 & Grade 3 11:00Am – 12:00pm
Western Middle School – Grade 4 & Grade 5: 1:00pm -2:00pm

We continue to be impressed with the staff, students and parents of Glenville School! We will continue to provide
updates on our website as new information becomes available (www.greenwichschools.org). If you have questions,
please call me at 203-413-8437

Sincerely,


Mr. Marc D’Amico                                       Dr. Betty J. Sternberg

Dear Parents and Children,

Student safety is of the utmost importance to us! I am requesting that each parent fill-out
and return this form to your child’s teacher on the first day of school, Wednesday,
August 27, 2008. The information you provide will assist our teachers and host schools
in safely transporting your child safely at the conclusion of each school day. Thank you
for your anticipated cooperation in this matter!


___ My child will ride his/her regular bus home. His/her “hub-stop” is:
    (Please circle one):

   a)   Pemberwick Road and Moshier St.
   b)   Pemberwick Road and Western Greenwich Civic Center
   c)   Glenville Shopping Center
   d)   Valley Drive and Edgewood Place

___My child will be “parent pick-up” at the relocation school (see dismissal times)


___My child will go to the Boy’s and Girl’s Club by way of transportation provided at
the relocation schools.




*Please send in a written note to your child’s teacher if there is a change to this
routine on any given day.

                                                             Yours for better education,
