Dear Glenbard South Parent/Guardian,
Welcome Raiders to the 2021-2022 school year! Glenbard South is excited to be planning for an eight period, in-person schedule for the upcoming school year. Please pay close attention to the deadlines and important information in this packet. The South staff is working hard to help our students return to a more typical school schedule with needed support in this transition. Our first attendance day for students is August 11, 2021. Please take the time to read these materials.
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.

We are committed to the success of all of our students at Glenbard South.

We look forward to the upcoming year and are honored to be on this journey with all of you.
