Glencoe Water Notice

Dear Glencoe Community,

As you may have heard, the district has turned off all water fountains across the district pending testing for lead in our water supply.  Since the district is supplying schools with bottled water from Costco NO child will go without water at school. 

We’d appreciate your support in sending your child with a reusable bottle already filled with water from home.   With this kind of warm weather, we know kids will be wanting to drink more water.  As a Premiere Green School, we’d like to encourage all of our families to send students to school with a FULL REUSABLE water bottle  from home (labeled with their name)  to cut down on the excess water bottles that need to get recycled coming from Glencoe.   Continued use of REUSABLE water bottles filled nightly at home will help us save money and decrease the use of our recycling resources .

If your child drinks all the water in the bottle from home and needs more we will of course, give them water from the district’s delivery.

What a great learning experience this is for all students. We have the opportunity to save money and on our recycling resources. As  an inclusive community that cares, collaborates and perseveres, this is an opportunity to show our ability to work together and care for our community, district and world!

Lori Clark
