About Glenmont Elementary

Welcome to Glenmont School!

Glenmont School is the proud recipient of the 2019 National Blue Ribbon School Award, as well as being named a Recognition School for high academic achievement in both 2019 and 2020 by the NYS Department of Education.

Glenmont Elementary School, located in a suburb just outside of Albany, NY, is one of five Bethlehem Central elementary schools. Thanks to the dedicated and professional faculty and staff, our 360 students in grades K-5 learn and grow in a challenging yet supportive environment. Our families are an integral part of our learning community, providing support through our active PTA.

Glenmont School has always been a place where kindness has been cultivated and treasured.  This year we will continue this tradition as we implement a Response to Intervention Behavior Program which will focus on kindness as one of our core values.  All of our students will receive instruction and support in how to Be Kind, Be Respectful, & Be Responsible throughout all areas of the school in their interactions with children and adults alike.  We’ll also continue to provide positive reinforcement through our Glenmont Gold slips which staff give to children they catch being kind. You’ll see these values promoted in school-wide displays and programs including service projects.  Our goal is to create a safe and nurturing environment that challenges our students to make a positive difference in the world both now and as they grow.

Ever since the doors of our school first opened on April 29, 1957, Glenmont School has served as a high achieving, positive learning community for our students, staff, and families. We are very proud of our school and hope you will stop by to see what makes our school such a special place.

Attendance and Reporting Absences

Regular school attendance is essential to a student’s educational development and social-emotional well-being. With some exceptions, every child enrolled in school is expected to be present each day school is in session.

All absences, tardiness, and early departures (ATED) must be accounted for. It is the parent’s responsibility to notify the school office on the day of the ATED and to provide a written excuse upon the student’s return to school.

Visiting our School

Our visitor policies are designed to ensure the safety of all students and staff and minimize disruption to the instructional program. The doors to all elementary schools are locked during the school day. Visitors will push a call button at the main entrance to alert the office to their presence at the door.

Main office staff will ask visitors to identify themselves, and then will “buzz” them into the building. Once inside, visitors will report to the main office, sign in, and take a visitor’s badge. Upon leaving the building, please return to the office to sign out and return the badge.
