Kent schools are closed, but we’re right here!

The Glenridge Elementary PTO is committed to supporting our school community during the COVID-19 outbreak.  Please see the information below for ways to lend a hand or receive support.

Can you help out?

Our support of the Glenridge community is as strong as we are!  Can you help manage PTO volunteers or do you have an idea for a great project to support our community?  Email to join the incredible group of PTO volunteers stepping up to get us get organized!

Glenridge community video call

Join the Glenridge PTO for a weekly community video call for families connected to Glenridge Elementary School.  Check in with your neighbors, share resources, and stay connected as we practice safe social distancing!

This will be our first time with this kind of call, so please be patient as we figure out how to use the technology. Depending on the number of people who join, we may break into smaller groups within the call.
