General Information


Lunch can be ordered through the PTO  

Glenwood does not have a cafeteria; each day, parents must provide lunch for their children. To assist parents in this daily routine, the PTO offers a lunch program as a fundraiser for our school. Lunch can be purchased each day of the week.  The program is organized and staffed by parent volunteers. Registration for Tuesday and Thursday lunch takes place in September and January through the Glenwood PTO website, and orders are set for the next five months. Registration for lunch service on Monday, Wednesday and Friday is through our lunch partner No Fuss Lunch and runs throughout the year.

 Any questions should be sent to this Email.
