Welcome to Glen Allan School
My Name is Mr. Arbuthnott and welcome to the Glen Allan Elementary School. At Glen Allan School we believe that each child is unique, that all children can learn and that all children can succeed. We nurture excellence in academics, athletics and the arts. Our safe and caring learning environment promotes student growth in citizenship and character education. Glen Allan is known as the school that challenges and cherishes every child.
While our students are our pride and joy, we also take great delight in the close bonds and mutually supportive relationship that our highly professional staff has established with our parent community. Our school council actively promotes excellence in learning and helps to enrich the school experiences of students through a number of school programs.
Again, welcome to our school. Enjoy your visit.

If you haven’t received a letter from Student Transportation yet, and would like to inquire about busing for your child, contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151.
Look for bus passes and any updated route information in your mail in August.
