The Elwood School community is saddened to report that Rosa Glass, a beloved member of its teaching staff, passed away yesterday. Mrs. Glass was a well-respected Family and Consumer Science teacher in the middle school and high school who began teaching in Elwood ten years ago.

Today, all members of the district’s mental health and guidance team are on-site at both secondary schools to support students and staff.

The district extends its deepest sympathies to the family, friends and students of Mrs. Glass. She was a warm, caring and dedicated member of our Elwood family, and she will be deeply missed.
