A five-year-old girl has died suddenly in the Knightswood area of the city.
The child fell ill on Saturday with her cause of death currently unknown, but officers say it is not being treated as suspicious.
The young girl had recently joined St Ninian's Primary with the school's headteacher informing parents of the sad news earlier this week.
A letter confirming that fellow pupils had not been told the tragic news of the primary one's death but that it would be announced at prayer time the following morning was sent out to parents on Wednesday. All pupils will be offered educational psychology support, if they need it, reports the Daily Record.

The child's cause of death is not yet known, though it did not occur on school grounds.
The headteacher, Madeline McGeachie, said the youngster's family, who are new to the school community, would be given as much support as possible.
Ms McGeachie's letter read: "It is with great sadness that I write to inform you that one of our P1 pupils has sadly died. The death was unexpected and our thoughts are very much with the family who only joined us within the past few weeks.
"I am sending this letter home to make you, as parents and carers, aware of this sad loss but to also inform that we have not spoken with the children yet. We plan to let them know as we start the day tomorrow at prayer time but recognise that many of them will not know the child as she was with us so briefly.
"I wanted to let you know in advance of telling the children, so that you have the opportunity to talk about this sad event in your own way with your child, if you choose to. Educational psychology are supporting the school through this sad time and will be available if required to support children.
"As a school community we will do whatever we can to support the family. I ask that you keep this family in your thoughts and prayers."
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Police were made aware of a five-year-old girl having died in hospital in the early hours of Saturday, 17 December after having taken unwell at her home in Glasgow.
"Enquiries remain ongoing into the cause of death, however it is not being treated as suspicious.”
