December Update

The holiday season is upon and us and final exams are just around the corner! Students are able to leave early during finals week (December 17-19) with parent permission. Students will receive permission slips next Monday, December 10th. All students are required to take finals and be present at school. Buses will run at usual times, so students will need to find alternative transportation if leaving early. The final exam schedule can be seen below. Please call the high school office at 815-947-3323 with any questions.


We hope all our families enjoy the holidays and take time to relax and renew!
