Waterbury Roar

Volume 1, Issue 32, April 30th, 2021

A Roar from our Principal, Dr. Jon Pokora

Waterbury Community,

I hope everyone enjoys the warm weather this weekend!

This week we wrapped up the IAR and ISA assessments!

As we enter the final month of the school year, please help us finish strong by following the health and safety guidelines.

At dismissal we are having some traffic jams. Please use the indented drive or the island to pick up your child. This way we can keep the flow of traffic moving. If you park, please wait until the traffic is clear and do not reverse out stopping traffic. Thank you for helping support a safe dismissal.

Thanks and have a great day,

Dr. Jon Pokora

Lunch Program Info and Flyers

D20 will continue to offer FREE breakfast & lunch daily to ALL children 18 and under who live within the district, through the end of the 2020-21 school year (6/30/2021). Children do not have to be enrolled in D20 schools. No paperwork is required to pick up the meals. The children to not need to be present, and the meals can be picked up by a parent, friend, relative or neighbor.


All In-Person Students: will be provided with free meals when being dismissed from class each day. Please be sure to check your child's backpack as there may be food & drink that need to be refrigerated. We will no longer hand-out multi-day meal packs for weekends and holidays to in-person students, as it was too cumbersome for our students. Families who may want meals for multiple days should pick-up at Greenbrook (see times below).

All Remote Students: can pick-up meals from any of the D20 schools, during the assigned times below. This includes all students who are learning remotely during an adaptive pause. We will no longer have bus delivery of meals when hybrid/in-person is in session. Meals for multiple days will be given on each pick-up day, including to cover Saturday and Sunday (i.e., Monday pick-up for Monday + Tuesday, Wednesday pick-up for Wednesday + Thursday).


GREENBROOK 7AM - 10:45AM & 11:30AM - 1PM



If you are picking-up meals for more than 5 children at one time, we ask that you please complete the Bulk Meal Pick-Up Form before 2pm on the day before you will be picking up the meals, so that we can have your food ready for you on the date(s) and location you request.

Openings Available in the Childcare Program through the Roselle Park District

Students from any D20 school can attend before and/or after school childcare at Waterbury thru Roselle Park District. Please see the attached flyers, or for more information please contact Roselle Park District (630) 894-4200 or register online https://bit.ly/D20ChildcareRegistration

Shut Down your Chromebooks Properly Each Night

Please have your student follow the directions on how to properly shut down their Chromebooks each night. A lot of the technology issues we have been experiencing lately are just a matter of having the Chromebooks shut down properly so that updates can occur. See the pics and pdf below on how to do this in the proper manner. Thank you so much for your help and cooperation.

Missing anything? Please contact Mrs. Carone or Mrs. Cronin if you believe your student has misplaced an item.
