Parent Volunteers:

Each room should limit the number of volunteers to a max of 3 so that physical distancing can be maintained (at least 3 feet from adults to students). Refrain from serving food, as usual. Volunteers must wear masks while in the school, but are not required to wear masks if they are outdoors. Please check in at the front office for your name tag.


Activities and games should take into account 3ft social distancing at all times. Students also must have their masks on at all times.

*Additional details will be coming soon!!


Your student can order a hot lunch or choose to take a bag with milk that also contains a fruit, vegetable, and grain. Click here for our district menu.

As a reminder, lunch is free this school year for all District 25 students.

Coats, Jackets, Hoodies...Oh My!!

With cooler weather upon us, please be sure that your child's outerwear is clearly marked with their name. Our Lost and Found is already filling up - please have your child check for missing items.

Let Us Inroduce You To: Kaori Horton, Our School Psychologist

We have a new School Psychologist here at Ivy Hill. Mrs. Kaori Horton joined our staff this year after spending last year at Olive Elementary. Mrs. Horton is not a clinical psychologist so she doesn't see students for therapy but she is part of our Special Education and Problem Solving teams and works to help students that may have challenges in our educational process. She helps our teachers come up with strategies that help students reach their greatest potential.

Mrs. Horton is a native of Japan and moved to the US for college in Indiana. She is very happy to have landed here at Ivy Hill and hopes to be a great support not only to our students but to our community as well.
