A reminder to parents of fully remote students that if you would like your child(ren) to transition back to in-person learning (Group A or Group B) please notify Mr. Dwyer via email at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 26th. Fully remote students will transition back to in-person learning the week of March 8th.
Once Group A and Group B attendance numbers are updated the staff will look at adding more students to five days a week. With capacity capped at 10 students per classroom we are looking to maximize the number of students returning to five days a week in-person learning.
Call or email Mr. Dwyer with questions regarding in-person attendance, email@example.com, 630-894-9200.

Mrs. Treanor's Corner
Child abuse curriculum lessons, otherwise known as the state mandated Erin’s Law, will once again be conducted in all K-5 classrooms to educate students on safe and unsafe touches, safe and unsafe secrets, and how to get away and tell a trusted adult. Lessons will teach children how to recognize child abuse, equip them with skills to reduce their vulnerability, and encourage them to report abuse. District 13 uses a curriculum entitled Kids In The Know that focuses on teaching the above mentioned skills. Kindergarten and 1st graders will be receiving this instruction this month and then 2nd-5th graders will be receiving this instruction sometime between March, April, and May. Lessons will be conducted through classroom Google Meets so that students in person and students who are remote at home will have access to the lessons. Please remember that we want to respect all students' privacy during Google Meets and conversations are to be kept confidential.
As a parent, I would encourage you to discuss these subjects with your child. You may preview the Kids In The Know curriculum, by age level, by going to Kids In The Know . If you would rather not have your child participate in this instruction, please put your request in writing and send it to the school office attention Mrs. Treanor. If you have any questions about this or any other related topic, please do not hesitate to call me at 630-894-9200.
