Week of November 19th
Hello Husky Families-
Thank you to everyone who came to our Turkey Trot and made a food donation. The Huskies had so much fun creating shirts and walking with friends. We also appreciate your support in donating to needy families in our community.
Thanksgiving is always a time to reflect with family and friends on everything we have to be grateful for. I am beyond grateful to serve as the Hiawatha principal. The staff, families and students always put a smile on my face and make the tough days worth it all. I hope you have time to reflect this week and enjoy all you have to be thankful for.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! We will see everyone back after break on Monday, November 27th.

Please remember if you need to enter the building, you need to enter through door 1W on East Ave to gain a visitors pass.
Entry into our schools during school hours is restricted using access control and security vestibules, and security cameras are utilized to monitor building security throughout the district. Parents and other visitors coming into schools must check in at the main office. Visitors will be asked to identify themselves and the reason for their visit before gaining access to our buildings. Only one person will be allowed entry into the building at a time. Please do not hold the door open for other visitors behind you or allow others through the door when leaving. We ask for your support and cooperation in communicating with our front office staff and complying with all visitor security protocols.
Apple Success Story
We are beyond honored to share that Berwyn South and Hiawatha School were featured as a K-12 Apple Education Success Story. Last spring we had the honor of opening our school to representatives from Apple to show them what learning looks like at Hiawatha School. Watching this success story video gives us an immense sense of pride to see many of our teachers and students shine in this video for the world to see. I couldn’t be more proud to be the principal of this amazing school in Berwyn South. Our students are inspiring others each and every day and showing others what is possible. You can access the videos and story on the Apple Education Website.
A note from Nurse Cindy
Dear Parents / Guardian:
Children who come to school with symptoms of illness are not in the best frame of mind for learning. Please do not send your child to school if any of the following symptoms are present:
- “Runny” nose, especially with green mucous
- Rashes or any scratching for unknown reasons, with or without fever
- Red, watery, itchy eyes that were crusted shut upon awakening
- Chills or fever of 100.4 or higher
- Diarrhea or vomiting
- Constant coughing
Continue to keep your child home until all elevated temperatures have return to a normal temperature for 24 hours without the use of anti-fever medicine (i.e. Tylenol, Motrin, Advil). Please call the school each day your child is sick to report their absence. Upon returning to school, a physician’s note is required in order to be excused from P.E./gym or recess.
Every time your child misses school to see a doctor, have the doctor write a note. Bring the note to school when the child returns.
Thank you for your cooperation in this important matter. Together we can keep all of the staff and students healthy and ready to participate in school feeling their very best! If you have any questions please call me at any time.
