Planning for Halloween

As you plan for Halloween, please keep the following pieces of information in mind:

  • There are no costumes at Winston Campus Junior High or at any of the junior high schools in School District 15. October 29th will be a normal day of school.
  • Trick-or-treat hours in Palatine and Arlington Heights are from 3 until 7 PM.
  • Students, please remember that you represent yourselves, your families, and our school while you are out trick-or-treating, and we expect that you will make positive choices that allow you to have fun and be safe but that also allow others who are out trick-or-treating to have a good time.

Curriculum - Community Digest

Starting this year and moving forward, all curriculum and program purchases will follow a new district Research, Design Implementation Model (RDIM). The RDIM is a cyclical review process that allows the district to research and pilot materials for district use on a regular basis. During an RDIM cycle pilot, volunteer teams of teachers, specialists and administrations review potential programs, participate in professional learning, implement assigned units and collaborate in discussion on what resources best serve our D15 students’ needs and align to our district’s instructional vision. Currently District 15 is engaging in 3 different pilot projects and we are implementing a new 6th grade math curriculum. The current three pilot projects are occurring in K-5 Math, 6-8 Science, and 7-8 English Language Arts. As we explore the differing features of programs and corresponding levels of student growth in learning, students in classes participating in pilots may have different materials, homework and grading practices during this time. For example, the number of graded assignments given may be different, and possibly less, as teachers are spending more time conferencing with students individually and in small groups to help guide students in their learning. Should you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s teacher.

Warriors Wear Masks

Per Governor Pritzker's Executive Order, all students, staff and visitors at any K-12 schools in the State of Illinois are required to wear masks.

Self-Certification

Parents and guardians, please make sure that you are screening your student(s) daily for COVID-like symptoms before sending them to school and asking the self-certification questions in the back of the lanyards. If your student or anyone in the household is experiencing any symptoms please keep them at home and have them get tested.

Chromebook Reminders

Students should be charging their Chromebooks nightly. We encourage familes to create a system that everynight at a certain hour, the student puts their Chromebook to charge as they pack their backpack for the following day.

Reporting an Absence

If your student will be absent for any reason, please give us a call on the attendance line.
