District COVID-19 Dashboard

The district communicated this week regarding a District COVID-19 Dashboard that will be available for all families to access on the sd44.org webpage. The information included in that dashboard will give families the data as it relates to daily, weekly and total COVID-19 positive cases and close contacts for in-person students and staff. It reflects the day in which the case or close contact was reported. You play an important role in helping our schools stay healthy so we can continue our hybrid leaning. Remember that Healthy=Hybrid / Hibrido=Saludable and following the COVID Self-Certification Verification (Spanish Version) procedures for your child(ren) will keep our school environment healthy and open. Keep your child home if they exhibit any of the following symptoms:
  • Temperature over 100.4
  • Uncontrolled cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chills
  • Fatigue
  • Body aches
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste/smell
  • Congestion/runny nose
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Diarrhea

**Please do not send your child(ren) to school if they are exhibiting those symptoms outlined in the verification form (and above) as this can negatively impact our ability to keep the classroom open.

**Please do not send siblings to school if a person in the family is being quarantined.

**If you travel to another state on the Illinois quarantine list, Illinois recommends that you quarantine. We hope that you would follow that recommendation to keep our school environment safe for the other students, families and staff members. Call the attendance line if you are quarantining after travel.

The goal is for our students and families to experience hybrid and remote learning; whichever your family chose to participate in. We know all families are faced with different situations and you are making the best decision for your family; so whether hybrid or remote only, please know we want all our students participating and learning each day. This can only happen if staff and students stay healthy.

Helping PV Families During the Holidays

Each year, we like to help our families around the holiday and this year is no exception. We know the pandemic has affected our families in different ways so we would like to offer some resources and to come together as a community to help one another. Over the Thanksgiving Holiday St. Andrew's Church is offering Thanksgiving dinners to help all of us celebrate with plenty of fixings. Click here for a flyer from St. Andrew's Church in Downers Grove.

We are also beginning our "Snowflakes of Sharing" event at Park View. Families can donate Kohl's gift cards or cash and we will make sure all of our Park View students can open a gift during the holiday. Please click on this Snowflakes of Sharing flyer for details. Thank you for all you do to help our community.

Don't Miss Reflections

Everyone -

Please don't forget to participate in the National PTA Reflections Program. The theme this year, " I Matter Because . . . . . " This is a perfect way for your child(ren) to express why they matter using their own creativity (dance, film, literature, music, photography, visual arts). Everything you need to know about how to enter is right here in this flyer. I hope to see lots of Panthers submit reflection projects and represent Park View School. The deadline is November 10th.

Honoring Our Veteran's

"Rep. Terra Costa Howard (IL-District 48) is interested in honoring our local veterans by proudly representing the artwork of your children. If your child has a piece of artwork dedicated to honoring our veterans, we ask that you kindly submit it using this Google Form. All submissions will be shared with Rep. Howard and put proudly on display in her Lombard office."
