Dear Families,

We are excited to start the 2021-2022 school year. The start of each year is full of new opportunities and adventures. As we return to full onsite learning, we know we are better together!


Our first day of school will be Wednesday, August 25, and we look forward to welcoming all students back. For our first day, students will report at 8:50 and will be dismissed at 1:50. Regular school hours are 7:50-2:50. Every Wednesday, we will have a late start, and students will arrive at 8:50. Students will be expected to follow the SD 104 uniform policy and wear a mask daily.


Please know we are here to help you, so feel free to contact us at any time. The main phone line for the office is (708) 458-7150.


All the best,


Ms. Amanda Venegonia, Principal (avenegonia@sd104.us)

Mrs. Sara Leone, Associate Principal (sleone@sd104.us)

Student Uniforms

The Board of Education has adopted a mandatory school uniform policy for all students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. Please note that any article of clothing or accessory considered to be disruptive to the educational environment or that poses a danger to any student may be disallowed at the discretion of the building principal. Logos of any kind not affiliated with the school or district are not permitted on any article of clothing or accessory. Students may wear any approved spirit wear attire or school athletic uniforms on days of athletic games.


SHIRTS/TOPS: Plain maroon collared polo or dress shirt with long or short sleeves is required. Plain black or white undershirts may be worn under the maroon collared shirt. Shirts must extend to waistline. Plain black or maroon sweaters or sweatshirts may be worn over the collared maroon polo or dress shirt or over a plain white or black undershirt.


Uniform shirts can be purchased from the main office. Old Navy also carries maroon polo shirts.


PANTS: Pants must be black or khaki and worn at the waist. Leggings may be worn, but only when a shirt extending to mid-thigh is worn as well.
