Update from Nutrition Services

Due to supply chain issues, we are unable to serve peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at our schools. We hope to have them back in stock soon, but in the meantime, we will be serving Protein Power Packs so students will have a vegetarian option.

We know many families print off their menus for the month. Please note that if we have to change an offering due to the shortage, we will update menus online each Friday so families will know if there are any changes for the following week. Please check regularly if your child has a favorite that may be in short supply.

Student Attendance

As a friendly reminder, classes start promptly at 7:50 and that means all students should be in the building before 7:45 so that they can be on time and ready for 1st period. A student is considered tardy to school if they enter the building after 7:50.

Please check your child's absences and tardies in Infinite Campus. We are now at the end of our first full month of school. Absence and tardy letters will be sent home within the next few weeks. This is a routine procedure to remind families the importance of having your child at school every day possible.

If your child is going to be absent, please make sure to call the absence line. It is available 24 hours a day. 847-963-7401.

If you are experiencing difficulties with getting your child to school, the Winston Student Services Team is here to help you! As a student service team at Winston, our goal is to make each student feels welcomed and confident in their skills to succeed in junior high school.

SHIELD testing continues Monday

The implementation of SHIELD testing last week was smooth. We will continue to test students at Winston Campus on Mondays from 12:30 - 2:30. Please note there may be a delayed start for students who were opted in recently.

For tomorrow, students will be coming down based on their last names every 15 minutes to the stage area between the gymnasium and the cafeteria based on their last name. Once they are done testing they will return back to class. Please know that this system will be tweaked weekly to ensure we are doing it the best we can.

Last Names:

12:30 - 12:45 - A

12:45 - 1:00 - B & C

1:00 - 1:15 D - F

1:15 - 1:30 G - J

1:30 - 1:45 K - N

1:45 - 2:00 O - Q

2:00 - 2:20 R - Z

Thank you for your patience as we worked diligently to provide the best testing experience possible for your child(ren) and the school community. Please let us know if you have further questions. You can email the Nurse Coordinator at flork@ccsd5.net with SHIELD TESTING QUESTIONS in the subject.

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.


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.
