Week of May 23rd
Hello Husky Families-
It is hard to believe this is the last full week of school. Remember that our last day for all Kindergarten through 5th graders is on Thursday, June 2nd and is a full day of school. We look forward to celebrating all of our students at the awards ceremony and 5th grade farewell all taking place on May 31st. In order to make space for everyone, we are asking for only immediate family members to attend these events.
We are still missing MANY registrations for our returning students. We have already begun to make class lists for next year and want to count all of our students. If you need help completing registration, please contact the school office and Mrs. Boyajian and Ms. Rivera would be happy to give you an appointment to come in to finalize registration. We want all our Huskies to have a spot at Hiawatha in August. If your child will not be returning to District 100 next year, please inform the office staff at your child's school as soon as possible.
As the warmer weather is finally approaching we want to remind you about our playground. The playground is open for families to enjoy after school hours, however you need to remember that we do not offer supervision at the playground after 3:00. If your child is staying to play on their own, please remind them how to play respectfully at all times. We thank you for helping to keep our playground safe and clean.
We are extremely low on disposable masks, please send your child with a disposable mask or cloth mask from home, if they are still choosing to wear one. An extra one in their backpack is also helpful when a mask needs to be replaced. We appreciate your help with this.
Just a reminder as more students are becoming fully vaccinated to please turn in a copy of their vaccination card to Nurse Cindy. This will help us when we need to trace any close contacts to a positive case. As always Nurse Cindy is happy to answer any questions you may have about COVID-19 or vaccination availability.
Together we can work to keep our schools safe and healthy and we appreciate you helping us by following all guidance. Stay safe and healthy Huskies!

News from Nurse Cindy
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
Coughing (new, constant)
Muscle aches or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Severe abdominal pain
Difficulty breathing or faster than normal breathing
If your child shows any signs of COVID, please keep home and consult with your Doctor or school nurse about testing. Continue to keep your child home until instructed by your doctor/medical professional that it is safe to return to school. All elevated temperatures must 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.
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.
District 100 is proud to announce our partnership with PAPER, a tutoring program available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for all 3rd through 8th grade students. PAPER is a chat-based, on-line tutoring program that provides opportunities for students to receive feedback and support in multiple languages from highly-trained tutors in a variety of content areas. Beginning today, all students in grades 3-8 will have access to PAPER on their iPads and throughout the week, teachers will introduce students to the program and teach them how to access a live tutor. The attachments below provide some information for families about PAPER and you can also visit our website for additional information on the program.
District 100’s partnership with PAPER provides a valuable tool to support continuous learning and growth, and we encourage our 3rd through 8th grade students and families to take advantage of all the program has to offer.
Be Safe! Be Responsible! Be Inspired!
D100 has implemented in-school and at-home Internet content filtering on all D100-issued student devices. Securly, the new content filter, can scan/block/log Internet activity such as:
· Website Access
· Google Drive content
· Keyword/searches potentially related to self-harm
When any of the above activities are flagged by Securly, a notification is sent to the appropriate D100 administrator for follow-up. Some notifications, such as self-harm, will result in follow-up with the student’s parent or guardian.
Parents/guardians can view their children’s internet activity through the Securly Home app (available for iPhone/Android/Web)
How does the Securly Home app work?
- First, be sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org in your email application so Securly’s emails don’t accidentally go to your spam folder. Note the spelling of Securly.
- Beginning tomorrow, Friday, December 3, parents/guardians will automatically receive a welcome email to the account we have on file with simple setup instructions that include:
- Login setup
- Downloading the Securly Home app for your device
- Once the app is installed, you may refer to the attached tutorials on how to use the app as well as the following links:
- Securly Home setup is required in order to receive notifications about your child’s internet activity.
What if I need help?
- An email help request to Securly can be made directly within the app under Help>Support.
D100 is committed to providing its students a safe digital learning environment, on and off campus. While no content filter can block 100% of inappropriate content, good user judgment can help fill the gap.
