Preparing for Another Great Year
August 31, 2023
Entrance Conferences are next week, Tuesday Sept. 5, and Wednesday Sept. 6. If you haven't signed up for your child's conference yet, we want to help you get that scheduled ASAP. Please email fe@Isd77.org at your earliest convenience, and we will connect with you to get a conference scheduled.
What's This I Hear About a Referendum?
Early Release Days Continue This Year
What does this mean for families? On the dates listed below, ELEMENTARY students will be dismissed from school at 12:30 P.M. Buses will drop students off at their normal bus stop, approximately two hours earlier than a typical afternoon, and parents who pick their students up at school should make arrangements to do so right at 12:30. There will be no Excel or other after school programming, with the exception of ACES, on these dates. Students who are registered for the ACES after school program will be supervised by school staff from 12:30 - 2:30, and ACES staff will take over at that time. Families whose children don't attend ACES, but still require supervision from 12:30 - 2:30 will be able to sign up for "after-school care" on these dates, similar to how we managed late start childcare. More information on that process will be shared as the September Early Release Day approaches.

Student Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures
What's Different About Mornings?
Students who eat breakfast at school should line up at Door 1 as soon as they arrive. An adult will allow them into the building when it's time for breakfast to be served. (between 7:35-7:40)
Classroom teachers will share more details around our AM procedures when you meet with them at Entrance Conferences.
