Noteworthy: Let's All Stay Safe Together

Hello Sherwood Community,

We would like to take a moment to recognize that we have just successfully completed our sixth week of in-person hybrid learning and virtual learning in North Shore School District 112! This is by no accident. In fact, this is the result of students, staff, parents and community members adhering to the public health and safety guidelines put forth by local, state, and federal agencies. We encourage all stakeholders to continue to practice social distancing, wash hands often, and wear a mask.

As a friendly reminder, if you have a child experiencing Covid-19 symptoms your child will need to stay home from school. Additionally, any siblings will also need to stay home from school. In order to return to school your symptomatic child will need a note from a physician. This note needs to include an alternate diagnosis or a negative Covid-19 test result. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our nurse Mrs. Beth Greenberger with any specific questions.

Thank you for your continued support!

Panda Pride,

Rachel & Kevin

FUNd Run 2020 - October 3 to October 12- Ten Days. One Goal.

The health and safety of the D112 students, faculty and community members are our top concern. To this end, the 2020 FUNd Run is a VIRTUAL event.

This year FUNd Run participants may not be running (and walking) on the beautiful course through the Ravinia Festival neighborhood, but participants will still feel part of the D112 community. And even better, participants will help raise much needed funds to support students in our community as part of a need-based scholarship fund providing critical support for items such as school supplies, books and musical instrument rentals.

Participants will complete a 5K or 1-mile Family Walk between October 3 to October 12th on whatever course they choose. Be sure to post pictures of your family and tag us on social media or email pictures to us. “I ran FUNd Run 2020” signs are posted at all D112 schools for the perfect post-race photo op!

All participants will be entered into a raffle for the opportunity to win prizes from local businesses. Check our sponsor page for businesses who donated.

At its heart, the FUNd Run is both a community event and a fundraiser. In a year when the anticipated need is higher than ever, the FUNd Run will not have a 2020 race giveaway. We recognize many participants look forward to the race swag and wear it proudly throughout the year. People registered for the event by WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 may visit the FUNd Run Swag Give-A-Way and pick up some vintage FUNd Run giveaways from past years. The Swag Give-A-Way will be held on October 1 from 2pm to 6pm (rain date: October 2, 2pm to 6pm). Location: Lincoln School (north parking lot).
