Magic In The Middle

Arcola News~ 2/25/21

Dear Arcola Families,

We are in our last week of the month! We are weathering the storms as we are Arcola strong in mind, body and heart. Please take a moment to read some important points this week.

Stay safe, strong and connected!

Early Morning Car Drop

Need more time in the morning? Just a reminder that car drop begins at 7:45AM. Students can enter the set of doors near the auditorium and will head to the commons/cafe area and wait for the 8:00 bell.

Fire Drills

This week we conducted two fire drills, Wednesday and Thursday, to review proper evacuation with students in an emergency. Teachers reviewed how and where to exit the building safely. Drills are an important part of our safety plan that we practice monthly.

Student Services

Stay tuned as we roll-out this plan for March 8th! Tutoring help will be available! In the interim, period 8 is a great place to receive help from your teachers.


Please help encourage habits with your child by having them check PowerSchool frequently. This is where information on progress can be found on grades, assignments and assessments. As the middle of the marking period draws near, you will be receiving emails with specific data from each teacher in any class where your child is performing below a 69. The purpose of this is to notify you and your child as to the grade and any missing work. Again, our teachers are here to help you so please reach out. Please look for information after March 4th.


Please remember to complete the survey now for your plans with regard to the remainder of the year. Options are 4 days on premise or all virtual. Deadline is Sunday!

PM Car Pick-Up- Important Change!

Effective March 1, car pick-up for Skyview/Arcola campus will begin at 3pm to allow for buses to arrive and depart campus. Cars will not be permitted to enter campus until 3:00pm daily.
