Dear Kimball Hill Families,

Save the date! We are excited to invite our Kimball Hill Families to our annual Spring Open House which will take place on Wednesday, May 3 from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. This event is designed for our students to show their families around the school and view work that was completed throughout the school year.

We appreciate your partnership and continued support and look forward to sharing this special evening with you! Please feel free to contact me with questions, concerns and/or feedback.

As a reminder, there is NO SCHOOL TOMORROW, April 7th!

Online registration through Infinite Campus is OPEN. EVERY student; new and returning, must register each year. It is extremely important that all families register as soon as possible and do not wait until the summer. Our staffing needs are determined by the number of students registered each year. Waiting to register right before school begins can cause changes to classes, changes in staffing and the need to re-section classes in order to balance classes. We kindly ask you to register as soon as possible. Thank you for your support!

Elementary Human Growth & Development 4th-6th Grade

District 15 is committed to partnering with families to ensure the health and safety of all students. We recognize that parents/caregivers are the primary human growth and development educators of their children. Health instruction in District 15 currently follows the Illinois Instructional Mandates and Illinois Health Standards.

No earlier than April 24th, instruction will begin on the following topics:

  • 4th grade: Hygiene & introductory puberty

  • 5th grade: Puberty & introduction to the reproductive system

  • 6th grade: Body image, the reproductive system, pregnancy, & childbirth

District 15 does not have comprehensive programs for these topics. The District has NOT adopted the National Sex Education Standards. The Illinois School Code establishes the following “opt-out” provisions for parents/guardians in relation to “Family life, including sexual abstinence.”

Please refer to the following resources for more information about what is covered during the human growth and development unit:

Please contact your child’s teacher if you have questions about what is covered. This does not constitute an opt-out.

If, after reviewing the above information, you prefer to opt your child out of the human growth and development unit of instruction, please complete the Opt-Out Form. The opt-out form is due Friday, April 21st. The form will be closed after that time.

Students who were opted-out from this unit will go to an alternate location during this time. More information about this procedure will be sent to those who opt-out upon submission of the form. Please have a discussion at home with your child about this decision.

En Espanol

Estimados padres / tutores,

El Distrito 15 se compromete a colaborar con las familias para garantizar la salud y la seguridad de todos los estudiantes. Reconocemos que los padres/tutores son los principales educadores del crecimiento y desarrollo humano de sus hijos. La instrucción de salud en el Distrito 15 actualmente sigue los Mandatos de instrucción de Illinois y los Estándares de salud de Illinois.

No antes del 24 de abril, comenzará la instrucción sobre los siguientes temas:

  • 4to grado: Higiene y pubertad introductoria

  • 5to grado: Pubertad e introducción al sistema reproductivo

  • 6to grado: Imagen corporal, el sistema reproductivo, embarazo y parto

El Distrito 15 no tiene programas integrales para estos temas. El Distrito NO ha adoptado los Estándares Nacionales de Educación Sexual. El Código Escolar de Illinois establece las siguientes disposiciones de "exclusión voluntaria" para los padres/tutores en relación con la "vida familiar, incluida la abstinencia sexual".

Consulte los siguientes recursos para obtener más información sobre lo que se cubre durante la unidad de crecimiento y desarrollo humano:

Comuníquese con el maestro de su hijo si tiene preguntas sobre lo que está cubierto. Esto no constituye una exclusión voluntaria.

Si, después de revisar la información anterior, prefiere excluir a su hijo de la unidad de instrucción de crecimiento y desarrollo humano, complete el formulario de exclusión voluntaria. El formulario de exclusión se debe entregar al menos 3 días escolares antes de que comience la instrucción en la escuela de su hijo. El formulario se cerrará después de ese tiempo.

Los estudiantes que optaron por no participar en esta unidad irán a un lugar alternativo durante este tiempo. Se enviará más información sobre este procedimiento a quienes opten por no participar al enviar el formulario. Tenga una conversación en casa con su hijo sobre esta decisión.

Para todas las preguntas adicionales, comuníquese con el administrador del edificio de su hijo.

Sectioning Classes for 2023-2024

During the next several weeks the teachers will begin the process of student sectioning for the 2023-24 school year. Our school sectioning process is a team effort that is completed with great consideration and care. Your child’s current teacher, the grade level team, special area personnel and school administration each play an important role in the placement process. The team considers many factors and works to place each individual child into a classroom setting that best meets the educational needs of the child.

The staff considers and balances many factors in the sectioning process:

  • Individual learning Gender balance

  • Student combinations

  • Special Education and 504 needs

  • Support services needs Class size (in line with BOE targets)

  • Academic strengths

  • Academic growth areas

Parental requests should be submitted in writing (letters or emails) to my attention no later than Friday, April 14, 2023. No letters can be accepted after this date as it impacts the overall balance of classrooms. Letters should cite reasons for wanting a specific learning environment, not a specific teacher or mention specific students; unless there is grave concern and even then we cannot guarantee placement due to the number of sections.

We truly hope that you will rely on our professional judgment as we group the children with the idea of creating the very best learning environment for all students.

Classroom assignments at Kimball Hill School for the 2023-24 school year will be available via Infinite Campus grades K-6 in mid-August after open registration has taken place, as directed by the district office. If you do not have an email address you will receive your child’s assignment in the mail which means everyone will not receive their mailing on the same day.

Morning and afternoon placement for kindergarten will be mailed in early June for those who have registered with the school. If you know families with kindergarten age students, encourage them to register their child early so that AM or PM placement can be made and arrangements made sooner for the other half of the day in terms of daycare, etc. If you completed an application for Kindergarten Dual Language, District office will be contacting you with lottery results.
