PTO Thank You!

An incredible first week of PTO lunches at Sherwood! Thank you to all of our volunteers for spending your days helping our pandas have a successful lunch. A very special shoutout to Ally Kirshenbaum for coordinating this special PTO treat!

Thank You Mizrahi Grill!

A special THANK YOU to Sherwood parent-owned, Mizrahi Grill, who generously surprised our Sherwood faculty with delicious falafel and French fries today! An incredibly generous treat. Thank you!

Sherwood Volunteers

Please remember to submit your CrisisGo self certification prior to each visit in order to enter the building.

At the moment, we also need to verify your COVID Vaccination Card. It would be appreciated if you could show it to Mrs. Nataly Garcia (Secretary) at your earliest convenience. You will only need to show your card once. Once it is verified, you are all set to volunteer at Sherwood.

Car Line Sign

In order to increase the efficiency of our dismissal procedures we are asking families to display a sign in their front windshield with their child(ren)'s name(s). We would greatly appreciate seeing many on Monday!

Mrs. Skiest passed out many signs today. If you didn't not receive one please see this link to print a copy from home or ask for one next time you are in the car line.

Thank you for your continued partnership as we strive to improve our procedures.

112 Education Foundation FUNd Run 2021

The FUNd Run is scheduled for Saturday, October 2 at Ravinia Festival. We are excited to offer two options to participate in 2021:

  1. Runners and walkers can register for the IN-PERSON 5K Run or 1-Mile Family Walk on Saturday, October 2 at Ravinia Festival.
  2. Runners and walkers can register to participate in a virtual 5K or 1-Mile Family Walk. This option allows participants to complete the event on their own schedule and on a course of their choice (Oct. 2/Oct. 3).

Procedures for Communicating PM Transportation Changes

If there is a change of plans regarding how a student is getting home please email your student's teacher and Sherwood's administrative assistant Nataly Garcia ( If a change occurs after 12pm please call the office so we can ensure the message makes it to your child and their teacher.


Each day parents are required to self certify that their child has no symptoms of COVID-19 and has not been exposed to anyone with symptoms. You will receive an email from Crisis Go every morning at 6:00 a.m. Click on the link in the email to complete the self certification process. You must record your child’s temperature and answer all of the questions. Parents must complete the self certification process by 8:00 a.m. each day for all students.

The system will only email the primary contact for certification. If you need to change that contact, please submit a technology support ticket.

Administrators and staff will have access to a list of students who have not self certified. Students who do not complete the self certification process will not be admitted into the building. Thank you for your cooperation on this important safety matter.
