SPRING BREAK April 6th-April 10th


During the district’s scheduled spring break, which begins Monday, April 6, families may pick up grab-and-go meals at 136 school sites across the city from Monday–Thursday, 9 a.m.–1 p.m. A detailed list of spring break meal sites is available here.

Beginning the following week (Monday, April 13), the district will launch a consolidated meal plan under which 276 schools that were most frequented by families will continue to provide free meals, and schools that were less utilized by families will no longer serve as distribution sites.

Sayre building will be closed from April 6th-April 10th. We're still available! If you have a question or need support during the week of Spring Break, please call Ph: (773) 242 8968 (Ms. Donatelli or (708) 669-6251 (Ms. Adekunle) between 7:00am and 4:00pm.

Important Updates

Under Governor Pritzker’s Stay at Home order, all Illinois residents have been asked to stay home except for essential needs and to maintain at least six feet of distance from others at all times. Earlier today, Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot implemented additional measures to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic through social distancing, including immediately closing the city’s Lakefront, Riverwalk, 606 trail, and all adjacent parks.

Please note that outside of food distribution, all CPS schools, fields and playgrounds are closed to the public. The playgrounds in particular pose a high risk for transmission and it is critically important that we take these measures seriously and do our part to keep ourselves and our communities healthy.


Hi 8th graders,

Here are the latest GoCPS updates. If you have any questions, please email me.

GoCPS phone #: 773-553-2060

Principal Discretion: TBD - No dates or packet information available yet regarding principal discretion. I will let you know when new information becomes available.

Round 2 Opening: TBD / NO DATE yet for when round 2 opens. Please be aware that if you apply in Round 2, and get an offer in Round 2 that you will automatically forfeit your 1st Round offer. Thus, make sure that if you apply in Round 2 that you want to attend that school more than the school you received an offer for in Round 1.

Waitlist Information: If you accept a school in Round 1, you will NOT lose your position on the waitlist. The only way you lose your spot on the waitlist is if you remove yourself from the waitlist via your GoCPS online account.
