Winter Concert

Our winter concert will look a little different this year. The concert will be Kindergarten and 1st Grade students as well as Chorus. The date for this will be Friday, December 17th at 1:30. More information will be going home next Tuesday.

Drop Off and Pick Up

Please do not drop students off on the opposite curb from where school is and walking them across, especially on the 2nd/3rd grade doors. and the 4/5 grade doors. This holds up the line, but is also dangerous. I see it happen constantly and while we'd like to think that drivers are being careful when they drive around our school, it isn't always the case. We don't want your child to be in a tragic accident.


If you are picking students up at the K/1 doors, please DO NOT park and block the driveway and please DO NOT park in the driveway leading to the parking lot of St Germaine. That is against fire code. You may park in one of the parking spots in the lot. I come out those doors and get everything moving smoothly and then move on to another area and then we have problems again at the K/1 doors. Please follow the rules whether I am there or not.


Please do not bring pets to pick up or drop off your child. We have children with allergies, but we have also had instances where the dogs have gotten loose and really caused problems. I love my dog too, but please leave them at home.

Please note the drop off locations and where you are allowed to park and get out of your car.

CoVid Information (new information)

Families will be notified if their child is found to have been in close contact with a CoVid positive case at school. If your child is found to be a close contact then they will have to quarantine for a period of time. More information will be given to you regarding your particular circumstances. Students may also be quarantined due to showing symptoms.


If your child has been FULLY VACCINATED (meaning its been at least 2 weeks after the second dose of the vaccine) please let us know and your child will not have to quarantine. If you are willing to let us know ahead of time, please call Mrs Malloy our nurse and she will add it to Skyward.


If your child is suspected of having CoVid or has symptoms that are associated with CoVid we can only accept a real time PCR test. Not an Antigen or Rapid test due to false positive results. Finally, we cannot accept alternate diagnosis anymore either. A student can have for example, strep AND Covid at the same time, so as of next week we have to have the negative Covid PCR test.


When students are quarantined, they will be given work for someone to pick up in the foyer of school. Students will get in invitation to a Homework Help Google Classroom to log on between 3:30 and 4:30 to get assistance from a Hannum staff member for work that they are struggling with. They just need to log on during that time and someone will be available to help them while they are quarantining.

SHIELD Illinois

FYI.... We have a new testing day. Hannum will now test on Tuesdays.


Please check out the button below for information on opting in to having your child proactively tested for Covid 19.


The SHIELD Illinois program is a quick, simple, and non-invasive COVID-19 screening test. Students that have opted-in to the program will provide a small amount of saliva that is tested at a professional lab. Results of the test are then provided to families and our school district within the days following. The program offers students the opportunity to reduce or waive quarantine requirements in the event of close contact with a positive case or if the student demonstrates symptoms. You can opt-in to the program at any time by accessing Online Forms in Skyward Family Access. More information about the SHIELD Illinois program can be found at: d123.org/shield-illinois-testing-program
