Kimball Hill: Back to School

Week of August 9, 2021

Classroom Teacher Assignment

All families should have been able to view their child's classroom teacher for the 2021-22 school year in the Parent Portal this past Friday. Please call the main office at 847-963-5200 if you were unable to view. Our office staff will be able to assist.

You can expect the teacher to reach out to you once they return from their summer vacation; which will be the week of Monday, August 16th.

If you have not provided residency proof and have been contacted by our office staff, you will be unable to view your child's teacher until that has been submitted and approved.

Mask Update: From the Superintendent's Office

As you may have heard, Governor JB Pritzker issued an Executive Order that states that all students, teachers, and staff at pre-kindergarten - 12th grade schools and daycares will be required to wear masks regardless of vaccination status, effective immediately. Therefore, all students and staff in District 15 will be required to wear masks/face coverings when they are in any of our schools and on our buses. While I know families have various views on masks in school, I thank you for understanding that all schools must comply with this Executive Order.

Meet the Teacher

Please come to Kimball Hill and meet your child's teacher on Tuesday, August 17th at 8:30am-9:30am. Teachers will be in all day mandatory professional development led by administration and unable to meet at a different time. We understand how busy families are so please feel free to email your child's teacher at a later time to connect. Masks are required.
