The News You Can Use
November 20, 2020
You should be receiving an additional newsletter today from me about supply pickup for second trimester specific to each grade. We recognize that some families are planning to work remotely in other locations, and others are not comfortable continuing to come to school due to increased mitigation efforts in our area. We also want to make management of materials as easy as possible, so we are asking you to return materials that are no longer needed. See the grade level specific newsletters for details.
In the meantime, we miss seeing you in person. I hope that you are all safe and healthy. My thoughts are with those of you who are worried about loved ones, or who are navigating positive cases in your families or small social circles. Don't forget to practice mitigation efforts to ensure that we can return to hybrid learning as soon as possible. As we near this holiday season, I encourage you to think small when it comes to gatherings, and stay within your household if possible.
Wear a mask
Wash your hands
Watch your distance

Brown Paper Bags Needed for Moraine Township
The Moriane Township Food Pantry is in need of paper grocery bags WITH HANDLES. They can be dropped off at any time on the front steps (there's a blue bin) of the Supervisor's Office: 800 Central Avenue, Highland Park, 60035.
Please DO NOT leave food items for donation at this time. If you'd like to help the Pantry meet the increased need in our community, consider a cash donation so that we may continue to purchase specific, essential items for our families.
