Our most often requested information is all linked in this document for your convenience! We add information and update this document regularly!
Our kids have had a great year, overall. I don't define "great" as all students getting straight As and being perfectly behaved. What I define as "great" is that our kids are doing their best, especially during challenging times. We have students who have their behavioral challenges, students who struggle with learning, and students who face issues with anxiety and depression. But they are doing their best given the challenges they face. Our job, as a school, is to support them the best we can. Our classroom teachers and the support staff in the office have worked hard this year to support our students in many, many different ways.
The end of the year provides some unique challenges. We see some behaviors and grades slip. We see some students struggle because school is their safe place and it will end for the year soon. But most of our students do just fine and continue to do the best they can.
As we move toward our last 8 days together, please talk to your child about what you expect from them at school. Encourage them to do their best and to continue to focus on school. We will be doing school work through Tuesday, May 24. On Wednesday, May 25, we will take the day to have some fun together. Students who make poor decisions may be excluded from some of our celebrations. But we truly want every single student to participate in our last day together!
We hope that our kids continue to do their best as we end the year together and we appreciate your support!
Enjoy your weekend!
Reminders from the Health Office
Medication Pickup Reminder
Please do not forget to pick up all medications by the last day of school! Those medicines not picked up by an adult by May 25th will need to be disposed. The only medications that can be given to a student to transport home are those that are allowed to be self carried (Epi Pens, Pancreatic Enzymes, or inhalers). If there is a self-carry form on file for one of those medications, please remind your student to stop in and pick up medication before leaving on the last day. All medication orders must be renewed each school year. Forms are available on the district website under “Parents”, then “forms” or by contacting the health office.
Appointments for the required 6th grade and 9th-grade physicals tend to fill up quickly and should be scheduled now! Please submit the completed physicals to the respective schools as they are done. They are required to be submitted for review prior to the first day.
The health office is closed during the summer months. We will return for limited hours beginning in early August. Please contact me if there are new medical concerns for your child or if your child will need a health plan at school.
School Physicals for the 2022-2023 School Year
The Illinois school code requires that students entering an Illinois school for the first time, and all sixth and ninth grades, must submit evidence of a physical examination and a complete record of immunizations prior to starting classes or receiving services. Physical Exams and Vaccine Records are required for students prior to August 10, 2022 (the first day of school for the 22/23 year). Make your appointments today as these appointments fill up quickly! Please contact your school nurse prior to May 25, 2022, if you need a copy of your child's immunizations.
Have a safe and healthy summer!
Online Registration for Next Year
