Ferson Creek eNews

April 8, 2022

From the Principal, Kristy McKnight

It's the time of year where we start making plans for next school year. With that, if you would like to provide feedback on your child's learning environment for the 2022-2023 school year, now is the time. Please see this letter which outlines the framework for this feedback. Please note that the deadline to submit feedback is Friday, April 15th.


Registration for returning students opens on April 25th! You can find all of the details here.


In accordance with legislation passed last year, the school district began providing free menstrual products to students and staff. New dispensers have now been installed in all girls bathrooms at Ferson Creek Elementary School so that students can access these products discreetly. Feminine hygiene products are also available in the school nurses’ office. As these dispensers are found in all girls bathrooms, your child may have questions regarding these products. Discussing this at home would be encouraged so that children have a better understanding of the purpose of these products.

From The Nurse

Illinois law requires all children in kindergarten and 2nd grade submit a dental examination form completed by a licensed dentist by May 15, 2023. Find all the details here.
