Happy Veterans Day From Kingsley School!

The rain didn't stop us! We slightly altered our plans for our flag display Thursday morning. Students who submitted a photo for the Veteran Honor Wall came down to place a flag in honor of their Veteran(s). We had about 50 Veterans from our very own Kingsley community honored! On behalf of all of us at Kingsley School, thank you for your service!

Kingsley School Picture Day Update

Our picture retake day is Tuesday, November 16th. Picture packages from the October Picture Day were sent home this week. If your student participated in picture day in October and you want your child to participate in retake day, please return the picture package and your student will have their picture taken again. If you received a digital download only and want your child to do a retake, no need to send anything back. If your student was absent on picture day and you want to place an initial order for picture day, please go to to place an order. Questions? Call the Kingsley office at (630) 719-5850.

District 58 invites families to voluntarily share an electronic image of their child’s vaccination card with their building’s health office. Providing proof of vaccination is not required. However, current CDC guidance excuses fully vaccinated individuals from having to quarantine unless symptomatic.By sharing a copy of your child’s card, if your child is a close contact, having the vaccination card on hand will expedite the school’s investigation process. Copies of proof of vaccination will be kept in each student’s individual health file and treated in the same way as all health records. Please feel free to send a picture of your child's COVID vaccination card to your school nurse!
