Ann Reid Families,

Thank you all for celebrating your children with us at Parent-Teacher Conferences. You play a huge role in our mission to partner with families and the community to ensure all young children in D203 receive high quality play-based learning experiences to nurture independence, collaboration, critical thinking, and social skills.

Another "Thank You" to the parents and Home and School who donated gift cards and food to support the teachers and staff during the long evening.

Health and Safety Tips

When you enrolled your child in school you signed a form verifying that prior to utilizing District transportation and/or entering a District building, your student will receive a daily symptom screening at home by an adult caregiver to determine if my student is experiencing any COVID19 symptoms. We are all busy, and information quickly changes. Below are those symptoms you should be checking:

  • Temperature of 100.4 (or greater) degrees Fahrenheit/38 degrees Celsius;
  • New Cough;
  • New onset of moderate to severe headache;
  • Shortness of breath;
  • Sore throat;
  • Nausea and/or Vomiting;
  • Diarrhea;
  • abdominal pain from a unknown source;
  • New congestion or runny nose;
  • New loss of taste or smell;
  • Fatigue from an unknown cause;
  • Muscle and body aches;
  • Any other COVID-10 symptoms identified by the CDC or IDPH

Here are links to those forms for your reference:
