Kennedy School News
December 14th - December 18th
On behalf of all the staff at Kennedy School, I would like to wish all of our families a very restful, peaceful and joy-filled holiday season.
Take time to relax and enjoy time with family & friends making beautiful memories. Please remember the magic of the season and set aside some time to see the world through the eyes of a child! We look forward to seeing you all again in 2016!
Winter break begins after school on Friday, December 18 & and school resumes on Monday, January 4th!
Cold & Flu Season Are Here!
Like many other school districts, Schiller Park District 81 is experiencing higher than usual absenteeism rates in its schools, due to fever, cough, etc. Some of these point to influenza-like illness, which the nursing staff is monitoring in conjunction with Cook County Health & Hospitals System guidelines.
With the arrival of cold and flu season, the Cook County Health & Hospitals System (CCHHS) is recommending increased awareness and precautions to help control and prevent the spread of influenza (flu). The CCHHS has created a fact sheet in both English and Spanish which lists important guidelines.
It is important that they are adequately prepared for the cold temperatures. At this time of the year every child should be wearing a coat, hat, scarf and gloves when leaving the house in the morning. When there is snow on the ground boots are necessary.
