Lost and Found

If your child has lost anything this year you may want to come and check out our Lost and Found. I had some 5th grade students help me by laying the items out to make it easier to find items. We have an inordinate amount of "stuff" that has been turned in. I will hang on to it until April 22. Whatever is still there will be donated to Goodwill. Please come check it out. If you are here for an event, that's a perfect time to check it out.

5th Grade Parents

The 5th Grade medical requirement forms will be in your child's Tuesday Take Home today. Please be sure to look for them and have them completed as soon as possible. You may return the forms to Hannum as long as they are completed before the school year ends. Please contact Mrs Malloy if you do not receive them. Her extension is 7897

End of Year Dates

Not knowing what the world was going to look like we didn't put any end of the year events on our calendars. These are the end of the year dates for you to be aware of. Many parents have asked that we spread these dates out...others have asked that they be together...so in knowing that we will never make everyone happy...these are the dates we are going with.

Drop Off and Pick Up Reminders

K/1 Doors: Please do not block the driveway...especially at pick up. Please do not park in the driveway leading into the St Germaine parking lot. You must park in an actual spot.

2/3 Doors: Please be patient and wait in line when dropping off your students. Do not cut in front of another car so you can drop your child off.

4/5 Doors: Please do not pull up going Eastbound on 99th Street and walk your children across this very busy street. Pull up far enough if you want to watch your child until they get in the building. If you don't you will block everyone else trying to drop off their kids.

CoVid Updates

*Masking is now STRONGLY RECOMMENDED but not required for all students, staff and parents. If students take the bus for band or any other reason, they are still required to wear a mask.

*Positive cases will still need to quarantine for 5 days. After 5 days they may return but will need to be masked for an additional 5 days.

SHIELD Illinois

FYI.... We continue to test on Tuesdays when we have school. We get results anywhere from early the next morning until Thursday. We will always try to call you with a positive test as soon as we know. If we get results early in the morning, we will attempt to contact you before school begins.

The SHIELD Illinois program is a quick, simple, and non-invasive COVID-19 screening test. Students that have opted-in to the program will provide a small amount of saliva that is tested at a professional lab. Results of the test are then provided to families and our school district within the days following. The program offers students the opportunity to reduce or waive quarantine requirements in the event of close contact with a positive case or if the student demonstrates symptoms. You can opt-in to the program at any time by accessing Online Forms in Skyward Family Access. More information about the SHIELD Illinois program can be found at: d123.org/shield-illinois-testing-program

It now looks like depending on when you signed your child up, they may not be able to test until the following week.

SHIELD Parent Portal

Follow these directions so you can get your child's results when they are ready.
