Big picture

P-EBT and You

The State of Illinois is approved to provide new Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer Program (P-EBT) benefits to all eligible Illinois students. Families in our district may qualify for P-EBT because we are a school that participates in the National School Lunch Programโ€™s Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). You do not need to complete an application to receive these benefits. Please note that citizenship status does not affect eligibility.

If you have any questions, including your current mailing address on file, please reach out to your studentโ€™s school office.


ACCESS Testing

Our students are required to take federally mandated assessments every spring. ACCESS for Ells is an assessment that determines levels of English Proficiency in the areas of Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. You are receiving this letter because your child is required to take the ACCESS for Ells 2.0. This includes any student who has refused services or has been withdrawn from services by a parent/guardian.

If you have questions about the ACCESS for Ells assessment, please click the button below or reach out to your child's teacher or school principal. Thank you for your partnership in your child's academic success.

Hybrid Learning Updates

Attendance Update

Starting on Monday, March 1, in-person students must attend school during their designated AM/PM session. If they do not attend in-person during their designated time, students will be marked absent. Remote learning during their designated time is only available for students who are quarantined or experiencing COVID symptoms.

Please Help us Reach our Goal!

Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand your childโ€™s school conditions and guide improvement. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child.

The Illinois 5Essentials Survey for students and teachers will be conducted from February 3, 2021, through April 2, 2021. The Parent Survey Supplement will be conducted during that same timeframe. To take the survey, click the link below.
