Hello! We are off and running with the start of another school AWESOME school year. I hope you have had a wonderful summer with family and friends! The PTO, school staff and custodians have been very busy getting prepared for the upcoming school year. District calendars and updated bus routes are available in the office. “Meet the Teacher” this past Tuesday afternoon was well attended with students and parents visiting classrooms to say “Hi” and drop off supplies. Kindergarten students will begin school on Monday, August 26th.
Two new procedures are in place this year. First, both sets of doors to DuJardin School are locked and visitors will need to be buzzed in at the first set of doors. There is a doorbell in the center of the double doors along with a speaker. Visitors allowed into the vestibule will check in at the office through the sliding glass window before being allowed into the building. Secondly, please see the article below and read the letter from Superintendent, Dr.Bartelt regarding lunch delivery at school. If you have any questions regarding either of these changes please give me a call, 630-894-9200 or stop by the office.
