Sayre Community Newsletter

COVID School Closure Edition

March 27, 2020

Sayre friends and families.

To say that we miss our Sayre family is a gross understatement! While our empty halls and classrooms are a reminder of the cost of the times we find ourselves in, we are grateful that the district has taken measures to ensure the health and safety of all our students and their families. To ensure that we keep the community spirit alive, please expect to hear from us every week on Fridays by 1:00pm. We hope to bring you up to date news from the district as well as just fun and interesting things to keep us connected!

Student Work Packets

We know that students may have completed all the assignments sent home on Monday, March 16th. Please visit our website, and click on the COVID-19 Closure alert on the top left corner. Scrolling down to the bottom, you will see additional work assigned by grade levels. Teachers are also working diligently to provide additional work for the month of April and we will share those updates as they become available. The original packets, as well as new materials, will be made available on Tuesday, March 31st, on our website, and in the main office during food pick up hours 10 am-1 pm.
Big picture
We are thinking about our 8th graders today as they learn about their high school options. Go Bulldogs! We encourage you to reach out to Ms. Adelman at if you need guidance or have any questions.

Important Updates

Under Governor Pritzker’s Stay at Home order, all Illinois residents have been asked to stay home except for essential needs and to maintain at least six feet of distance from others at all times. Earlier today, Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot implemented additional measures to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic through social distancing, including immediately closing the city’s Lakefront, Riverwalk, 606 trail, and all adjacent parks.

Please note that outside of food distribution, all CPS schools, fields and playgrounds are closed to the public. The playgrounds in particular pose a high risk for transmission and it is critically important that we take these measures seriously and do our part to keep ourselves and our communities healthy.
