Kennedy School News
March 2nd - March 6th
Please note that the district is actively monitoring your child's attendance at school. We are required by the state to file truancy for students who are absent 5% or more of the school year (9 unexcused absences).
Instructional time is precious and we expect parents to ensure that students arrive on time and ready to learn. Modeling prompt arrival to school is important in preparing students for success.
Kindergarten Information Night
If you have a child who will be entering Kindergarten next school year, please attend the Kindergarten Information Night.
We hope to provide an overview of what to expect in Kindergarten and how we can begin your child's wonderful educational journey together.

Illinois 5 Essentials
School District 81 will join other districts across the state in participating in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. The survey is now open, and will remain open until March 13th. The survey data will provide feedback that will help shape and guide our improvement efforts. All District 81 teachers, parents, and our middle school students will be asked to participate. Please note that students will be taking the survey at school.
The Parent Survey
Your feelings about your child’s education are important, and we are grateful for this opportunity to receive your thoughts and feedback. Your identity is not shared with District 81, and your responses are kept confidential.
To take the survey please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois and select the PARENT survey to begin. You will then need to type “Cook” into the County field. Type in the school that your child attends, and then select the correct school from the dropdown box.
