Art Smart

Thank you to all the students who shared their marvelous renditions of “Portrait No. 1” by Joan Miró on Flipgrid! Below are the winners for November. Congratulations to all the winners!

The December Art Smart Challenge is “Snowy Owl” by John James Audubon. Audubon’s goal when he was 18 years old was to paint a picture of every bird he saw in North America. He reached his goal by publishing a book called “The Birds of America.” He also painted other animals native to North America including snakes, rabbits, foxes and coyotes. You can go see some of his works nearby at The Morton Arboretum!

Encourage your child to try out Art Smart this month! You can print the attached December Art Smart Challenge form at home or pick up a copy in the Arbor View pick-up area. The students will display their Art Smart coloring pages through Flipgrid. All the directions are included in the December Art Smart Challenge form. For questions or more information, please send an e-mail to

News from the district

Free meals available Mondays and Wednesdays, including during break

All CCSD 89 families can pick up free breakfasts and lunches any CCSD 89 school. Meals are available from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Mondays, or 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesdays at all schools. Meals will continue to be available at the same times and days during winter break. Info:

Please continue to report COVID-19 symptoms to school nurse

If your student is COVID-19 positive, has COVID-19 symptoms, or is in quarantine because they were a close contact, please email or call Marcia Johnson (630) 469-5505. She can answer questions about next steps or contact tracing.

The ability to understand transmission levels and potential absences in schools (for both students and staff) will help the district make determinations on returning to in-person learning.

If your student has COVID-19 symptoms or is COVID-19 positive but they are healthy enough to participate in remote learning, they will not be marked absent. If your student is not able to participate in remote learning, families can report the absence in the traditional manner.

While the students are in full remote learning, the schools will not be sending notifications to families. The district will continue to update historical data on student/staff positive cases, exclusions, and quarantine.
