~Week of 2/28/22~
Tomorrow, March 2nd is a late start day. School will start at 9:30AM
Our final Trimester has begun and we are confident that our scholars will continue to demonstrate their excellence. Hopefully, each of our families were able to take part in this process during family conferences! Thank you to all of our families who shared in the virtual opportunity to discuss our scholars' positive progress!
We are all aware our District 123 has moved to a mask “strongly recommended” policy. We are all incredibly proud of all of our scholars and staff as they exhibited a tremendous amount of respect for everyone’s personal choice based on their individual comfort levels to wear a mask or not. As we continue to operate with these new guidelines, we all have a collective responsibility to respect and support one another regardless of an individual's choice to wear a mask. As always, we will continue to navigate in the most positive Mustang Manner!
Updates and Reminders
Here are a few updates and reminders:
This is a D123 Late Start. School will begin at 9:30 am and end at normal time.
SWIC Tournament: Good Luck to all of our scholar-athletes as the conference tournament begins this week! Go Mustangs!!
Welcome to March and Women's History Month! Scholars will be hearing and taking part in learning about some important and prominent figures in our history this month.
Morning and After school Drop Off: The frigid weather will forever challenge our patience, but please continue to be courteous, safe and cautious of one another, our scholars and our neighbors. Keep in mind drop off in the morning or the afternoon must take place on Oak Center Drive in the back of our building. We need the front lot for bus drop off and pick up. We are working with local agencies to determine options for our parent drop off on Oak Center Dr. Dr. McNichols will also be meeting with Oak Lawn Village Board to discuss options for traffic challenges.
Social Media: Continue to monitor and discuss the importance for the use of social media and potential implications for our scholars. Technology and information is at the tips of our fingers. It is all of our responsibility to utilize these tools as positive resources and model respectfulness. Our school continues to be challenged by negative social media interactions affecting our school and scholars.
