Starting Monday, April 5th we will have all in-person learners here five days a week which means we can get back to some type of normalcy for the remainder of the school year. Remember that the 3 W's are still so important at school and that self certifying will still take place each day. This means that parents must self certify their children on the Raptor health screener each day before sending students to school.
There is a job opening in the DuJardin School front office. Mrs. Marshall, front office secretary, is moving to the District Office to take a position which leaves us with a vacancy in the front office. If you are interested in applying for this 12 month position click here to complete an application. We thank Mrs. Marshall for her years of service to the DuJardin School community and wish her luck at her new position. She won't be moving far just down the sidewalk.
The following is a tentative assessment schedule for DuJardin School.
- April 12-23 Illinois Science Assessment (ISA), 5th grade
- April 26-May 14 MAP assessments, Grades K-5
- May 17-27 Illinois Assessment for Readiness (IAR), Grades 3-5
Stay tuned for more details.
Student grouping and placement for the 2021-2022 school year takes place in late May. In preparation for this important task a Student Placement Information form is available on this link. This request form is due back to Mr. Dwyer by Friday, April 9th. Although a request form is not required, parent input about a child’s academic experiences can provide valuable insight to this process. Please remember that considerations for placing students in classes include but are not limited to class size, gender ratio, academic levels, student learning styles, specific student needs, diversity, and student peer relations. It is not recommended that a parent request a specific teacher due to the fact that requests are difficult to satisfy and teaching assignments can change from school year to school year. If you have questions about this form, please phone Mr. Mark Dwyer at 630-894-9200.
