Give a Can; Lend a Hand Food Drive

Winston Warriors are participating in the Give a Can; Lend a Hand Food Drive. Items collected will be donated to the food pantry at Journeys, a local shelter providing assistance to those in need.

Participating homerooms are competing to bring in the most items, and the winning homeroom will win a prize from Mr. Da Costa! Please consider donating to this very worthy cause!

Warriors Wear Masks

Per Governor Pritzker's Executive Order, all students, staff and visitors at any K-12 schools in the State of Illinois are required to wear masks.


Parents and guardians, please make sure that you are screening your student(s) daily for COVID-like symptoms before sending them to school and asking the self-certification questions in the back of the lanyards. If your student or anyone in the household is experiencing any symptoms please keep them at home and have them get tested.

Chromebook Reminders

Students should be charging their Chromebooks nightly. We encourage familes to create a system that everynight at a certain hour, the student puts their Chromebook to charge as they pack their backpack for the following day.

Reporting an Absence

If your student will be absent for any reason, please give us a call on the attendance line.
