Santa's Secret Shop:

We are having our annual PTO Santa's Secret Shop December 4-8 for all grades during school hours.  The children will have an opportunity to shop for great Christmas presents at low prices for their families and pets.  The teachers will sign up their homeroom classes to shop and let the students know when they will be doing their shopping.  The gifts will be bagged and ready to put under your Christmas tree.

To volunteer to help the kids shop, purchase or bag their gifts, please call or text Paula Krohe at (815) 257-3772.

The shopping list will be going home in the newsletter, this will be helpful when others are assiting the younger children to shop for gifts.

Homework Program Dismissal:

Effective Tuesday, November 28th, students that stay for the Homework Program will follow new dismissal procedures for locations where they are to be picked up.

Walkers will be dismissed as usual to proceed out Door E2 down the alley.

Car riders will exit the building out of Door N1 on the Northside of the new addition.  All students that are picked up by a parent or guardian will only exit out this door.

Message from the Office

ATTENTION!!! Please notifiy the Office if you have an address change or phone number change.  If there is ever an emergency it's important to keep all records current.

Arriving in the Morning and Picking up

Parents, we need your assistance with the rules for arriving in the morning and picking up after school.

Before School:

The school day begins at 8:15 and ends at 3:00.  Wednesdays are 2:20 dismissal.  Students should start arriving by 8:00 and no later than 8:15.    Lately we have had students being dropped off at school as early as 7:30; Students should not be on school grounds before 8:00.  Breakfast children may enter at 8:00.  The doors will be locked until 8:05.  Children walking should use the crossing walk if they need to cross the street.  The Crossing Guard is there to assist them.  Riders should use the north main entrance by the office.  Parents who drive their students to school must drop off the children on the west side of the building between 8:00 and 8:15.

After School:

School dismisses at 3:00 pm.  Students are to leave the building immediately at close of school day, unless under the supervision of a teacher.  Students who are walking will exit the building using the east side doors near the playground.

Bus Notes:

Parents should send a note with their child at the beginning of the day.  Phone calls will not be accepted.  The office will write a Bus Slip that must be given to the bus driver letting them know your child is not riding.  Parents or guardians arriving at the end of the day to pick up a child will not be allowed to take the student off the bus unless a bus note has been written.
