WELCOME BACK!!! We are so happy to have the children back in the building. Remember we will be dismissing at 2pm each day through Labor Day due to the heat and humidity in the classrooms.
Changes in Religious Exemption Requirements for immunizations: The State of Illinois has created a new process for obtaining a Certificate of Religious Exemption regarding student immunizations. Please check our website under the download tab to see a copy of that new requirement. This must be done by October 16, 2015 if you intend to file. This includes our district. Therefore, if you formerly were exempt, you will now have to provide this proof before October 16th of this year.
Make plans to attend Open House Night! Our family night for the school will be Thursday September 3rd beginning at 6:00pm. We hope to see all of our families there. Parking may be difficult, so please be aware you may need to park East of the crosswalk and have some walking. If you require a handicapped spot, we have 2 available. If you require assistance, please contact our office at 815-249-6225 and we will help you. We are excited to meet all the new parents, and look forward to sharing with you the great things happening this year with our school and community.
