First Day Photos: We would love to collect "First Day of School" photos of our students to celebrate the first day of school. If you are willing, please email email@example.com a first-day photo of your student(s). Please note that any photo shared will be included in a slideshow that will be shared on social media, our district website, and email.
Third Party Food Deliveries: The Board of Education supported the implementation of a new procedure for the 2023-2024 school year prohibiting student lunch deliveries by third-party vendors and outside providers in the interest of the safety of our schools. Parents can still drop off lunches from outside vendors; however, we will no longer permit outside vendor lunches to be delivered directly to students.
Heat Warnings: Just a reminder that all schools in District 128 have air conditioning, but the school buses do not. Please have your student(s) bring water with them or consider driving your student(s) to school if you have concerns with the heat.
Ice Cream Social Reschedule: Due to excessive heat warnings, the ice cream social is rescheduled to August 31 from 5 - 6 PM at Chippewa's new playground.

Due to the predicted snow and hazardous conditions, all schools in District 128 will have an early dismissal at 12:30 PM tomorrow, Friday, March 3. Afternoon Preschool classes and all after-school activities will be canceled for tomorrow, Friday, March 3. Our top priority is the safety of our students and staff, and we have been monitoring the weather closely. Based on the latest forecast, it is in the best interest of everyone to release students and staff early. PowerPlay staff will be available to supervise those students at dismissal. Additionally, all bus transportation services will be provided for students on their scheduled routes, and students will have lunch before dismissal. We urge parents and guardians to make necessary arrangements for the early dismissal of their children. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your school's main office. We will continue to monitor the weather conditions and contact you if any changes occur. Please continue to have plans in place if there is a need to switch to an e-learning day. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
