Winter Car Drop-Off & Pick-Up Location Change and Request

Winter Car Drop-Off & Pick-Up Location Change and Request

With the arrival of cold weather, we must change our bus pick location back to Colfax. Bus drop-off will still happen on McDaniel. If you are driving to or from school, this means that:

  • In the morning, feel free to pull up to drop off your child in the morning on Colfax or in the parking lot "Kiss & Go." Please DO NOT pull up or park on McDaniel.
  • In the afternoon, feel free to pull up to pick up your child on McDaniel. Please DO NOT pull up or park on Colfax.

Thanks in advance for your flexibility in accommodating our buses and the awesome bus drivers who work hard to keep students safe and keep their buses running on time! 

 

WINTER OUTDOOR PLAY GUIDELINES & GEAR 

In general, in deciding whether it is safe to play outside at recess, we follow the Illinois Child Care Weather Watch and go outside when the wind chill is 20 or above.

With these guidelines, we want to make sure that our students have all the winter gear they need to play outside during recess! This includes:

  • A warm coat
  • Snowpants
  • Gloves or mittens
  • A scarf or neck gaiter 
  • A hat
  • Snow boots

If any of these items are not affordable for your family, we can help. If your student needs winter gear, please reach out to your classroom teacher or Social Worker Anne Wildman (wildmana@district65.net).

In addition, if you have new or gently used winter gear in sizes Children's 5 through Adult M that you would like to donate, please bring items to the front office.
