Good Morning LP,
The students were quite busy this week! Between students taking middle and end of unit assessments, performing science labs and math tasks or even our Middle Level’s Constitution Fashion show, everyone was highly engaged in meaningful work!
This week’s newsletter includes school, PTSA and district information, as well as dates yo help you plan the week ahead. LP Press September 26 2014
In our school environment our first priority is to ensure our students are safe when they are with us. This week our students and staff have gotten use to a new system to ensure we are as safe and secure as can be. All classroom doors are locked and remained closed throughout the school day. This measure has tightened up our building so that teachers can maintain a secure environment all day. Additionally, you should receive a letter early next week explaining the procedures that take place when we relocate the students and staff during an emergency. Please do not hesitate to connect with me if you have any questions.
Erin’s Law Lessons
All classrooms will once again be providing a lesson in response to Erin’s law. Like last year, children’s literature and age appropriate questions will guide our teachers and staff through the presentation of this lesson. Parents will be notified of the lesson date by their child’s teacher prior to the lesson taking place.
District 54 Executive Director of Special Education, Cassandra Williams, will discuss the District 54 sexual abuse prevention curriculum during a Schaumburg Parent University parents-only presentation from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 30th. During this presentation, parents will learn about the lessons that District 54 adopted in response to Erin’s Law, which requires child sexual abuse education in school for all children. If you are interested in attending, please see the attached flyer. Childcare will be available. For more information about Schaumburg Parent University and to register, visit our website at http://sd54.org/spu.
Superintendent’s Article on Senate Bill 16 – District 54 would lose $12.5 million
Several times throughout the school year, District 54 Superintendent Andy DuRoss writes an article which appears in the Daily Herald, on the District 54 website and in the emails that principals send to their parent community. This month, Superintendent DuRoss wrote about Senate Bill 16. If the Illinois General Assembly were to approve this bill, District 54 would lose $12.5 million, or about $1,000 per student. This would greatly impact our ability to provide a quality education to our students. Click here to read the article for more information.
Have a nice weekend,
