IAR (Illinois Assessment of Readiness)
Each spring, students in District 54 take federally mandated assessments (IAR) designed to help school districts understand how our students are growing academically. This year, the English Language Arts and Math Assessment for grades 3-8 will be given at school over three days between April 5th and April 23rd. The classroom teachers will communicate the specific days your child will be testing. Remote learners are not required to test, however, if you would like to bring your child into school for testing please reach out to our office 847-357-5955. Remote learners will be provided with alternate lessons during the three testing days. Thank you in advance for your flexibility and support as we complete these assessments.

District 54 Information
Revised Protocols for Schools
Last night during the District 54 Board of Education meeting, revised protocols for schools were discussed. Many of you are aware of the recent changes to both ISBE and IDPH guidelines that result in changes to the school setting. Due to some of these changes, we are happy to begin welcoming back more students to In Person Learning. If you child is currently a Remote Learner and are interested in changing their status to In Person Learning, please email Mrs. Stochl directly at [email protected] to request a change.
The changes we’d like to highlight include the shift from 6ft social distance, to 3-6ft social distance, which enables us to include more students in the classrooms. We will no longer be taking temperature checks upon entry and a few symptoms have been removed from the quarantine list. We will continue to have all staff and students complete our digital screener prior to entering the building each day. Families, please have this completed by 8:30am.
You can access a recording of the meeting last night by clicking here. We will also be sending a welcome back letter after spring break highlighting changes to the In Person Learning experience.
Registration for 2021-2022 School Year
Registration for the 2021-2022 school year will open on Monday, March 29 through the Infinite Campus Portal. Please login to review the current information and make any necessary changes. If you do not have a portal account, you should have received an email on March 13 inviting you to create one.
As a reminder, all families are required to prove that they live within District 54 boundaries every year. If we are unable to verify your residency electronically, you will receive a letter by U.S. mail, which will list the residency documents you can provide to the school office to complete your registration.
You are also able to pay the $50 consumable fee for 2021-2022, as well as purchase milk and sign up for the instructional device insurance through the portal. If you believe you will qualify for the Free Lunch Program in the 2021-2022 school year, and therefore will receive a fee waiver, do not pay the consumable material fee now. Applications will be available in August for the Free Lunch Program.
Information about busing will be mailed the first week in June. Should you have any questions, please our office. Thank you for your cooperation.
Have a WONDERful Spring Break!
