It is hard to believe that we are already in third trimester! We feel strongly that the last trimester of school is as important as the first weeks of school. Our staff will continue to require quality work, assignments, and projects needed to be completed on time. Our expectations include that every student gives a 100% effort in each and every class. We are also expecting student behavior to remain positive.
Any student who accumulates six disciplinary detentions or who receives a school suspension during the third trimester could be excluded from some of the end of the year events.
Board policy states, “In order for eighth (8th) grade students to participate in the Graduation Ceremony, all academic assignments must be completed by the student.”
District 54 schools will be closed on Tuesday, March 15, due to the primary election. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority in District 54. On most days our doors are locked; visitors must ring the doorbell and be admitted by staff; and then visitors must proceed to the office first to sign in. However, on election days, 24 of our 28 school sites serve as polling places and therefore the doors must be kept open. State law requires schools to serve as polling locations if asked and in Cook County about one-third of the polling places are in schools. In years with a presidential election, higher numbers than usual are expected to vote. Therefore, in order to put safety first, District 54 students and staff will not attend school on March 15.
