District 125 Families,
You have likely just heard the governor's announcement to close Illinois schools for the remainder of the school year. We realize that this may bring about feelings of worry, sadness, and frustration for you and your children. This is certainly not the news we had hoped for, but we support the decision to prioritize the health and safety of our school community. Atwood Heights School District 125 will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.
We want to assure you that e-Learning will continue for the remainder of the school year. Remote learning has been a new and challenging experience and we sincerely thank you for your partnership during this time of great uncertainty. However, we would like to stress that your child’s well-being is our first priority. Should you be in need of additional resources or emotional support please contact your building principals.
As a reminder, we have lunch boxes available for pickup on Tuesdays between 8:30am - 10:30am (Meadow Lane) and 12:30pm - 4:00pm (Lawn Manor) for the families that have signed up.
