5Essentials Survey

  PLEASE HELP!

We still need more parental participation in order to receive survey results.   The Illinois State Board of Education is conducting a survey of learning conditions called the Illinois 5Essentials Survey.  This is a tool, developed by researchers at the University of Chicago, providing schools with data on five leading indicators for school improvement: Effective Leaders, Collaborative Teachers, Involved Families, Supportive Environment and Ambitious Instruction.

Please click on the link below to take the survey which is estimated to take approximately 5 minutes.    We need to have a minimum of 20% of our parents participating  by March 13th  in order to receive results, so please help us access feedback by participating.  https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/

Sincerely,
Jamie Reilly, Ed. D.Superintendent

GUIDELINES FOR SCHOOL CLOSINGS IN INCLEMENT WEATHER

Dear Parents,

1) If area superintendents are scheduling a conference call to discuss school opening, I will let you know of that, and inform you immediately once a decision has been made.
2)  If there are a variety of opinions regarding the weather and a decision won't be determined until the morning, I will try to notify you by 6:00 AM and no later than 6:30 AM.
3) If there are days where we unexpectedly wake up to excessive snow, ice, cold, or other inclement weather conditions, I will, again, do my best to contact you as close to 6:00 AM as possible.
4) Any time you feel the weather conditions are unsafe for your child to travel to school, please keep him/her at home, notify the school office, and it will be an excused absence.

  Please remember that I always welcome your emails (jreilly@maercker.org), and phone calls (630)515-4842(w) or (630) 248-7783(c), so feel free to contact me at any time.

  Jamie Reilly, Ed. D.,  Superintendent
