Effective use of instructional technology is emphasized throughout the district. Students come to school eager to learn and demonstrate fine academic achievement. Frankfort School District 157-C has long been recognized as one of the outstanding districts in the state. It has received distinction as a "Blue Ribbon School” in the State of Illinois.

Lifetouch SmileSafe Kids Program

In our continuing commitment to support the safety of our community, our school is pleased to participate in the SmileSafe Kids™ program, a child safety program developed in partnership by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) and Lifetouch National School Studios.

This program will provide the families of every student photographed on school Picture Day with a pair of Safety ID Cards free of charge.

According to the Department of Justice, nearly 800,000 children are reported missing each year. While most missing children are found within a few hours, we know that any time apart from your child can be a stressful and terrifying experience. The SmileSafe Kids™ program is designed to help your family stay safer and prepare you to respond quickly if your child is missing.

Your child must be present on Picture Day to receive the complimentary safety cards.

At our school, the health and well-being of your child are top priorities. We’re proud to be a partner in the SmileSafe Kids™ program, one of the nation’s largest child safety initiatives.

Student Insurance

We are again offering student insurance through Markel Insurance Company. This insurance is offered as an additional/supplemental benefit for our families, but is not required by the School District or associated with the District’s Insurance Program. (It is separate, optional coverage for students). If you are interested in additional insurance coverage for your child, please click on the Student Accident Insurance Brochure link below for more details.
