Dear District 157-C Families,

We hope that your family enjoyed a very happy Thanksgiving! When we think about all of the things we are thankful for in our district, our parents and the partnership we share with them on behalf of the children is at the top of the list! We saw this partnership in action during our recent American Education Week visitations and parent-teacher conferences, both of which showed strong participation by our school families.

We continue to be very proud of our students and their efforts to “pay it forward.” Following the honoring of veterans at the Veterans Day programs at all schools, our students and staff are now making the holidays brighter for others through their support of local charitable causes. The children are learning that their own holidays are more meaningful because they are helping others. Please watch for more information through our schools and thank you for continuing to support these efforts.

As we head into December, just a reminder of our practices for closing school due to inclement weather. In collaboration with the Village of Frankfort, Lincoln-Way High School and our Transportation Department, we monitor the conditions closely to determine the need to close school. If the roads are impassable and/or the buses are not operable, the 157-C schools will be closed. If the roads are safe for driving, the corners are safe for students to wait for buses and the buses are running, our schools will be open. In the event we do need to close the schools, you will be alerted via our parent notification system.

If you have made changes to any of the information we have on file regarding your contact information, please let the school office know so that we can update the information. Parents who have not opted into our free system to be notified of any important messages from the school and/or district by text still have an opportunity to do so. Just text the word “Yes” to 67587 from one of your cell phones that you used at registration.

As we head into the busy holiday season and the New Year, we wish your family all the best. We look forward to continuing our work with you on behalf of the students.

Dr. Maura J. Zinni
Superintendent of Schools
