Focus 205’s Community Engagement Session #6, which was originally scheduled for Monday, December 5, will be rescheduled to Wednesday, February 1, 2017. The Focus 205 Facilitating Team recently made the decision to reschedule because, not only is it a busy holiday season, District 205 has yet to receive the results of our recent Thoughtexchange survey, which will be an important factor in shaping the next meeting’s presentation. Please visit www.focus205.org for complete information regarding the Focus 205 process.
In conjunction with Chris Herren's visit, the Elmhurst Police Department will be holding a special Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, December 3 from 9 AM to 1 PM outside of the Elmhurst Police Station, 125 E. First Street. One thing parents can do to safeguard their children is to clean out their medicine cabinet and get rid of pain pills left over from previous surgeries or injuries. The opioid oxycodone is found in a number of prescription drugs and can be highly addictive. Abuse of this drug produces a euphoric high similar to that of heroin.
In October, the Centers for Disease and Control Prevention announced that at least half of all opioid overdose deaths involve prescription painkillers.
The newly created Aidan Shea Foundation is hosting its inaugural event, a "Greek God Gala," on December 3 at the Wilder Mansion. All in the Jackson and Elmhurst community are invited to attend. The event features a kids drop off party, which runs from 7-9, and an adult party which runs from 7-11. The event is Greek God themed because of Aidan's love of mythology; costumes are encouraged! The Foundation was formed to celebrate and honor the life of Aidan, who was a vibrant member of our Jackson school community. Proceeds will benefit Lurie Children’s Hospital Foundation & the Jackson School Future Ready Library Project. To purchase tickets to the event or make a donation to the foundation, go to http://www.eventbee.com/v/aidansheafoundation/event?eid=138442312.

Parents or guardians are expected to schedule vacations during the summer or on school holidays. In instances where absences are requested for vacation, parents and guardians must submit a written request to the principal two weeks in advance. The absence will be considered unexcused if this procedure is not followed. Students approved for a vacation will be expected to complete missing class work after returning. Students will be given one day for each day missed to make up work. Teachers will not provide class work or assignments in advance.
