Our next student late arrival day is Wednesday, December 14th.  This school year is structured a little different from last year as far as our student late arrival days.  These are important opportunities for built-in professional development time for our staff.  These will work as follows:

  • Once per month on various Wednesdays, school will start later than normal.  On these days, the bell to start school will ring at 9:45 am.  In most cases, students should start arriving to Jackson for morning line-up at 9:30 am.  For families who need to maintain the same schedule for student late arrival days this year, supervision will be made available at 9:10 am.  Transportation is not provided at this earlier time.
  • Kindergarten will have a modified schedule on these days, with AM kindergarten from 9:45 am to 11:55 am and PM kindergarten from 12:55 pm to 3:00 pm.
  • Before school care will be provided by the Elmhurst Park District on these scheduled District 205 Student Late Arrival Days for Rec Station participants who are registered for Wednesday morning Rec Station.  For more information about the Rec Station program, please call the Park District's Program Manager at 630-993-8678.

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.

Many thanks to the 1,321 participants who assigned over 118,123 stars in the Thoughtexchange survey's second Star step. There were 615 participants who shared 2,417 thoughts in the first Share step. In total, nearly 1,600 participants shared thoughts, assigned stars or did both – a fantastic result!


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.

Disposal of unused or expired prescription medication is best accomplished by drop-off at an authorized facility, which keeps these drugs out of the City water system and household garbage - as well as out of the hands of kids.

The Elmhurst Police Department has a prescription drug drop-off box in its main lobby, which is accessible 24/7. The box is strictly self-service: no information or identification is required. This simple step prevents accidental poisoning or overdose of family members. For more information, call 
630-530-3050 or visit www.elmhurst.org.


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.  For more information, email info@aidansheafoundation.org.


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.
