Update On Gathering Student Items (3/17/2020)

Hello Joliet Students, Parents and Guardians,
On Wednesday, March 18th, 2020, we will allow a few students at a time into the building from 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM to come collect their belongings. K-12 students will need to collect all their desk contents, locker items, locker room belongings, band music and instruments, gym shoes, etc. Every item will need to be collected for two reasons:

  • - We are preparing for a Distance Learning model. Starting Monday, March 23rd, teachers will be reaching out to students to initiate contact and give further instruction.
  • - All personal belongings need to be sanitized before they re-enter the building. Coats need to be laundered, items washed, other materials sanitized, etc.

  • If you cannot make it to the school on Wednesday, March 18th, your student’s belongings will be bagged and labeled for other arrangements later in the week. We will be disseminating more information later in the week.

    Special Board Meeting (3/16/2020)
