School Supplies 2020-2021
We know it's hard to think about school supply shopping, especially right now. With that in mind, the Hawthorne PTA is excited to announce a new partnership with 1st Day School Supplies for the 2020-2021 school year. After careful consideration we believe that 1st Day will be a great fit for Hawthorne parents. 1st Day offers guaranteed competitive prices on the highest quality brands (including the germ fighting brands like Purell and Clorox!) using an easy, hassle free website AND for the first time, we are excited to move to home delivery!
With uncertainty on how this summer will look, now is the perfect time to check school supply shopping off your list. You can make your purchase right now by clicking the link here.The link will be open through July 1, 2020. If you have any questions please reach out to Carrington Abernethy or Dena Fasheh.
School Supplies 2020-2021
This afternoon, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker issued a statement in which he suspended in-person learning for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. At the April 28th Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 Board of Education meeting, the administration will present the board of education with options to consider for how District 205 moves forward with upcoming events such as graduation and summer school.
D205 has been in regular communication with government and health officials. This afternoon, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker announced a decision to extend statewide school closures and the “Stay at Home” order until April 30, 2020.
The extension follows updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and an announcement from the White House extending physical distancing guidelines until April 30, 2020.
D205 Superintendent Dr. David Moyer is examining the decision and will share how this impacts district-wide plans beyond our current closure as soon as possible.
In response to the the COVID-19 outbreak, the D205 Foundation has launched a Community Impact Fund. With your philanthropic support, this fund will allow the Foundation to rapidly deploy flexible resources to Elmhurst schools and community based organizations who are at the front lines of the COVID-19 outbreak.
To assist students and families while schools are closed, the D205 Food Services Department is offering meal pick-up services during the closure period. Open this story for pickup days and times.
You may view this message in video form here. I would like to begin by thanking all of our families and employees for their patience and cooperation as we launched E-Learning in District 205 yesterday.
This afternoon, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker extended the closure of schools across the state through the end of the month of April. This was not unexpected, and the District has been busy planning to transition from Act of God Days to extended Remote Learning Days. We will elicit feedback and learn from our first several days of implementation and will continue to work to improve our service to you.
