Erin’s Law

In September you received a letter letting you know that we will once again implement a child sexual abuse prevention program, which is the result of the passage of Public Act 097-1147, also known as Erin’s Law. Our social worker, Mr. Scheid, and our school psychologist, Mrs. Gancer will teach one age-appropriate lesson in each classroom along with the classroom teacher during the month of October.  Below you will find a link to the original letter.  As always, please don’t hesitate to contact Mrs. Gurga if you have questions.

Halloween Guidelines


Halloween 2018

The PTA will host Halloween parties in each classroom on Wednesday, October 31. Students should bring a costume to school that they can change into after lunch. We will have a costume parade starting at 1:00PM. Parties will end at 2:15PM, and students will be released at 2:30PM (early release Wednesday.) Costumes may not include anything scary, gory, violent or include weapons or weapon look-a-likes. Please see the letter for Halloween more extensive guidelines. Also, do not send food or drinks to share as all of our parties are food-free. We’re looking forward to a fun-filled afternoon!
