Keller Junior High Sixth Grade Parent Night
We are excited for our sixth grade students to become part of the Keller family. This informational night is a great opportunity to get questions answered and find out some useful tips for a smooth transition into Keller Jr. High. This event will take place on Wednesday, December 6 from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Our partnership is important for the success of your child. We look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you may have about Keller and about the transition to junior high.
District 54 Cold Weather Response Plan
In order to help parents better prepare for the severe cold weather and snow we often get during winters in our community, I wanted to share with you the District 54 Severe Cold Weather Response Plan. Though District 54 makes every effort to keep our schools open and operational, circumstances beyond our control oftentimes dictate school closings.
