Principal’s Message – January 12, 2018

Happy Friday! It has been a great week at Hoover. The students all returned to school rested and ready to learn.
Here are some important dates to remember:
- Jan. 15 – No School

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.
Dress For the Weather
Please send your child to school each day with warm winter gear, including a winter jacket, hat, and gloves. When there is snow on the ground, only students with snow pants and boots are permitted to play in the snow. Students continue to go outside for recess during the winter season. Recess will be indoors only if the temperature is zero or below with the wind chill.
5Essentials Parent Survey
All District 54 parents are encouraged to take the Illinois State Board of Education’s 5Essentials Survey by Jan. 31 at https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois. The parent survey is only 26 questions will allow parents to share their thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness and help us guide school improvement.
