Emerson News

The start of the school year has been stressful for many families as parents struggle to balance work with remote and hybrid learning. Staff at the Elmhurst Park District and Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 have been working behind the scenes for weeks to come up with the best solution to help as many families as possible during this tough transition. 

Club Ed. is a new program for children K-5 that will offer a convenient, self-directed E-Learning opportunity at various D205 and Park District locations. This program will provide a structured schedule that alternates designated time for self-directed E-Learning and recreational activities including indoor/outdoor games, arts and crafts. Children will be in a group of 15 participants or less in a format that meets all CDC health and safety guidelines. Face coverings will be required at all times except while eating.

Since sending the survey July 17, people have reached out with requests for additional information to help them determine the best decision for their children. Therefore, we are including two additional pieces of information in this communication, which we hope will be helpful and have extended the deadline for responding to July 31 at 5 p.m. All responses will be considered final at that time, and you will receive an email from D205 confirming your submission after the results have been reviewed.

TruGreen will treat the lawns and athletic fields throughout Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 starting July 28, 2020.

Sign up for Daily Self-Certification Reminder

Daily Self-Certification Reminder

As we begin to phase students back to in-person learning, a daily health self-certification form will need to be completed for every student before they enter any building. The form can be accessed here. If you would like a daily text message reminder to fill out the self-certification form, text YES to 67587 to enroll in text message notifications.

An email will also be sent daily to the parents/guardians of any students attending in person. Your username is your student’s 5-digit PowerSchool ID (ex: 12345) and the password is your student's date of birth in mmddyyyy format (ex: 01011975). Please answer each of the three health questions honestly, and hit submit. Thank you for helping to keep our school community safe!  .

Thank you!
