District News

As we move into the winter months and the possibility of snow and cold weather increases, here is the 2021-22 inclement weather plan. In the event we have significant inclement weather creating unsafe travel conditions or extreme cold, we will be utilizing our emergency weather day(s) which we have already built into the school calendar. This means that we will not shift to virtual/remote learning in the case of inclement weather for 2021-22.  Please visit the Emergency School Closure/Inclement Weather page of our website

On Monday, November 29, 2021, parents and neighbors were invited to attend a meeting regarding our proposed designs for Field Elementary School. The proposed project involves constructing an updated school that is future-ready and will replace the existing 90-year-old building. A recording of that meeting is now available online here

Two District 205 students were honored with “Yes I Can” awards from the Illinois Council for Exceptional Children (CEC), which recognizes children and youth with exceptionalities who have demonstrated their determination and achievements in multiple ways.

The awards were presented at the recent CEC Convention, held virtually. Paul Rosland, a student at the newly opened District 205 Bridges Transition Center, was nominated because of his leadership skills and advocacy for transition services. He was honored under the Transition category.

Franco Bibbiano, a freshman at York was honored under the School Achievement category and recognized for his industrial technology and woodworking skills.

Howard Fry, an Educational Assistant at Sandburg Middle School, former attorney and a U.S. Navy Veteran, received a touching sendoff from students and colleagues as a tribute to his Honor Flight to Washington D.C. 

Fry took his Honor Flight on Wednesday, October 27, 2021. To honor and thank him for his service, the entire Sandburg community lined the halls, cheering for and giving high-fives to Fry. As a grand finale, the Sandburg Middle School Band and Orchestra played “Anchors Away”. Because of the impact that Fry's Honor Flight had on the school, Sandburg students will raise money to sponsor an individual to go on a future Honor Flight.

First Day in New Transition Center

We are so happy to welcome our Transition Center students to their new home! The building is larger, fully accessible and built specifically with our student needs in mind.

Stay tuned for an official ribbon cutting later this year!
