Friday, May 1st is School Lunch Hero Day. Over the past 5 weeks, your school cafeteria staff has been working tirelessly making sure your kiddos get fed in what has been uncharted and scary times for us as parents/guardians. In our area districts, we have provided upwards of 10,000 meals a week safely in a 1 or 2 day prep period. While the stay-at-home order has been in place, these people have put their energy into 3rd gear to make sure that no child has to go without. The passion behind that is miraculous and has been amazing to be a part of! Now you ask, what do we need from you and your kiddos? On May 1st, School Lunch Hero Day, have your student post a video simply saying thank you and maybe what the meals have meant to them. Another option would be to take a photo of your child with a drawn picture/kind words to the cafeteria staff as well. What would be even more cute is if they had some type of "superhero" outfit on in the picture or video! Tag @Aramark in your post! These woman and men deserved all the attention and thank you's possible! Please realize just how powerful there dedication has been through all of this!

We invite the community to drive by our fields on Friday evening during this time to share this experience with us and honor our students.

Good Afternoon Atwood-Hammond Grade School families. Meal distribution will be Monday, April 13 from 9-11 am. If you are picking up meals during that time we will continue to put your updated learning packets in with your meals. When you come to pick up meals please bring your child’s completed work. If you can put it in either a ziplock bag or a walmart bag with your child’s name, grade, and homeroom teacher on the front that would be appreciated! We will make sure it gets to the correct teacher. If you are not picking up meals we ask that you come get your child’s updated learning packets and return completed work anytime from 3-5 pm on Monday, April 13. Again, if you can place your child’s completed work in some sort of bag with their name, grade, and homeroom teacher on the front that would be wonderful. Remember, both procedures will be run as a drive through. We ask that you come into the East parking lot. A staff member will be out there to “check” you in and we will bring materials to your car. In order to practice social distancing we ask that you just open your trunk and we will place materials in the trunk. If we cannot get into your trunk we can place things in the backseat or hand them to you through the window. Please have your child’s completed work in a bag in the trunk or ready to hand through the window as well. This helps ensure that when we deliver the meals and/or updated packets we can retrieve the completed work without making physical contact as well.

Good afternoon everyone. We hope you have had a peaceful Monday so far. First and foremost, a huge shout out and thank you goes to the kitchen staff at each building in the district and the administrative team. The kitchen staff started early preparing and bagging meals and several staff members volunteered to come in and help distribute the meals to our families. We provided 2,560 meals for our families and we couldn’t be more grateful for all that helped! Again, we have no idea if the mandated shut down of schools will continue but rest assured that we are planning and preparing in order to be ready. Please continue to check your social media accounts as well as email for any updates. We are developing a form that we will distribute tomorrow or Wednesday that will be asking you to sign up if you want to receive meals next Monday. When we send this out, please take the time to fill it out as this will help all of us prepare to serve you more effectively. Thank you again for your patience and understanding as we continue to manage these uncertain times together. So proud of all that have reached out with a willingness to assist, a kind word or a simple thank you. You are appreciated and we are so proud of our communities. Stay tuned for continued updates. Have a great evening. Mr. Cheek

The meals will be available for pick up in the bus lanes at each respective school, except Atwood-Hammond Grade School will be at the parent drop off location (near cafeteria/gym). - March 16th pick up - 5 breakfast/lunch meals for each child - March 23rd pick up - 2 breakfast/lunch meals for each child Additional food for families will be available on site during pick up time.

Dear Arthur CUSD #305 Students, Staff, and Families, Good afternoon once again. First, thanks for all your patience and understanding during these trying times. As you may or may not have heard, Governor Pritzker announced the mandate that all schools must close starting Tuesday, March 17th through Monday, March 30th. Monday, March 16th we will hold school but have a 12:00 pm dismissal for the high school and a 12:15 pm dismissal for all three grade schools. This will allow students the opportunity to meet with their teachers, gather their materials as well as have breakfast and lunch. It will also provide the teaching staff and administration time to plan and prepare plans moving forward. Please continue to monitor your social media accounts and check email for additional updates as they become available. Thank you, Mr. Cheek

Dear Arthur CUSD #305 Students, Staff and Families, As information continues to become available and updated related to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) we continue to monitor the situation keeping the safety of students, staff and community at the forefront. As this is a very unusual situation that all communities are trying to navigate and manage, many stakeholders are trying to come together to help determine the next steps. The collaboration with area Superintendents, Regional Offices of Education, Illinois State Board of Education, Regional Departments of Health as well as the Illinois Department of Health will continue as we are monitoring and gathering as much information as possible in order to make the most informed decisions moving forward. On Monday evening of this week the Illinois State Board of Education sent an email to all Superintendents expressing that it is “imperative” that districts work on an e-learning plan in the event that schools need to close for the Coronavirus. E-learning opportunities and developing that plan create many challenges for many districts in the state including available technology, as well as a multi layered approval process that extends beyond our local board of education. In light of the Coronavirus situation, the Illinois State Board of Education is working to waive those approvals requirements and expedite the process, however there isn’t a timeline for doing that. We will continue to monitor, encourage staff, and students to wash hands more frequently and utilize best practices for assisting in maintaining a clean and sanitized learning environment. We will also continue to implement best practices with our custodial staff to maintain and provide the safest environment possible for our staff and students. Also, please know that any decision moving ahead regarding school and or school closure will be made in coordination and guidance of many experts within the public health departments.

100 People Who Care is a fundraising initiative of the District #305 Education Foundation. Knightly Reading is made possible from a grant received from the Foundation. We had a wonderful evening last Thursday, Feb. 20 at La Cascada. Renee Brown, district librarian and her team Jann Harris, Lindsey Herring, Amy Tighe and Carla Poorman, gave a fantastic and informative presentation on Knightly Reading "The Chocolate Touch." Watch this page and the local newspapers for updates and more about this. Next meeting will be Thursday, April 16 (tentative) for our first annual dinner when we will share our new grant recipients and their projects. Dinner will be provided by the District #305 Education Foundation at 6:30 at LaCascada for those who are members of 100 People Who Care and have made and fulfilled their pledge.

*Change in School Calendar* Arthur CUSD #305 has added Monday, March 30, 2020 to its Spring Break schedule. Spring Break will now run from Wednesday, March 25 through Monday, March 30. Students will be back in attendance on Tuesday, March 31. We apologize for this late edit to the school calendar. There was a discrepancy found between the official school calendar and the calendar provided to parents and students via the website. To correct this discrepancy, a non-attendance day had to be added. Again, we apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this may cause.
