NOTE: Illinois law requires you to call the school office by 9 am, when your child will not be in attendance.
Pick up and drop off of students can be a smooth process if we follow the following procedures:
- Do not drive down Erie Street. Parents must park on Mary and walk to the outside of the fence to drop off or wait for their child, or drive down Cleveland to Barton Street, up the hill to Erie and back to the alley. No vehicles are allowed to pull up on the playground during drop off or pick up.
- At the end of the day, as you come up the Barton Hill, please pull along the south side of Erie Street to the alley. Do not pull into the alley until directed by a staff member. Do not pull onto Erie Street if you will be blocking the road. Our neighbors need to get in and out of their homes too, so please keep room for them to pass.
CHANGE TO CELL PHONE USE IN SCHOOL SPEED ZONES
TEXTING IS ILLEGAL WHILE DRIVING ANYWHERE
Public Act 96-0131 went into effect January 1, 2010. The law prohibits any driver, regardless of age, from using a cell phone while operating a motor vehicle on a roadway in a school speed zone or construction zone. Exceptions include using a phone in voice- activated mode, emergency use, use by construction workers engaged in highway construction or maintenance, and law enforcement personnel or emergency vehicle operators performing official duties.
Public Act 96-0130, also effective January 1, 2010, and makes it illegal to operate a motor vehicle anywhere while using an electronic communication device to compose, send or read text messages, instant messages, and e-mail on a cell phone or use the internet. Personal digital assistants and portable or mobile computers are also banned.
According to Secretary of State Jesse White, distracted driving has become a serious problem in both our nation and our state. These laws are a part of an effort to reduce the tragic consequences of distracted driving.
