Good morning! We apologize for the short notice, but we have just learned that we will be without a bus driver this week. As of this morning, Mrs Allison’s riders (bus 11) will be picked up by Mrs Mack on bus 44. This may cause delays for riders on Farmdale, the shuttle, and riders on bus 11 only. We ask that you plan to have your students at their stop at their regular time to help us stay as close to schedule as possible. We appreciate your patience and will update again with any changes regarding the afternoon runs. Thank you
A reminder that the Beverly Manor office will be open from 7:30-11:30 each remote Friday and then front office staff will be working remotely and available via email for any questions or needs. Please view the flyer for contact information. We are excited to start our 3rd quarter on Monday!
Good morning! If you have tried to call Manor today with no luck, it’s because Manor is currently without power and phone lines are down. We will let you know when we are back up and running.

Attention 8th-grade families, Please review the following information as we share the possible options that will be looked at for the 8th grade promotion ceremony. The selected option for the ceremony will be made closer event in May when more timely guidance is available, but will have to be made with enough time to prepare all of the necessary work. This option and further 8th-grade ceremony and transition to the high school will be shared in the coming weeks. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pcO5r_naOxeuWMjowwhIGx7lPlJpD6VHA71TKVxa3FA/edit?usp=sharing Thank you!
Good morning, A few reminders as we prep to return to school: 1. Today and Tomorrow are both Teacher Institute Days (No School for all students). 2. Wed-Fri this week are remote learning days (in-person students were provided packets of work before break and remote learners will continue online as usual) *Packets must be returned on Monday for attendance and grading. 3. Teachers will be available for assistance via email or Dojo during school hours all week. 4. Students will return in-person to start the 3rd quarter on Monday, January 11th. Manor starts at 8:00 and Hensey at 8:30. 5. All students, staff, and visitors are required to wear masks in the building. Please have clean masks available and supplies ready to go! We hope you had a wonderful break and we are excited for the second half of the year.
UPDATE from the IESA Director: We have received an official announcement from the Governor's Office that the state of Illinois remains in Tier 3 mitigations. As a result, all school activities remain "paused" and no practices or interscholastic contests may be held. Boys basketball practice which is scheduled to begin January 4 may not start on that date and I believe it is safe to assume that girls volleyball should be paused as well when it is scheduled to start January 11. Given Illinois continues to remain in Tier 3 mitigations, this news is not totally unexpected. Yet, it is another setback to the safe return of interscholastic activities for IESA member schools. We will no longer establish new season dates for boys basketball and girls volleyball. As we have seen since mid-July, these sports which are considered medium risk and high risk are not going to be allowed to be held until they are moved to low risk and/or Illinois moves into Phase 5 of Restore Illinois. It would be an effort in futility to once again set up arbitrary dates for these sports only to once again be told by the Governor's Office and IDPH that they cannot start on the dates IESA established. Rather than set new dates, which then requires the athletic director to re-schedule contests, find new officials, etc., we will await word from the Governor's Office and IDPH when activities will be allowed to resume. When that word is given, we will then convene a meeting of the IESA Board of Directors to decide our plan moving forward and immediately notify the IESA membership of the new schedule.

Parent and Staff Update - December 14, 2020 Dear Parents and Staff, We are writing to inform you that Wednesday, January 6th, and Thursday, January 7th will be Remote Learning Days for all students. Due to the rise in COVID-19 positive cases in Washington, reopening our school buildings on Monday, January 11th will provide additional time between New Year's Eve / New Year's Day activities for potential COVID-19 exposures to run their course. In order to keep our schools open, however, we ask everyone to please take every precaution during the holidays to limit their exposure to COVID-19. Details below are provided for your reference. 1. Wednesday through Friday (January 6th through 8th) are now scheduled as Remote Learning Days for all students. 2. Learning packets will be sent home this week with in-person students to complete January 6th, 7th, and 8th and must be completed and turned in upon returning to school in order for attendance to be counted on those dates. 3. Our remote learners will continue learning as they have previously this school year. 4. Food Services will contact families regarding availability and distribution of Remote Meals on January 6th through 8th. 5. Latch Key will operate full days January 6th through 8th and our Latch Key Coordinator will be contacting participating families regarding this change. 6. Our schools will reopen for in-person learning on Monday, January 11th. 7. An updated school calendar is attached, in addition to this letter, for your reference. Parents and staff should continue to treat this time during the pandemic as a prolonged severe weather event, in which school could be cancelled at any time and with little notice related to COVID-19 exposures. Sincerely, Chad Allaman, Superintendent
Stay in the know with Skyward notifications! All District 50 families with Skyward access can set up personal notifications for attendance, discipline, food balances, and often the biggest area of interest, Grading! Sometimes we know logging into Skyward can be a task that is forgotten, however, you have the power to have alerts like: Low Score/High Score, Missing Assignments, Low/High Overall Grades, and more sent directly to your email once they are posted. If your family has achievement goals of maintaining grades above 80 percent, then set your goal and be instantly notified when it drops. To access these Skyward options, view the directions here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1HqlrXxx1Km4K2YGhENbpVhxfz1YczUPi/view?usp=sharing
