With snow in the forecast, now is the time to remind yourself of the various ways District 205 announces school closings and late start openings resulting from inclement weather. (And it’s also the time to think about childcare plans.) A late start or school closing announcement is made by 5:45 AM via the following channels:
• Information is first posted on the District's website at www.elmhurst205.org
• Talk205 phone calls, e-mail and SMS messages are sent out.
• A message is recorded on the District 205 Center’s main telephone line at (630) 834-4530.
• Notification is sent to the Emergency Closing Center, which broadcasts such information on WGN-AM (720), WBBM-AM (780), and CBS-TV (2), NBC-TV (5), ABC-TV (7), WGN-TV (9), FOX-TV, and CLTV cable. Visit the .web site at http://www.emergencyclosingcenter.com

Certified staff and administrators will be using this time to collaboratively review student data, discuss professional growth topics, problem solve, share best practices and continue the work of building a Professional Learning Community.
The Student Late Arrival instructional schedule for 2016-17 will be as follows:
AM Early Childhood – 9:45 AM to 11:55 AM

As mandated by Illinois State law, annual vision and hearing screening will be conducted at Edison School on Thursday, December 1, 2016. All kindergarten and second graders will have their vision tested. And all kindergarten, first, second and third graders will have their hearing tested. We will also be screening all special education students, transfer students and teacher referrals.
Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye exam by an eye doctor. Your student is not require to undergo this vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report form indicating that an exam has been administered within the previous 12 months and that evaluation is on file at the school. If a vision exam report is not on file at Edison, your student in the mandated group, will be tested. If your student wears glasses, please have them bring their glasses to school on testing day.
Any student that does not pass the initial vision and/or hearing screening is automatically rescreened two weeks later. If the student does not pass the rescreen, parents/guardians will be notified by mail.
Any questions please give me a call.
