Weather-Related Announcement from District 7

Good afternoon.  This is a weather related announcement from District 7. 

 The current forecast for Friday, January 17th is for a wintery mix to begin around noon.  As of right now, Madison County is forecasted to get a trace amount of snow followed by the potential for a small amount of sleet and freezing rain.   Barring a change in forecast, the plan is for all District 7 schools to be in session on Friday, January 17th.      

 We will continue to monitor the forecast and the conditions throughout the morning.  If roads conditions deteriorate in the afternoon, the possibility exists that the district will enact an early dismissal plan on Friday, January 17th

 The early dismissal plan would involve releasing Edwardsville High School students an hour early at 12:50 PM with buses leaving the school by 1:00 PM.  Middle School early dismissal would be at 2:00 PM with buses leaving by 2:10.  Elementary school buildings would have an early dismissal at 3:00 PM with buses leaving by 3:10 PM.  Under this plan, high school students should arrive home approximately an hour early, middle school students about 45 minutes early, and elementary students about 30 minutes earlier than usual.    Kid Zone will continue to operate under normal hours regardless of early dismissal. 

 Please consider how this early dismissal could affect your students’ arrival time at home and make sure your child is aware of any changes to the normal routine that this could cause. If the district enacts an early dismissal plan, we will communicate via email and an automated call.

District 7 Nurses Organize Help for the Holidays

District 7 students, families, staff, and community members worked together this holiday season to help families in need.  Because of generous donations, the District nurses were able to organize holiday assistance for 170 families this year, allowing for a brighter Christmas for approximately 500 children.  The generosity and support from our district families, staff and community was amazing!

           

In addition to the clothing, toys, and household items provided by a number of donors, the Goshen and Metro-East Rotaries delivered food baskets to a number of District 7 families in need.  See the article from the The Intelligencer below:
