Community Engagement Opportunity

Dear District 7 Stakeholder

District 7 is in the process of preparing a Strategic Plan.  This plan will document goals for the District and timelines for accomplishing these goals.  One area of emphasis is Community Engagement. As a follow up to the survey we sent out last month, a community engagement forum is being planned for Thursday, February 27th from 6:30-8 PM. This event will consist of members of the District 7 community providing feedback to school board members and administrators for use in shaping the plan.

The format for the Community Engagement forum will be round table, small group discussions regarding key topics.  We have room for a limited number of participants and would like to have a diverse group to represent the communities that comprise District 7. If you would like to participate you must complete and submit the information in the attached link. For those unable to attend on February 27th, or those who would prefer to provide written feedback, select “in writing” on question #2 of the attached link and you will receive questions to be submitted electronically.   Everyone who wants to be a part of this process will be able to provide feedback either in person or in written form.   If you are interested in providing feedback, please complete the form below by Wednesday, February 19th.  Additional information will be sent to those that complete the form, including the questions that we will be discussing and the location for those that will be attending.

Thank you for your interest in helping District 7 plan for the future.  Your input is appreciated.

Respectfully,

Jason Henderson

Superintendent

Edwardsville CUSD7

Weather Related Early Dismissal – Wednesday, February 5, 2020

This is a weather related announcement for Edwardsville District 7.  Due to the possibility of deteriorating road conditions this afternoon, District 7 will enact the early dismissal plan outlined below.  All after school and evening activities for today are cancelled.

Edwardsville High School students will be dismissed an hour early at 12:50 PM with buses leaving the school by 1:00 PM.  Liberty and Lincoln Middle School early dismissal will be at 2:00 PM with buses leaving by 2:10.  All elementary school buildings will dismiss 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.

 

Weather Related Announcement from District 7

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

The current forecast for Wednesday, February 5th is for snow to begin in the late morning.  As of right now, the Edwardsville area is forecasted to have 1-2 inches of snow/sleet through the evening on Wednesday.

We will continue to monitor the forecast throughout this evening and tomorrow morning. In the event that school is cancelled, every effort will be made to cancel this evening.  However, please understand that changes in the forecast could cause an early morning cancellation as well.

Once students are in session tomorrow, if road conditions begin to deteriorate by early afternoon, the possibility exists that the district will enact an early dismissal plan on Wednesday, February 5th.

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 would continue to operate 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.
