As you know, we have four “cold weather” days that must be made up. One of these days was made up on February 17. To avoid lengthening the school year well into June, we will make up two more days during the month of March.
Following the Board’s decision to not approve the calendar waiver, there will be NO SCHOOL on Monday, March 3, 2014 which is Casimir Pulaski Day.
However, we will have school on Monday, March 17, 2014 and Tuesday, March 18, 2014 which were previously scheduled as non-attendance days.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all await warmer weather!
Dr. Valorie Moore
Superintendent of Schools
Due to the severe weather this winter, students missed several school days. As a result, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) gave all districts affected by the weather an option to postpone the ISAT start and stop dates. District 167 has taken the option to test at a later date. The new testing dates are 3/10/14 to 3/21/14. Please mark your calendars. More information will come home from your child's school and the new testing dates are listed on our district calendar.
Brookwood SD 167 would like to congratulate The 2014 Spelling Bee 1st Place Winner Ronald Thomas (5th grade), and Runner-up Ugochukwu Alozie (6th grade).
