In order to play in the snow, STUDENTS MUST WEAR SNOW PANTS, BOOTS, COATS, HATS and GLOVES. These items should be marked with the student’s name for easy identification.
Across the school district, our students have outdoor recess until the air temperature or wind chill is below zero degrees Fahrenheit. We monitor the temperature through a Weather Bug station that is located at Central School. You may access this data by clicking the Weather Bug icon at the bottom righthand side of our web page. If you have any questions, please call the office at 847-835-6400.

ART IN PROGRESS
Over the next couple of months, you will notice that the front hallway of South School will be receiving a face lift! Mrs. Angie Wilson and Ms. Sarah Forsythe will be working with our 2nd grade students to create a hallway mural. In doing so, our students will not only brighten our hallways, they will work as a team to leave a small legacy here at South School.
This project will allow our students and staff to collaborate and create a timeless work of art. Painting has begun and will be completed this winter. Please excuse our mess in the meantime, we are busy creating art from our hearts.
