It has been a fun week for staff and students as we participated in Field Day this week and in our ABC countdown. Thank you, Mr. Pappas, for creating many fun and engaging activities for our first ever, Virtual Field Day!

As we wrap up teacher appreciation week, we would like to thank all of our teachers for their positivity, hard work, dedication, and kindness.  We could not ask for a better group of people to support our students each day.  Thank you, teachers, for making Dooley such a special place to work and learn.

We wish all of our moms, grandmas, and aunts a very happy Mother’s Day weekend!

Non-Attendance Days for V-Learning

The following dates will be used as teacher planning days and there will be no virtual lessons pushed out to all students:

  • Monday, May 11th
  • Monday, May 18th

Fourth Grade Students and Parents – Band and Orchestra Enrollment Information

As many of you know, students traditionally enroll in the District 54 Instrumental Music Program in the spring of fourth grade and begin lessons in fifth grade. Due to our unique circumstances in the spring of 2020, instrumental music enrollment will be held once school resumes in the fall. In the meantime, we encourage fourth grade students and their parents to visit the District 54 website (https://sd54.org/resources/instrumental-music-enrollment-spring2020) to view information about band and orchestra enrollment so that they are prepared to choose an instrument and join the fun!

District 54 Summer Camps Cancelled

Due to this unprecedented time we are faced with, all District 54 Summer Camps have been cancelled for this year. These camps include, Summer STEM, 54 Fitness League, Camp Creative, Language and Culture Camp, and Summer Instrumental Music. If you have submitted a payment for any camp, you will be issued a refund starting Thursday, April 30, and you should see a credit appear on your statement within 14 business days.

The camp facilitators are going to miss seeing students this summer. Students in all grade levels can stay engaged by participating in the School District 54 Summer Virtual Learning University, which is filled with fun activities and challenges for students and families to participate in together from home. The link for the Virtual Learning University will be on the School District 54 website in the last week of May.

Refund of Fees to D54 Families

Due to the move to remote learning in March, District 54 will be prorating prepaid fees (i.e. milk, field trips, pizza fundraisers, etc.) based on actual goods or services received. The amounts that have been paid by families for goods or services that have not been received have been credited to their student’s account on the District 54 Portal. Each item credited is identified separately for tracking purposes.  The consumable materials fee will not be prorated, as this fee is used immediately for student workbooks and other consumables. 

For those that paid for transportation, that fee reimbursement is being handled separately from this process. In addition, payments made to the PTA are being handled by the school PTA.

If your child is an eighth-grade student, the credit has been applied to a sibling’s account. Checks will be mailed before May 22 to families whose youngest child is graduating from District 54 this spring and to families who are moving out of District 54.

If you are experiencing a financial hardship and need these fees refunded by check, or if you have any other questions, please contact your school secretary.
