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.

Schools closed for rest of school year

Dear District 54 Community,

Good afternoon District 54 families. As you have probably heard, Governor Pritzker has announced that schools will remain closed for the rest of this school year.

Let me acknowledge that this is not ideal. The ideal situation would be having children at school connecting in person with their peers, their teachers and other staff. I think we can all acknowledge that.

While we were really hoping we would be able to bring students back to school this year, we were also anticipating this announcement and planning for it. We are committed to helping students to grow academically and supporting their well-being. We will continue to offer remote learning as we have for the past four weeks.

I know with the governor’s announcement you have questions. You are probably wondering about eighth-grade graduations and other important end-of-the-year celebrations. We are currently working on plans to commemorate these moments.

Some of you may have items in the schools that you need to retrieve. We have a plan to safely provide you access to the schools and we will share those specifics with you soon.

To our students – we miss you. Thank you for staying connected to your teachers and each other through virtual learning. We are going to keep teaching you and caring about you. We are still here for you.

To the families of our students – thank you. We know you didn’t plan to spend the last two months of the school year helping your children with school work at home. Your support for your children, our teachers and each other has been amazing. You are an integral part of what we do.

While our school doors are closed, we are committed to doing whatever it takes to support our students this year. If there is anything we can do to support you, please reach out to your child’s teacher, social worker or any other trusted adult. I look forward to the day when we can all be together again.

Sincerely,

Superintendent Andy DuRoss
