Some good news to share with you all! The North Cook Region of the Illinois Principals Association recently recognized Anastasia Netzel of London Middle School and Crystal Jimenez of Field Elementary School as its Middle School and Elementary School Principals of the Year! Netzel was nominated for leading the building in a positive and successful manner, particularly as the world re-emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic. Jimenez received her nomination for servant leadership and the ability to be an agent of change for the well-being of students and staff. "Community Consolidated School District 21 is fortunate to have a team of school principals dedicated to the well-being, growth and success of all students,” said Dr. Michael Connolly, superintendent of CCSD21. “To have Crystal and Anastasia recognized with this honor by their colleagues is a testament to their deep passion and professionalism. It is an honor that is greatly deserved, and we congratulate and celebrate them for their amazing work leading Field and London.” The two administrators will be honored during an annual student recognition breakfast in March. They also become candidates for their respective categories for the statewide IPA Principal of the Year award, to be announced later this year. Congratulations to Principal Netzel and Principal Jimenez! You can read more about their award here .
Dear CCSD 21 Parents and Guardians, We are getting wide spread reports of power outages that will impact our ability to offer a full day of E-learning. As a result we are canceling today's e-learning and will be using one our five emergency closure days. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope that everyone is able to stay safe and warm. Respectfully, Dr. Michael Connolly Superintendent
Dear CCSD21 Parents and Guardians, We have been closely monitoring Friday’s winter storm forecast over the last two days. Based on the most recent data and weather forecasting from the National Weather Service, all CCSD21 schools will be closed to in-person learning and will engage in an E-learning day tomorrow, Friday, January 12, 2024. The track of this storm is predicting two waves of heavy snowfall and wind that will make travel conditions for both the morning and afternoon commutes difficult and potentially dangerous. The National Weather Service has upgraded our area to a Winter Storm Warning. An E-learning day is a full day of learning consisting of both synchronous and asynchronous learning activities. Your child(s) teachers will communicate specific details on tomorrow’s learning activity. We are also closely monitoring potentially dangerously cold temperatures and wind chills which may impact the school day on Tuesday, January 16. We will update families as appropriate over the holiday weekend. Again, all CCSD21 schools are closed to in-person learning and will engage in an E-learning day tomorrow, Friday, January 12, 2024. Please stay safe and warm during tomorrow and over the holiday weekend. Respectfully, Dr. Michael Connolly Superintendent
Dear CCSD 21 Faculty and Staff, For the last several days we have been working diligently tracking the winter weather in our area. The superintendent has considered input from the assistant superintendents, transportation services, area superintendents, local and online weather sources and has decided to keep school open today, Tuesday, January 9, 2024. Please remember that the final decision is up to the parent/guardian. If you decide to keep your child home because of the weather, please contact your child's school.
Dear CCSD 21 Families, I hope that everyone has enjoyed a wonderful holiday season and a well deserved Winter Break! We are looking forward to welcoming our students back to school tomorrow morning; however, we are also actively tracking winter weather that may impact the area overnight Monday throughout Tuesday. Our most recent information from the National Weather Service is that the track of this storm and overall impact on our area is not certain. It is possible that conditions overnight will deteriorate and make the commute to school tomorrow morning difficult. In addition, there is a possibility of a second wave of weather Tuesday afternoon into evening that could increase total snowfall totals and make the commute home on Tuesday afternoon difficult. While I anticipate a normal day of school tomorrow, I have also asked our school staff to prepare to hold an E-learning day on Tuesday should the conditions warrant it. In preparation for that possibility, please ensure that your child’s Chromebook device is fully charged for Tuesday AM. Should an E-learning day be necessary, your child’s teacher(s) will communicate the learning plan for the day. We will continue to closely track the forecast and will keep families updated; however, at this time, I do not anticipate having enough information to make a decision on the use of an E-learning day until early Tuesday AM. Should an E-learning day be necessary, we will communicate with families by 5:30 AM. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Respectfully, Dr. Michael Connolly Superintendent CCSD 21 Winter Weather School Closing Guidelines
