Dear Cicero District 99 community,
As we begin the second quarter of the 2021-2022 school year, we have had so many wonderful experiences as we have come back to in-person learning!
This coming Tuesday, Nov. 9, the District will be hosting its first parent teacher conferences of the school year. Though these conferences will be held virtually, they are extremely important for the school, the students and the families to help the academic, social/emotional and overall well-being of students. I would like to encourage all of you to attend these conferences as we move forward together!
As a District, we are extremely proud of our community for following all of the safety protocols against COVID-19. As of this point, we have less than 1 percent of our staff and just over 1 percent of our students that have tested positive for COVID-19. Working together to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff has been the main reason that we continue to see this low rate of positive cases.
As I stated last month, as a District, we pride ourselves in educating the whole child. And, as we move forward together through the school year, we will continue to focus not only on academics, but on the social and emotional well-being of every child as well. In the coming weeks, we will be asking the community, students, teachers and the Board of Education for input into our long-term strategic plan. Please be on the lookout for details.
Lastly, I would like to recognize and thank the Town of Cicero, President Larry Dominick and all of our community partners for their continued support. Just in the last few weeks alone, we have celebrated Houby Day, Trunk or Treat and Dia de los Muertos, and in the coming days, we will be providing the first opportunity for children ages 5 and up to become vaccinated. Please visit our District website, cicd99.edu, for more details. The partnerships that we have truly help us move forward together!
Thank you to all who participated in last month's community events, and thank you for all of your unwavering support to the District, staff and most importantly, the students.
