District Updates

The safety and well-being of students, staff and families remain the top priority for District 99. At this time, Cicero District 99 has decided that:  

All District 99 Schools will be CLOSED FOR IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION


This decision comes with a heavy heart as we know this will impact all of our faculty, staff, administrators, students and families in some way.

While our schools will remain closed for in-person instruction, academic opportunities and experiences through remote learning will continue to provide students with a variety of ways to engage with the school community.

Please know that everyone at D99 understands the importance of identifying ways to honor and recognize students through celebrations, graduations, and student achievement ceremonies. We are working diligently to identify alternative structures that both provide for the health and safety of our school community while also ensuring our students' efforts are recognized and celebrated.

D99 At The Forefront Of Remote Learning

Remote Learning Resources

Cicero District 99 would like to remind the community on the importance of having children connect to their classes and complete their assignments. The district is making sure students continue to receive quality instruction and this can not be possible if they do not connect with their teachers.

At this time, if a student has questions regarding their assignments or activities, they should reach out directly to their teachers through Schoology or Google Classroom. Teachers will be available:


10-11 a.m. and 2-3 p.m.

Parents are encouraged to make sure their children are continuing to use the reading and math tools available online. 

In addition to completing the activities assigned by teachers each day, District 99 recommends that students spend at least:

ONE HOUR doing math and ONE HOUR reading
