Doors Open with Positive Messages about Friendship

Classroom doors at the School of Dual Language are doing much more than opening and closing. They are promoting positive messages about friendship.  Students in 18 classrooms, from kindergarten through fifth grade, decorated their doors as part of a Social Emotional Learning initiative.  Friendship was the theme.

Clarification About Today’s Drill

As you know, Hawthorn District 73 schedules drills throughout the year to ensure our schools are prepared for emergencies and other events. This morning a drill took place at Townline Elementary and the School of Dual Language. While a parent posted on Facebook that this was an actual lockdown, this was only a drill. While we encourage community engagement on our Facebook page, please contact the school prior to posting information about events such as drills to ensure the information on our Facebook page is correct.

Como usted sabe, el Distrito Hawthorn #73 programa simulacros durante el año escolar para asegurar que nuestras escuelas estén preparadas para emergencias y otros eventos. Esta mañana se llevó a cabo un simulacro en la Escuela Elemental Townline y en la Escuela de Lenguaje Dual. Un padre publicó en Facebook que se trataba de un cierre de emergencia real, esto fue solo un simulacro. Nosotros alentamos la participación de la comunidad en nuestra página de Facebook, por favor antes de publicar información sobre eventos, comuníquese con la escuela para garantizar que la información en nuestra página de Facebook sea correcta.
