Inclement Weather Update

Hawthorn takes school closings very seriously. Should schools close due to inclement weather or other unforeseen reasons, the district uses an automated emergency notification system to send a recorded voice message to each student’s home telephone number, as provided during registration. Parents have the option of managing their emergency notifications by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal to change telephone numbers, request text messaging, and request email messaging. For more information on how Hawthorn determines school closings, please click here.

State Senator Talks with Students

State Representative Visits

Fourth graders in the classes of Ms. Velazquez, Ms. Mejia and Ms. Brandt received quite a treat on Friday. Illinois State Representative Carol Sente stopped by to talk with students. She answered many questions about what her job was like and what motivated/inspired her to become a representative.  She also asked the students a number of questions and complimented them on how knowledgable they were.  For instance, students knew the answers to the questions:  what is the state bird (cardinal), what is the state flower (violet), and what is the state animal (white-tailed deer). She stumped them, however, when she asked what was the state reptile. Who would have known it is a turtle.
