Greetings Orchard Place Families,
In anticipation of our new 2019-2020 school year, I would like to welcome the following staff members to our growing Orchard Place Family: Lauren Cipkin (Art) and Elizabeth Gonzalez (4th grade).
Orchard Place students and families are invited to our School Supply Drop-Off on Thursday, August 15 from 4:00-5:00 p.m. Families can visit classrooms and drop off school supplies. Students in grades 1-5 will begin class on Monday, August 19, 2019. Kindergarten students will begin class on Wednesday, August 21, 2019. As a reminder, supervision of students begins at 8:45 a.m. and class begins promptly at 9:00 a.m. We ask that all students arrive by 9am each school day. Our front office hours are 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. daily. If a student will be absent from school, please call Mrs. Herula, Health Clerk, at 847-824-1406 and provide a reason for the absence. Student safety, health and wellbeing are top priorities.
Orchard Place offers free breakfast and lunch to all students, as part of the Community Eligibility Program (CEP). Enrolled students are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of this school year. Breakfast will be served in the classroom at the start of the school day.
The excitement of a brand new school year will soon be upon us. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me and know that my door is always open.
