November 6, 2020
Dear Campanelli community,
We welcomed the sunshine and warmer temperatures this week which brought joy and happiness to our days. We hope that you find time to enjoy the beautiful weekend ahead with your family.
Ms. Heredia’s 3rd grade hybrid students took a break to soak in the sunshine and fresh air.
Virtual Turkey Trot
We are approaching the final days of the Virtual Turkey Trot which runs through November 8th. Students can share on the Padlet to celebrate their participation.  We are looking forward to coming together as a team, district and community for this fun virtual event. Check out the Virtual Turkey Trot website for more details:
A Message for Remote Learning Families
The new trimester begins next week! If you were not able to make it for material pick up, you can come to Campanelli any day between 8-4. Give us a call at 847-357-5333 when you arrive and we will deliver your materials curbside.
A Message for Hybrid Learning Families
If your child is attending Campanelli for on-campus hybrid learning, thank you for remembering to complete the self-screener before 8:00 a.m. on attendance days. Please see the District 54 Exclusion Chart on our website at for more details on when to keep your child home. If your child is enrolled in hybrid learning but you plan to keep them remote for the day, please call the attendance line 847-357-5335 to report their physical absence from school. We thank everyone that has chosen to stay home out of an abundance of caution to keep our students, staff and community safe. We welcome all children to continue to participate remotely if symptoms allow them to do so.
Parent Safety Letter
We have begun our annual safety drills for the year. Although they look slightly different, we want our students to always feel prepared if we are ever in an emergency situation. Please read more about these drills in the attached Parent Safety Letter.
Erin’s Law Parent Letter
We will begin our annual Erin’s Law presentations this month. Please read more about these important lessons in the attached Erin’s Law Parent Letter.
