EIU Care Game Fund Drive

Ashmore School is helping to aid cancer survivors with their immediate needs by participating in the EIU Care Game Fund Drive. Classes are competing to see who can raise the most money to donate. The winning class will get a fun visit from the EIU Women’s Basketball Team this Spring! Help area cancer survivors by contributing to this fund drive, and by attending the CARE Game on Saturday, February 8th at 1:00pm! If you know a cancer survivor that would like to attend the game, please contact the school for a Survivor invitation/ reservation form. Survivors and their families will be honored at the game with a reception and special seating!


Parent Survey

Our district values the input of our school community and we encourage all of our parents to make their voices heard by taking a survey called 5Essentials.  This is your opportunity to give feedback on your school.  We urge parents to participate in this short survey to help improve our school.  Parents can access the survey at our district’s website today through February 14, 2020 or by clicking on this link:  2019-20 Illinois Parent Survey.  Thank you for helping to make a difference at Charleston CUSD #1.  


Weather Related Issues

Under certain special circumstances, it may be possible to have school during adverse weather conditions, and a decision may be made to run snow routes. Snow Route information is available by clicking here. Please review this information to make sure you know where the pick up and drop off points are located for your child.

If we have a 2-hour delayed start, the school day will be from 9:50am-2:30pm. Students may arrive at school any time after 9:15am. Aramark will serve a Grab and Go style breakfast on these days.
