Any questions you may have regarding this resource should be directed to the Illinois Department of Human Services. • Customer Help Line: (833) 621-0737 • Website: https://www.dhs.state.il.us/ The only thing the school district does is provide the Illinois School Board Association with eligible families and their addresses.

Summer school starts tomorrow. K-6 students will attend either 8-10am or 10am-12pm Monday-Thursday throughout the month of June. K-6 summer school is located at Jefferson Elementary School. Doors will open at 7:45am and 9:45am respectively and students will report to the cafeteria, where a free breakfast will be available. We will have staff throughout the building helping students get where they need to go. If your child is a car rider, please drop off/pick up at the front doors (on Jefferson Ave). If your child is a bus rider, please give the bus drivers 5-10 minutes leeway on pickup/drop off times especially these first few days as students and staff are adjusting to routes. We look forward to seeing our summer school students tomorrow!
