Announcement from Dr. Magnuson - I am excited to announce that my family will be adding a new member around Thanksgiving. I am expecting a baby girl at that time.
CPS Child Supervision Survey - CPS and the City of Chicago are surveying families to better understand who may need help this fall finding a safe space for their children during traditional school hours. As we assess parental needs throughout the city, we are evaluating opportunities to provide potential support with child supervision for families who have school-age children under 14 years of age. Families who live in high-need communities or transitional housing will be prioritized.
Beginning of the Year Required Forms - Please see the following link (https://www.cps.edu/globalassets/cps-pages/services-and-supports/health-and-wellness/student_health_school_forms_booklet_engish_2020-2021.pdf) for the student health and school forms booklet. These can be submitted electronically, mailed or dropped off (starting the week of 8/31) at the school. (The health related forms typically are not due until mid October.)
