While Fall is still officially here a little while longer, the cold weather and snow is upon us. Children are encouraged to wear layers for the variety of activities that take place throughout the day. To alleviate missing winter coats, gloves, hats, scarves, etc., please label your child’s garments with his/her name. It’s really incredible how many missing items pile up so quickly!  The lost and found will be donated or thrown away at the winter break. Encourage your child to check the items in the coming weeks if missing something. Children must be dressed in snow gear to play in the snow at recess. This ensures they stay both warm and dry. As a reminder, we go outside for recess unless:

  1. Temperature is below 15 degrees
  2. Heavy new snow of three inches or more
  3. Rain, regardless of the amount
  4. The temperature, when combined with the wind speed, produces a wind chill of 10 degrees or below

On November 20th, District 27 will celebrate its 165th year of providing excellence in education to the community.

The District has had a rich history, from the construction of a one-room school house, to the creation of three state-of-the-art school buildings. 

To help us celebrate, we want you to send us photos and/or memories of your years in our District schools. We will publish them on our website and our Facebook page.

Please email copies and/or stories to Gail Kahover at kahover.g@nb27.org, or mail them to 1250 Sanders Road, Northbrook, IL 60062. You can also use Twitter (@D27schools).

For more information about the District's past, please check out our history page and the latest InReview community newsletter.

Thank you. We look forward to hearing from you!
