A few weeks ago, the Arcola School District announced that the school board was considering the construction of a new front entrance area for the elementary school and the remodeling of the hallways in the elementary and cafeteria area. Since that time, a district committee comprised of administrators, teachers, support staff professionals and building staff have conducted several meetings to discuss what exactly would be needed in the project if it were to move forward. The main message from all parties on the committee was: “We need new bathrooms!” For more information and to view a drawing of the proposed construction, click on http://www.arcola.k12.il.us/facility-planning

Late yesterday , a bus with first grade students from Arcola Elementary School was coming back from a field trip on Route 133 west of Arcola, when the bus was struck by a vehicle head on. Around forty students and ten adults were on the bus when the accident occurred. Several students and adults that were on the bus have been treated by medical professionals and everyone seems to be doing well. Reported injuries include scratches, bruises, scrapes, muscle soreness and a broken bone. The school will have counselors available at school today to support the students and any family members in coping with the incident. The bus driver, from Gould Bus Service, reacted quickly to the car and her actions prevented more serious injuries from occurring. In addition, school personnel and emergency response professionals were quick to scene and implemented emergency response protocols in an attempt to provide order to a chaotic situation.

Scott's Law – If It's Flashing Move Over Driver Education Instructors, So far in 2019, 14 Illinois State Troopers have been hit by motorists while stopped on the side of the road, compared to eight incidents in calendar year 2018. The Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois State Police are working together to ensure all teen drivers, their parents, and families have the information they need to protect those who protect us. Scott's Law, also known as the Move Over Law, was named after Lieutenant Scott Gillen of the Chicago Fire Department who was struck and killed by an intoxicated driver while assisting at a crash on the Dan Ryan Expressway. Scott's Law mandates that upon approaching any stationary vehicle with flashing emergency lights, including commercial trucks and cars, all approaching vehicles shall: • reduce speed, • change lanes if possible; and • proceed with caution.

The Arcola School District will again be using a “Late Start” schedule as an option this school year when there is inclement weather. This means that on “Late Start” days school will start at 10 am and end at the regularly scheduled time. The regular bus routes will run two hours later than normal. A “Late Start” will be announced just like any school closing. We will publicize on TV and Radio, as well as send out information on our phone notification system and social media. To assist with transportation concerns, we have partnered with Gould Transportation to provide free in-town bus service on “Late Start” days for students that are not already on a regular route. If you live where district transportation is NOT currently provided and you are NOT on a paid in-town bus route but would like your student to be transported on “Late Start” days only, please contact Gould Transportation at 253-2232 to get signed up.

The increase for breakfast will be from $1.35 to $1.45. This change was required as part of the federal lunch program that the district participates in annually. The district is required to keep the paid prices close to the per meal reimbursement rate set by the federal lunch program. On the other hand, the Board reduced or suspended completely a variety of fees for students for the upcoming school year. The following are the changes that will be in effect for the 18-19 school year: • Reduction of Textbook/Registration Fee by $15 at all levels. The Fees will be ES - $30; JH - $40; HS - $45. • There will no course fees at the junior high or high school (these were $15 fees each for courses like Chemistry, Art, Ag, Business etc.) • There will be no $15 student activity fee for junior high and high school students. • There will be no $5 art fee for the elementary school students. • For junior high and high school extra-curricular activities, there will be a one-time $20 fee per student rather than a $20 fee per activity. The parents and community of Arcola has always supported the school district in tough financial times. The district is currently in strong financial condition and as a result, the Board decided it was time to reduce fees.

Dear Arcola School Community, there was a rumor going around tonight about a potential school shooting tomorrow at school. The district has been working with the Arcola Police Department investigating the situation. There is no creditable information that has led to any concern about student safety tomorrow. Again, there is NO Creditable Threat. But as a precaution we will have a police presence at school tomorrow.
