Medinah School District 11
Welcome to
Medinah School District 11

 

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Now that winter is here, I would like to remind you of important information regarding potential school closings. Though District #11 makes every effort to keep our schools open and operational, circumstances beyond our control sometimes dictate school closings. 

Here are some reminders for you to consider:
1. If school should be closed tomorrow for inclement weather or an 
    emergency, who would care for and supervise my child(ren)?

2. If school was to close early today (due to broken water pipes, 
    power failure, heating problems, accumulating snowfall, etc.), 
    who would be able to take care of my child(ren) for the remainder 
    of the day?

3. Is my contact information up-to-date? This would include email and 
    phone numbers. If you are not sure, check your PowerSchool 
    account or check with the school office. This is the information 
    we will use to contact you, so please make sure it is current.


In addition, please utilize this handy reference for emergency school closings and information.

        Emergency School Closing Sources of Information


• Email: All District #11 parents/guardians who have provided their child’s 
  school with an email address will be sent an email when school is closed.


• Phone: Each student’s primary phone number will be called using our 
  rapid phone notification system.


• District #11 website: http://medinah11.org 

• Facebook: www.facebook.com/MedinahSchoolDistrict11 

• Twitter: https://twitter.com/Medinah11 

Every effort will be made to have all of these information sources updated by 6:00 a.m. in the event of a snow emergency day.

Sincerely,

John Butts, Superintendent of Schools

    MEDINAH STAFF PRESENTS
 

Intermediate School staff Kelly Reinmann, Kristen Bernacki, Mary Petschinsky and Natalie Czarnecki presented their Social Emotional Learning (SEL) “journey” at the DuPage ROE on February 15th. They shared what they are doing at Intermediate School with educators throughout DuPage County.

Additionally, they shared the problem-based learning work (ex. Afternoon of Kindness) which 3rd graders have invested their efforts towards. Third graders and MIS staff raised over $250.00 which was donated in various ways to the DuPage PADS shelter. A special thank you to the presenters Natalie Czarnecki, Kristen Bernacki, Kelly Reinmann, Mary Petschinsky, the MIS staff and student body, and the parents involved in the Afternoon of Kindness projects. Our Social Emotional Learning work would not be possible without the ongoing leadership and support from the DuPage Regional Office of Education and the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL). Thank you to Ruth Cross, CASEL, Marjorie Cave and Dr. Darlene Ruscitti from the DuPage Regional Office of Education.
