Greetings Medinah Families,

Now that we've approached daylight savings time and the start of some cooler weather patterns it is important to provide essential safety reminders.  

  • While outside walking to and/or from school it is important to be alert.            
  • Look both ways, be aware of your environment, eyes up, phones down, walk in a group, walk on sidewalks, be a              good role model, and be visible.
  • Dress for the weather.
  • Dress as warm as possible on cold days.
  • We recommend that students dress in layers, and wear hats, gloves, coats, and boots. 

With the weather changing, we want to remind families of our plans for e-learning days in the case of inclement weather. Please ensure that your contact information is updated with your child’s school. See Emergency School Closing Information.

This is also a great time to discuss and review the Medinah Student Code of Conduct with your child. Having conversations about what being safe, caring, respectful, and responsible look like will continue to help with maintaining a positive learning climate here in Medinah. 

Medinah Student Code

  • We are safe.
  • We are caring.
  • We are respectful.
  • We are responsible. 

Also, please be sure to help organize and/or clean your child's backpack and coat pockets. It's never too early to teach your child how to organize and keep their personal belongings tidy.

Medinah is thankful for our parents/family members and all you do every day for your child/children.

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

Teachers, parents, and students across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement. The Illinois 5Essentials Survey is an Illinois State Board of Education initiative designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. The University of Chicago is conducting the survey on behalf of the State Board of Education. District 11 teachers and students in grades 4-8 will complete the survey during the regular school day. 


District 11 parents may visit the Illinois 5Essentials Parent Survey

Your participation in the Survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. However, District 11 will ONLY receive the survey results if at least 20 percent of parents respond to the survey. Your identity and responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. We strongly encourage our parents to participate, as the feedback generated from the survey will only help us to focus our improvement efforts.

For more information about the Illinois 5Essentials Survey, please visit this link. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact 5Essentials Client Services at 1-866-440-1874 oi[email protected]

Thank you,

Susan Redell
Superintendent, Medinah School District #11
