A Message From Mrs. Tarasiuk and Mrs. Sosin – January 9th

Dear Einstein Families,
​​​​​​​Welcome back and Happy New Year Einstein families! It was great to reconnect with our students and families after break.

We have successfully collected 2,500 pairs of shoes to donate to third world and developing countries. Our students did an amazing job collecting shoes with the help of our Kind Campaigners. Students learned that no matter where we come from and what we have, we can always give back. We are the change!

Einstein’s Coat and Shoe Closet
Einstein’s coat and shoe closet is up and running. We want to ensure that every child is prepared for the winter weather. If you are in need of coats, accessories, and shoes please do not hesitate to reach out to Michelle Roth at

Message from Nurse Joni
Often we ask ourselves, is my child too sick to go to school? Flu and cold season is upon us and often symptoms may look similar. Attached you will find more information to help determine when your child is healthy enough to return to school. Flu and Cold.docx Strep Throat.docx

Parking Lot Safety
We are working in conjunction with the Hanover Park Police Department to ensure student safety during pick-up and drop-off times. They are looking for our cooperation to utilize the drop-off area behind the school in a safe and orderly manner. The back drop-off is to be treated as a Drop and Go. Cars left unattended or are parked may be ticketed.  We find the back drop-off extremely beneficial for traffic flow and would like to continue to use this. Thank you for your cooperation.  

Winter Weather is Here!
Is your child dressed for the winter weather?  Sometimes our students like to scoot out of the door in the morning without gloves, hats, and boots.  With snowy and cold weather coming, make sure your child has a warm coat, gloves, and hat on them when they leave for school.  All students will go out for some fresh air for recess when the temperature is above zero degrees with the wind chill.  Snow pants and boots are needed if your child wants to play in the snow.  Otherwise, students will play on the blacktop that is cleared of snow.  When the wind chill index reaches below zero degrees or when precipitation causes outdoor activities to be extremely uncomfortable, recess is held indoors.  Therefore, please remember to help your child dress for the winter weather.

District 54 Cold Weather Response Plan
In order to help parents better prepare for the severe cold weather and snow we often get during winters in our community, I wanted to share with you the District 54 Severe Cold Weather Response Plan. Though District 54 makes every effort to keep our schools open and operational, circumstances beyond our control oftentimes dictate school closings.

5Essentials Survey
Once again, we are reaching out to our families and asking you to participate in the annual Illinois 5Essentials Survey to provide us with your perspective and help guide our school improvement efforts. The parent survey will be available online through Feb. 14, 2020, at  For more information, click here to read the letter from Superintendent Andy DuRoss.
