Planned Emergency Drill
During the upcoming week of 2/27-3/02, students at Kennedy Junior High School will be participating in a Severe Weather/Tornado Drill. This drill is required by the State of Illinois and is aimed at helping students to recognize and practice the important procedures involved in a severe weather-related emergency. In preparation for the drill, students will be reminded to follow their teacher’s instructions, to locate an interior wall/location of the building, and to get into an appropriate position of safety until they are notified of the drill’s completion.

Thanks to all of the students who participated this winter. We are investigating if we acquire vouchers for the sessions students missed because Four Lakes has closed for the season. The following statement is from the Four Lakes Snow Sports website:
