Field News

Dear Parents, 

We are very excited to welcome many of our students in first through fifth grade back in person next week!  To help you prepare for your child’s first in-person day, please watch this short video.  You can also refer to the slides from this presentation if you prefer. Our Field staff has also put together a video for our students. Feel free to view it here

Dear Field Families,

It is hard to believe we have two full weeks of remote learning under our belt. Our Field staff are so excited to welcome our first group of students back to the building next week. I apologize for the length of this communication, but there is so much information to share. Please read through the information below as you are able. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at

The start of the school year has been stressful for many families as parents struggle to balance work with remote and hybrid learning. Staff at the Elmhurst Park District and Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 have been working behind the scenes for weeks to come up with the best solution to help as many families as possible during this tough transition. 

Club Ed. is a new program for children K-5 that will offer a convenient, self-directed E-Learning opportunity at various D205 and Park District locations. This program will provide a structured schedule that alternates designated time for self-directed E-Learning and recreational activities including indoor/outdoor games, arts and crafts. Children will be in a group of 15 participants or less in a format that meets all CDC health and safety guidelines. Face coverings will be required at all times except while eating.

Dear Field Families,

What a first week of school! I would like to send a sincere thank you to all of our parents, students, and staff for their patience, flexibility, and grace amid this very different start of the year. The national Zoom partial-outage this week as well as the internet interruptions added layers of complexity to navigating this remote start to the school year that were not anticipated. That being said, our Field staff were so thrilled to begin working with and getting to know your children this week.

Dear Field Families,

Our staff have been excitedly preparing for next week and are looking forward to getting to know your children better. Our teacher teams have worked incredibly hard to prepare for next week. We are all looking forward to our first week of remote learning.

Sign up for Daily Self-Certification Reminder

As we begin to phase students back to in-person learning, a daily health self-certification form will need to be completed for every student before they enter any building. The form can be accessed here. If you would like a daily text message reminder to fill out the self-certification form, text YES to 67587 to enroll in text message notifications.

An email will also be sent daily to the parents/guardians of any students attending in person. Your username is your student’s 5-digit PowerSchool ID (ex: 12345) and the password is your student's date of birth in mmddyyyy format (ex: 01011975). Please answer each of the three health questions honestly, and hit submit. Thank you for helping to keep our school community safe!
