Sycamore School District #427

Empowering All Learners To Succeed In Their World

  • October 21, 2014

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    On Tuesday, October 21st, 2014 Sycamore Middle School successfully held a state mandated Lockdown Drill in conjunction with the Sycamore Police Department. Students and parents were notified prior to the drill taking place.

    Sycamore School District #427 continues to work to provide a safe learning environment where students feel valued. Drills like the one that took place today help us look at procedures and ways we can improve.

    We thank Sycamore Police Department for providing their guidance and personnel as we work together as a community to keep safety at the forefront.

    Sincerely,

    Kathy Countryman

    Superintendent

  • Enterovirus Information

     

    While we have not had any confirmed cases of the Enterovirus, we would like to remind you about the district policy on students that are ill.  Please keep your student home if he/she has a fever of 100°F or more and/or has vomited or had diarrhea. We ask that students be symptom free for 24 hours before turning to school. If a student has been ill for three or more days a doctor's excuse may be required.
