Phone Calls for School Closings

Last year the Federal Communications Commission had changed its regulations and would no longer allow us to call home when school was closed for weather unless given permission. We sent instructions about logging in to the School Messenger Notification System’s InfoCenter to update your phone permissions. Well the FCC regulations have changed once again.

Under the revised regulations, the FCC recognizes a weather-related closing (such as a snow day) as an emergency. Therefore, District 54 will once again be calling parents and staff members if we were to close for a snow day. We have reset the SchoolMessenger settings to make this the default setting. If you do not wish to receive a call, please login to SchoolMessenger’s InfoCenter by following the instructions at and update your preferences.

Illinois Report Card

The Illinois State Board of Education annually releases school report cards that show how each school, each district and the state is performing on a wide range of educational goals. The 2016 report card information is expected to be posted on Monday, Oct. 31, on the state’s website at District 54 will also make it available on our website at

The website is expected to contain results from the 2016 PARCC assessment, as well as information about student and teacher demographics, enrollment, district-level financial information. The report card also includes results from the 5Essentials survey, which was given to students in grades 6 through 8, certified staff and parents this spring.

If you do not have access to the Internet or prefer to receive a hard copy, you may call the school at 847-357-5500. If you want copies of the report cards from more than one of District 54’s schools, please call the District 54 Community Relations Department at (847) 357-5027.

Homework Club

Our Homework Club has started again.  Homework Club takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school. Students looking for a quiet place to work or a little extra help from one of our teachers or student tutors are welcome to come to Homework Club.  In order to attend students need to request a pass from one of their teachers.  

We have also started giving students with five or more missing assignments a letter listing the assignments that are currently considered missing.  These letters are given to the impacted students every Friday.  Getting caught up on missing assignments is a priority for the staff at Eisenhower.  Therefore, the letter given to students with five or more missing assignments will also serve as the student’s pass to attend Homework Club for the following week.  Please continue to support your son or daughter by encouraging them to attend HwC when they need extra help!

Crisis Information- Información de Crisis

Due to a change in the Federal Communications Commission regulations, District 54 needs to receive parent permission to call your phones when school will be closed. You will not receive a phone call when we are closed due to weather, unless you follow the steps outlined in the attached letter from District 54 Community Relations Director Terri McHugh. The steps outline how you can subscribe to text messaging and also how you can use the SchoolMessenger InfoCenter app or website to give permission for us to call you in a weather-related closing. Regardless of the choice you make, we are still able to call all parents and emergency contacts in emergency situations, such as a hard lockdown.

I am also attaching a letter outlining the drills that we do with students to prepare for crisis situations. Please take a minute to read through that letter as we will begin drills shortly after students return to school.

Información de Crisis

Debido a un cambio en las regulaciones de la Comisión Federal de Comunicaciones, el Distrito 54 necesita recibir permiso de los padres en  la eventualidad  de cierre.  Usted NO recibirá una llamada en la eventualidad de cierre por causa de mal tiempo  a menos que usted siga los pasos  listados en la carta adjunta que remite  La Sra. Terri McHugh, Directora de Relaciones Comunitarias del Distrito 54. Los pasos describen cómo usted puede suscribirse a mensajes de texto y también cómo puede utilizar la aplicación “School Messenger Info Center” o su sitio web para dar permiso para que le llamemos en la eventualidad de un cierre relacionado con el clima. Independientemente de la elección que usted  haga, seremos  capaces de llamar a todos los padres y contactos de emergencia en situaciones de emergencia, como por ejemplo un bloqueo  fuerte “Hard lockdown”.

Adjunto también una carta  que lista los ejercicios que realizamos con los estudiantes  para prepararles   en la eventualidad de situaciones de crisis. Por favor tome un minuto para leer esa carta  ya que empezaremos los ejercicios un poco después de que los estudiantes regresen a la escuela.
