  • Remote and In-Person Hybrid Learning Underway

    Posted by Janet Bishop on 1/8/2021 3:00:00 AM

    back to school At the current time, District 63 is offering remote and hybrid in-person learning to its students. About 38 percent of our PreK-8 students are attending school in our buildings each morning (some preschoolers attend an afternoon session); all K-8 students learn remotely in the afternoon.

    PLEASE NOTE that this decision is based on current COVID metrics. If positivity rates and caseloads rise above our defined thresholds for in-person learning, this decision will be reversed. Parents will be given at least 48 hour notice of the change. 

    Find out more about how our students are learning.

  • School & District Offices Closed: Email or Call!

    Posted by Janet Bishop on 11/11/2020

    closed November 16: In light of the rapidly increasing COVID case numbers and positivity rates throughout our state - as well as the approaching holiday season - the Cook County Department of Public Health has issued a Stay-at-Home Advisory for suburban Cook County residents - in effect for at least 30 days. Among other things, it notes: 

    STAY HOME. As much as possible, please refrain from any non-essential activities and stay home.
    WORK FROM HOME. As much as possible, CCDPH is calling on employers in suburban Cook County to re-establish telework protocols for staff who are able to work from home.

    In order to comply with this advisory - and keep all of our employees safe - all of our school offices will be closed and operating remotely through December 18. The District office will also be closed during this time. As is always the case, school offices will be entirely closed during Winter Break (December 21 - January 1) However, school and office staff will be available should you need assistance or have questions. 

    For the District Office:

    For our schools:

    • Send an email at your school’s general email address.
    • Call and leave a voicemail at your school office.
    • You can find email and phone number information on your school’s home page: look for the large “Contact Us” envelope icon below the banner photo.

    Please be aware that remote learning will continue as scheduled November 30 - December 18. We look forward to seeing your children online!

    During the 2019-2020 school year, D63's elementary school attendance boundaries will shift to reflect current population trends, school capacity, and District-wide changes. As Gemini expands to include 6th graders and kindergarten expands to a full day, the number of students attending each elementary school will change.

    Thanks to all those parents and families who joined up for one of our three information meetings in May. Stay tuned for more opportunities when school begins in the fall!

    Rivers Donation  

    Rivers Casino representatives dropped by the Total Learning Community (TLC) headquarters on April 6 to deliver a very big check (in every sense of the word)!  Located in Des Plaines, Rivers fosters strong community partnerships, supporting a wide range of local causes. This generous $29,925 donation will enable TLC - which operates at all District schools - to purchase 75 computer tablets (complete with storage carts) for program participants. Some of our TLC kids joined (L-R) Devin Maddox, Rivers Senior Counsel; TLC Director Pam Surber; Dr. Scott Clay, District 63 Superintendent; and Jillian Wilcox, Rivers Director of Finance, to celebrate.

    Last October, the Niles Teen Center held its Niles Lights ON Afterschool Information Fair and Rally. This nationwide event calls attention to the importance of afterschool programs and the resources required to keep the lights on and the doors open. The Niles Teen Center, TLC: Total Learning Community, the Niles Optimist Club, and Golf Mill Shopping Center are proud to be Lights On Afterschool Partners. The evening included an information fair of community youth organizations, program demonstrations, an open house and tour of the Teen Center, arts and crafts projects, food, prizes, and a rally with community speakers.

  • East Maine School District 63 Joins with Morton Grove to Promote Green Living

    Posted by Dr. Scott Clay on 8/25/2014 3:00:00 PM
    Village Greening Logo We are proud to announce a new initiative for the Village of Morton Grove. This intergovernmental partnership was created in an effort to provide residents, students, teachers, administrators and visitors of our community cooperative means to enrich a common goal-Go Green for Village Greening. Our collective objective is to provide information and support on best practices when it comes to energy conservation and sustainability. Rather than working as a separate unit, several key administrators within the Village met to discuss how we could work together on issues we are all trying to solve.
