Planned to begin Friday, March 28, 2014, Prospect Street will only be Northbound from Route 20 to Route 176.  Cars will be able to enter and exit Prospect Street from Washington Street and Prairie Street, but only proceed North.  With these changes, the traffic patterns around the school are obviously going to be dramatically stressed.  I strongly encourage parents to have their children ride the buses if they are eligible for transportation or allow their children to walk home if they are walkers.  If you absolutely must pick up your child from school, please time your arrival after 2:20 p.m.  We do not dismiss the car riders until 2:20.  When picking up your students, please make sure that you pull up as far as you can in the fire lane.  NO CARS WILL BE ALLOWED TO PARK ON PROSPECT STREET TO WAIT IN LINE FOR THEIR CHILD.  The construction is slated to last the entire summer.  If you should have any questions, please feel free to call Superintendent Lea Damisch at 815-568-8323 or email Mrs. Damisch at


Planificado el viernes, 28 de marzo del 2014, Calle Prospect solo se trandra acceso a la norte direccion de la Ruta 20 a la Ruta 176.  Carros podran entrar y salir de la Calle Parospect de la Calle Washington y Calle Prairie, pero solo podran proceder hacia el norte.  Con estos cambios, el corrido de trafico alrededor de la escuela obviamente sera estresado dramaticamente.  Yo fuertemente animo a padres que hagan que sus ninos viajen por autobus si son elegibles para transportacion o que permitan a sus ninos que caminen si pueden caminar.  Si usted absolutamente tiene que recoger a su nino de la escuela, pro favor haga tiempo para llegar despues de las 2:20.  No despedimon a los ninos que son recogidos por carro hasta las 2:20.  Cuanda viene a recoger a su estudiante, por favor asegure que se acerque lo mas que pueda en la linea.  NINGUN CARRO SERA PERMITIDO ESTACIONARSE EN LA CALLE PROSPECT PARA ESPERAR EN LINEA PARA SU NINO.  La construccion se espera durar el verano entero.  Si tiene cualquier pregunta, pro favor no dude en llamarme a 815-568-8323 or por email a
