Day of Play

This Friday staff from the Fox Valley Park District will join us for a “Day of Play” at Fry. Students will gather by grade level to learn some new games and practice teamwork. Teachers will also add games to classroom learning activities. We are using grant monies targeting Social-Emotional Learning to fund this activity.

Lost and Found

“Lost and Found” items are on display in the front foyer. We have lots of hoodies/sweatshirts along with some water bottles, hats, and even a few coats. Please have your child check the tables if they are missing something. We will donate remaining items over winter break.

Daily Recess

District 204 procedures include daily outdoor recess when the temperature is above 5 degrees.  Recess time is limited to 15 minutes. The decision for outdoor vs. indoor recess will be made at recess time based on current weather conditions. 

Please make sure your student is prepared/has a hat, gloves, etc. If there is snow on the ground, students will need to have boots and snow pants to play in the field (students without snow gear will need to remain on the blacktop).

Health Reminders

Students should be kept home from school if they have a fever.  Students may return to school when they have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication.  The same 24-hour rule applies for instances of vomiting/diarrhea. 

If you are unsure/have a question about your child’s symptoms and school attendance, please call the office and ask to speak with the nurse.  Thank you for your support in helping to maintain a healthy school environment. 

Carline Reminders

With colder temps, carline traffic increases. Please note the important points below:

AM Reminder: Please remember that cars need to pull all the way forward in the laneCars should NOT stop at, or just past, the gym doors if there is room in front of them.  Please “fill the U” and use ALL of the space the U-shaped lane provides. 

PM Reminder: All cars should have their carline number visible on their dash the entire time in line.

Thank you for your assistance in following the carline procedures!


Brooksedge Drive – Please note!

Reminders for vehicles on Brooksedge Drive: There is no parking, stopping, standing…at all…on the south side of the street before and after school. Please obey the signage and do not drop students off on that side of the street. Also, please note the yellow curb near the crosswalk. Cars should never park or stop/stand/drop-off in the yellow curb areas on either side of the crosswalk, as doing so blocks visibility.

Please follow these guidelines to keep traffic moving, and most importantly, keep everyone safe!
