Dear CCSD21 families,

Thank you for a successful first day of Distance Learning! While we miss seeing our students and staff in person, we know this is an unprecedented time. Distance Learning gives us the best opportunity to continue with a sense of normalcy while adhering to the Governor’s order to close schools across the state.

As you know, tomorrow is a previously-scheduled Institute Day. Students do not have any Distance Learning obligations tomorrow; teachers will use the day to refine their Distance Learning plans. Distance Learning for students and staff will resume on Wednesday.

Food service will continue tomorrow through Friday. Pick-up times at every location, however, are earlier in the day: 9:30 to 11:30 AM.

  • Kilmer Elementary School – 655 Golfview Terrace, Buffalo Grove
  • Poe Elementary School – 2800 N. Highland Avenue, Arlington Heights
