Dear Families and Friends of Bower Elementary School

It is hard to believe but the first half of the school year is behind us and the month of January has come to a close.  As the cold weather continues, please remember that students will generally be outside for recess and need to dress appropriately.  With the colder weather, more students are also being driven to school. To insure safety and to facilitate smooth traffic flow, it is essential that parents adhere to the following drop-off and pick-up procedures.

  • A single line is formed in our parking lot for both dropping off and picking up students before and after school.  Please no passing cars in this line because this creates more of a safety hazard for everyone during these busy times of the school day.
  • Cars should move forward as far as possible along the sidewalk before stopping so that the maximum number of students will be able to be dropped off/picked up at the same time. This needs to be an efficient process and cars that stop short add considerably to the congestion problem.
  • If it is necessary to park your car, please escort your children across the parking lot by using the crosswalk.  Students should NEVER be allowed to walk in the parking lot without an adult.  An unattended child crossing the parking lot is an unsafe situation and is not acceptable.
  • Finally, the handicap parking spaces need to be used appropriately.  Please do not use the spaces to drop off students unless you are entitled to use them.

As required by law, I am letting you know that Community Unit School District 200 has conducted the required inspections of asbestos containing building materials in District 200 schools.  Certified District 200 employees have conducted the inspections and developed management plans.  The results of the inspections indicate that safe conditions exist in all buildings. The implementation of Operations and Maintenance plans will continually maintain and monitor the district to insure these safe conditions are sustained.  Copies of the management plan are available in each building and in the office of the Buildings and Grounds Department in the Woodland School Facility in Warrenville. 

I look forward to warmer weather and the second half of the school year.  I would once again like to thank all of our Bower families and our staff members for being so generous with their time and talents.  Everyone is invested in the growth and success of all our children. Within the Bower community, we all work together “inspiring within everyone a passion to excel”. 

Thank you for your commitment to all our children.
