    IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARENTS Attention parents of kindergarten students and of students new to

    Chicago Public Schools in any grade. Illinois law requires that all

    students present evidence of a physical exam and immunizations in

    accordance with the Illinois Department of Public Health schedule in order to attend school. Students may not attend school after

    October 28th if these requirements are not met. Parents of students whose records are incomplete have been notified in

    writing twice. Unless the required documentation is provided to

    the school nurse, those students will be excluded from school after

    deliver requested records to Cathy Domres, RN as soon as possible

    Visiting Author

    Local author Marlene Byrne visited our school. She spoke to strdchildren in grades 1 through 3 about the importance of physical

    activity. An Edgebrook resident, Marlene has written four books

    for children. Her books are part of the “Project Play” series.

    Watching her children grow up, she decided to write this series of books based on her own experiences growing up in a small Wisconsin

    town. “I wanted to publish something that inspired families to

    value this creativity and feel good, not guilty, about their kids just

    playing in the backyards,” Marlene said. Our students are very

    lucky to have Mrs. Byrne in our own backyard to share her

    experiences with them. Thank you Mrs. Wright and Barnes and

    Noble for bringing Mrs. Marlene Byrne to our school.
