Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures

Effective Tuesday, January 18, 2022

To relieve the congestion at the Normal Avenue driveway each day during morning drop off and afternoon dismissal, we are enhancing our traffic patterns as detailed below. These enhancements are based on a traffic study of our campus that was reviewed by Cook County conducted during construction of the front driveway.

You will now have the option of entering campus for morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up from either the Normal Ave. driveway OR the Greenwood Ave. driveway.  

Please note two important details: 

  • The Greenwood Ave. driveway is only accessible if you are traveling southbound on Greenwood Ave. 

  • ALL traffic will exit onto Greenwood Avenue, using the main driveway that runs east-west on the north end of our campus.  

Please follow these instructions and review the campus map provided to ensure a safe arrival and departure each morning.

Extravaganza Grand Raffle 

Our Embers Extravaganza Grand Raffle is about to launch! Raffle tickets were sent home in the Friday Folders.
Over the next several weeks, your Sparks can help Embers by selling raffle tickets to help raise funds to support their school. Proceeds this year will benefit our Fund-A-Need. This year’s Fund-A-Need aims to focus on the design and renovation of a new entryway, lobby and administrative offices to coincide with the new driveway facing Greenwood Avenue.

The students also wrote essays, persuasive posters, and made models of their inventions. They demonstrated their creations and tried to persuade visitors to “buy” their inventions.
