From: Scales Mound CUSD #211

 Scales Mound CUSD #211 is always looking to provide our students with the safest learning environment possible as we empower our students to reach their fullest potential.  To that effect, a new procedure for our student pick-up and drop-off on Main Street will begin on August 22, 2018 when students return.

 Parents who drop-off and pick-up students will be asked to drive east on E. Germain Avenue to Main Street and proceed north on Main Street towards Provost Avenue. There will be a designated drop-off/pick-up area on the south end of the building nearest to E. Germain for parents to let students out on the sidewalk side of their cars.  Staff will be available to direct parents and welcome students to school.  

 If a parent wishes to walk their child into school in the morning or meet them at the door at the end of the day, we ask that you park your car in a parking stall at the north end of the building and walk them up the side walk in front of the building.

 In an effort to add to the safety of our students’ drop-off and pick-up, the Village of Scales Mound agreed to make Main Street one way from E. Germain Avenue to Provost during the following time frame:

 Monday thru Friday

7:30 AM to 8:15 AM and

2:30 PM to 3:15 PM

On school days only

 Scales Mound School appreciates the joint cooperation with the Village on the new drop-off and pick-up procedures.  The safety of all Scales Mound students is paramount to the District and community.  To get more information contact the school office between 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM.
