Eagle Ridge School Drop Off-Pick Up Instructions
Eagle Ridge Families,
I am reaching out to communicate drop off and pick up procedures in the circle drive, entry drive to the circle drive, and the roadway entering the circle drive.
Drop Off: PLEASE BE CAUTIOUS AND COURTEOUS of your surroundings. We are a school and our primary responsibility is to ensure the safety of all children at all times. When dropping off your child in the morning please do so in quick fashion. With the circle drive being a small area for vehicles we need you all to work with the district. Please do not exit your vehicle to walk your child into the building unless you are parked along the South East side (Yellow Bollards) of the circle drive. Pull over far enough that the next vehicle can get by you without going onto the island grass. You all must work together to keep our children safe at all times.
Pick up: If you are the first or last car you must work together. The first car MUST pull all the way around to the South East side (Yellow Bollards) of the circle drive. By doing so you are alleviating cars from having to pass you in the main area of the circle drive. Please DO NOT PARK ALONG THE LEFT (INSIDE grass) part of the circle drive. We have no way to exit cars if we are doubled up. RESPECT each other and the safety of all students at ALL times. As your child comes to your car get them in safely and buckled then depart using caution. As one car exits another car will follow in line of succession. If you are parked on the sidewalk side OR the street, please use caution as you move up in line. Students are walking and running from all directions.
REMEMBER, WE ARE THE ADULTS. WE MUST WORK TOGETHER AT ALL TIMES. Being in a hurry creates careless driving which results in accidents.
We are in this together so let’s continue to watch out for all children, not just our own.
Have a great day!
5Essentials Survey Information
Beginning January 30, 2024, students, parents, and teachers across Illinois have an opportunity to participate in the annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school.
On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance, and larger test score gains. These five indicators that affect and predict school success are:
Prior research in more than 400 schools has shown that schools that were strong on at least three of these “5Essential” indicators were 10 times more likely to improve student learning gains in math and reading than those that were weak on three or more Essentials.
All teachers and 4th through 12th grade students will be asked to respond to this survey. 5Essentials Reports will be generated for schools if their teachers and/or students meet the response rate threshold of 50 percent. These reports will be sent to schools and districts and will also be included in the State School Report Card.
Additionally, our district has chosen to provide the optional Parent Supplement survey. If at least 20 percent of Eagle Ridge School parents complete this survey, a parent supplement report will also be generated. The parent data will not be reported on the State Report Card.
Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child.
The Illinois 5Essentials Survey for students, teachers, and parents will be available from January 30, 2024 through March 29, 2024. To take the survey please visithttps://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and select the appropriate survey to begin.
