Dear Parents,

Incidents of school violence in recent years have touched all grade levels in K-12 schools.  While the typical higher profile incidents of violence typically occur at secondary high schools, elementary schools also require our attention in terms of safe school and crisis preparedness planning.

While there are very serious incidents, the more common security issues we address at elementary schools include:

  1. Non-custodial parent issues and domestic spill-over adult issues
  2. Access control
  3. Communications capabilities
  4. Bullying and other aggressive behavior prevention
  5. Supervision issues
  6. Crisis preparedness planning
  7. Physical security and related issues

Elementary school officials should work cooperatively with parents and the parish community by focusing on these and related safety concerns.

Here at Infant Jesus of Prague School, we want to ensure that your child is learning in a safe environment. The Flossmoor, Illinois police department officers have reminded our front desk staff of the following:

  • Enforcing the front door policy is imperative to consistently implement throughout the day.
  • When you enter into the first door of IJP, you must stop at the glass window to drop off small items or get recognized to get buzzed to enter the second door
  • Once you are inside the main office area, sign in if you have a duty or an appointment (volunteer duty, see the principal or teacher).
  • If you are visiting, you must complete the pass identification sticker.
  • Office Hours are 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday- Friday

Safety is important and I want all of us to continue to provide a safe environment for our children.

To ensure that your child is dropped off and picked up successfully, please find the after school activities and the map of Before Care drop off and Afternoon Extended Day pick up procedures. Any student not in an after school activity must go to the extended day room. Students cannot hang-out in a teacher’s classroom. Thank you.

Planning for next year will be beginning for  next year.  The PTO is in need of volunteers to help plan, organize, and execute the events.  Below is a listing of the board positions.  A meeting will be scheduled on Monday, March 11th at 7 pm in the Cafeteria.For the last couple of years I have been organizing the events and programs and then with the help of the office and volunteers running them.  It is past time to regroup and rebuild the board.

PTO stands for Parent-Teacher Organization, consisting of parents and teachers working together to support and enrich all students.  We support school staff, help promote student self-esteem, and assist in efforts to solve school needs through volunteering and funding.  But, in order to do all that we need the support of the parents.
