Dear South Holland School District 151 Families,
Taft, Eisenhower, Madison, and Coolidge Schools will close for Winter Break at the end of the day on Friday, December 16th. Winter Intersession Programs will take place at all schools from Tuesday, January 3 through Friday, January 6, 2023. All students will return to school on Monday, January 9, 2023.
On Wednesday, December 14th, students will bring home their student technology device for Winter Intersession/Break. For students in grades K through 2, this includes an iPad, a case, and a charging cable. For students in grades 3-8, this includes a laptop, a case, and a charging cable. Since families are responsible for the safekeeping of the iPad or laptop, we are asking you to store these items in a safe, dry place, such as a closet or cabinet.
During Winter Break, we are asking all families to take advantage of this time to give the children a break from screen-time, online activities, and social media. Although the use of technology devices can be helpful, it can also be overwhelming and give children access to negative images and interactions.
