Dear IJHS Parents, If you are picking up your child by car, we are asking that you drive slowly and cautiously down Highland. The water main break has created water pooling on Highland and running into our lot. We ask that you enter the pick up circle slowly. We appreciate your cooperation in creating a safe dismissal process for all. Respectfully, Merryl Brownlow

Hello Bus 3 Families, The bus broke down in the Independence Junior High Parking lot at dismissal. The company is sending a new bus to complete the route. The students from Navajo and Independence will transfer to the new bus and then it will proceed to Chippewa to load those students. The route will run 30-45 min late. We are sorry for this inconvenience, but glad that our students were at one of our schools when the bus broke down.
Bus 3 had a mechanical issue en route. They are sending a 2nd bus to do the route. Expect that it will run late.
Chippewa Families, We very much appreciate everyone's understanding and support this morning when we had to close Chippewa due to a water main break in the neighborhood. Mr. Jasinski, from Palos Heights Public Works, called to confirm that we can reopen the building tomorrow. He also apologized for the inconvenience. As a courtesy, until the full main can be replaced, Mr. Jasinski is installing emergency valves that are intended to prevent a school closure should there be another break between now and the end of the school year. We are grateful for the village's partnership in resolving this issue as quickly as possible. We look forward to welcoming our Cheetahs back tomorrow! l

I have students picked up. We apologize for the late notice an inconvenience. We were just notified by the village. Respectfully, Merryl
