Classes are back in session on Monday, January 5, 2015, for Oak Lawn Community High School, H.L Richards High School, District 122 and District 123 and for the Catholic elementary and high schools. Mothers have been overheard telling friends that they are “relieved” that school is back in session. Students on the other hand are hoping that the expected snow accumulates quickly and provides another day off.
Students at District 229 will be following the half-day bell schedule. Period 1-2 begins at 7:45 a.m. and Period 15-16 concludes at 11:41 a.m. Schedules for second semester will be distributed during Period 5-6. The Hometown PACE Bus will have a regular AM pick-up time and an after-school route immediately following the 11:41 a.m. dismissal. Second semester classes will begin on Tuesday, January 6, 2015.
Students at Richards will have a full day on Monday but will enjoy a late start on Tuesday due to a “teacher resources hour”.
Students in District 123 are back in school starting at 8:30 a.m. The OLHMS PTSA will have its meeting on Monday night at 7:00 p.m.
The Entrance Exam for current eighth grade students who wish to attend a Catholic high school will be held Saturday January 10, 2015.
