• Cold Weather Guidelines

    Since school will be in session on many cold days during the winter, it is important to make sure students are dressed appropriately to participate in outside activities. The guidelines established by District 47 during cold weather are as follows:



  • Birthdays

    In keeping with tradition, students will receive a book donated by the PTA/PTO on their birthday. Also, to promote and foster healthier student choices and to be mindful of the many student food allergies, we respectfully request that parents provide only non-food items when celebrating their child's birthday. Non-food items can include such things as stickers, pencils, books, etc. If you have any questions or are unsure about an item to send, please contact the school's main office for guidance. 



    Photo/Video Permissions

    To celebrate student success, District 47 wants to be able to share news of notable achievements with the various communities it serves. As such, it reserves the right to use and/or produce photographs, video, movies and voice recordings of any student in any legal manner for the internal and external promotional and informational activities of the District. Photos and/or video may be published on the District web sites, newsletter and social media sites, as well as shared with media outlets (both print and online).


    If you do not want your child photographed or videotaped for District 47 use, please send a signed statement to this effect in writing to Denise Barr, Coordinator of Community Relations, Crystal Lake Elementary District 47, 300 Commerce Dr., Crystal Lake, IL 60014. Please note that this opt-out statement must be filed annually with the District.
