Dear Adler Families,
|Message from the Principal (12-4-20)|
Good afternoon Adler Families,
Mrs. Panov, Adler’s School Nurse, must be communicated with prior to starting the live streaming for any student. If you are emailing your child’s teacher with concerns due to COVID, please include myself and Mrs. Panov in the email. Live streaming will be made available to students the day following notification from the parent and confirmation from the nurse. If the child needs materials to be sent home, this may take 24 hours for the teacher to gather the materials and place in the vestibule but each teacher will work with each child’s family to communicate when those items will be ready for pick up, if needed.
|AFA and Adler Student Council Food Drive|

Please click here for a list of much needed items, especially tuna, ramen noodles and rice.
Donations can be made 3 ways:

|Message from Mrs. Weber|
Hi Adler Families! Let’s have some fun at home this holiday season while giving back to children in need! All you need are some Legos and your imagination! Create a decorative ornament for the season, take a picture of it, and Tweet it with: #BuildToGive. Be sure to tag me: @MrsWeberGTE so I can see your creation! For every creation you tweet, one Lego set will be donated to a child in need! If your family doesn’t have a Twitter account or you’d just prefer to not use it, simply email me with your child’s first name and teacher, and I will Tweet it out for you!
Here are some helpful links to get you started:

|Request from the Adler Art Teachers|
With students returning to in-person learning, many of their art supplies have returned back to the school building. The art teachers are asking that children also have access to some of these supplies at home for their at-home synchronous art lessons. Mrs. Sather and Mrs. Brooks would love for kids to have crayons or colored pencils, markers, scissors, glue stick and of course paper! Students will have way more fun in art if they have these supplies at the ready. Thank you!
|Family Reading Night 2020|
Thank you to all our families who attended our Family Reading Night last night. We had a wonderful time sharing books together as an Adler family. We had almost 50 families sign on last night! I also want to thank Ms. Carr for organizing this event for our students and families each year and for finding a way to offer this virtually this school year.
Frequently Asked Question for D70:
No, not at this time. However, during a pandemic, quarantining demands after traveling can change. For the most up-to-date information on travel, please check the IDPH website here.
|Publicity Permission for 20-21|
District 70 maintains an open relationship with the area news media and welcomes coverage of student events and achievements. When the news media is in the schools (once visitors are allowed back in the schools), children dealing with the media are closely monitored and protected by school staff. District 70 also works to communicate student events and achievements through the community-wide newsletter,
District 70 Views, along with the D70 website (d70schools.org), individual D70 school websites, as well as D70-based, D70-sanctioned, or educationally-based teacher websites. Student projects, as well as student images, may be used on these sites. Students appearing on D70 websites may be identified only by their first names and the initials of their last names. As technology advances and new tools to communicate are introduced, D70 will select appropriate tools to enhance communication between D70, parents, and the community. District 70 uses social network sites in its dedication to transparency, including FaceBook (Libertyville D70), Twitter (Libertyville D70), Instagram (LibertyvilleD70), and teacher or school YouTube accounts that are protected by being unlisted, and on occasion will post student names (first name, last initial), images, or work.
Information that D70 releases is not sold or given to commercial or non-profit groups. Any parent/guardian can withhold their consent for release by sending a signed letter withholding consent for the news media, along with the D70 website and D70 school websites, in the current school year within the first thirty (30) days of school to Libertyville Elementary District 70, Attn: Robin Smith Kollman, Director of Communications, 1381 W. Lake St., Libertyville, IL 60048.
Parents/guardians should understand that if they withhold consent, none of the student’s information would be released. This includes examples such as information/photographs for the school yearbook or memory book, award listings such as the honor roll in the newspaper, and classroom projects on D70-based teacher websites or links.
