Ms. Walker's 2019-2020 Class...
Room 3 has 22 students this year, 10 boys and 12 girls. Please note that our classroom is a nut-free classroom due to student allergies.
There will be many ways to connect with our class this year. We will share what we learn and exiting things that are happening in our class each week through Twitter. Our classroom Twitter account is... @MsWalkerD70. Pictures from everyday activities and special events will be uploaded to our classroom Google photo album for you to view and download. I will share a link to our photo album with families at the beginning of the year.

How To Contact Me
The best way to contact me is through email as I do not have a phone in my classrooms. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I typically check email at 7:15am, 11:30am, and between 3 and 4:30pm on school days. I will respond to emails within 24 hours.
Transportation changes should be sent with your child in the morning. A simple note in his/her folder or attached to his/her assignment notebook works perfectly. At the end of the school day, our staff makes sure that over 250 students get to the right mode of transportation. This is no easy task! Transportation changes made after the school day has started makes dismissal time more difficult and puts students' safety at risk. Only emergency transportation changes should be made after the school day has started.
If you have an emergency transportation change after your child has already left for school, you have a few options:
- You can email me AND the school office ( email@example.com ) so that everyone knows where your child should be going after school. The office will then alert me or substitute teacher to the change.
- You can call the Adler office at 847-362-7275 and let them know where your child should be going after school. The office will then alert me or substitute teacher to the change.
If your child normally attends Champions after school and you are changing his/her afternoon routine, please ensure that you alert us AND Champions to any after school changes. Champions needs to hear directly from parents in order to not be charged for that day.
Please note that students are not allowed to take any bus route other than the route they are assigned for the school year. Parents are asked to pick students up at Adler versus having children take a different bus route home.
Thank you for your understanding and help keeping our students safe and accounted for. If you have questions about Adler's transportation policies, please let me or the office staff know.
