Weather Guidelines for School Closings
When it comes to closing school due to weather conditions, we approach this decision with the safety and well-being of our students as our highest priority. We understand that our decisions impact all families in various ways.
School closing announcements are communicated via all official school district social media accounts, automated School Messenger system (voice, text, email), and local media outlets.
Here are the guidelines the Superintendent uses to decide if schools will be closed.
We will now be able to use an eLearning Day when school is closed allowing us to count that day as a day of attendance. More details to come.
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
PBIS is a proactive systems approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture and needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success.
Maroa-Forsyth Middle School PBIS team establishes goals each quarter for behavior. We attempt to make all students have the opportunity to receive the reward. Rewards include lunch hour benefits, gift cards, free time, and special events, such as pajama dance or staff vs. student games.
At Maroa-Forsyth, we want to minimize the risks of bullying, including cyberbulling. Please visit the Illinois Attorney General's Cyberbulling website to get tips and see the latest trends to keep your child safe.
