To the Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of School District 25 Elementary Student(s):
It is your responsibility to monitor your student(s) lunch account balance(s) using an on-line account at www.mymealtime.com. The ID number needed to add each student to your account is the same number students use as a “server password” to log on to school computers. There is no cost for setting up an account. Only if you decide to pay on line is there a fee. You are always welcome to send in checks to your child’s school to add funds to your child’s lunch account.
If you have any questions about how to set up an account, please refer to the district website at www.sd25.org, select departments and then food service. On the food service home page select pre payment options. If you need additional assistance please call the Food Service office at 847-758-4883.
Starting April 16th the District will be using an automated phone message to let you know when your child’s account is negative more than $2.65. Calls will be made between 8:00 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. Once your child has a negative account balance in excess of $7.95, they will be called to the office and given an alternate meal. When adding money to your child’s account online there is a twenty-four (24) hour delay in the money showing up in the account. You must print your confirmation letter or send a check with your child to school to avoid the alternative lunch. Alternative lunches are the same price as the regular lunch and will meet nutritional guidelines.
If your family is experiencing financial difficulty, please complete an application to see if you would qualify for free or reduced price meals. Applications are available on the District 25 website or from the office at your child’s school.

Olivia: In second grade math we are finishing up fractions. Our next unit is measuring, area, and perimeter. In Egypt we have made posters to put questions, awnsers, and facts on. They are in the hallway. Here are some reminders: We have baby praying mantises. Please [If you can] find some insects such as some ants. At school we are having a fundraiser and we are putting books, bookmarks, small toys and stuffed animals, markers, and pads of paper to send to the Northwest Community Hospital. If we fill the box we will get a small treat. Thanks! The most important thing I learned this week was not to rush your work.This is important because when you rush you don't have quality work and you get a card flip.

Maeve and Levi: In our classroom we've been learning about Ancient Egypt. The stuff that we've been learning about is about mummies in Ancient Egypt. In first grade math, we are learning about dollar bills. In second grade math, we are learning about fractions. The most important learning this week was about mummies. This is important because we learned how they are made and why mummies were made.
