A Note to the Elsie Johnson School Community Regarding Today's Hold in Place Schedule - 9/27/19

September 27, 2019

Dear Elsie Johnson School Parents,

The purpose of this letter is to keep you informed regarding situation that occurred at Elsie Johnson School today.

At approximately 2:22 p.m., a Hold in Place Schedule (formerly known as a Yellow Schedule) was called at Elsie Johnson School to attend to a situation involving a staff member in need of medical assistance.  This is part of CCSD93’s Crisis Plan. In a Hold in Place Schedule, students and staff members stay in their classrooms and continue learning until the given situation is resolved. The intent of a Hold in Place Schedule is to preserve the integrity and safety of the individual in need as well as the safety of the other students and staff members in our building. 

A call was placed to 9-1-1, and as a result, an ambulance arrived at Elsie Johnson School at 2:37 p.m. The staff member was safely transported to the hospital in the ambulance.

Students and staff responded appropriately to the Hold in Place Schedule by following directions. It ended at approximately 2:45 p.m. when the ambulance departed and our regular schedule was resumed.

Student and staff member safety is our highest priority and I thank our students and staff members for their cooperation during today’s Hold in Place Schedule. Please contact me at 630-671-8800 or if you have any questions or concerns with this information.

Thank you for your continued support,
Rosanne Sikich
Elsie Johnson School
