Elsie Johnson Expect Respect Club April Trip to Windsor Park Canceled

Dear Elsie Johnson School Parent,

You are receiving this message because you are the parent of a student in Elsie Johnson’s Expect Respect Club who was to visit Windsor Park Retirement Community in May to assist residents with technology.

Throughout the past several days, CCSD93 has held conversations with leaders at Windsor Park Retirement Community about our various partnerships. While their residents love when our students come by to interact, provide technology help, or put on a concert for them, their preference is that CCSD93 does not send students over for the time being. 

This decision has not been made because of any specific circumstances, but out of an overabundance of caution given the residents' ages and increased susceptibility to falling ill, especially with the continued concern over COVID-19. 

So as a result, I am sorry to share that we will need to cancel the Elsie Johnson Expect Respect field trip scheduled for Windsor Park in May. Mrs. Patel and Miss Falk will remind students of this the next time they interact with them.

Thank you,

David H. Hill
Superintendent of Schools
