Important Info for Western Trails Parents - 12/20/18

December 20, 2018

Dear Western Trails Parents,

The purpose of this letter is to inform you of a situation that occurred at Western Trails School today and is not intended to alarm you. You are receiving this message either because you have a child in Mrs. Addante’s class or a child who was participating in the lunchtime Tech Ninja Club in the school’s Innovation Center today.

At approximately 12:45 p.m., a student became disruptive in the Innovation Center. In order for our administrators to address the needs of the student, the other children in the Innovation Center were relocated. Those in Mrs. Addante’s class returned to their classroom and continued learning there while the Tech Ninja Club students also returned to their classrooms because lunchtime was coming to an end. The student’s needs were met and the student will continue to receive the support needed moving forward.

I thank our students and staff members for following directions and remaining calm as they transitioned between learning spaces. Thanks to their cooperation, all students and staff members remained safe, and the impact on student learning was minimal.

I know situations like these can bring forth questions from students, so I want to ensure you are aware of the circumstances. Please contact me at or 630-588-6400 if you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter.
