Dear D140 families and staff,

Grissom and Prairie View’s eighth grade graduation diploma deliveries scheduled for this week have been postponed and rescheduled beginning at 5 pm on Monday, June 8th (Grissom)  and Tuesday, June 9th (Prairie View).

We still plan to release Grissom’s graduation video this evening at 5 pm. Prairie View’s graduation video will be released on Tuesday, June 2nd at 5 pm. Parents will be emailed the video links, and students should check their Team Google Classroom page for the graduation video posting. Congratulations graduates!

Additionally, all District 140 buildings will be closed to staff, students, families, and the public on June 2nd. Staff members who had planned to work at our schools or administrative building on Tuesday, June 2nd should work remotely. 

Our eighth iPad drop off, eighth grade library book drop off, and Prairie View’s student belongings pick up have also been rescheduled for next week - June 8th, 9th, and 10th from 9 am until 2 pm.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work together to keep our community safe.

Dr. Shawn M. Olson
