Food pantries receive limited donations of fresh produce. In order to meet this urgent need, the Rondout School Community Garden donates produce from the School Garden to The North Chicago Community Partners Care Closet, Midwest Veteran’s Closet and the Lake County Haven. In addition, Rondout is partnering with the Northeast Chicagoland Rotary Passport Club to add donations of produce from local Farmer’s Markets and local private gardens. Food insufficiency is a growing problem in our community and our collective efforts help support enriching the nutritional resources for families in need. Donations may be dropped off at the main entrance to the school at the times noted below. Please contact Dr. Jenny Wojcik via email at email@example.com

Dear Rondout Families,
Late on Friday February 25, 2022, the CDC (Center for Disease Control) announced that
it will no longer require people to wear masks on buses or vans operated by
public school systems.
This will take effect starting with our morning bus routes tomorrow, Monday February 28,2022.
We will continue to follow our current bus route procedures and assigned seating. Olson transportation has been notified and has informed their drivers. Masks will continue to be recommended but not required. Each family is asked to discuss their decision regarding wearing masks on the school bus with their children. We also ask everyone to continue to be respectful of the individual choices made regarding masking.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions. Thank you for your continued partnership as we navigate the continuously evolving landscape of living with COVID19 in our school and the community.
Dr. Jenny Wojcik
