09/30/2021 Important Message from District 89

September 30, 2021

Dear District 89 families,

The health and safety of our students is our top priority. This letter is to inform you that a student, while walking to the bus stop this morning near Lake Street and 7th Avenue, reported a “suspicious” individual. The police were immediately notified, and a report was made. The Police Departments in our communities will provide additional presence outside the schools in our District.

We ask for your support in the following ways:

  • Have a discussion with your child about safety and unfamiliar people
  • Assure he or she is aware of surroundings (not on their cell phones or listening to loud music on headphones)
  • Walk in pairs or in a group when possible
  • Encourage him or her to report any suspicious activity to a trusted adult

If you have any further questions, please feel free to call my office. Thank you for your support and assistance in keeping our students safe.


Dr. David Negron
