We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works.
That’s why our entire school joined in on the largest education event in history: The Hour of Code. During Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 5-9), every one of our students K-8 will be amongst over 2 million worldwide spending one half-hour learning the basics.
If you want to continue coding at home with your child, please go to https://code.org/learn. There are lots of games for readers and non-readers, beginner coders to experts, all grade levels for all devices.

Morning Arrival Time
For safety and security reasons, our school doors are not open until 7:30 AM each morning. Supervision of our gymnasium (where a majority of our students go to each morning), hallways, LRC, and classrooms begins at 7:30 AM. We cannot allow students to be unsupervised at any time. Please time your arrival at school with the opening of the doors at 7:30 AM or later. Thank you.
Also, as per Board policy 8:30, all visitors to the school buildings during regular school hours are required to report to the Building Principal’s office and receive permission to remain on school property. All visitors must sign a visitors’ log, show identification, wear a visitor’s badge, and submit a driver’s license to be scanned. When leaving the school building, visitors must exit the building according to school policy. On those occasions when large groups of parents and friends are invited onto school property, visitors are not required to sign in but must follow school officials’ instructions. Persons on school property without permission will be directed to leave and may be subject to criminal prosecution.
Laws Regarding School Buses in Traffic
Drivers are reminded that Illinois State Law requires that you must stop before meeting or overtaking a school bus loading or unloading passengers. You must remain stopped until the stop signal arm is no longer extended and the flashing lights are turned off. This law applies to when our school buses have their stop arms out in the morning when students are dropped off and after school when the buses are loading. Penalties include a fine of $150 and a three month drivers license suspension.

LJHS "Tip Line"
We now have a Lisle Junior High School Tip Line. This anonymous phone line will allow students and/or parents to leave a voicemail message to alert school officials to incidents including, but not limited to, bullying, potential violence, use or sale of drugs, weapons in the school, or other matters directly related to our school and students. Efforts will be placed on confidentiality and concerns will be addressed in a timely manner.
The purpose of this tip line is to enhance and to provide a safe and orderly school environment, stopping problems before they start, and addressing situations quickly. All we ask is that the calls are truthful, factual, and express a genuine concern that is not vindictive in nature. The "Tip Line" number is 630-493-8212 and can be accessed 24 hours a day.
24-Hour Attendance Line
If your student is absent from school please telephone BEFORE 8:00 AM each day. Our attendance line is active 24 HOURS A DAY. So you may call this number anytime during the evening or night if you know your student will not be in school.
