Dear Farnsworth Parents, Families and Community Members,

Tomorrow is our Spring Report Card Pick Up. It is a fantastic opportunity for parents to meet with their child’s teacher(s) to discuss the child’s progress. Please make every effort to attend as report cards cannot be sent home.

As the warm weather approaches, we have been having an increasingly large problem with dogs on the playground and property. They are often unleashed and are leaving a mess on the children’s playground and on the field. Please know that dogs are not allowed on school property at any time. Please be advised that the Chicago Police Department will be patrolling the area after school and on the weekends. We would
appreciate your cooperation in keeping dogs off the playground and field.

Please remember, my door is always open.

Mrs. Barbara E. OKen
Principal, Farnsworth School
