The administration and School Resource Officer immediately began investigating, contacted local authorities, and has handled the situation. There is no immediate threat to student safety. Parents involved have been notified and the District is taking precautionary efforts in order to ensure the safety of our students.

District 37 will begin, this week, the state-wide student assessment, called the Illinois Assessment of Readiness. All 3rd - 8th grade students are required to take this assessment. Your child's teacher will inform you of the dates on which your child will be testing. There are 3 sessions of math and two session of English/Language Arts. This assessment is important, but we do not want students to be fearful, upset, or apprehensive over it. We simply want them to give their best efforts.
During the next two weeks, please be sure to: get plenty of sleep the night before, be on time and in attendance, eat a good breakfast (at home or school), and give your best effort academically and behaviorally. Any student absent during a test day will be required to make tests up.
We realize, and understand, that no one is excited about these tests. However, at the same time, they are mandated, and are important in preparing for high school and beyond, so we want to perform to the best of our ability. Our faculty and staff have worked hard to prepare students, as best possible, and are genuinely concerned for the welfare and success of our students. We are also very proud of our students for their efforts and hard work in preparing for the IAR. Should you have questions about the test, please feel free to contact the office. Thank you for partnering with us in this effort.

The Board of Education has become aware of some concerns that are being posted on Facebook regarding student safety. Anna CCSD #37 has always and will continue to keep student safety at the forefront of our concerns. In annual meetings with the Sheriff’s department, the local fire department, the ambulance service, and Anna PD, the District reviews the safety plan and addresses areas for improvement. Most recently, the District has purchased secondary door locks for each classroom. Although these devices have not been able to be installed yet, it is important to note that outside doors are always locked on all of our buildings and each door is equipped with surveillance cameras that can be viewed on multiple command centers throughout the district. Each classroom door also has a lock. These secondary locks are an extra safety measure, but students and staff can lock down in their classrooms by utilizing the lock that is already installed on the classroom doors. We are in the process of reviewing the best way to get the secondary locks installed in a timely manner while also ensuring this is done properly. It is also important to note that staff members and local police departments will need to be trained on the use of these secondary locks before they can be used. The District is dedicated to ensuring our students are safe and will continue to plan and upgrade where needed.
