Due to the recommended restrictions for in-person gatherings in Suburban Cook County, District 106 would like to provide our community with two ways to comment at the meeting.
Option #1: Written Comment Form
Board members will read each submitted statement, however, these comments are not read aloud at the meeting.
This form will stop accepting submissions at 4:00 pm on Tuesday in order to allow sufficient time to process and submit them to the Board of Education.
Option #2: Speak at the meeting
Please arrive at the LaGrange Highlands LRC and enter the requested information on the “Participation Sign-In” form.
During the Communication, Visitor Comments, and Participation Agenda item, you will be called to the podium to make your statement.

With the recent emergency approval of the Pfizer 2-shot COVID-19 for children 12 and up, we have worked with our township partner districts to coordinate a vaccination clinic.
To that end, a vaccination clinic will be hosted at Lyons Township High School’s South Campus. The vaccine will be administered through Albertsons (parent company of Jewel). The first shots are scheduled May 24 in the LTHS South Campus fieldhouse. The second dose will be administered at LTHS South Campus on June 14.
This is not a walk-in event, and pre-registration is required. Register HERE to make an appointment. Your June 14 appointment will be the same time of day as your May 24 appointment time, and to register, you must be available both days. Masks and social distancing are required at the vaccination site. The vaccine is free, but you may be asked to share your health insurance card.
While we recognize that the decision to vaccinate your child(ren) is personal, we want to provide you with options if you choose to vaccinate.
We are fortunate to offer this opportunity to our families, and we thank the administrative team at Lyons Township High School for coordinating and hosting this event.
