School Closures For Summer Air Conditioning Project and Building Contact Information

Dear D105 Parents/Guardians:


It is hard to believe that we are just weeks away from the summer. I am excited to share that our summer air conditioning project is set to begin on time. Due to the nature of the project, we will need to close Gurrie, Hodgkins, Ideal and Spring Avenue buildings for the summer months.


During the summer, all school administrative assistants and administrative staff will be working out of the District Office/Seventh Avenue School (since the building is already air-conditioned and will not be under construction). The District Office/Seventh Avenue School is located at 701 S. Seventh Avenue,La Grange, IL 60525. The contact information for administrative assistants and administrators will remain the same. For assistance with school registration, please contact your school’s administrative assistant. 


Gurrie Middle School:  708-482-2720
Principal: Mr. Ed Hood (through June 30th)
Principal:  Ms. Lorena Mendoza
Administrative Assistant:  Ms. Jessica Fulgencio  

Hodgkins Elementary School:  708-482-2740
Principal: Ms. Svetlana Popovic
Administrative Assistant: Mrs. Beverly Milsap
Administrative Assistant:  Ms. Maria Almaguer

Ideal Elementary School   708-482-2750
Principal: Mrs. Eilidh Hall
Administrative Assistant: Mrs. Marbella Marinez

Principal: Mrs. Erin Hall
Administrative Assistant:  Mrs. Kathy McHugh

We are hoping that the school offices are the first areas of the building to be reopened.  Once we have the approval to reoccupy these spaces, we will send a notice via ParentSqaure.

We are planning to host several summer programs at Seventh Avenue School and to utilize some outdoor spaces (weather permitting). Additional communication regarding these programs will be forthcoming.
