UPDATE on the UPDATE:
All systems are now restored. Back to doing what we do best with full connectivity! Thanks for your patience and understanding as our staff catches up on emails and digital communications.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The electricity has been restored at Avoca West Elementary School. During the process of restoring the electricity, the telephones went out temporarily. The telephones are now working again. If you tried to call and could not get through, feel free to try again.
Though we have telephone and electricity at AW, we are unable to access the internet at the moment. If you have emailed something time sensitive to the school or your child’s teacher while the power was out, please know that your message has most likely not been received.
If you need to communicate with the school regarding something that is time sensitive, I encourage you to call them at (847) 724-6800. I will let you know when the internet is back up at Avoca West.
Thank you for your patience!
Dear Avoca West Parents and Guardians,
An area-wide power outage has knocked out the electricity at Avoca West Elementary School. Crews from Commonwealth Edison are currently working to restore power to the area.
Though we do not have electricity, we are enjoying a warm, sunny day and will continue “business as usual” to the best of our abilities.
