Have an idea...maybe you could get all businesses offering carry out foods to say what hygiene and safety practices they have in place to prevent the spread of germs. I think it would help promote their carry out business. Far too many people are skeptical about carry outs. I think we’re in this for a while. ... See MoreSee Less

This is a great thing to help families. Is there any option to help the kids whose parents still have to work during those times? I understand why the students should be there yet it makes it incredibly difficult for parents who still have to work to load up kids get them there then home unload and get to work. My high schooler could walk but she'd have to walk her young siblings across main streets to get to the schools.

MEDICATION PICK-UP
If your child has medications at school, it is important that you make arrangements to pick them up today. Nurses/staff will be avaiable unmtil 3:00 PM at Carl Sandburg, Freeport Middle School and Freeport High School; and until 4:00 PM at the elementary schools.

Cuz they’re prob closed longer than that. Funny timing w the electronics survey being sent out last week. ???

If they will be going back-why do they need to pick it up?

And this is how to get their learning packets aswell??

Dear FSD Families and Staff,

As we continue to experience a heightened awareness of the realities of what the current public health crisis has brought to our community, it is with a heavy heart and sincere apologies that I have made the decision to cancel school for students tomorrow, Monday, March 16th.

A few minutes ago, it was brought to my attention that we will not be able to meet the demands of transporting students to and from school due to a shortage of bus drivers. I know this news comes as a huge inconvenience to many of our families and providing you this information now instead of waiting until early morning will help you make necessary plans for childcare.

Tomorrow's school cancelation for students will be considered an Emergency Day, which means we will not have to make it up at the end of the school year. FSD Staff will still be expected to report to work tomorrow.

Teachers in grades K-12 have prepared emergency learning plans (E-learning) and/or enrichment activities that your child/children might be able to do during the mandatory school closure from March 17-30.

These assignments will be posted on our district website. As per the Illinois School Board of Education (ISBE) guidance, these assignments are not graded. It is meant to provide students the opportunity to continue learning from home. The following week, March 23-27 will remain as our spring break.

Students and staff will return to school on Tuesday, March 31. Should this change, I will make sure that you receive communication in a timely manner.

We will be posting information regarding grab and go food distribution through our website, phone call, and email blast.

We appreciate your understanding during these unsettling times.

Thank you,

Anna Alvarado, Superintendent

Why are people so angry ? First our school district is following what the State of Illinois has mandated. Second THIS is all precautions ! Our children were already going to be off for spring break in a week. A week as been added to stay home and avoid any spreading of a virus only seems reasonable. Can we all just stop and try to be kind to one another ?

Will the schools be continued to be closed until April 6th as the governor just announced Last night

What about handing in the fundraiser

What about showtime? This is the worst senior year ever for me🥺

When will Seniors find out what the emergency meeting at 11 today was going to be about?

If you provide childcare the kids are still going to be with each other

Are we going to be updated for when exactly we'll be back?

Cindy ErbCindy I'm sure you have seen this. Just making sure.

Had that the other night great chicken and the best coleslaw I’ve had in awhile you could just sell that and I’d be happy

The online ordering is so easy to use! We had the chicken on Wednesday & it was so good! Has the fish last night & it hit the spot.

We have used the online ordering feature twice this week. We had the family pasta with Alfredo sauce and chicken and we had fish and burgers last night. It’s quick and easy to use. A bonus is you get to see some of your favorite members of Logan’s wait staff when you pick it up!

Definitely love the online ordering

Best chicken ever!

For those who attended and purchased items, we ask that you check your items to see if we inadvertently put a gift certificate for Grand Harbor Resort in your basket/package. It is missing and we are trying to find it. If you find that it was accidentally put with your package, can you please message the Fans Club and we will make arrangements to pick it up, please?

Again, we thank you for your amazing support and will report back when we have final numbers!!

All levels of state qualifications and finishes are so fantastic, but what you may not be aware of with swimming and diving, is that there is only 1 "class" in the entire state. So Joe didn't finish 23rd in his "class", which would have been no small accomplishment on its own, he finished 23rd in the ENTIRE state of Illinois for diving.

Thank you for the update.

Time to get swole quick then.

For those eating low carb... Today's special at Hilldale Deli can be converted to an awesome lunch.
Simply ask for NO CHIPS, and make this as a salad.

Freeport Fire

Social News

Freeport Fire DepartmentAt 5:37 am, the Freeport Fire Department responded to a manufactured home fire located at 2044 W. Galena Ave, Lot 23. Upon arrival, fire department units found the mobile home to have heavy fire and smoke showing with over 50% of the structure involved in fire. One female occupant had self-evacuated, and one male occupant was trapped in a back bedroom. The female occupant suffered smoke inhalation and was transported to FHN by the Freeport Police Department. Firefighting crews rescued a male occupant from the rear bedroom. He was transported to FHN, where he was later pronounced dead. His identity is being withheld pending notification of family and an autopsy. The fire was extinguished entirely in less than an hour. Freeport Police and Fire Department called in the Office of the State Fire Marshall and the Illinois State Police Crime Scene Investigator to assist in the fire scene examination. Preliminary determination is that the fire originated in the kitchen and was caused by unattended cooking. The Stephenson County Coroner’s Office will be conducting the death investigation. They will release the identity of the deceased male when they have completed their investigation. The trailer and all of its contents are a total loss. There were no working smoke detectors in the home at the time of the fire. The survivor is being assisted by the FHN, the American Red Cross, and the Salvation Army. Her identity is being withheld per the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The department will not be holding a press conference at this time. Fire Chief Bradley Liggett ...

Be weather aware today! Keep an eye to the sky!BREAKING: The Storm Prediction Center has once again upgraded the risk for severe weather over most of the Stateline. The Level 4 Moderate Risk area has been expanded north and east, as has the Level 3 Enhanced Risk area, which now includes the City of Rockford, as well as Freeport and Belvidere. The main severe weather threat for our area will be between 2 and 8pm. The folks at the Storm Prediction Center state that "A significant severe weather outbreak is expected for portions of the Midwest this afternoon and evening." In analyzing the latest model data I see no reason to disagree with this assessment. All modes of severe weather are in play, including tornadoes, some of which could be large, long-track tornadoes. This would be most likely south of Interstate 88, but still a possibility anywhere in our area. Very large hail is also possible along with wind gusts of 60mph or greater. The Storm Prediction Center also hints at the possibility of an upgrade to a nearly unprecedented High Risk in parts of Illinois later in the day. Let me be abundantly clear! The purpose of this post is not to scare anyone. Rather, the purpose of this post is to make sure everyone is aware of the potential threats. Take a few moments in the morning to discuss your severe weather plan, and be ready to implement it if need be later in the day. Be weather aware! Have multiple, credible ways to receive warnings if and when they are issued. Lastly, stay tuned! The 23 Storm Team will be working for you throughout the day to make sure you're safe! ...

I don’t know about anyone else but I think we could make this happen with a “board” of “directors” ... just curious.... who would commit? And I don’t mean, yeah I’ll help and then not show up or help! If everyone is bummed and wants to see it happen, who’s in for the long haul??? Comment below ⬇️

Oh man I was looking forward to the sales. Helps attract people

You see, I have a special needs daughter, she has a speech disability. We stopped at a sale where they were selling books, comic books, DVD's, and records. The people who were holding the sale were extremely understanding, kind, and helpful with my husband, my daughter, and myself. I wish I knew their names, but I do not. We spent a good amount of money there partly because they were so awesome. If those people read this, I want to say thank you so very much. We appreciate it more than you know. ... See MoreSee Less

I have some letters and a postcard that acquired a few years ago when I bought some things at an auction. The postcard is addressed to A.A. Krape in Lena dated 12-31-1919. also a letter to the same dated March 20 1907. Plus another letter w/o an envelope dated 1877, addressed to Mr. A Krape and is from Geo. E Knepper (sp?).

We have some wonderful homemade cookies left from our Christmas Tea this past Sunday. We have divided them up into trays of at least 18 cookies and are selling them for $6 a tray or 2 for $10. There is a good selection in each, and great if you need something to bring to a holiday party (or if you just love cookies)! You can come by the museum gift shop today through Sunday, noon to 4PM, to purchase some, or give us a call at 815-232-8419 for other times we are here. Supplies are very limited; call if you would like to have us hold some for you! ... See MoreSee Less
