Medical Compliance

Medical Compliance

Chicago Public Schools requires that your child is medically prepared to attend school. All students are required to have a complete record of all immunizations. If your child is not in medical compliance, you will receive a Health Services Needed Notice in the students email. I strongly recommend that you take notice to your healthcare provider to receive the appropriate medical services. Documentation from the provider must be emailed to the school. You can have your healthcare provider fax proof of your appointment and/or proof of medical services to Harold Washington Elementary School at (773) 535-6277. If your child is reporting to Pre-K, Kindergarten, Fifth, Sixth, and/or Eighth grade check with your healthcare provider to make sure they have complete immunization records.
The first date for compliance is Wednesday, September 30, 2020.

Attend to Achieve!

Attendance Policy Harold Washington School recognizes that daily attendance is critical to academic achievement. It is our goal to work with students, families and communities to support regular school attendance and improve academic achievement. It is important that your scholar attends school daily!

Welcome to the 2020 - 2021 academic year!

Welcome to the 2020 - 2021 academic year!
Our commitment at Harold Washington Elementary School is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century. HWES has been busy preparing for another amazing year. This summer a new recreation space has been under construction. Over the summer break the school has been cleaned and totally refreshed. However, due COVID-19 we are starting the school year learning from home.
CPS Will Begin the School Year on Tuesday, September 8, 2020 with a Full Remote Learning Model With All Students Receiving Real-Time Instruction Every School Day. The district will implement remote learning through the first quarter and work with CDPH to determine if it is safe to open with a hybrid learning model in the second quarter.

Enhanced Standards for Remote Learning and Digital Learning for All Students

In order to provide a more stable and high-quality remote learning experience for students, the district will be enacting new requirements for learning, including ensuring every K-8 teacher and student will be engaged for the entirety of the school day, with students receiving real-time instruction every day. Additionally, all students will have access to and participate in digital learning.
