  • For the safety of Bourbonnais Upper Grade students, all parents who drive and pick up student(s) must use the parking lot located between the Bourbonnais Upper Grade Center and the Central Office Administration Building.  When dropping off or picking up students, please pull all of the way up the curb adjacent to the baseball field. (toward Central Office)  This will help with traffic on John Casey Road and provides students a safe walking area to the school.  If you have any questions, please contact the Bourbonnais Upper Grade Office at (815) 929-5200 or email me at chamernikd@besd53.org

    Thank you for your cooperation and dedication to help keep our students safe.
