BUGC Announcements

  • 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.

    Dear Parent(s) / Guardian(s):


    To provide enhanced safety and security for BUGC students, the following procedures have been established for all zero hour students.


    The foyer will open beginning at 6:15 am to provide zero hour students a safe and dry place to enter.  The main doors into the building will open at 6:45 am to allow students to proceed to their zero hour PE class.  The doors will again be secured at 6:50 am.  Class begins at 6:50 am.  Students late to zero hour will not be allowed into class.


    As a reminder, physical education is a State of Illinois mandated class.  Students are expected to attend each day.  Students who are enrolled in zero hour PE will not be able to drop this class nor have their scheduled changed.

    Zero hour begins on Wednesday, August 20th. 

    If you have any questions, please contact me at (815) 929-5291.


    Thank you,


    Daniel Chamernik
