The Illinois FFA Service Project this year is called "The Crayon Initiative." This project takes donations in the form of used crayons, recycles them, and makes new crayons to be distributed to children's hospitals across the nation. Their goal this year is to collect 2,000 pounds of crayons. Bourbonnais Elementary would like to help the Manteno FFA organization to reach this goal. Starting on Monday, May 14th, collection bins will be placed in the front offices of our buildings including the central office. We want to encourage teachers, students and parents to donate used crayons to this cause. Often times crayons are thrown out when kids are cleaning their desks. Parents and community members are encouraged to drop them off at the Central Office. The initiative will continue through Thursday, May 31st. Thanks!

Liberty, LeVasseur, and BUGC are back to normal operations. Law enforcement has resolved the issue in the area. Schools were not at risk, simply putting student safety first at all times.

There is no direct threat to BESD#53 schools, the building restrictions are a precaution due to a law enforcement investigation in the area.

Liberty, BUGC, and LeVasseur are currently on building restrictions (what we used to call soft lockdown). Instruction continues but no children outside, and no visitors admitted into the building.
