Board President's Message

Mrs. Darlene Gray Everett

Dear Dolton School District 149 Family,


On behalf of the Board of Education, I want to personally acknowledge each parent for your patience, dedication, and understanding.  This COVID19 pandemic has been a devastating time for our school district community and families.  We miss our children dearly and hope we will get through this storm, so that everyone can be together again soon.


Our mission as a Board and school district is to educate the whole child which provides a nurturing, safe and orderly learning environment, where children can grow and learn to become successful members of the community. I know forms of communication may sometimes sound repetitive.  Please understand that student learning is one of our main goals, but if they are hungry then, learning will never take place. What we have come to realize, through these challenging times, is that everyone is not in the same place in life. 


Governor Pritzker has demanded that all schools shutdown until April 30, 2020. We are mandated to abide by his Executive Orders. To ensure our parents and community are kept abreast, we have put the following District resources in place: the phone blast, the website, and the District 149 Facebook page in collaboration with our Public Relations representative who continues to keep us updated on daily statistics and information.


Please continue to be patient with us through the new Remote/E-Learning program.  We want to encourage each of you to continue to support our efforts of building a strong caring community where children come first.


Thank you in Advance, 


We Believe…

Darlene Gray-Everett

School Board President
