Dr. Shelly Davis-Jones

Dear Parents and Guardians:


Dolton School District 149 will administer the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) exam beginning on March 15, 2021 through May 15, 2021 to all students in grades 3-8 in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics.  The Federal law requires the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) to administer these assessments to all students who attend public schools in the state.  Students will only come to school on their scheduled testing days.  Students will continue their normal remote learning schedule on non-testing days.


Just a gentle reminder, if you, your child or any member in the household is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or tested positive for COVID-19 please do not send your child or children to school.  You must quarantine your family for 14 days, contact a physician and contact your child’s school to report any COVID-19 cases.  If you or any one in your house hold is suffering from COVID-19 your child must have a COVID-19 test before returning back to school from quarantine.  If you need to speak with your child’s principal or school nurse we are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am – 4:00 pm.


The District will provide transportation using our existing bus stops in both the AM and PM testing sessions for each schools designated bus routes.  If you are choosing to transport your child to and from school, please adhere to the scheduled arrival and dismissal times.  Upon arrival to school all students will be given mid-morning snack before testing and they will be given a bag lunch to take home with them at dismissal.


Please encourage your child to wear his or her mask at all times and practice social distancing.  This means no touching, hugging or shaking hands with classmates and friends.  Your support will continue to help us mitigate any potential spread of the contagious virus.


If you need more detailed information about your child’s school log in to our website at www.sd149.org and click on schools and find your child’s school for further information.



We Believe. . . Excellence, Humanization and Pride!





Dr. Shelly Davis Jones, Superintendent
