Stagg High School

Principal's Message


 

Dear Chargers,

 

Amos Alonzo Stagg High School is always busy, but never quite as busy as the final months of the school year.  While students and teachers are preparing for high-stakes tests, final examinations, and end-of-year projects, Administration is busy preparing for next year!


The information we gather above assists in formulating and tracking the progress of goals and objectives, but ultimately our focus is the individual learner.  The experience each student has in our school is what defines Stagg as an academic institution. If you have any questions regarding school improvement initiatives, or our progress on goals and activities, please do not hesitate to contact Administration.


As we prepare for the next school year, we are working closely with local first responders and safety experts to continuously improve our facilities, procedures and practices.  We completed a safety audit with Palos Hills Police and are currently reviewing recommendations made through this process. The continuous improvement model allows for short and long term planning and you may notice some changes in both facility security and security procedures.  As always, our nationally recognized “Say Something” program is the best proactive measure we can take as a community. “Say Something” does not end with the close of the school year, it is active 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. There is always a trusted adult to say something to, whether it is your child’s coach, summer school teacher, religious leader and of course law enforcement.  Together, we make a difference.


Stagg High School is committed to providing important information to the communities we serve.  If you are a member of a community organization who would like Stagg to come out and speak about a variety of topics important to your organization, feel free to contact the principal’s office at 708-974-7410 or by email at eolsen@d230.org.  I, or any member of our administrative team, would be happy to participate in community and organization discussions related to our school, our students, and the communities we serve.


Finally, please remember to complete your Annual Residency Verification for the 2018-2019 school year.  Students who do not complete this before school ends run the risk of losing course requests to students who have the process completed. As a parent, one of the most important things you can do is review your contact information with the school. Please check this information for accuracy in Skyward.  In addition, the State of Illinois requires an additional Meningococcal vaccination for all senior students. Please contact the Guidance Office if you have any questions regarding residency verification and our Health Office regarding vaccinations.


With the end of the school year approaching fast, on behalf of the Stagg staff, we would like to wish all of our families a safe and enjoyable summer break.

 

Eric A. Olsen
Principal
