Stagg High School

Principal’s Letter

Dear Stagg Families,

We have had a great start to the school year and are looking forward to the beginning of fall. There are many events and activities at Stagg including athletic events, band and choral concerts, theatrical performances and academic competitions.  Stagg is a very busy place and we hope to see you at one of our many events.

School safety is always a priority at Stagg High School and District 230.  We recognize that in order for instruction to take place and be effective, students must feel that they are cared for and their safety is important to the adults entrusted with their care.  There are many ways that Stagg High School works to provide a safe environment for students, but we also recognize that parents and students play a vital role in maintaining a safe school.  No one group can do this alone, we must all work together.

The following are safety tips and requirements that we ask all parents and students to follow while on our campus:

Safety Coming To and From School

  • Traffic on campus has improved greatly, however, entry onto the campus can be difficult, particularly at the entrance on 111th. The entrance off of Roberts Road is also available for student drop off and we encourage parents to consider using this entrance for student drop off.
  • Give yourself enough time when driving to and from school.  If everyone tries to drop off their child at 7:50 a.m. there will be delays.  Our commons area is supervised beginning at 7:30 a.m., so feel free to drop off students between 7:30 and 7:50 a.m.
  • Students should NEVER be dropped off on the street or street side, this includes on 111th Street and Roberts Road.
  • Students should ALWAYS cross at the crosswalk at 111th and Roberts Road, this includes students who use the parking lot at New Beginnings Church.
  • There are NO U-turns on Roberts Road.
  • Students should never run across 111th Street in front of the school building.  Palos Hills Police will be ticketing students who do not cross at the crosswalk.
  • Students must have school IDs to get on school buses.
  • Cellphones are not to be used in school parking lots.

Medications and Health Concerns

  • Any and all prescription/over-the-counter medication must be kept in the Nurse’s Office with a doctor’s prescription.
  • Students may not carry prescription or over-the-counter medications on their person or in their locker while at school.
  • The Nurse’s Office must be made aware of any medical condition that requires assistance in moving about the building.

School Building Security

  • Stagg High School has a School Resource Officer (SRO) in the building every school day.  Palos Hills Police Detective Al Williams is a great resource and assists our students and staff in maintaining a safe environment.
  • Stagg High School encourages students, staff, parents and community members to SAY Something if you see or hear anything that could be a threat to the safety of an individual, the school, or the community.  Students at Stagg know that Say Something means to contact a trusted adult if they ever have any concerns.
  • Students are required to have their school IDs with them at all times.
  • During school hours, all visitors must enter through the North Door Security Station.
  • If you would like to meet with a staff member or administration, you must have an appointment.  Please make sure you arrange for an appointment ahead of time.
  • Remind your child that they should NEVER let any student or adult into the building.
  • Contact the Deans’ Office is you have any concerns.
  • Stagg High School has a Tip Line that is checked daily.  The number is 708-974-7400 EXT 7222.

School safety is everyone’s business and we welcome the partnership with staff, students and parents in making Stagg High School a safe learning environment!

Have a great year and GO Chargers!

Eric A. Olsen
