Fact Checking Information

The February 21, 2019 article in the DesPlaines Valley News titled “SD 103 Puts Lincoln School Principal on Paid Leave” has a lot of false information.

A recent post suggested that there was a crack drug situation at GWMS on February 19, 2019

 

Clarification:  This is false information.

 

 

 

 

 

This was posted on Facebook Regarding the District Having School on Jan. 28:

 

Schools in District 103 ARE OPEN! I have been receiving many calls from parents this morning saying buses never came for their kids or they haven’t been able to get in contact with the School District regarding schools being open.

 

Even as a board member my calls have not been answered to the Administration or Superintendent.  Unfortunately communication is NOT a priority for our District.  We need change.

 

Jorge Torres

SD 103 School Board Member

 

Here are the correct facts regarding Jan. 28:

 

·        Communication IS a PRIORITY.  The announcement regarding school being open was communicated and on our website.

 

·        We received parent phone calls. It is not true that they could not get in touch with the school district.

 

·        Some buses, as you would expect on a snowy day, were late.

 

·        Mr. Torres never received a return call from the superintendents because he NEVER placed the call.  There are no messages from him on any of our answering machines.
