Strike Ends, Classes Resume Tomorrow
Community Alert: Robberies
Ward Night
Dear Neighbors,

Effective tomorrow, classes will resume at Chicago Public Schools. This afternoon a compromise agreement was reached between the Chicago Teachers Union and Chicago Public Schools. 

This is a positive development and I look forward to students returning to the classroom tomorrow.

The Lincoln Park High School Lions Football Team will now be able to play its Illinois State High School Association playoff game against Rolling Meadows at 1 p.m. Saturday. We wish them the best. Go Lions!
