Mead: 8th Grade Student Material Pick Up / Drop Off

Dear Eighth Grade Families,

I hope everyone was able to enjoy the nice weather this weeked!  Working with the District 54 Cabinet, we have created a process for students to pick up and drop off all materials at Mead. When coming to Mead, students and parents must adhere to social distancing guidelines. At all times, individuals should keep 6 feet of distance from others and wear personal masks.  Students and parents will be given the opportunity to visit Mead TWICE during the month of May to pick-up and drop-off materials.  Please see below for information about our Material Pick-Up and Drop-Off process.

  • On May 14, 15 or 18, you need to sign up for a time to clean out your child’s hallway locker (please click on the link here or see the link below to sign up) and pick-up the following items:
