Principal's Corner

September 26, 2023

Dear New Field families,

As we approach the end of September it is important to be aware of two very important deadlines: Family Income Forms and Student Medical Compliance are due on Friday, September 29.

Family Income Forms help our school receive federal funding that goes straight towards staffing, books, consumable materials and more. Every form counts because every form equals money for our school!

Student Medical compliance is also critically important. New Field must achieve over 95% of students compliant with all state-mandated vaccinations and health physical exams. We have a number of students and staff members that are immuno-compromised and count on us to be fully vaccinated. Medical compliance keeps our whole school healthy and well. Medical compliance is an Illinois State Law and CPS Policy.

Any families that are not yet compliant received a follow up letter from our main office today, sent home in student backpacks. Please ensure your child is up-to-date on all mandatory health requirements. Proof of an upcoming appointment also counts for health compliance. If you have an appointment scheduled, please email or bring proof of your child's appointment to our main office. If you have questions please contact our main office directly, 773-534-2760 or

Thank you for your assistance in meeting these two very important deadlines.


Mrs. Conrey Callahan

Principal, New Field ES
