  • 1st Day Health Compliance

    Switch to 1st day compliance requirements for 2016-2017 Peoria Public Schools switches to 1st day compliance requirements for 2016-2017 On January 25, 2016, the Board of Education approved an update to Board Policy 7:100, requiring health documentation compliance by the first day of school. Students not in compliance by the first day of school (August 17, 2016), will not be allowed to start the school year until all health documentation requirements are met. The policy update is a switch from the October 15th deadline the District has used for several years. District staff is working on a plan to update registration requirements and add registration events prior to the start of the school year in an effort to decrease the number of families that are non-compliant. This school year, approximately 600 students were non-compliant on the October 15th deadline. Families are strongly encouraged to schedule health appointments now, so that documentation can be prepared and turned in to your school, avoiding first day compliance issues. Download the District's health requirements flyer for health information, recommended service providers and other services that can assist families through this process.

  • ReAd EvErYdAy and make it a HaBiT!

    EVERY DAY from 7:40 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. all students and teachers will participate in Sustained Silent Reading in their Homeroom. This time will give students a chance to read for pleasure, as well as increasing their reading abilities. We believe that having daily time set aside for reading will set the tone for all that we do at Mark Bills. This is not a study hall and not an advisory time. No classwork will be done by students. No grading will be done by teachers. Remember that this is SILENT reading. Students and Teachers will not talk or disturb others for the entire reading time! Everyone should bring a book to read every day, however, each Homeroom will have reading materials available.
