Vikings Counselor, Therapist, and Nurse Support:

Please go to our counselor, therapist, and nurse’s webpages at https://www.peoriapublicschools.org/Domain/1851 or email them at michaura.gordon@psd150.org (counselor), katy.pitman@psd150.org (therapist), and keith.vaughn@psd150.org (nurse).

Technology:

  • All requests for laptops must go through the process at www.psd150.org
  • PSD150 Transportation will arrange a delivery schedule
  • Call 693-4418 for inquiries
  • Your patience is appreciated on delivery
  • If you have tried to get the Comcast internet service for free and have been denied for a reason other than an old bill in their name, please send Kristen.musgrove@psd150.org following information to me for that family:
  • Parent name who applied for the help
  • The application number that they received from Comcast
  • The address that they are trying to get service for
  • How long they have been at that address number
  • Student names, grade, and school

We have come across some situations where the parent cannot get service due to reasons other than an old bill in their name and are in connection with Comcast to get these issues resolved. 

  • Also, for any seniors who need internet or are waiting for it to be installed, please send me their information as well:
  • Name
  • Address
  • Phone number
  • Date of installation
  • Email address

 Food:

  • Food is distributed at certain sites throughout the district, with pick-up available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10:00 – 11:30 daily

 Shelter in Place:

  • With the State mandated Shelter in Place through April 30 and warm weather approaching, please protect us all so we can get through this difficult time by ensuring all families and students are strictly following the social distancing and gathering guidelines. We have seen non-related students together in cars and other places within the 6 ft. guidelines. This is dangerous and reckless. Please step up and say no if needed to your teenagers inquiring about gatherings, house visits, group workouts, etc.

Weekly Parent Communication:

If you know any parents/students who have not bee receiving my weekly communications, please have them email thomas.bruch@psd150.org to restore for them to receive my voicemails and email communications.
