Honoring Our Veterans Project

The fifth grade students and staff will be Honoring Our Veterans with a "Veterans' Wall" Wednesday, May 21 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm in the main gym. In the fall of 2009, the fifth grade students created a special project establishing the Veterans' Wall. This was a project of the Fifth Grade Patriot Club. The goal was to collect information on approximately 25 veterans and recgonize them with a Veterans' Wall. They collected information with over 340 stories and photos of area veterans. It was an emotinal and rewarding experience.

The fifth grade is once again initiating a community-wide effort to update and expand the Veterans' Wall. Please assist with this special project. Students will be gathering information over the next six weeks from parents/guardians, family members, and community members. Please help make this project a success and help them recognize those who are serving and have served our armed forces.

If you have questions or seek more information about the "Honoring our Veterans Project" please call the Elementary Office(635-3831) or email

We would like to acknowledge our fifth grade students and teachers Mrs. Best, Mr. Smiddy, and Mrs. Spickerman for this special project to recognize our Veterans.

School Calendar Update and Closing of School

As of Monday, January 13, 2014 our school has been closed 6 student attendance days due to inclement weather and hazardous road conditions.  Our 2013-2014 School Calendar allows for 5 emergency days.  Days off beyond the 5 emergency days are considered “Act of God” days as when the (school) district must close due to a condition beyond the control of the school district that poses a hazardous threat to the health and safety of the students and all the proposed Emergency Days built into the Proposed Calendar have been used.

Our last day of student attendance will be Thursday, May 29, 2014.  The last day will be from 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.  High School Graduation will be Friday, May 23 at 7:00 p.m.  Eighth Grade promotion will be Thursday, May 29th at 9:10 a.m.  Our school district is approximately 86 square miles.  We run 8 regular bus routes and 40% + of our 1300 students are eligible bus riders.  When considering the closing of school due to a condition beyond the control of the school district the safety of all our students is first and foremost in the decision process.  The rural bus routes(country roads) and bus turn arounds(some are private lanes) are evaluated to assist in the decision process.

Staunton Community Unit School District #6 insures equal opportunities are offered to students, regardless of race, color, national origins, age, gender, religion, or disability. Board of Education policies are in place, designated to eliminate the existence of any barriers regarding accessibility and/or participation in any programs, including career and technical education (vocational) programs.

Questions regarding educational opportunities may be directed to: Kyle A. Hlafka, Superintendent, Staunton CUSD #6, 801 N. Deneen St., Staunton, IL 62088 (618-635-2962).
