Welcome to Homewood School District #153!

Our website is your gateway to information about Homewood’s public schools grades Pre-K through 8. We invite you to visit frequently for the latest news and information.

Marshfield Street Closure Will Not Impact School Busses

The Village of Homewood is planning to repair a pipe on Marshfield Street between Willow Road and 184th Place. This section of Marshfield street will be closed during this time. The project is scheduled to start November 3rd and last for approximately 4 weeks.

We have reviewed the road closure plans and are happy to report we will not have to change any of our existing stops.

The busses will simply reroute around Gladville & 184th Place, resulting in the same stop assigned for the students.

District 153 Would Lose Under Pending Education Funding Reform Bill

Senate Bill 16, the School Funding Report Act of 2014, passed the Illinois Senate in May and currently is pending in the House of Representatives. The bill may be considered in November.

Homewood School District 153 stands to lose about $775,000, which translates to a loss of 17% of our state education funds. Our $775,000 loss would be redistributed to other school districts throughout the state should this bill become law. This would be a financial blow to District 153 on top of the fact that there has been no increase in state education funding for the past seven years.

We hope you will take a few minutes to learn more about SB16 and then contact your local legislators to express your concern on this potential loss in educational funds. (Our local State Senators Toi Hutchinson and Napolean Harris both voted in favor of the bill last May.)

An Important Message from the School Nurses

The respiratory ailment, Enterovirus D68, has been in the news recently. We know of no cases here in District 153.

Unfortunately, a few cases of Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease have been reported among our students.

Below is some information about both topics that we hope you find helpful.
