Bellwood News

At Bellwood, we appreciate our involved parents and community members. We also enjoy broadcasting our latest news and information here on our News page, where we will chronicle school activities and student achievements and publish announcements. We’ll also offer helpful resources and information. So check back often, as we update it regularly.

P-EBT Update

Dear Parent or Guardian,

As you may be aware, the State of Illinois approved the Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer Program (P-EBT) benefits to all eligible Illinois students. Families in our district qualify for the P-EBT benefits because SD88 participates in the National School Lunch Program’s Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). You do not need to complete an application to receive these benefits. Please note that citizenship status does not affect eligibility. For more information, please view the P-EBT parent notice.

Parent/Teacher Resource Link

Teachers and parents now have a place to visit if they are in need of assistance in many areas including but not limited to: technology support, instructional strategies, curricular programming, etc. Not to mention, this website also highlights our U88 program and provides a link to our very own microsite, created by BloomBoard. Please take a moment to visit the Bellwood School District 88 Resource website, and help us promote this wonderful resource.

Loyola Pediatric Mobile Health Unit

Loyola Medicine is holding a pediatric mobile health unit. They will see patients for physical exams, sports physicals, immunizations, lab testing, and many other important services. This unit is free, but they will only see people by appointment. For more information, please see our pediatric mobile health unit flyer.
