Byron Middle School recently hosted an event to support Prairieview Golf Club course superintendent Matt Henkel who is currently battling brain cancer. “Hoops for Henkel” was held on 2/25 during an 8th grade basketball game versus Meridian Junior High. Matt and his wife Cammie, first grade teacher at Mary Morgan Elementary School, have three children in the Byron school district with two at the middle school. To support this family, shirts were sold, a 50/50 raffle was held, concessions from the game were donated by BMS Builder’s Club, and Pop a Shot was held at halftime. Thanks to everyone in the community and school district who supported this event for such a well-deserving local family.
Illinois law (Lawn Care Products Application and Notification Act) requires all school districts to notify students and staff when lawn care chemicals are being used in or around school facilities.
The Byron Community Unit School District will be providing meals for students throughout the mandatory school closings, March 17 – March 30. Daily sack lunches (sandwich, fruit, veggie and milk) will be made available for all students who need them. We will be providing a “drive up” service in front of Mary Morgan Elementary School and in front of Byron Middle School. Students of all ages may receive sack lunches from 9:00 am – 10:00 am at either location. If you have extenuating circumstances, please reach out to your child’s building principal.
