An Updated Message From Mrs. Schmidt Regarding Lunch and Recess

Dear Dundee Highlands Families,

In response to the concerns that were raised about the lunch and recess times, I am excited to announce that there will be some changes to the lunch recess times for this school year!  Thank you to all of the parents who were able to attend the problem solving sessions on August 26, 2015. I appreciate your flexibility as we were able to come together to address some concerns about lunch and recess schedules. These parent groups were able to brainstorm several ideas that ignited some of the changes listed below that will take effect on MONDAY, AUGUST 31, 2015:





4th and 5th


10:55 - 11:15

4th and 5th


K and 2nd



K and 2nd


1st and 3rd



1st and 3rd

The above will be every grade level’s lunch and recess schedules for each regular day of school beginning on Monday.  A modified schedule will be posted for the early release days.

With the help and support from the district office, and our amazing custodial staff members, we are able to use both side of the multipurpose room for our new cafeteria.  This allows us to have 2 grade levels go to lunch and recess at one time.  I am thrilled that we were able to return to lunch and recess times so similar to last year’s schedule.

I really appreciate everyone’s feedback and problem solving abilities.  This is just one of the reasons why I love the Dundee Highlands Family!  Please feel free to contact me at 224-484-4700 or at .  You can also view the updated information on our website at or visit our Facebook page by searching for Dundee Highlands Elementary School.

 Educationally yours,

Patty Schmidt
