  • Enterovirus Information


    While we have not had any confirmed cases of the Enterovirus within the Sycamore School District, we wanted to keep you updated with the latest information – please see the attached information from the Illinois Department of Public Health.

    As always, remember that we ask that students stay home if they have a fever of 100F degrees or above.  We also ask that students be symptom free for 24 hours before returning to school. This is to protect the other students from being exposed but also your child from catching any other viruses.

    Please feel free to contact your student’s school nurse if you have any questions or concerns.

    Sycamore’s graduating class of 2015 achieved an average ACT composite score of 21.8, according to numbers released last week by ACT. The state composite average was 20.7. Every Illinois high school student regardless of post-high school plans took the ACT, which is graded on a 36-point scale. The chart below shows Sycamore students’ ACT scores for the last five years.  We are grateful for our staff, parents, and community who helps us “Empower all learners to succeed in their world."
