Scam Prevention:

Investigator Don Bisch urged the audience to avoid giving out personal information over the phone, and to contact police if they receive suspicious calls.

Emergency Window Coverings:

A group of students from Washington Junior High School received a Mission Maker Award at the most recent District 203 board meeting for creating emergency window coverings for the school. The students made cloth covers for over 40 windows in the building, to be put up during an emergency lockdown situation. Family and consumer science teacher Erin Owen helped spearhead the project, with students gathering every lunch period for a month to help sew together the coverings.
