Please see the below statement from District 118 regarding a report being investigated by Island Lake Police Department. “Dear District 118 Families, The Island Lake Police Department has notified us of a “suspicious activity” report that was filed earlier today by a concerned parent. The reported suspicious behavior had some similarities to the incident that was shared with you last week. It was reported that an older white man with disheveled hair and beard watched two children playing in a front yard from inside a gold work van with ladders on it. This vehicle differed from the one reported from last week as that vehicle was a gold sedan. The parent reported that when she attempted to take a picture of the individual with her cell phone, he drove off. Once again, we would like to remind all parents to talk to your children about the importance of not talking or responding to strangers, accepting candy or gifts from strangers, or entering the car of a stranger. Also, please report any suspicious behavior to the police immediately by calling 911. Our Transportation Department continues to be extra vigilant for suspicious behavior as they drive students to and from school. Thank you, Daniel J. Coles, Ed.D. Superintendent of Schools”

Special Census to Begin in Liberty Lakes Area this Thursday The Schools, Village, and other entities receive funding from the State and Federal Government based on the number of residents in the Village. The Village staff have looked at recent data and think that the number of residents in the Liberty Lakes area is undercounted due to population growth since the data for the 2010 Census was completed. The Village has initiated a Special Census to determine the correct population in this area to make sure the taxing districts are receiving the proper amount of State and Federal Funding. U.S. Census Bureau workers, displaying an identifying badge, will soon be going house by house through the Liberty Lakes area. Please cooperate with these individuals to help us get an accurate count of individuals in your household. The enumerator will ask you five questions for each person living in your household and the interview should only take about 10 minutes. Your answers are private. Every Census Bureau worker takes an oath to protect your answers. If they violate this oath, they’ll face a maximum of 5 years in jail and a $250,000 fine. That’s the law! The Census Bureau never releases information that identifies you or your household. The law and our respect for your privacy means you can trust the Census Bureau, AND the law applies whether or not you are a U.S. citizen. Thank you in advance for participating in our Special Census. By completing the questionnaire, you help everyone living in our community. For more information, contact our Special Census Office or visit the Census Bureau’s Web Site: https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/specialcensus.html The U.S. Census Bureau is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

The report indicated an adult male in a gold vehicle has made multiple attempts to engage in conversation with children at bus stops after school and in the early dusk hours in an unincorporated area of Lake County, the Timberlake Estates subdivision. This subdivision is within our school district boundaries, an area that is located south of Rte 12 and east of Rte 59. We would like to remind all parents to talk to your children about the importance of not talking or responding to strangers, accepting candy or gifts from strangers, or entering the car of a stranger. We have alerted our Transportation Department of this report and our drivers will be extra vigilant in watching for suspicious behavior as they drive students to and from school. Any suspicious behavior should be reported to the police. Thank you, Daniel J. Coles, Ed.D. Superintendent of Schools”
