Flossmoor School District 161 is moving forward with emergency playground repairs expected to cost $60,000.
The district’s board of education voted 6-0 during a special meeting held Monday July 26, to make essential, safety-focused repairs to the playgrounds outside of its schools. Board President Carolyn Griggs was absent.
Flossmoor resident Regina Ceragioli will present a voice recital at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 6, at Infant Jesus of Prague Church, 1131 Douglas Ave. in Flossmoor.
The demise of the vacant Triumph Building is near.
Demolition is expected to proceed in coming weeks as the longtime retail center at the corner of Ridge Road and Martin Avenue makes way for a four story residential structure with a ground floor restaurant.
The final approval was granted at the Homewood Board of Trustees regular meeting on July 27.
Homewood-Flossmoor Community High School has announced the appointment of James Mitchem Jr. as interim principal for the 2021-22 school year. Mitchem comes to H-F with nearly 40 years of experience in education.
