Welcome Marshall Parents!

Every year, Bellwood 88 welcomes new families into our community. We are grateful and excited to be part of the life and learning of our community. If you are a new family to Marshall Elementary, we are available to assist in making the transition simple and seamless. If you are a returning family, we welcome you back.


Please check our website and be sure you are connected to your classrooms Class Dojo so that you are receiving our constant communication with families. Class Dojo is our classroom and school communication tool. We share school information, community information, as well as individual classroom highlights and shout outs.



School Uniforms


Families, please make sure your student is in a full school uniform each and every day.






Our arrival and dismissal procedures have been updated to comply with health and safety guidelines. Additionally, we require students to wear masks when entering and exiting the building. 


Please keep in mind that we close Oak Street in the mornings to allow for safe student movement for both Marshall Elementary School and Roosevelt Middle School. The first bell rings at 8:15 a.m. and students are escorted to class by 8:20 a.m. Students who enter after 8:30 a.m. are tardy. An accumulation of tardies can result in detention.   At 8:30 AM or after parents must escort their children to the main entrance and go through next steps with our secretaries. Students should not be walking to the main entrance by themselves.


Dismissal Procedures:


Outdoor supervision by Marshall Elementary School staff members will begin at 3:00 PM.


Bus Riders


Student bus riders will exit the building using the cafeteria doors at Marshall Elementary School.  We will dismiss students in waves by bus numbers to ensure social distancing and student safety getting on the bus.


If your student is not riding the bus on a particular day, please contact the main office (708) 410 – 3500 prior to 10:00 a.m. so that there is ample time to communicate effectively with their classroom teacher.


Walkers and Transportation by Family Vehicle


Walkers will exit the building using the main entrance for 1st through 2nd grade. 3rd grade through 5th grade will use the gym exit and kindergarten will use the Little Theater exit.


As a driver please ensure the following:


Pull up along the school side on Oak Street in a single line.  Please do not double-park in one direction. This makes it for cars to travel on Oak Street going East to West or West to East.

Once you have your children in the car, travel one way ensure safety for students and drivers.  Do not use neighborhood driveways to turn around or the Roosevelt Middle School parking lot.

If you need to get out of your car to meet your child, we ask that you pull up approximately 30 meters past the concrete area before stopping.
