Good evening, Unit #20 family:
In reference to rumors and false information that circulated this afternoon around our community, at no time was there a threat to the students, staff, or school community, nor was there ever a threat of violence with a gun on and/or near school grounds. While some parents and students are still concerned about these erroneous rumors, we will continue to work in tandem with the Lawrenceville City Police Department and the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office as an added measure of security to put an end to those fears. The administration wants to emphasize that safety is our top priority and we will continue to be vigilant and work collaboratively with the law enforcement entities within our community.
Unit #20 Administration

We’d like to thank our guest presenter, Mr. Joel Katte from Lexington, Kentucky, for encouraging our staff to pour their hearts, souls, and commitments into themselves, each other, and their students.
Unit #20 - are you ready for IGNITE #loveinschools with our presenter Joel Katte tomorrow morning?? Joel shared the following on his Facebook page this morning:
"The eyes are the window to the soul. What do you see in others? What do you let them see in you?
Feeling extra blessed today that I get the privilege of supporting schools and districts. I am excited that tomorrow I get to spend the day with Lawrence County CUSD #20 in southern Illinois. Can’t wait!"

Unit #20 family - come excited to learn and grow tomorrow. Too many of our educators are overwhelmed with unrealistic expectations, feel burned out, and want to serve with joy, passion, and love again. Our goal tomorrow is to have Joel pour into all of us so we can leave IGNITED, helping us reconnect with our passion, our why, and helping us find our focus and excitement to lead not only in our classrooms but in our life as well. Joel will be teaching all of us how to maximize our relationships with students, colleagues, and families. We're also focusing on a positive culture with the walls of our school buildings and communities. We are going to pour into all of you, Unit #20!
We look forward to seeing you in the morning!
Friday, October 7 is a teacher inservice day for all of Unit #20. There will be no school for students.
