Guy Schumacher

October 16, 2017
Dear Members of the Libertyville School District 70 Learning Community,
As we recognize the extraordinary efforts of our Libertyville School District 70 principals, assistant principals and dean of students during the state’s Principal Appreciation Week, I offer my sincere gratitude for their leadership and dedication to those served.
A proclamation signed by Governor Rauner highlights the important role of school administrators in education and their support toward the growth of children in elementary, middle and secondary schools across the State of Illinois. As we celebrate our District 70 leaders during Principal Appreciation Day on Friday, October 20, 2017, I am tremendously thankful and incredibly proud of all that they do for the children, parents, and staff throughout our learning community.
Please join me in sharing recognition of this special day and the collective efforts portrayed by our impressive school leadership team.

Dr. Guy Schumacher, Superintendent

Rockland School Renovation Through the Fall
Superintendent's Department
News Photo Renovation began in June on Rockland School as two classrooms and a gymnasium, almost triple the size of the current gym, are added. The classrooms and gym are expected to be open when students return after winter break on Jan. 8, 2018. 

The construction began with the removal of the mobile classrooms. During the project, the school office will be reconfigured and provide a more secure entrance to the school. Remodeling also will include adding a small group office, new building access and a vestibule on the west side of the school, additional teachers-only parking on the west side, and updating and replacing the building sprinkling system. The east side parking lot will be resurfaced and the roof over the school office and multipurpose room (the current gym) will be replaced.
