Hey working parents: We’ll take care of your kids during spring break

Keep the kids active this spring break! They can enjoy field trips to Fire Zone, Chuck E. Cheese, Coachlite Rollerskating, Painted Penguin and Ultra Foods. In addition, we’ll organize crafts, games and physical activities for your kids to choose from. Full day care and before and after hours care available. Save $5 with early bird pricing if you sign up two days prior to your preferred days.

Pictures from Daddy Daughter Dinner Dance

Dads and their special ladies shared an incredible night of dancing and entertainment by Elsa, Anna, Olaf and Kristoff, and several other Disney characters from the Round Lake Area Park District Cabaret group. The girls enjoyed special surprises including building their own Olaf snowman, a blue hot chocolate bar, and the finale of Elsa singing “Let It Go” while snow fell inside the ballroom - it was a night to remember! Pictures from the dance can be viewed and downloaded from these links:

Information about the Measles

Because of recent headline news about a potential measles exposure in the area, we want to assure you that we have guidelines in place to address participant illness. We do recommend that residents educate themselves about this disease. Refer to the links below for more information.
