Performance Trust Field
Thank you for your patience as we plan for a commencement service on campus in place of Wheaton College’s Edmund Chapel. In a previous communication, we had mentioned that each family would receive a minimum of four tickets. As we have reviewed current guidance in Illinois for gatherings, we no longer need to limit the number of guests for our ceremony. We will provide seating on Performance Trust Field for nearly 1500. If you do not get a seat on the field, there will be additional seating in the bleachers as well as room for guests to set up their own chairs outside of the stadium (viewing from a distance is possible thanks to our jumbotron). The gate will open at 2:30 p.m. for general admission seating.
Summer Academy starts Wednesday, June 9. Teachers and room numbers will be posted in the Atrium and in Student Services on the first day. If you have not received any information regarding Summer Academy and had planned on your student taking summer classes, please contact Angie Roberts, firstname.lastname@example.org, as soon as possible.
The lunch menu for Summer Academy will be available to view on Fridays. Please submit your order no later than the Thursday prior.

COVID-19 Case Update
Over the last week, we had three positive cases for COVID-19, and one person is currently in quarantine.
End of the Year Locker Cleanout
It is the responsibility of students to clean all books and personal belongings out of their lockers by Friday, June 4. Wheaton Academy will begin summer cleaning, including clearing out all lockers, on June 14. Any personal items remaining in lockers after that date will be discarded.
Last Chance to Purchase a Yearbook
If you haven’t bought the 2020-2021 yearbook, this is your last chance! They won’t be available to purchase after this week. The cost is $25, and you may purchase directly from Jostens.com.
These are our plans as they stand right now but know that with further guidance, plans may change. We will have final trip announcements at the end of August and want to give you this information now to begin planning and budgeting. The prices that are listed are subject to change. Thank you in advance for your patience and flexibility! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Amy Heavey with any questions.
