Welcome to Dever Elementary

The Chicago Public Library will be closed on Monday, March 2nd, in honor of Casimir Pulaski Day. Remember to make other arrangements if your child usually goes to the library at dismissal.

Changes to School Calendar

To ensure students receive the valuable instructional time that was intended for January 7 and 8,CPS has made changes to its academic calendar for this school year. These changes are as follows:

  • Friday, January 30, which was scheduled to be a School Improvement Day with no classes, will now be a regular attendance day for all students.
  • Wednesday, June 17, which was scheduled to be the first day of students’ summer break, will now be a regular attendance day for all students.
  • Students’ summer break will begin on Thursday, June 18.


REMINDER - Please be courteous to our neighbors when dropping off and picking up your children. Do not block driveways. Residents must be able to access their driveway at all times.

Dever Receives Silver Level Status

The Illinois Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports  (PBIS) Network has recognized Dever School at the Silver Level for our implementation of PBIS during the 2013-2014 school year. We were given a decal award that will be displayed at the main entrance. The list of recognized schools will be available at www.pbisillinois.org/schools/school-recognition at the end of June. We are proud to be recognized for providing effective supports for all students to achieve social, emotional, and academic success.


CPS Office of Student Health and Wellness provides information related to recess and weather. The District encourages schools to provide students with the opportunity to play outside whenever possible. Please send your child with clothing appropriate for outdoor  recess. These factors are considered when making the outdoor versus indoor recess decision: student safety, temperature, wind chill, humidity, precipitation, ground conditions and air quality.
