Round Lake school district
requests flood assistance

Round Lake CUSD 116 is seeking assistance due to flooding from recent storms in northern Illinois. This area of Lake County received over seven inches of rain last week.

Two schools, Murphy Elementary School and Ellis Elementary School, have been affected by flooding. Murphy’s school library was destroyed in the flood. School officials will determine at a later date if the buildings can be opened for students.

The Round Lake Area Schools Education Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization accepting monetary donations on behalf of the District. Funds donated will be applied directly to flood recovery efforts within the district. Donations can be made online or can be mailed to P.O. Box 1881 Round Lake, IL 60073.

The district is also accepting donations of books at the district administrative office, 884 W. Nippersink Rd., Round Lake, IL 60073.
