Due to the current surge in COVID-19 cases throughout our community and the greater Chicagoloand area, we have decided to postpone the Alumni Event scheduled to take place on campus this Thursday, January 13. We look forward to a rescheduled event when we can safely and joyously celebrate our Bernard Zell friends and memories in-person.

In the meantime, click here to update your information so we can highlight our amazing alumni in our 75th Anniversary year. Please also join our virtual, weekly community meeting, Morning Brew with Head of School Gary Weisserman this Friday, January 14 at 10:00 a.m. CT via Zoom for a sneak peek at how we're celebrating the 75th day of school in our 75th year.

We hope you are healthy and well and look forward to seeing you in-person soon!
