UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 Global Pandemic,
ESCCA is modifying the way in which we serve our families.
Please contact Tracy Gallun or Debbie Singer for more information.
FOR HEALTH CLERKS AND SOCIAL WORKERS
A parent or guardian may request ESCCA services for a District 65 child by contacting you. They will need to fill out a Request Form, which you can send home with their child, or if they prefer, they can come to the school to fill out and sign the Request Form during Health Clerk’s office hours.
After the Request Form has been completed, signed and returned, the health clerk processes an ESCCA Referral Sheet. The parent/guardian should contact only one health clerk and fill out only one Request Form for all District 65 school children in a single family. The health clerk fills out one Referral Sheet for each child. These Referral Sheets are sent to the directors responsible for scheduling, Diane Wright, Laura Hohnhold and/or Nicky Fisher C/O ESCCA, 1500 McDaniel, Evanston 60201. Children are usually served on a first-come, first-served basis.
One of the ESCCA schedulers will call families from whom they have received Referral Sheets and arrange the earliest possible date for a Serve at the clothing center. If no phone number is given or if the phone has been disconnected, the health clerk will send a note home with the child.
Families are called and reminded of their Serve date. To ensure efficient handling of questions or problems, the health clerk should keep each request form on file and record the date the Referral Sheets are sent to the directors for scheduling. The number of children scheduled for each session is limited to 8 to 10. The waiting list varies, so no promises should be made to the families regarding the date they will be served.
ESCCA does not serve pre-school children.
Emergency situations will be handled as expeditiously as possible. However, all referrals must come through the schools, even in an emergency. Occasionally, community agencies will refer children who are not District 65 students.
To request emergency service, call directors for scheduling, Diane Wright, Laura Hohnhold or Nicky Fisher at 847-859-8018, and send Referral Sheets to them as soon as possible. The children will be served as soon as available personnel can be assembled to staff the serving center.
A parent or guardian may request ESCCA services for a District 65 child by contacting his or her health clerk, social worker or school principal. Contact information for your school can be found below. An ESCCA Request Form will then be sent home with your child or you can fill out and sign the Request Form at the school during the Health Clerk’s office hours. (You should contact only one health clerk and fill out only one Request Form for all District 65 school children in a single family. The health clerk will fill out one Referral Sheet for each child.) Children are usually served on a first-come, first-served basis.
ESCCA CLOTHING CENTER
Someone from ESCCA will call you to arrange the earliest possible date for you and your child(ren) to select school clothing at the clothing center at 1500 McDaniel Avenue. If you didn’t list a phone number on your request form, the health clerk will send a note home with your child. If for any reason you can’t keep your appointment at your scheduled time, please call ESCCA at 847-859-8018.
