ELMWOOD SUMMER UPDATE: Effective July 1, 2020, Elmwood Elementary School will serve students in kindergarten through 5th grade. Our website will be updated during the summer to reflect this change. The first day of classes for 2020-21 is Monday, Aug. 31, 2020.


Elmwood Elementary School educates students in grades K-5. This is a change that becomes official on July 1, 2020. Prior to that date, we taught students in grades 1-6. (With the change, 6th graders now attend Elm Middle School.) 

Along with John Mills Elementary, which teaches pre-kindergarten through 5th grade, we are one of two elementary schools in Elmwood Park Community Unit School District 401.

If you have questions or want to learn more about how we fulfill District 401’s educational mission, we invite you to contact us by using the information provided below.

When questions, concerns or interests regarding your child's progress or school program arise, please address them promptly by contacting the classroom teacher. Use this directory to look up the Elmwood teacher you need to contact.

If questions or concerns remain, it is appropriate that you then contact the building principal or assistant principal.

In the event that there are remaining or unresolved questions or concerns, feel free to contact Superintendent of Schools Dr. Nicolas Wade.
