Monticello CUSD #25 will dismiss one hour early on Wednesday, May 26 in order to allow for the Officer Chris Oberheim funeral procession preparations to commence around town. It is expected that the procession will be in Monticello at 2:20PM, but streets will start to be blocked off around 1:00PM. The procession route will drive from Decatur on I-72, come in on Bridge St/Center St and turn left on State St to the cemetery. A very large number of police vehicles from all over the area/state/country are expected to be in town during this time. Dismissal times will be HS/MS/WH at 12:00, WASH at 12:10 and LINC at 12:15. No PM Small Wonders on this day.
We have been informed that the funeral for Chris Oberheim will be Wednesday in Decatur with burial in Monticello. A procession will drive from the funeral to the cemetery. The family has requested the local VFW work with an organization to post flags along the procession route. We have been contacted by The Flagman Mission (https://www.theflagmanmission.org) who will be bringing 2500 flags to line the route. We need the assistance of any and all people available to post the flags at 3PM-5PM on Monday (5/24) and take them down at 3PM-5PM on Thursday (5/27). Please meet in the Sievers Center parking lot (Kratz Road behind Monticello High School) by 3PM on Monday to receive instructions from Flagman Mission Organizer Jeff Hastings. Jeff will have everything needed to get the job done - he suggested you bring gloves. This is an excellent opportunity for Monticello to once again show our support for the Oberheim Family. All ages and families welcome. Feel free to share this request on social media and with anyone who might be interested in assisting in this effort. See you all on Monday!
We will be dismissing 30 minutes early (5/20) at all schools in order for traffic and buses to be clear for the Officer Chris Oberheim escort through Monticello on the way to Decatur at approximately 1:30. Dismissal times will be HS/MS/WH at 12:30, WASH at 12:40 and LINC at 12:45. All Small Wonders PK times will stay the same.
It is with deep sadness that we process the news of the passing of Chris Oberheim while working as a Champaign Police Officer early this morning. Chris was a parent in our school district and was very involved in the lives of his four daughters, three of which currently attend our schools. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time. Police Officers, Firefighters, and other first responders put their lives on the line every day to ensure that the rest of us are safe - they are there when we need them during our most difficult times and are often not appreciated for their daily work. Tragedies like this bring out the best in all of us as we rally around them and their families during difficult times. The Monticello School District, the City of Monticello, and all of Officer Oberheim's fellow officers will rally around the Oberheim Family during this time. RIP 703.
