A Monday morning fire at St. Charles East High School has been put out, a district spokeswoman said. At about 8:30 a.m., a fire started in the Norris Recreation Center inside St. Charles East, said spokeswoman Carol Smith of School District 303. Monday marked the first full day of school for teachers, while some student athletes were there as well. People were evacuated from the high school, and everyone got out safely, Smith said. Wednesday is the first day of classes for St. Charles East students.
Students and teachers at Kenyon Woods Middle School watched in awe as clouds cleared and the Sun became nothing more than a crescent in the daytime sky Monday. Albert Navarro took his 34 U.S. history students in South Elgin outside just after 1 p.m. to catch a glimpse, utilizing protective solar eclipse glasses. Students were tempted to stare up while conditions were cloudy, he reminded them to keep them on while staring up above.
The contracts with four local governments — Elgin, South Elgin, Streamwood and Bartlett — raise the base salaries for the 14 U46 police officers. The total salary paid will increase from $905,409 to $921,950. Under each contract, the school district reimburses the four local governments for the salary and overtime pay of the officers. Overtime pay for the school resource officers will remain the same under the contracts.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
