Eccles School

Sigel Township School District #4F

Eccles School began teaching students in the fall of 1886.  The land was first owned by Mr. and Mrs. William Stafford.  The land was later transferred to Mary Smith and then deeded to the Eccles School for the sum of $1.00.  Forty-eight teachers have taught at the Eccles School.  Our student population has ranged from seven in 1990-1991 to a high of 61 in 1905-1906.  In 2017-2018 Eccles School had 36 students.  We currently have 29 students.

Eccles School Happenings

A year ago today was when our world came crashing down – March 13, 2020! We weren’t sure when we would be back at school again. Unfortunately we didn’t return until the first day of school in September 2021. Today we had to go virtual due to a positive COVID case in our building, but we will be back at it again on March 22, 2021 we we all return back to school again. Stay well everyone!!
