MESSAGE FROM DISTRICT 202

Education Partners, hello.

Here is this week’s serving of District 202 news and information heading into the long, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. birthday weekend:

 


SPECIAL NEWS
  • The Board of Education recently approved some minor changes to the 2016-17 school year calendar. We’ve posted the AMENDED 2016-17 CALENDAR (English and Spanish) on the district web site's Calendars page. Please download it now for your planning purposes.

Here are the major changes:

  • A couple of institute days were moved or eliminated
  • Fall parent-teacher conferences were moved to the week of Thanksgiving with no student attendance that week
  • Winter break was extended
  • Students will return to school on August 17th, rather than August 18th

THIS WEEK'S HIGHLIGHTS
  • Here are the Board of Education Meeting Notes from the January 11, 2016 regular meeting.
  • The online application for the 2016-17 full-day kindergarten program is now “live” and will remain open until 5 p.m. Friday, January 22, 2016. Please share this information with any District 202 residents who may be interested in full-day kindergarten next year.
  • Parents may apply online for the 2016-17 lottery to attend District 202's preschool programs from January 25 to February 8, 2016.
