MESSAGE FROM DISTRICT 202

Education Partners, hello.

Here is this week’s “Spring Break-Eve” selection of District 202 news and information: 


  • REMINDER – Spring Break runs through Tuesday, April 4th, which is Election Day.

Many of our schools serve as polling places. Therefore, there is no student attendance on Election Day to ensure student safety.

Classes resume on Wednesday, April 5th.


  • District 202 students in fifth through ninth grades will be able to take Chinese Immersion classes again this summer. Registration ends May 19, 2017.
  • The Board of Education approved some slight changes to the 2017-18 school calendar. The updated calendar is posted on the District 202 web site.

Have a safe, fun and restful Spring Break.
