MESSAGE FROM DISTRICT 202

Education Partners, hello.

Hope you have had a good week. Here is today’s District 202 news and information going into the Memorial Day holiday weekend: 


  • PLEASE REMEMBER – Tuesday, May 30th is the last day of school. We will operate on the “Early Release” schedule. Preschool and Kindergarten students do not attend class on Tuesday.
  • Work started this week to renovate the stadiums and install artificial turf at Plainfield North and East high schools.

As we did last year with PHSCC and PSHS, we will track this project through the summer with pictures and video on the district web site. 


  • District 202 will spray for weeds at all of our facilities over the coming weeks and in early June.
