Dave DiNaso's "Traveling World of Reptiles" visited Ridge Elementary School this week.

Hello Education Partners,

Hope you have had a good week.

Here is this week’s selection of District 202 news and information:


This Week's Highlights


We’re proud to introduce “District 202 In Focus”, a new communications feature taking an in-depth, year-long, digital look at important District 202 topics, initiatives and programs.

This year, we’re highlighting Curriculum and Instruction.

First up: the “Technology Trailblazers” pilot program leads the work being done to increase and improve the use of technology in our classrooms.

Future topics include:

  • Our ELL programs
  • Student Assessments
  • What’s coming in 2019-2020

We hope you enjoy “District 202 In Focus”!


  • Plainfield North and South high school students can get free heart screenings in January and February 2019. (PHSCC and PEHS students will be able to get the same screenings next school year.)


Check out all the great things our students and staff did in November 2018.

facebook All Plainfield Community Consolidated School District 202 schools will be closed Monday, November 26, 2018 because of anticipated blizzard conditions.

This decision was made based on careful review of the latest weather information and consultation with local law enforcement, neighboring school districts, and our transportation department.

All 12-month employees and principals must report to work if possible.

All activities also will be cancelled including all Park District activities, and the YMCA KidZone and Youth Basketball League. All cancelled events will be rescheduled as soon as possible, as appropriate.

Transportation will not be provided to students attending school outside of District 202.

Finally, please call the YMCA directly at 815-267-8600 or check its website for information about its Day Out of School Program at the Wallin Drive location.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, and please be safe.

Have a good night.
