Plainfield South High School Assistant Principal Lisa Smith hand a yard sign to a senior student as staff members watch during curbside pickup on Thursday, April 23, 2020. The high school provided the signs to show support for the Class of 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hello, District 202 Education Partners,


With that, here is the rest of this week’s selection of D. 202 news and information:


This Week's Highlights


We haven’t talked about the 2020 Census in a while, but it’s still going on, and it’s still very important that everyone complete it.

Households should have received a letter with a personalized, 12-digit Census ID code.

Go to http://my2020census.gov, use that code to sign in, and you’re all set!

If you lost that letter and/or your code, simply go to the website and fill out a couple of simple identifying questions.

Census data help determine our legislative representation in Congress and our share of $675 billion in federal funding.



  • The District 202 Board of Education will meet in regular session on Monday, April 27, 2020 at the District 202 Administrative Center, 15732 Howard Street, Plainfield.

***Board members will attend the meeting remotely. The public will not be allowed to enter the Administrative Center. However, community members can view the meeting online and submit public comments.

  • Our teachers, students and families continued to do a great job this week with Remote Learning.
