Hello, District 202 Education Partners,


  • Meanwhile, remember that Remote Learning starts Monday, April 6, 2020. Students should be ready to start Remote Learning with or without a computer.

Teachers will contact students by email or phone to begin or continue their Remote Learning plans.

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

This Week's Highlights

All food handlers will wear personal protective equipment to ensure everyone’s safety.

***PLEASE REMEMBER: District 202 serves seven communities. Some District 202 families cannot get Plainfield Library cards. If you can’t, please contact your home library (Joliet, White Oak, Shorewood-Troy and Fountaindale) about similar opportunities. 

  • Several Internet/cable providers are offering discounted services because of the COVID-19 closure. Parents may wish to contact their local Internet or cable provider to about upgrades to their current service or start service. 
  • The Plainfield Park District asks that residents practice appropriate social distancing on Park District trails and green space. Plainfield Park District playgrounds, athletic courts and skate parks are closed per executive order of the Governor.
