Plainfield North High School juniors Dylan Rasmason and Calvin Sharp, and senior Jack Kiefer took part in football drills this week. State health guidelines allowed football practice to resume as long as players wear masks or maintain appropriate social distancing.

Hello, District 202 Education Partners,

We hope you are well!

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

This Week's Highlights



  • The State Board of Education released new guidance and directives for local school districts to return to school this fall. District 202 will share its own plan, based on this new guidance, as soon as possible.



  • There is still time to complete your 2020 Census, and it is more important than ever. The Census determines Will County’s share of federal funds. Please complete the 2020 Census. It’s very simple!

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!

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


Thank you in advance for doing your part!


  • The Student Services Department, in conjunction with Hartgrove Counseling Center, hosted a "Virtual Parent Night" on June 17 and 18, 2020 to share information with parents about childhood mental health, coping tools and parenting resources. Click here for videos in English and Spanish.

Athletes must wear masks or be at least six feet apart during workouts, temperatures and symptom checks are conducted and recorded. 

facebook image from facebook A statement from District 202 Superintendent on plans for returning to school: Dear District 202 Families and Staff, I hope you are all well and enjoying your summer break so far. As you know, the State Board of Education yesterday released new guidance and direction for local school districts to return to school this fall. As you might expect, this guidance is very complex and will take some time to fully sort out. However, it essentially boils down to three key points: 1. In-person learning (that is, going “back to school") is the priority 2. Essential safety measures must be followed, including wearing masks, washing hands, etc. 3. Plans must anticipate the possibility of more remote learning if/as needed The good news is, District 202 administration, teachers and parents have been working on plans along these general lines since late April, so we are already moving in this direction and much of our planning is already done or in process. Visit www.psd202.org/documents/1593014804.pdf to read more of Dr. Lane Abrell's statement. #202proud
