District 202 Custodian Jason Mesick pushes cleaning equipment down a hallway lined with cleaned classroom desks as part of the work to deep clean Heritage Grove Middle School this week.

Hello, District 202 Education Partners,

We hope you’re doing well.

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

This Week's Highlights



The Board is expected to vote on the proposal at its regular meeting on Monday, July 20, 2020.



  • 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 easy to do!

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 Board of Education will meet in regular session on Monday, July 20, 2020. The Board will participate remotely in this meeting because of ongoing pandemic concerns and state health guidelines. Here is the agenda.

Community members can view the meeting online and submit public comments via email.

***PLEASE NOTE: we expect significant community interest in this meeting. If we exceed our Zoom meeting limit, viewers will be given the option to watch the meeting live on YouTube.

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

Week in Review


These District 202 social media posts got the most attention and feedback this week:
facebook image from facebook District 202 Superintendent Dr. Lane Abrell shared the district’s proposed “Return ‘20” plan at a special Board of Education “Committee of the Whole” meeting tonight. District 202 students would start the 2020-21 school year with remote learning but could return to in-person learning for the second quarter this fall if COVID-19 conditions allow, under a proposal unveiled Wednesday. The Board is expected to vote on the proposal at its regular meeting next Monday, July 20, 2020. #202proud Visit www.psd202.org/page/return2020 to view: • Dr. Abrell's Power Point presentation • Narrative with Additional Plan Detail • District Remote Learning Plan (proposed/not yet approved) • Video of the Committee of the Whole meeting (2 hours, 15 minutes) • Official Press Release

instagram image from instagram Custodians at Indian Trail Middle School are working hard refinishing floors and cleaning furniture this summer. Full-time custodians work alongside temporary summer help to get the work done. Many of the individuals who work as summer custodians are current or former District 202 students. Every school building gets a deep clean in the summer since they are empty. #202proud #summerwork


The District 202 Community Relations Department is traveling around the district taking pictures and videos. Check out what our students have been up to!
