Charles Reed Elementary School first grade teachers (from left) Kim Transon, Danielle Smith and Jennifer Murphy work on a lesson plan on Thursday, August 27, 2020. District 202 students will begin school remotely on Monday, August 31, 2020. Some teachers will teach from their classrooms while others will teach from home.

Hello, District 202 Education Partners,

Hoping everyone is doing well.

As you know, the 2020-21 school year starts Monday with “Remote Learning.”

This is a strange, frustrating, challenging time, but winners rise to the challenge. District 202 is full of winners.

We are eternally grateful for the hard work, dedication, visionary thinking, support, patience and understanding shown by our families, staff and community.

Best wishes for a good start of the year.

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

This Week's Highlights



The C.W. Avery YMCA will offer its "Kidzone PLUS Youth Enrichment" before and after-school program this fall for elementary and middle school students.

The program will be held from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. at all four District 202 high schools.


You have only until September 30th to complete your 2020 Census! Remember, the Census helps determine Will County’s share of federal funds (including those for schools.)

It is easy and quick:

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

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 special session at 7 p.m. Tuesday, September 1, 2020 with the consultant who is facilitating the process to create a new five-year strategic plan for District 202.

***The Board of Education, superintendent and the consultant will be the only participants, however, the meeting is public and can be watched online.

  • Starting next week, District 202 and our food services partner, Aramark, will offer "Curbside Meal Service" to ALL enrolled District 202 students. (Meal charges may apply based on family economic status.)

Curbside Meal Service will be available Mondays from 10 a.m. to noon, and Thursdays, from 3-5 p.m. at several nine District 202 schools.

Thank You

…for your continued support of our students and staff.

For many, today is a day of solemn remembrance as we mark the 30th anniversary of the Plainfield tornado on August 28, 1990.

The storm – at that time, the worst on record for late August – killed 29 people in Plainfield, Joliet and Crest Hill.

It destroyed Plainfield High School and St. Mary Immaculate Church and school, and caused hundreds of millions of dollars of property damage.

Yet, out of that death and destruction came a wave of growth that changed our community forever, for the better, not to mention new architectural safety rules and better weather forecasting technology.

Please take a moment to contemplate what we lost, and gained.


Have a good weekend.
