We are looking forward to welcoming students back to class next week! Students in grades 1-12 head back to school on Monday, Aug. 22. Preschool and kindergarten students begin Wednesday, Aug. 24.
Parents have received notification of teacher assignments and bus schedules through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. If you are having trouble logging into the portal, please call the Infinite Campus help line at (847) 842-3580 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Please review your transportation information carefully, as pick-up and drop-off locations and times may be different from previous years. In order to increase bus efficiencies and decrease transportation costs, students may be required to walk a short distance to a neighborhood bus stop, with exception to preschool and some special education students. Specific information on bus schedules is available through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.
Back-to-school nights and meet-the-teacher events are posted on each school's calendar. View the calendars and subscribe to updates by visiting the district website.
