A Message from the Superintendent

At its March 16 meeting, the Board of Education voted to bring all interested students back to school full days, five days per week effective Monday, April 12. Additional information will be forthcoming from your child’s school over the next several weeks.

As of last week, 86% of D205 teachers have received their second dose of the vaccine.

Remote/In-Person Learning Designation
Elementary families will have a second opportunity to change their in-person/remote designation from March 22-April 5.  Secondary families will also have a second opportunity to change their in-person/remote designation from April 5-9. People interested in making a change should contact their child’s building directly during the dates specified above. Early childhood families are not impacted. Changes will be effective April 12.

Edison Wing Open for Occupancy
A wing of new classrooms was turned over to the District this morning, and two classrooms of students participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the occasion. These classrooms were moved so that construction can begin in other areas of the building. The project is on track for completion in August. You can check out the action by clicking here.
