Virtual Backpack

WHAT IS THE VIRTUAL BACKPACK PAGE?

In an effort to create a more eco-friendly environment, District 205 no longer distributes paper flyers. The Virtual Backpack advertises community wide events open to all District 205 students. Flyers are screened and approved for distribution by the District 205 Office of Communications and Public Relations as a service to the community. Approved flyers are posted on this page. During the school year, the link to this page is included in Talk205.

The Virtual Backpack is updated weekly.

Note: All events listed below are not sponsored by District 205 unless otherwise noted.

Student Services Events

The Illinois West Suburban Conference High Schools will host a Virtual Options Fair instead of their annual in-person fair.  The aim is to provide an opportunity for families of students who have either a 504 plan or an IEP and are interested in making a connection with colleges, college-experience programs, certificate/trade schools, and adult agencies.  Please see the flyer for more information.
