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.
The Virtual Backpack is updated weekly.
Note: All events listed below are not sponsored by District 205 unless otherwise noted.
Residents of District 205 who are age 60+ are invited to be our special guest at any Fine Arts Program. Your VIP card is available by the calling the Office of Communications at 630-941-4719. VIP cards do not expire. VIP Cards are accepted at all events.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or 630-617-2300 x7265 to reserve your VIP tickets for York Drama performances. There are a limited (15) number of VIP tickets set aside for each performance.
