Our teachers need your child's pick up information. Please share with them whether your child is a parent pick up, walker, turnabout pick up, Boys & Girls club or older sibling picking up.
If you are driving your child to or from school, you must use the turnabout on Streamwood Boulevard. Drivers must stay in their cars. Staff will escort your child to their line up location. There is no parking in the turnabout.
** In order for our process to work, it takes patience. **
School bus delays can be caused by weather conditions, road closures, and more. U-46 parents and guardians with children who ride U-46 buses are urged to download the Versatrans “My Stop” app so that they can see, in real time, the location of their child’s school bus.
Here are step-by-step instructions on how to download the app to your smartphone, sign in, and navigate the app.
Note for Android users: If you downloaded the app before Nov. 1, 2022, please re-download it. Versatrans recently made some updates to ensure the app performs optimally for Android devices.

Student Grades in Infinite Campus
Parent engagement is crucial to academic success, and as a District, we want to ensure our parents are informed and engaged in their child’s education. Infinite Campus is an online tool that gives parents and guardians access to their child’s attendance, teacher’s contact information, bus schedule (if applicable), and most importantly grades.
Visit u-46.org/reportcards for an overview of U-46 Student Progress Reports and Report Cards and instructions on how to access and navigate the Infinite Campus Parent Portal so that you are able to see your child’s in-progress grades. Remember that parents can customize the settings to be notified about assignment and grade updates.
