Saliva samples should be brought to school on Monday morning (Tuesday and Wednesdays are back up days for collection). Please submit one sample per student, per week. Each student must use their designated saliva tube with barcode. Please make sure your child brings their sample to their homeschool and turns it into their classroom teacher. Thank you for your cooperation.


This is a reminder that anyone looking to request remote learning for next year will need to complete the Physician Certification Form. District 41 has begun to plan for next school year. It is expected that 3ft social distancing will continue to be in place and we also know that a full remote learning option will be available based on medical criteria. Remote learning will not be open to all students next year. It is important for the district to know if your child meets the medical criteria for remote learning. This information will impact staffing and other plans for next year.

Please CLICK HERE for a physician certification form for remote instruction for next year. The form needs to be filled out by a parent and physician and returned to Dr. Katie McCluskey at the District 41 Central Services Office, 793 N. Main Street, Glen Ellyn, by May 15.


Registration is now open for 5th grade Beginning Orchestra and 5th grade Beginning Band. To register please follow these directions:
