The peak of the cold and flu season is upon us!
Recently, the nurses in District 303 have been caring for a number of students experiencing fevers and other cold-like symptoms. We are also aware that some students are absent from school because they have been diagnosed with the flu and other influenza-like symptoms. During the months of October through April, each school in District 303 tracks influenza activity in cooperation with the Kane County Health Department. We consult with their staff to determine whether influenza activity in a school warrant additional follow up and, at this time, no additional interventions are needed. Preventative measures remain the most effective way to reduce the spread of influenza.
MIDDLE SCHOOL TRANSFER REQUESTS (5th Grade Parents)
Families who wish to submit Middle School Transfer requests may do so beginning February 3. The request form will be available on the District 303 website through February 28. Families must complete a separate form for each student they want to be transferred. Requests are granted based on space available so siblings are not guaranteed placement. A written decision will be communicated to families before spring break.
Once the request is approved, a student may remain at that middle school throughout his or her middle school career, as long as the student resides in District 303.
Families of students granted permission to attend a school outside of their assigned attendance are responsible for their own transportation.
Students will return to their assigned attendance area high school regardless of the middle school attended.

Coloring Book and Crayon Drive
Breanna, a 3rd grader in Mrs. Reiff’s class, was born with a complex Congenital Heart Failure. She has had many heart surgeries, many hospitalizations, and long days at appointments. To help her through these times she would love to color. In honor of national CHD week, she would like to collect coloring books and crayons to give to the CHD heart warriors in the CICU at Lurie Children’s Hospital and all their outpatient cardiac centers for children. Please join us in supporting her effort by donating NEW coloring books and crayons. Donations can be sent to school February 10th-14th. The class that collects the most will win a cookie party.
