Chat Site/App Warning for Parents

Although district devices are as secure and safe as possible, please pay attention to your child’s technology use on devices provided by the district and on personal devices. There are a few new sites of concern that are becoming popular with kids. These sites are video chat sites that connect users with others randomly to chat with strangers.They have become hot spots for predators. For example, one of the sites is called “Omegle - Talk to strangers.” District 41 has blocked this site and others like it on all district issued devices, however anyone can reach these sites on their personal devices.

Please continue to talk with your children about internet safety and monitor their technology usage at home. Thank you for partnering with us to keep students safe and responsible while online this summer.

About Quest

"Providing children nutritious foods, that fuel their learning, is our privilege. Sharing our knowledge about food and where it comes from, is our passion. Quest believes that the landscape of the “school cafeteria” is undergoing a long overdue overhaul. The variety of food, cuisine, and dining experiences children have available to them today shouldn’t stop at the doors of their school.

We believe in offering:

  • Traditional, kid-friendly favorites, made from scratch

  • Authentic international dishes

  • Fresh, local products

  • Made-to-order menu options

  • Inviting dining environment

  • Healthy choices that are flavorful and appealing

We believe that the food experience shouldn’t be limited to the cafeteria. Our kitchen-to-classroom approach provides educational opportunities for students to learn curriculum lessons on food science, history and agriculture, through food."
