FEBRUARY 29TH - HALF DAY OF SCHOOL
February 29 Half-Day of School and Spring Parent/Teacher Conferences
On February 29, District 303 elementary students will have a half day of school as the afternoon will be dedicated to parent-teacher conferences. These conferences are limited to a specific number of spaces, which is different than what we had during the fall conferences where we met with all parents.
Your child's teacher will send a letter soon letting you know whether or not he or she recommends a conference for your student. Parents will also have the opportunity to request a conference if they wish.
On February 29 the dismissal time will be at 11:30 a.m. We will not have lunch service that day. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

District 303 is pleased to present its lineup of Parent Education sessions for the 2023-2024 school year.
The Parent Education series (formerly Parent University) includes informational meetings and workshops intended to empower parents and guardians to support their children’s academic, social and emotional needs. Become informed on specialized topics, engage in two-way dialogue with speakers and fellow parents, and become a support resource for others.
Sessions for this school year will focus on bullying prevention, addressing anxiety, and include film screenings and discussions about the impact of screen time and cultural awareness. The schedule also includes college preparation workshops hosted by our high schools. Sessions were selected based in part on feedback from District 303 parents.
Explore the full lineup of sessions here. Signup forms for each session will be made available closer to the session dates. New this year, you can also register for Parent Education notifications and receive alerts as new information and session recaps become available.
