Special Board Meeting: Tuesday, January 12th @ 6:30pm

This coming Tuesday Dr. Hubbard will be presenting the Return to In-Person Learning Plan. If you are interested in attending virtually to hear this information first hand, you can register for the meeting at THIS LINK. The updated Logistics & Operations Guidebook will be available to parents following the meeting pending board approval.

Return to In-Person Learning Status

Every family should have received an email on Friday, January 8th stating which group your child or children will be part of as we move into a hybrid format for our return to in-person learning. We are beyond excited to allow students back into the buildings. If you did not receive an email, please call the main office at 847-838-8101. Unfortunately, we are unable to change any family's assigned group because we would be unable to fulfill everyone's wishes. All siblings or members of the same household within Antioch District 34 should be in the same group. If this is not the case, please call the main office to report this error. You will continue to receive more information from your child's teacher and the school regarding the logistics of our return sometime after the board meeting next week. This forthcoming information will include: transportation information, information about schedules, lunch pick-ups, etc.

Beginning Tuesday, January 19th...

If you feel the support above did not solve the issue, please click on your building specific trouble ticket submission. This will trigger a process where the building enters a trouble ticket on your behalf. Support will be provided as soon as possible on a first come, first serve basis.

***Trouble ticket submissions before January 19th will not be seen.

iPad Care While Traveling

As we get closer to the return to on-site learning for students, it’s important to remember that students will be transferring their iPads to and from school. In order to prevent damage, we suggest keeping the device in the backpack at all times and making sure that the screen is not up against anything that would incur force on the front screen. Excessive pressure on the face of the iPad may crack the screen. To further protect the devices, the backpack may be held/secured on the students’ lap.
