D303 Administration has worked with the Board of Education to establish a routine summary on the health of District 303 through a Data Dashboard. This chart, which will be updated monthly on the District website, provides an overview of nine important measurements in the categories of Academics, Operations and Belonging.

A note from the Health Office:
It’s never too early to start planning!!
Dental Examination Requirements
Students in kindergarten, second, sixth and ninth grades must submit evidence of a dental examination by May 15th of that school year. Dental exams must be completed within 18 months prior to May 15th.
We are seeing an increase in the amount of gastrointestinal related illness in our school and within the D303 community. Common reported symptoms are: nausea, vomiting and stomach pain. Fever, headache, body aches and diarrhea may also be present. Symptoms usually develop 12 to 48 hours after being exposed to a gastrointestinal illness. Most people will see improvement within 1 to 3 days without treatment.
Gastrointestinal illness can be passed through the feces and vomit of infected persons. Students can become infected by person-to-person contact, eating contaminated food or water, by coming into contact with contaminated surfaces, or by tiny particles in vomit spread through the air that land on surfaces or enter a person’s mouth.
Proper hand hygiene practices are the best way to prevent the transmission of gastrointestinal illness. Hands should be washed with warm water and soap. Hands should be scrubbed for 20 seconds. Hand sanitizer can be used in addition to handwashing, but hand sanitizer should not be a substitute for handwashing.
Students with vomiting or diarrhea should not attend school while symptoms are present. D303 guidelines allow a student to return to school as long as there is no vomiting or diarrhea within a 24 hour period without using medication to control these symptoms. Students should also be fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication. A fever is a temperature of 100 F or greater .
