Covid Dashboard

Positive cases of COVID-19 at each school in Indian Prairie 204 can be found on the District's COVID Dashboard. The information is updated each Monday by 4 pm. If your child is in close contact with someone who tested positive, a member of the COVID-19 Response Team will notify you directly regarding the need to quarantine as a precaution.

Missing Materials - Reminder

Our Young LMC is still working to collect materials that were sent home at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. Each student in K-5 received a blue bag with resources from their teacher, as well as two LMC books. Hundreds of those books are still gone from our library. Please check at home to see if you still have any books from the LMC. They should have a barcode label on the back and another label on the spine. Thank you for your help locating books from Young.
