Block Party Thank You

Thank you for an amazing Block Party. It was so wonderful to see so many families. Thanks to all of our volunteers who helped make this event a success!

Curriculum Night

Due to the designation of “High Community Transmission” in both DuPage and Kane counties and the large size of each school’s Back to School/Curriculum Night Events, District 303 will be providing these events virtually this fall. For Davis, families will receive curriculum night video links on Tuesday, August 31, 2021. For Richmond, families will receive video links on Tuesday, August 24, 2021.

We look forward to welcoming our families when it is safe to do so.
