--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CAN'T ATTEND THOSE DATES?

While attending one of the scheduled dates is preferred, we recognize that some family schedules will not permit being here on August 3rd or 4th. You are welcome to come in to pick up a schedule, materials, and set up your locker as follows:


  • August 5th & 6th from 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
  • August 9th & 10th from 8:30 am - Noon


PLEASE NOTE: If your student is nervous about the size of the building, they are welcome to come in and walk their schedule during any of these times, once they have received their schedule.

Helpful Hint:

Your student will receive (6th Grade/New), or should already have two locks. We recommend they put one lock on their locker when they set it up (keeping the combination written down somewhere). Take the second lock home and practice unlocking and locking it. When they come to school the first day, put the lock they have practiced on their hall locker. The other lock will become their PE lock.

You Ask... We Answer!

Question: What size cover should I buy for the Chromebook?


Answer: Any sleeve that will fit a Chromebook with an 11.6" (diagonal measurement) screen will work!

The Importance of a Name!

It is important that we learn how to pronounce each student's name correctly. But not all names are easy for all people to pronounce based on the language or culture of origin. If your child has a name that we frequently mispronounce, would you please complete THIS FORM? We will then share it with staff so they can pronounce your child's first and last name correctly.

ORDER SCHOOL SUPPLIES RIGHT FROM YOUR HOME!

We often get calls asking which box(es) to order as the School Tool Box website can be a little overwhelming.
  • Generally, the school supplies you will need are in the Grade Box at each level. (Ex. 6th Grade Box, 7th Grade Box, 8th Grade Box)
  • If your child is enrolled in RISE, OASIS, or INFINITY, you would pick that box for the appropriate grade level INSTEAD of the Grade Box.
  • If your child is enrolled in Band/Choir/Orchestra you can also order the appropriate music box (by grade level).
  • If your child is enrolled in Foreign Language, you may also order the appropriate grade level box.
  • Explore/PLTW boxes are also available for each grade level depending upon what your child signed up for.
  • When in doubt... purchase only the Grade Box you need.

From the Health Office

A physical examination is required for entrance (first day of school) into Preschool, Kindergarten, sixth grade and ninth grade. Students who were fully remote last school year and postponed their submitting their required physical exam/immunization record for entrance must submit their physical exam and immunization record prior to the first day of school. Please access District 303's Health Department's Web Page for specific grade level vaccine requirements (including meningococcal vaccine requirements for high school students) and State of Illinois forms. The health history portion of the physical examination form must be completed and signed by a parent in order for the physical to be valid. An appointment card must be submitted to the health office indicating that a physical exam or immunization is scheduled in the event a student's age makes them ineligible for a vaccine prior to the first day of school or the student is scheduled for a physical exam shortly after the first day of school.


The State of Illinois requires that all students entering school for the first time from out of state shall have/submit a physical examination/vaccine record within 30 days of enrollment in school.


All exams must be dated within one year prior to the date the student enters school.

Physical Examinations may be acquired through your primary medical provider. If you do not have a primary medical provider, you may contact Kane County Health Department for referrals to local health clinics that provide such services.
