Permission to Walk Home


If you allow your child to walk home independently of an adult, please let us know so that we can create a tag for your child. There are times where we have different staff on duty and it is helpful if we have a symbol/tag to see for confirmation of safety.

If you allow your child to walk home independently of an adult please email their teacher and Mrs. Flanigan sharon.flanigan@d303.org to let us know and then we would have that on file, that would be greatly appreciated.

District 303 is pleased to present its lineup of Parent Education sessions for the 2023-2024 school year.

The Parent Education series (formerly Parent University) includes informational meetings and workshops intended to empower parents and guardians to support their children’s academic, social and emotional needs. Become informed on specialized topics, engage in two-way dialogue with speakers and fellow parents, and become a support resource for others.

Sessions for this school year will focus on bullying prevention, addressing anxiety, and include film screenings and discussions about the impact of screen time and cultural awareness. The schedule also includes college preparation workshops hosted by our high schools. Sessions were selected based in part on feedback from District 303 parents.

Explore the full lineup of sessions here. Signup forms for each session will be made available closer to the session dates. New this year, you can also register for Parent Education notifications and receive alerts as new information and session recaps become available.

Serie de Educacion para Padres

El Distrito 303 se complace en presentar su línea de sesiones de Educación para Padres para el año escolar 2023-2024.

La serie de Educación para Padres (anteriormente Universidad para Padres) incluye reuniones informativas y talleres destinados a capacitar a los padres y tutores para apoyar las necesidades académicas, sociales y emocionales de sus hijos. Infórmese sobre temas especializados, participe en un diálogo bidireccional con los presentadores y otros padres, y conviértase en un recurso de apoyo para los demás.

Las sesiones de este año escolar se centrarán en la prevención del acoso escolar, cómo abordar la ansiedad, e incluirán proyecciones de películas y pláticas sobre el impacto del tiempo frente a la pantalla y la concienciación cultural. El programa también incluye talleres de preparación para la universidad organizados por nuestras escuelas preparatorias. Las sesiones fueron seleccionadas basándose en parte en los comentarios de los padres del Distrito 303.

Explore la lista completa de sesiones aquí. Los formularios de inscripción para cada sesión estarán disponibles cuando se acerquen las fechas de las sesiones. Nuevo este año, también puede registrarse para recibir notificaciones de Educación para Padres y recibir alertas cuando haya nueva información y resúmenes de las sesiones.
