District 41 Kids Foundation Provides Support to Families

The D41 Kids Foundation has partnered with the District's Community Outreach program to support students most at-risk. The Foundation is working directly with the schools to make sure the needs are being met for all families. The needs continue to increase and we are grateful to all of the generous donors! Gift cards to grocery stores have already been purchased and delivered to families. Thank you for your support.

Please visit the D41 Kids Foundation website to donate to this effort: https://www.d41kids.org/donate/

Remote Learning Moving Forward

Last Friday, information was sent out to the District 41 community with updates and specific details about remote learning. Remote Learning Days do count as instructional days and do not have to be made up. With this change to Remote Learning Days (from Act of God Days) Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) has put new guidelines into effect.

The DuPage Regional Office of Education and Glen Ellyn School District 41 invite everyone across our community to join us on April 8th at 6:30 p.m. for Part 3 in a series of 4 live streams with Dr. Nancy Zarse of the Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
