Start Time Reminder

Arriving at school on time and ready for the start of the school day is a vital part of regular attendance. Excessive tardiness contributes to lost learning. Parents/guardians need to make every effort to have their student(s) at school on time for the start of our day at 8:05 a.m. (first bell). Students need to be in their classrooms and ready to begin their instructional school day promptly at 8:15 a.m. This goal can only be achieved with the cooperation of both parent and child. Regular attendance is essential in developing the important skills of responsibility and dependability.

Student Drop Off Reminder

If you are dropping off your student(s) in the morning, please remember that cars are not allowed to enter the front drive. Vehicles are not allowed to park and drop off on Kings Cross Drive. With incoming buses pulling into the front drive having students walk from Kings Cross Drive to the front of the school poses a significant safety issue. Please remember to enter the east lot off of Reliance Lane, circle through the parking lot, and drop your student(s) off with supervisors stationed in the area. Adults will be outside at 7:55 a.m. and will open the car door to safely let students out of vehicles. As a reminder, please do not drop off your child in the morning before 7:55 a.m. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated!

Medications Must be on File with Nurse

Parents must submit forms to the school nurse each year for any medications their child requires while at school.


If your child requires a school nurse to distribute a medication (over the counter and/or prescription); has a food allergy that requires an EpiPen or an inhaler for asthma; or has any other medical concerns, please obtain a signed order from your child's doctor and have an adult bring in the medication to the nurse’s office. Allergy action plans, as well as other forms, can be found on the D103 website under Medication and Management Plans. Please contact your child’s school nurse if you have any questions.

Shoebox Project

Parents, please hold onto your adult shoeboxes for an upcoming Operation Shoebox Packing Project. The second-grade team plans to fill them with school supplies, toiletries, socks, and small toys or stuffed animals. We will collect them in late September or early October. For details on what to collect, please read the Sprague News article on Shoeboxes.

Website Refresh

We are excited to share with you a redesigned and newly refreshed D103 website. We have spent hundreds of hours studying website best practices as well as taking into account community input to result in the current website refresh. Please feel free to bookmark your child’s school website, www.d103.org/sp. While websites are meant to be a repository of the many documents you come to expect from a school district, we will also do our best to push website information out to you so you do not have to search for it.

Heroes Night

The Village of Lincolnshire will recognize teachers from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23, at North Park during the District 103 PTO Back to School Bash at Heroes Night.
