Parent Guidance on Screen Time
Check out this article about the recommended amount of screen time.
Think about how media can affect our children.
Morning Drop Off / Afternoon Pick Up
Drop off begins at 8:15am. (There is no supervision prior to 8:15am)
Before School Line Up Locations
Grade Kindergarten, 1st , 2nd by door 6 and 7 and enter door 5
Grade 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th on the basketball courts and enter door 4
**Bus Riders will line up by Door 1.
After School Pick Up
Students will exit the door they enter.
Our teachers need your child's pick up information. Please share with them whether your child is a parent pick up, walker, turnabout pick up, Boys & Girls club or older sibling picking up.
If you are driving your child to or from school, you must use the turnabout on Streamwood Boulevard. Drivers must stay in their cars. Staff will escort your child to their line up location. There is no parking in the turnabout.
** In order for our process to work, it takes patience. **
Student Grades in Infinite Campus
Parent engagement is crucial to academic success, and as a District, we want to ensure our parents are informed and engaged in their child’s education. Infinite Campus is an online tool that gives parents and guardians access to their child’s attendance, teacher’s contact information, bus schedule (if applicable), and most importantly grades.
Visit u-46.org/reportcards for an overview of U-46 Student Progress Reports and Report Cards and instructions on how to access and navigate the Infinite Campus Parent Portal so that you are able to see your child’s in-progress grades. Remember that parents can customize the settings to be notified about assignment and grade updates.
