Below you will also find a request from our yearbook coordinators asking for pictures. Please take a minute and share any photos you have of your children from this school year. They are working to create the very best yearbook and can use your support with images.
Apparently were are supposed to get some more snow this weekend. Hopefully that means some outdoor fun for your family!
Have a wonderful weekend,
Thursday, March 25th, 2021 will now be a regular school day from 8:00 am-1:40 pm. Please reach out to your child's teacher at any point during the year if you have questions or concerns.
Friday, March 26th is still a School Improvement Day for all staff and a non-attendance day for D303 students.
We still need Yearbook photos!! Students and families, though this year may look different than previous years, we still want to put together a great yearbook for your family and we need your help!! Please send us any photos you would like to be included. They could be of your child working on a school project, reading their favorite book, artwork, at home during remote school, having fun during an activity or practicing an instrument. Did they make a giant snowman over winter break and want to share it? Send it to us!
Our goal is to collect as many memories as we can for our 2020-2021 yearbook and remember we are still Better Together, even if we are not all under one roof. Additionally, if your children are remote and didn't get their picture taken for the yearbook, we would love to still include them! Please submit your own headshot to our yearbook coordinators.
*Remember to include the name of your student and grade level.
We appreciate your support!

Middle School Transfer Requests
REQUEST PERIOD OPEN FROM FEB. 1 - FEB. 26
Families who wish to submit a Middle School Transfer request may do so beginning February 1, 2021. Families must complete a separate form for each student they want to be transferred. Requests are granted based on space available. This means that siblings are not guaranteed placement. A written decision will be communicated to families before spring break.
Once the request is approved, a student may remain at that middle school throughout his or her middle school career, as long as the student resides in District 303.
Families of students granted permission to attend a school outside of their assigned attendance area are responsible for their own transportation.
Students will return to their assigned attendance area high school regardless of the middle school attended.
The Middle School Transfer request window will close at 4:00pm on February 26, 2021.
If you have questions, please contact Tammy Marsan at: 331-228-2397.
