What's Going On?

Tech Checks!

We encourage all parents to do routine checks of their student's usage of technology and devices. These little steps go a long way in making sure that students are safe and using technology appropriately.

Second trimester/Rotation 3 ended on Friday, February 19. A new grading period and new Related Arts classes begin on Monday, February 22. Please be sure to check your student's progress through Powerschool's Parent Portal.

Boundary Exception Requests Due By March 1

Parents, the deadline to request that your child attend a District 93 other than their assigned school is Tuesday, March 1, 2016. Requests should be submitted in a letter to your child's assigned school principal. It should include the reason for the request and state that you understand that transportation is your responsibility and is not provided by the district. Requests are honored on a space-available basis and must be submitted each year.

Parent-Teacher Conference Sign-up

Beginning Monday, February 8 at 12 noon, parents can begin scheduling Parent/Teacher Conferences for the March sessions electronically using PTC Wizard, a secure system that prevents scheduling errors and ensures that conflicts do not occur. Online scheduling for each conference will conclude at noon the day before it is scheduled.

If you created a PTC Wizard account at the beginning of the school year, simply click on your child's school's link towards the bottom of this page and use the Returning Parents? :: Sign in here to log in using your email address and password.
