A Message from D303

Dear District 303 In-Person Middle and High School Families,

Beginning April 5, 2021, we are excited to be offering middle school and high school in-person students in-person instruction five days a week. While we are working to maintain as much continuity as possible with schedules, there are some changes to some of our procedures and routines due to the increase in the number of students attending school each day.

Thompson and Wredling Middle Schools

  • Bell schedules will remain the same.

  • Since students will be attending every day, there will no longer be asynchronous instruction.

  • As bus routes are balanced to accommodate additional students, there may be some route changes for your child. Bus schedules will be available in eLink by 9:00 a.m. on April 2. You may find bus route information in the Home Access Center under Home>>School Links Tab>>Bus Route Information.

  • Students will order lunch by 9:30 a.m. every day and eat at school. At the same time, students may order breakfast they can pick up after school for the next morning.

St. Charles East and St. Charles North High Schools

  • Bell schedules will remain the same.

  • As bus routes are balanced to accommodate additional students, there may be some route changes for your child. Bus schedules will be available in eLink by 9:00 a.m. on April 2. You may find bus route information in the Home Access Center under Home>>School Links Tab>>Bus Route Information.

  • Students will continue to pick up a grab-and-go meal at the end of the day that includes lunch for that day and breakfast for the next day.

Keeping our schools open to increased in-person learning is a partnership between the district, our families, and the community. As a district, we will continue to implement safety precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at school. We also request that you and your family take measures to stay safe during spring break. By following the mitigation strategies outlined by the Centers for Disease Control, the Illinois Department of Public Health, and the Kane County Health Department, we can provide a safe return to school for our students and staff. Thanks for your continued support of the district. We look forward to taking this next step in providing increased in-person opportunities for our students.

Senior Scholarships: We received the largest number of scholarship applications this year; they are currently “out” for independent review by a panel of three members.

Senior Yard Signs: The PTO is coordinating with the CCR office to distribute Senior Yard Signs to all seniors with their cap and gown pickup. Currently, pick-up is scheduled for April 26 and April 27 during the day and April 27 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. This will ensure all seniors receive a sign and can place them wherever they choose. The signs will be available to be displayed 3 weeks earlier than in past years.

Seal of Biliteracy

Do you communicate in another language other than English? Are you enrolled in a world language course at SCN? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you might want to consider taking the Seal of Biliteracy exam.

Students who meet the state-approved proficiency level in speaking, listening, reading and writing, may receive the Seal of Biliteracy or Commendation distinction on their diploma and transcript. In addition, many colleges and universities accept the State Seal of Biliteracy as equivalent to two years of foreign language coursework taken in high school and may provide college credit.

Please visit the North High School website to find out more information about the test, the associated fee, and registration for the exam. The test will be administered on Saturday, April 10. The deadline to sign up is Wednesday, April 7.

Sello de alfabetización bilingüe

¿Te comunicas en otro idioma en casa? ¿Estás inscrito en un curso de idioma del mundo en SCN? ¿Te gustaría poner tu dominio de ese idioma a la prueba? Si tu respuesta es Sí, a alguna de estas preguntas, considera tomar el examen de alfabetización bilingüe.

Estudiantes que demuestren comprensión de discurso, comprensión auditiva, lectura y escritura, a un nivel aprobado por el estado podrán recibir el Sello de Alfabetización Bilingüe o un reconocimiento distinguido en su diploma y en su expediente académico. Además, varias universidades y colegios aceptan el Sello de Alfabetización como un equivalente de dos años de un curso de lenguaje extrajero tomado en la preparatoria y pueden proveer crédito universitario.

Visita la página de North High School, para saber más información, cargos asociados, o para registrarte al examen. El examen será administrado el 10 de Abril. El último día para registrarse es el miércoles 7 de abril.
