The New School Year Begins Tuesday, August 15th

District 300 would to remind our community that the new school year begins on Tuesday, August 15th.

Elementary schools will run from 8:00 am to 2:15 pm, middle schools from 8:55 am to 3:40 pm, and high schools 7:30 am to 2:58 pm.

During the first few weeks of school we want to remind drivers to use caution when:

  • Driving through school zones
  • Approaching crosswalks where students may be crossing
  • Following school buses as they stop frequently. Remember not to pass a bus with its stop arm extended as students may not be visible as they attempt to cross the road

Also, it takes a few weeks for the traffic patterns to adjust at the start of the year. Busses, student drivers, and parents will each add to the traffic pattern, so please allow yourself some additional time each morning to ensure a safe and stress-free commute. 

In District 300, our mission is to ensure all of our students are college and career ready upon graduation and the first day of a new school year is another milestone on each student’s journey.

District 300 welcomes you to the 2017-2018 school year and we look forward to celebrating our first day of classes on Tuesday, August 15th.
