News and Announcements

Dear Parent/Guardian,

This a reminder that beginning next school year (Fall 2015), all students entering the sixth and twelfth grade will be required to show proof of recent meningococcal vaccination. 

Last Friday, Hampshire High School baseball players Adam Bell, Anthony Chomenko, Alex Crinigan, Kyle Rutkowski, Nick Mohlman, and sophomore coach Daniel Napper presented District 300 student Bella Yakos with a gold-painted bat signed by the Chicago Cubs.

Shortly before Hampshire’s May 16th game against Woodstock North, outfielder Nick Mohlman read a newspaper article about Bella’s battle with Stage 4 neuroblastoma. 

As a courtesey to our stakeholders, D300 would like to provide information regarding upcoming road improvement projects that may impact commutes. 

Q: When does the full-day kindergarten expansion occur?

A: The full-day kindergarten expansion begins in the fall of 2015.

Q: Is there a cost?

A: Students will be charged the same $130.00 fee as those in grades 1-5.

Schools will follow up with any families who paid the adjusted $100.00 fee during registration.

There will be no monthly tuition fee.

It is with great excitement that Superintendent Fred Heid and the District 300 Board of Education announce the approval of the district-wide expansion of full-day kindergarten.

Three District 300 ensembles have been chosen to present at the Illinois Music Education Association’s (ILMEA) Conference in Peoria, Illinois.

On June 8th, District 300 buildings will officially begin operating under summer business hours.

Please view the table below to determine when your building will be open this summer.

If you have any questions regarding summer business hours, please contact your school’s main office. 


Sarah Burnett, a first grade teacher at Lincoln Prairie Elementary School, is this month’s featured teacher in District 300’s Educator Spotlight Series.

Visit to watch the outstanding work Sarah is accomplishing inside her classroom to ensure her students are ready for middle school by providing a strong foundation of literacy and numeracy.


Parents and Guardians,

I am delighted to share information regarding the Illinois legislature’s passage of a House Bill that will positively impact District 300 students and further our mission to ensure all students are college or career ready upon graduation.

District 300 Community,

Thank you to each of you who took the time to communicate your thoughts regarding District 300’s graduation requirements during last week’s “You Spoke, We Listened” question.
