News and Announcements

Dear Parents and Guardians,

District 300 continues to mourn last week’s horrific tragedy in Broward County Florida. As a former Floridian, this tragedy hit close to home and I send my deepest condolences to the students, staff, and community impacted by this senseless act. As an educator, it further solidified my ongoing commitment to improve school safety.

Our highest priority remains, and always will be, the safety and security of our students and our staff.

This is a reminder that Friday, February 16th, is an early release day.

On an early release day: 

  • all elementary schools will run from 8:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.
  • all middle schools will run from 8:55 a.m. to 1:25 p.m.
  • all high schools will run from 7:30 a.m. to 12:43 p.m.

Preschool students do not have class on February 16th.

Travel methods home on early release days are no different than normal school days (walk, drive, bus, pick-up, etc.).

La mayor prioridad del Distrito 300 es la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y nuestro personal. Como tal, debido a la tragedia de ayer en Florida, agentes de policía estarán estacionados en las tres escuelas preparatorias del Distrito 300 el 15 de febrero para proporcionar un mayor nivel de seguridad. Por favor, tenga en cuenta que en este momento no hay ni un aumento de riesgo o preocupación atípica en ninguna de nuestras escuelas. La presencia policial es una medida proactiva para ofrecer una mayor asistencia a nuestra comunidad.

District 300’s highest priority is the safety of our students and our staff. As such, in response to yesterday’s tragedy in Florida, police officers will be stationed at all three District 300 high schools on February 15th to provide an increased level of support.  Please know there is no increased risk or atypical concern at any of our schools at this time. The police presence is a proactive measure to offer increased assistance to our community.

D300 University will host a program called: Educational Rights and Responsibilities: Understanding Special Education in Illinois at Westfield Community School on Monday, February 12th at 6:30 p.m.

The program is designed to help parents of children with disabilities learn more information about special education. Topics include: special education referral and evaluation, eligibility, response to intervention, least restrictive environment, secondary transition, IEPs, behavior plans, discipline, and a special emphasis on conflict resolution.

District 300 will host an Elgin Community College Dual Credit Information Night at Elgin Community College for incoming juniors and seniors and thier parents on Monday, February 12 at 6:00 p.m. (this meeting is rescheduled from February 8th). The meeting will take place in the Spartan Auditorium, Building G.

Infinite Campus will be down on Friday, February 9th starting at approximately 11:00 p.m. Infinite Campus is expected to be down for 2-3 hours.

In keeping with our commitment to student and staff safety, District 300 schools will be closed on Friday, February 9th. Our area is projected to receive 6-12 inches of snow. Normally, District 300 would have very little concern and a high level of confidence in our school and village crews to clear the roads. These unsung heroes work tirelessly throughout the night to clear and salt our roads. However, the timing of this storm and projected snowfall amounts are the issue. The storm will begin around 6:00 p.m.

In anticipation of this evening’s weather, District 300 has canceled all after-school events, athletics, and activities that occur after 5:00 p.m. on February 8th. Events, athletics, and activities that are scheduled to begin immediately following dismissal may begin at their regular start time, but must conclude before 5:00 p.m. regardless of the originally scheduled end time.
