October is National Bullying Prevention Month and District 300 invites the entire community to help raise bullying prevention awareness.

During the first week of October, D300 will inform students about different forms of bullying and the District’s position on bullying in schools.

October 5 is Blue Shirt Day World Day of Bullying Prevention and students and staff from all District 300 schools will wear blue shirts to support bullying prevention.

Join District 300 Superintendent Fred Heid and members of the District 300 administration team to discuss potential changes to attendance boundaries that may impact students attending Carpentersville Middle School, Golfview Elementary, Lakewood School, Meadowdale Elementary, Parkview Elementary, and Perry Elementary.

Attendees will learn how potential changes in attendance boundaries may impact their students and have the opportunity to communicate their opinions.

On Wednesday, September 23, School District U-46 in Elgin reported some closures due to contamination in their AC water towers Their annual inspection revealed unacceptable levels of Legionella bacteria at three schools. All three schools were closed and students were relocated to alternate sites. Knowing that this news may lead to questions about our own District 300 inspections, I would like to outline our process and allay any concerns.

Parents of Sleepy Hollow Elementary Students:

Sleepy Hollow Elementary will be open today, Friday, September 18.. Thank you to ComEd for making the school a priority. There are still main lines down in the community that will not be repaired until noon. However, ComEd was able to reroute power and bring the school online for the District.
