News and Announcements

All District 300 high schools will be on special final exam schedules on Tuesday, December 19, Wednesday, December 20, and Thursday, December 21. Classes will begin at 10:05 a.m. on these days.

High school students who will be taking the bus to school December 19 – 21 will have adjusted pickup times. Please note this is NOT a simple two-hour difference.

This is a reminder that Friday, December 15 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.

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

Please note: preschool students do have class on Friday and are not impacted by the early release times.

Throughout the holiday season, the District 300 Central Office and our schools are involved in several charitable campaigns.

District 300 would like to thank all our students, staff, and community members who are supporting a cause this holiday season.

If you are interested in supporting any of the charitable campaigns below, please email Anthony McGinn at

Some of the charitable causes include: 

With this evening's light snow and dropping temperatures our district teams will be working to ensure that our lots and sidewalks are safe and free of ice. Later this evening, crews will be salting our lots and entry ways. This will be repeated again first thing in the morning. We expect low temps but clear skies for tomorrow. Please remind novice drivers about stopping distance, reducing speed, and gradual acceleration at lights/stops.

D300 Foundation Grants Now Open!

Dear Parents,

Beginning December 5, 2017, students, teachers and parents across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the fourth annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school.

Congratulations to the Hampshire High School Wrestling Teams:

After tough matches against Prairie Ridge on Thursday and Jacobs on Friday, the Hampshire varsity wrestling team competed at the Tom Dubois Classic in Richmond on Saturday while the freshman team participated in the Freshmen Palatine Tournament. 

On the varsity team, junior Christian Rivero and senior Casey Allen won their respective tournament championships. Senior Mark Brown took 3rd place, senior Nathan Price and freshmen Palmer Larson placed 4th.

From December 8 through December 10, 25% of all proceeds from the Jersey Mike’s located at 123 S. Western Avenue in Carpentersville will be donated to Sleepy Hollow Elementary School.
