Dear Dundee-Crown Parents and Guardians,

I would like to offer my sincere apologies for any difficulties or inconveniences you may have encountered during today’s Materials Pickup and iPad Set Up at Dundee-Crown.

In talking with parents standing in line, I learned that some had waited in excess of three hours. That is absolutely inexcusable.

We have identified some of the issues causing the delay, including a shortage of staff, a shortage of stations, and several technology issues.

The D300 Foundation for Educational Excellence invites the public to participate in their  7th Annual Golf Outing, Pig Roast, and Silent Auction Fundraiser on Friday, July 31st, at the Randall Oaks Golf Club in West Dundee.
