News and Announcements

Congratulations to Dundee Crown’s First STEP, winners of the 2016 National Pitch Competition!

First STEP competed against four other high schools and was awarded the $5,000 grand prize during the July 20th INCubatoredu National Pitch Night Competition in Chicago.

This message is to provide guidance as it relates to students who participate in athletic activities or conditioning events during the summer. At the present time there will be no cancellation of athletic or conditioning activities. The district has sent out reminders to all athletic coaches and support staff as it relates to IHSA and District guidelines. IHSA provides the following guidelines:

1. Provide ample amounts of water. This means that water should always be available and athletes should be able to hydrate as they need/desire.

Applications are now being accepted for free or reduced-price meals for the 2016-2017 school year. 

Information is available at Fee Waiver forms for students attending Carpentersville Middle School, Lakewood, Golfview, Meadowdale, Parkview, or Perry are available at each school’s main office.

In preparation for next year’s upcoming 1:1 program, District 300 has changed how we manage Google account names. If you are a student with a D300 Google account, your account name has changed.

For your reference, bus routing information for all students will be mailed home beginning in August. All bus routing information should be delivered to mail boxes no later than one week before the school year begins on August 16.
