News and Announcements

Dear Parents and Guardians,

District staff have been hard at work on numerous projects designed to ensure District 300 is prepared to successfully open schools on August 15. I want to provide several important updates to keep you informed and to address any questions you may have.

  • High Schools:  August 2

Please use the step-by-step guide to help you access the schedule document, which includes middle and high school locker information as well.

Have you heard about the INCubatoredu program at Dundee-Crown High School?

In now its 3rd year, INCubatoredu@dchs provides students with the opportunity to learn firsthand the ins and outs of starting a business. Students enrolled in the program work in teams to create and fully develop their own product or service resulting in a functioning business.

District 300 has been made aware of the allegations and subsequent charges involving a former substitute teacher. Upon notification, the District cooperated fully with the Carpentersville Police Department in the investigation of this matter. In accordance with our policy, once we became aware of the allegations, the District took steps to immediately suspend any and all subsequent employment and to bar this individual from having any contact with our students, staff, or schools.

As a reminder, all incoming Early Childhood (first time students), Kindergarten, 6th grade, 9th grade, and 12th grade students must be up-to-date with physical examination and immunization requirements before August 1, 2017. 

District 300 participates in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) allowing the district, through its partnership with Aramark, to offer school breakfast and school lunch to our students at all schools*.   Meal prices for 2017/2018 at the D300 schools will be $1.50 for breakfast and $2.85 for lunch.  Families are invited to complete a Household Eligibility Application to determine if they are eligible to receive meals for free or at a reduced price ($0.30 for breakfast or $0.40 for lunch).

The Infinite Campus Part Portal will be down on Monday, July 10 from 7pm to 9pm for routine maintenance. We thank you for your patience in this process.

District 300’s annual “Stuff the Bus” school supply drive benefitting students in need is scheduled for Saturday, July 15, from 9am to 1pm, at the Walmart located at 1410 S. Randall Road, Algonquin (adjacent to Algonquin Commons).

A District 300 bus will be stationed by the Walmart front entrance collecting donations and school supplies to support McKinney Vento (homeless) students and students receiving free and reduced lunch who will attend District 300 schools in the fall.

Have you ever considered becoming a teacher in your community? If so, District 300 may have an exciting job opportunity for you!

District 300 is looking for individuals interested in becoming industrial education teachers. We are currently looking for individuals who would like to share their knowledge in Auto Mechanics, Woodworking, CAD, Video Production, and Electricity Fields.

Our middle school start and end times (i.e. bell times) have consistently been 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. since the 2008-2009 school year.   Prior to the 2008-2009 school year, bell times for the middle schools was 9:10 a.m. to 3:55 p.m.  Under the current schedule, we have struggled with our ability to support “on time” afternoon transportation at middle schools. These delays have also impacted after school athletics and other activities that rely upon availability of drivers to support their transportation needs.
