News and Announcements

District 300 uses a program called “Securly” to ensure students are engaging in safe internet practices on their school issued devices.

Beginning November 15th, you will receive a weekly email from that will provide a preview of your child’s online activity for the sites he or she visits while off-campus (please note: if your child does not take his or her device off-campus, you will not receive an email from Securly). This message will be sent to any email address you have designated as a primary guardian in the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.

The paraeducators of District 300 are very pleased to announce that we collected 3,320 pounds of much needed items for our servicemen and women during the Veterans Day Collection Drive benefitting Operation Support Our Troops, Illinois.

This could not have been possible without the continued support and generosity of the District 300 community.

Thank you to everyone for your continued support!

An unexpected road closure in Pingree Grove will cause both morning and afternoon bus delays for routes at Hampshire Elementary School, Hampshire Middle School, Hampshire High School, and Wright Elementary School. 

At this time, District 300 believes the delays will last from Monday, November 13 through Friday, November 17.

The road closure occurs at Reinking Road, just north of Wester Blvd. Almost 1/3 of District 300’s busses in the Hampshire area cross that roadway and will be rerouted.

Westfield Community School recently hosted “Volley for a Cure,” a fundraiser committed to the fight against breast cancer.

Nearly 350 attendees, almost all wearing pink, packed the Westfield gym to watch the 8th grade girls volleyball team challenge the 8th grade boys Beta Club members. The event raised $1,800 that will be donated to the American Cancer Research Foundation. 

Volley for a Cure was organized by Westfield teachers Geri Rydz and Sue Woods, with assistance from 7th and 8th grade Beta Club members. 

D300 Parent University will host Worries of the Worldwide Web on November 13 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Westfield Community School (2100 Sleepy Hollow Road, Algonquin, IL).

While technology creates convenience in our lives, danger can lurk in computer and cell phone files. What children may view as an innocent photo can morph into life-altering evidence. How do we keep our kids connected but safe at the same time?
