News and Announcements

From April 4th-17th, the work of hundreds of students from across the Fox Valley Conference will be on display for the Annual Fox Valley Conference Art Show at McHenry County College.

The current District 300 academic calendar designates Monday, April 17 as a student attendance date if an emergency date, such as a ‘snow day,’ has been declared earlier in the year.

As District 300 has not declared an emergency date this year, April 17 has been officially declared a non-attendance day for students.

Elementary Student Report Cards will be available on the parent portal beginning at noon on March 24th. Please see the following directions for multiple ways to access your students report card:

On April 3, an RCS message will be sent to all District 300 families that includes Online Registration resources (in English and Spanish), including step-by-step instructions to complete the online registration process. 

To promote literacy during spring break, District 300 is hosting the #D300Reads campaign, encouraging students to read books between March 27 and March 31.
