Strategic Planning. Vaccine Opportunities, Board Meeting, Parent Education Series, Registration, PTO Meeting, and Upcoming Events

May 14, 2021

Dear District 31 Community,

As we approach the summer, the District is planning for next year and beyond by developing a new strategic plan that reflects where we are as a school community and better defines where we would like to be in the future. Community members are welcome to follow the strategic planning progress at www.district31.net/strategicplan.

Pfizer Vaccine Opportunities for District Families
District 31 currently has two vaccine opportunities available for our District 31 community. One vaccine opportunity at Field on May 21 (Register Here!) and one opportunity provided by the Village of Northbrook on May 18. Although District 31 students and families are able to sign up for this clinic, we encourage District 31 families to take advantage of the exclusive District 31 Clinic at Field on the May 21 date before booking the village offerings. Learn more and register here.

Board of Education Meeting
The Board of Education will hold its regularly scheduled May meeting on Thursday, May 20 at 7 p.m. You can find the agenda, viewing link and public comment form here on Tuesday. All are welcome to attend!

Parent Education Series Monday, May 24
Join us in our upcoming Parent Education Series on Monday, May 24 at 7 p.m. to learn about the Advanced Learning Program (formerly the Enriched Learning Program) and what it will look like for students in grades 4 - 8 during the 2021 - 2022 school year.

2021 - 2022 Registration
The school registration process for next school year is underway. We encourage all of our families to register as soon as possible, as it assists with planning and preparation. Registration fees can be paid at a later date if needed.  Also, any bus registration needs to be done by July 1. Please note that next year, per IDPH/CCDPH guidelines, there may be up to 50 students on a specific route. Learn more at www.district31.net/registration.
