Happy New Year and Welcome Back!
We are well into the cold weather season and it is important for families to be aware of our extreme weather communication procedures. Always assume that school will be open. We have a wonderful maintenance and custodial staff who work to ensure our schools are warm and that areas around the schools are clear of snow and ice. Our bus drivers are prepared to transport children in snowy conditions, but be aware that buses may run behind schedule due to road conditions. In the event of extreme weather where it is necessary to close schools, parents will be notified as early as possible through a phone and email message from the district. We will also post closings prominently on our website and on district and school Facebook and Twitter accounts. Please know that your children are well taken care of in our schools during the cold winter months.
The District 100 staff has spent a great deal of time learning to utilize PowerSchool Learning to provide students with a consistent learning management system in our classrooms and to communicate with parents. Student report cards are accessible through PowerSchool and parents can visit school and class pages for information on specific school activities and classroom instruction through PowerSchool Learning. Please visit our website for more information about creating accounts.
We are excited to announce a series of parent workshops focusing on how your child learns. The following workshops will be offered from 6:45 to 7:45 at Freedom Middle School and are open to all D100 families:
