Greetings Families & Friends of Medinah District #11, 

It's hard to believe that another winter season is here.  With this in mind, if District #11 requires a school closing due to weather conditions or other emergency situation, several means of communicating this information are as follows:

1)  A telephone call using our rapid phone notification system

2)  An email will be sent via Blackboard Connect

3)  Posted on the District website, Facebook and Twitter

If you haven't done so already, "like" us on our new Facebook page, and don't forget to follow us on Twitter!

Mark you calendar for these upcoming events:

MAP Testing for Grades 1-8 will begin January 12.

Family Wellness Night - Thursday, January 29

Illinois 5Essentials Survey - available online at survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois from January 12 - March 13.  Parents are asked to take this survey in order to identify strengths and weaknesses in Medinah's learning environment.

S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Open House for families of 5th-8th graders will be held on February 16 at the Technology Center of DuPage.  Exhibitors will engage participants in hands-on activities.  Interested attendees must register for the event in early January at stemdupage.com/

Kindergarten registration for 2015-16 will be held on March 12 at 6:00 p.m. at Primary School.  Call 630-529-9788  for more information.
