District 191 is asking every family to complete an Application for Educational Benefits OR fill out the waiver letting us know that they've chosen not to do so. If your family qualifies, your students can receive free or reduced-price meals and possibly other benefits, including discounts for participation in athletics, band and other activities.
This year, a local company called Schmitty & Sons will become the main bus transportation provider for District 191. Kindergarten and elementary students must live one mile or more from their assigned schools to be eligible for bus transportation. Middle and high school students are transported together and must live 1.5 miles or more from their assigned schools to be eligible for transportation.
Make sure your information is up-to-date in ParentVUE. If you don't already have one, create a ParentVUE account to check daily attendance, view completed grades and more.
