Principal’s Corner 4-28-17
Dear Hale community,
It’s hard to believe that next week May will be here. As we make our way to the end of the school year our students and staff are still hard at work reaching their goals.
Check out the latest edition of the Hale Hotline.
Residency Renewal For All Families and Infinite Campus Parent Portal Information
It is time to register for the 2017–18 school year. On April 3rd, parents whose students will attend a District 54 school next year were mailed registration instructions for the 2017–2018 school year.
To complete the registration process, all District 54 families are required to prove residency annually at the time of registration. For a list of documents needed to fulfill residency requirements, please click here. All documentation provided must be current, valid for 2017-2018, and reflect name and address within the boundaries of District 54.
Parents are encouraged to complete this process online through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. The portal is a website where parents and guardians can log in and view information about your children’s grades, assignments, immunizations, test scores, demographic information and much more. You will be able to pay your fees and upload your proof of residency through the parent portal (although paper copies will still be accepted at our schools as well).
In addition, we are launching a new online report card for the third trimester. Everyone who has a portal account will be able to see their children’s report cards online by June 5, whereas the hard copies won’t be mailed until June 14. All parents and guardians who have not previously created a portal account, but have supplied District 54 with an email address, should have received an email the first week of April, with a direct link to sign up for the portal. If you did not receive an email but would like to create a portal account, please contact our office.
Please be sure to register by Monday, May 1st to ensure your child is placed on a class list for next year. If you have questions, please call the school office.
