Dear District 30 Parents,
We are excited to kick off the 2022-23 school year! On behalf of the District 30 Board of Education and staff, I extend a warm welcome to all within our District 30 Family. District 30 exists to create a community that craves learning, fosters resiliency, and cares deeply for every child. We benefit from an invested Board of Education, talented administrators and staff, and outstanding students!
Together, we also continue to mourn those lost, injured, and impacted by the senseless violence in Highland Park’s Fourth of July Parade. We are reminded that our number one defense is our connected community, employing the “see something, say something” mantra. This tragic event also reinforces the importance of our emergency protocols. We will continue to secure entrances, have hardened our buildings, can place schools into lockdowns with a single button, and will practice options-based responses. We will kick off the year with the Glenview and Northbrook Police Departments reviewing these skills with staff. We will continue to evolve them together with both staff and students throughout the school year.
We share incredible pride in uniting and overcoming the challenges we have faced over the past two years. This school year, we all look forward to reclaiming the ceremonies and traditions that enrich our culture. District 30’s educators are among the finest in the world. Although the global pandemic isn’t at an end, we are in a different stage. As plans evolve, District 30’s School Operations website will be updated.
Please also watch your email inbox in early September, when District 30 will send a brief survey to hear your input on our communications efforts. We want to learn the best ways to keep you informed and find out what information is most important to you!
We welcome you again and look forward to an outstanding 2022-23 school year!
Dr. Brian K. Wegley
Superintendent of Schools
