USDA has extended the summer food program so all meals are now FREE to every child under the age of 18. We are still offering meals as usual to be sent home with your child on their scheduled attendance day or picked up on Fridays. If you wish NOT to pre-order, we also now offer daily pick up at the High School and Elementary/Middle School. Pick up is 1p.m. -2p.m. daily behind the high school and behind the Elementary/Middle school . This daily pickup is available for all children under the age of 18 not just District #300 students. Click the link below to continue to pre-order your child's remote meals, this still needs to be filled out weekly for each child. https://forms.gle/85Jux1CmDzSnFJ7MA

DES Families, The procedures for full time remote and Chromebook rental at the elementary school are as follows: If you selected full time remote, I will be setting up schedules for families by grade level to collect books and materials early next week. Please watch for that email schedule Monday. For Chromebook rentals . . . if you elected full time remote, those will be available at the same time you collect grade level books and materials. We will provide a simple tutorial for parents and answer any questions. The devices do not have cases, so you may want to get a small laptop case or backpack to bring on the resource collection day. For Chromebook rentals . . . if your student is attending in person, he or she will bring home a rental agreement on the first day of school. Please return this the next in person day and your student will be issued a device to bring home. During the first week of school, we will be focusing on logging in to our digital resources and programs to ensure our students know the procedures and are successful when working on their assignments at home.

8th Grade Promotion DMS 8th Grade Parents and Students: I hope you are all enjoying your summer. I wanted to pass along some important information regarding our 8th grade promotion. We are finalizing details of our ceremony in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the Illinois State Board of Education and Illinois Department of Public Health. Our ceremony is set for Friday, July 24th, at 6:00pm. The ceremony will be held at our High School football field. Due to the precautions necessary because of COVID-19, the ceremony will look very different than it has in the past. In preparation for the ceremony, we will have a drive through T-shirt and DVD pickup on Monday, July 13th. Every 8th grader that is participating in the ceremony will wear an 8th grade t-shirt that was designed specifically for this ceremony. You can pick this t-shirt up on the 13th between the hours of 10am-1pm and 3pm-6pm in front of DuQuoin Middle School. Please follow the circle drive in front of the school. 8th grade parent volunteers will be there to give you your t-shirt and a copy of the promotion DVD they made for every 8th grader. Every 8th grader must wear this t-shirt during the ceremony. I will send out more detailed information regarding the ceremony once we have approval on our plan. Please contact me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 542-2646 ext. 1150.
