If you haven't already done so, please register your children for the new school year. Go to www.d114.org and follow the links to complete the online registration process. All new families MUST provide required documentation. 



District Updates

Stay Updated!
Please be sure to check our District calendar for up-to-the minute event updates at https://www.d114.org/district-calendar! We'll update this regularly, so please check to know more about D114 events!


Student Safety Keys

For the safety of our students, please:
  • Please be patient with routes at the beginning of the year. As we work out the logistics, it may take a bit longer to get from place to place. 
  • All Preschool and Kindergarten students MUST be met at their end of day stop by an adult. This is strictly for student safety. Drivers will wait 2 minutes at a stop for an adult to greet these little ones. If an adult does not come to meet the child, he/she will be taken back to Lotus for family/emergency contact pick up. 
  • Students will be brought back to their home school if, at the end of the route, they are still on the bus. Family members/emergency contacts will be called for pick up. 
  • Students will have assigned seats on the bus. This leads to a more pleasant--and safe--ride for everyone!
  • If you choose to drive your child to/from school, please follow traffic patterns in each parking lot.
Finally, due to the number of students on a few of our routes, we have added an additional route to alleviate the buses feeling too crowded. The routes you received in the mail are correct--just wanted you to know that we made the adjustment and we'll have a new but very experienced driver on the D114 team


Thanks in advance for your cooperation and partnership!

Breakfast and Lunch Are FREE!
Please remember that, beginning with this school year, D114 is part of the Federal Community Eligibility Provision (or CEP), meaning that ALL students have access to free lunch and breakfast. The district is reimbursed by the federal government for costs, and this makes breakfast and lunch one less thing for our families to worry about. Students can still bring a lunch if they choose. but the school offered lunch is free to everyone.

Board of Education Vacancy
At the August 13, 2019 Board of Education meeting, Kimberly Sherwin resigned her position. Ms. Sherwin served as a Board member since 2015, and she was a key voice in ensuring the District was fiscally responsible when making decisions. She was also a huge supporter of our efforts.

Please contact me if you are interested in applying for the open two-year position on the D114 Board of Education. Please click here for more information!
