KidCare and Enrichment programs
Online registration for the District’s KidCare and Enrichment programs has opened and is available online at www.northbrook28.net.KidCare is the District’s before-and after-school care program for kindergarten through fifth grade students, providing a safe, fun environment with activities including crafts, games, and homework time. Enrichment courses are held after school and are open to students in first through fifth grade. Courses being offered this fall include cooking, yoga, and arts and crafts, robotics, chess, flag football, and basketball. Parents are encouraged to check out the KidCare and Enrichment pages on the District website for more information about these programs.
District 28 is moving to an online system for families to fill out forms and update student information sheets for the 2014-2015 school year. Both new and returning families will be using the InfoSnap system to complete this process, which is replacing much of the material that had been mailed home in the “Back to School” packet. The District’s main goal in moving to this new system is to make the system more efficient for parents and school staff.
During the week of Aug. 4, families will receive a letter in the mail with their family’s unique code to log on to the InfoSnap online portal. The letter will also provide directions and additional information. Families are encouraged to complete the online enrollment process as soon as possible after receiving the code.
Families will still receive a mailing in the first two weeks of August with the District’s parent calendar and several forms that have not been transitioned to the online system yet.
