The Virtual Backpack is the place to find electronic versions of the notes and information that would appear in a child’s backpack. The District Backpack has events and information of interest to families district-wide. Each school also has a backpack with events and information of interest to families in that school.
Items included in the backpacks are accepted and posted in conjunction with Section 8:25 of the CUSD 10 Board of Education.
Policy Manual: “Community, educational, charitable, recreational or similar groups may, under procedures established by the Superintendent, advertise event pertinent to students’ interests or involvement. All advertisements must (1) be student-oriented, (2) prominently display the sponsoring organization’s name, and (3) be approved in advance by the Superintendent or designee. The District reserves the right to decide where and when any advertisement or flyer is distributed, displayed or posted.”
While we appreciate everything local businesses do for our school community, we are unable to post information that advertises local businesses.
To submit an item for possible inclusion in the District Backpack, please email detailed information including contact name and phone number to Susan Frechman firstname.lastname@example.org. Attach a PDF of the event flier and/or form to appear in the backpack.
