Virtual Backpack

District 54 shares information about community events with our students and families through our Virtual Backpack.

We know that parents are interested in extracurricular activities. At the same time, we don’t want the homework, letters from the teachers, school news and other important district information to get lost among the countless other pieces of paper in our students’ backpacks.

Organizations wishing to post information on this site should review the District 54 Virtual Backpack Guidelines. Per our web publishing guidelines, we cannot post outside organizations’ flyers (PDFs, Word docs, etc.) to our website. If you would like to include your organization’s information on this page, email a link to the information on the organization’s website to Meagan Kasper.


Upcoming Events

The links to information posted to the Virtual Backpack are the responsibility of the group listed and do not imply District 54’s endorsement.
