  • 2017-18 Parent Communication

    West Chicago Community High School/Community High School District 94

     

    Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! There are many exciting changes in store this school year. We want to keep you informed. We have many school and district level communication vehicles to do just that.

    1.       PowerSchool

    PowerSchool is where you can view grades and attendance, and update home address, phone number and email address. For assistance logging in to PowerSchool, please contact Beth Schuck at bschuck@d94.org or via phone at (630) 876-6227. It is important to keep your contact information up to date as we draw from this database for emergency phone calls and parent emails.

    2.       SchoolMessenger Notification System – Phone, email and Text (NEW!)

    This notification system is used to send phone calls and emails to parents for attendance, information, and emergencies. It draws from the database of contact information in PowerSchool. We have also asked for student cell phone numbers so we can contact students directly in an emergency.

    Text Messages (NEW!):  There is an “opt in” process to receive emergency text messages from the District. Text “Yes” to 68453, or watch for a text in mid-late October to the mobile device we have on file for you: “WCCHS text messages. Reply Y for aprx 3 msgs/mo. Txt HELP 4info. Msg & data rates may apply. See schoolmessenger.com/tm”.

    3.       “For Parents” Section of our Website

    Check out the “For Parents” section of our website. It is located in the “Quick Links” section on the left side of the home page at www.d94.org. If you have a question, check this area of our website first. Click the first link in this section to find a “Who can help me?” topic list.

    4.       Staff Directory

    All of our staff contact information is listed in the staff directory on our website. On the home page, www.d94.org, look for the “Directory” icon in the upper right hand corner. You can search for a staff member by first or last name, title, or department/division. To view all staff, just click the “Submit” button.

    5.       Calendar

    A calendar of events can be found on the right side of our home page at www.d94.org. In addition, by clicking “Calendar” in the upper right hand corner of our home page, you can find links to our official calendar, Athletic Department calendar, and see a full month view of the District calendar.         

    6.       District News

    Also on our home page, located in the center section, is current news. Emergency messages will also appear at the top of this section, such as school closings due to weather, etc.

    7.       Student Announcements

    Announcements are provided daily to students, and are available by clicking the link on the right side of our home page so parents can view them as well.

    8.       Community eNewsletter (eNews)

    During the school year, a weekly eNewsletter is emailed to students, parents, and community members highlighting news from the past week. Features include information from the Superintendent, articles from department/division heads, and more. By providing an email address at registration you are subscribed.
