Virtual Backpack

Welcome to the "Virtual Backpack!"
District 28 posts local non-profit and community partner flyers here in the District's "Virtual Backpack." This approach allows us to provide information about community programs in a way that is environmentally friendly and cost-effective.
Please note that District 28 is making this information available as a courtesy and to provide information about local events and programs in our community. Materials posted on this page are the responsibility of the organizations represented. 

Principals offer links to new events in their weekly e-news. You can always check back as a handy reference!
