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!

Help for Parents Coping With Back-to-School Plans

Whether students go back to school in person, remotely, or a combination of the two, one thing is for sure - this school year will look and feel extremely different than anything our children have ever experienced. Prioritizing their mental health and well-being is critical during this stressful time, and, expert say, parents can do so by caring for themselves first. Visit the CATCH website for information and resources.
