District 36 back to school
A Thank You Message from Winnetka School District 36 to the Community

As a community, District 36 met a significant milestone by welcoming over 1,500 K-8 students back to campus and 100 students learning remotely on August 27. August's return to school involved over 4,000 hours of summer work and significant involvement of our entire community. Much has changed in our world, but one thing that has not changed is our steadfast, collective commitment to our schools and students. Thank you for all of your efforts to help support our safety and dedication to learning during these unprecedented times.
Recycling Tip from the Environmental and Forestry Commission
Recycled materials are necessary for the production of essential supplies including paper towels, sanitizing wipes, toilet paper, and packaging for a wide range of products including boxes for shipping. Many businesses that would normally generate large amounts of recyclables have limited operations, so household recycling is vital to the continued supply of raw materials for U.S. manufacturing sectors.
When recycling, keep materials clean and dry as possible. Only place materials in your recycling bin that are accepted by our contracted hauler, and use drop-off recycling programs for other materials. Keep plastic bags, masks, wipes, and latex gloves out of your recycling bin.
