Medinah School District 11
Welcome to
Medinah School District 11


Dear Parents/Guardians:

Now that winter is approaching, I would like to remind you of important information regarding potential school closings. Though District #11 makes every effort to keep our schools open and operational, circumstances beyond our control sometimes dictate school closings. 

Here are some reminders for you to consider:
1. If school should be closed tomorrow for inclement weather or an 
    emergency, who would care for and supervise my child(ren)?

2. If school was to close early today (due to broken water pipes, 
    power failure, heating problems, accumulating snowfall, etc.), 
    who would be able to take care of my child(ren) for the remainder 
    of the day?

3. Is my contact information up-to-date? This would include email and 
    phone numbers. If you are not sure, check your PowerSchool 
    account or check with the school office. This is the information 
    we will use to contact you, so please make sure it is current.

In addition, please utilize this handy reference for emergency school closings and information.

        Emergency School Closing Sources of Information

• Email: All District #11 parents/guardians who have provided their child’s 
  school with an email address will be sent an email when school is closed.

• Phone: Each student’s primary phone number will be called using our 
  rapid phone notification system.

• District #11 website: 

• Facebook: 

• Twitter: 

Every effort will be made to have all of these information sources updated by 6:00 a.m. in the event of a snow emergency day.

Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) Initiative Launches January 25th®

In an effort to further involve our community in the positive direction of our school, this year we are proud to launch a new initiative targeted specifically at the men in our students’ lives who have such a strong influence in their development. We will launch our Watch D.O.G.S.® program on Thursday, January 25th at 6:30 at Medinah Middle Schoool. We will be serving pizza and will have a couple of guest speakers join us to kick things off. Fathers, grandfathers, uncles, older brothers and any other father-figures who are important in our students' lives are invited to attend. Watch D.O.G.S.® (Dads Of Great Students) is an innovative father involvement, educational initiative of the National Center For Fathering. There are 2 primary goals of the Watch D.O.G.S.® 1) To provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important. 2) To provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security. Watch D.O.G.S.® began in 1998 in a single school in Springdale, Arkansas and has since grown into a nationally recognized program that has brought hundreds of thousands of fathers and father figures into the school classrooms and hallways across the country, creating millions of hours of “in school” volunteer time and having a tremendously positive impact on the educational process. Who are WatchDOGS (Dads Of Great Students)? WatchDOGS are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at an official WATCH D.O.G.S.® school. During the day, Watch D.O.G.S.® may read and work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, watch the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well.
