Dear Medinah Community Members, 


As we embark on the next leg of our academic journey, it is with great anticipation that we look forward to the upcoming four months of school, culminating in the celebration of grade 8 promotion on Tuesday, May 28.  

In the spirit of ensuring safety, the district has implemented a 2-hour late start program for mornings affected by inclement conditions or emergencies. This initiative is a proactive measure to enhance our response capabilities and prioritize the safety of all members of the Medinah community. 

At the April Board of Education meeting the Board will review a draft of the updated 2024-2030 Strategic Plan.  

We extend our sincere appreciation to each one of you for helping reinforce the District's Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct also includes bus stops, bus travel to and from school, and on any school property, including sports and extracurriculars. The District’s Code of Conduct also includes adults who are on or participating in any school-related event. Please help us model MEDINAH KIND! Your commitment to creating a positive and respectful environment contributes significantly to the overall success of our educational community. 

Medinah continues to promote the Glenbard District 87 Parent Series. This series serves as an invaluable resource, offering insights, information, and tools to support parents and caregivers in navigating the challenges and joys of raising and educating our young minds. If you have not participated in a session, consider checking it out.  We appreciate Glenbard sharing their professional resources with District 11. 

We are excited to participate in the Parent Teacher Organization’s Bingo Night on Friday, April 12, at Medinah Middle School. We hope to see you there! 

Thank you once again for your unwavering support. Together, we can make the remainder of the school year a memorable and successful experience for all. 

Wishing you a fantastic journey through the coming months! 

Best regards, 

Susan Redell
