To welcome a new year, and students back to campus, School District 49 is launching a mobile app for smartphone users. Those who download the app will find a wealth of information at their fingertips. D49 families will receive important notifications as well as having the option of logging into the app to get up to the minute information about their students, including grades, attendance and account balances.
District 49 recognizes some of our families may be affected by the recent partial government shut down. We would like to share some resources that might help during this difficult time. (D49 does not support or endorse any of these vendors, but are supplying this list for information purposes only)
