Greetings Margaret Mead Community,

Congratulations to our just-graduated Margaret Mead Junior High School Class of 2021!  On behalf of the Mead staff, we are proud of their accomplishments during this unusual time in American education!  They are a shining example of Mead’s commitment to Fostering Academic Achievement and Creating a Positive Culture.  Please see below for important information about end-of-the-year events for our seventh grade students:    

 

REGISTRATION FOR THE 21-22 SCHOOL YEAR

Registration for the 2021-22 school year is now open through the Infinite Campus Portal. Please login to review the current information and make any necessary changes. If you do not have a portal account, you should have received an email on March 13 inviting you to create one.  As a reminder, all families are required to prove that they live within District 54 boundaries every year.  If we are unable to verify your residency electronically, you will receive a letter by U.S. mail, which will list the residency documents you can upload through your portal or provide to the school office to complete your registration.  You are also able to pay the consumable fee for 2021-22, as well as purchase milk and sign up for the instructional device insurance through the portal.  If you believe you will qualify for the Free Lunch Program in the 2021-22 school year, and therefore will receive a fee waiver, do not pay the consumable material fee now. Applications will be available in August for the Free Lunch Program.  Should you have any questions, please contact our front office at 847-357-6000.
