Bus Service is again FREE for the 2015-16 School Year!

Bus freeDistrict 74 is again offering FREE bus service for all students! Simply check "Yes" for your student to ride the bus for the 2015-16 school year in Infosnap through the school re-registration process. It's that simple. If you are not sure that you checked "Yes" or you would like to change to "Yes," simply send an email to and the District will check that box for you.


If you have not yet completed or have not yet started the online process of school re-registration for your child(ren), please do so as soon as possible. Here are the steps:


  • Use your unique "snapcode" to log into Infosnap. (This code was originally emailed to you on March 17th - if you do not have, call the Administration Building 847-675-8234 )
  • Fill out the entire online form.
  • Say "YES" to riding the bus.
  • Click the SUBMIT button when you have completed the process.
  • Proof of Residency is required (if you did not upload your paperwork in Infosnap, it must be brought into the District Office). REGISTRATION IS NOT COMPLETE UNTIL THE DISTRICT HAS PROOF OF RESIDENCY.
  • Payment of fees is not necessary at this time. To avoid any late fees, payment should be made before the first day of school which is August 12th.

If you are planning on moving out of the District and your child is not attending District 74 for the 2015-16 school year, please notify District 74 as soon as possible.

Skyping Music with Lebanon

This week in Mrs. Carlberg's music room, 5th grade students skyped with a school in Lebanon in which Mrs. Carlberg has had a long-term professional relationship. District 74 5th grade students practiced two songs to perform and then the same music for these songs were shared with the Lebanon school students, prior to the skyping date. While skyping, the classes performed these two songs for each other. Both groups of students played very well. Then the students asked each other questions such as, "What are some of your favorite after-school activities?" and "What kind of instruments do you play?"

One of our 5th grade students went to Lebanon with his family last summer and visited the school, so they talked about their visit. It is a unique experience for students to visit with other students that are living so far away and yet have so much in common. The students really enjoyed their skyping time!

Class Skyping with Newbery Award Winning Author

Last week, one of Rutledge Hall's 4th grade classes had a skyping experience with Newbery Award winning author, Avi. The class has read many of his books, one of their favorites being Ragweed. The students asked Avi several questions such as, "Is it hard to create new characters?," "Who was your favorite author growing up?," "Do you wish you could fix or change any parts of your books?" Avi answered all of their questions and the students listened to ever word he had to say. It was very educational and informative. Avi has inspired the class to write their own books. Avi also asked the students for some advise - should he write more books and add new characters. The students answered, "Yes!"


At the end of the session, Avi gave the class this advice: reading is the best thing you can do for yourself.
