2018-2019 Course Verification Will Open On Saturday

Dear Wildcat Families,

It is that time of year for students in the Class of 2019, 2020 and 2021 to review their course requests for 2018-2019 school year.

Class of 2019, 2020 and 2021: The Request Tab in HAC will be turned on at 8 am this Saturday (5/19) for your review. Use the schedule link and scroll to the bottom of the page. You will be able to view the courses your student will take next year; it is not your student’s daily schedule. The finalized schedule will be viewable in mid-August through HAC.

Class of 2022: The middle schools will distribute a paper copy for your review later this week. The high school request link is not available in your HAC. The paper copy will provide the courses your student will take next year; it is not your student’s daily schedule. The finalized schedule will be viewable in mid-August through HAC and distributed at Freshman Wildcat Welcome, August 7th.

Important Information regarding Course review:

  • ERROR – If there is an error in your course requests: (e.g. should have Physics but have Biology) contact your counselor immediately.
  • ELECTIVE COURSE CHANGE REQUEST – Requests may be submitted the week of May 21 – May 25. This is a firm deadline. Submitted change requests will be processed on a seat available basis. Instructions are located at this link:
  • Level placements in core classes were completed on January 31st and will not be part of the change request process at NV. Please contact the appropriate department chair if there is a need to discuss a level placement in a core course if there has been a change in your student's life that might impact her or his academy journey.
Please be aware that several elements affect course availability. New enrollments, schedule changes due to summer school coursework and course balancing for reasonable class sizes are some of the factors that must be taken into account. Our goal is to have each of our students in the classes they requested for next year! Any questions, contact your assigned Class House.

Integrated Pest Management Notification

Indian Prairie School District 204
3003 West 103rd Street
Naperville, IL 60564

Dear Parent, Guardian or Staff Member:                                                                       

Public Acts 91-0099 and 91-0525 mandate Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for Illinois public schools.  IPM manages pest damage with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment; including judicious use of pesticides.  In this context, “pesticide” includes insecticide, herbicide, rodenticide, and fungicide.

IPM provides parents/guardians or staff members with prior notice of herbicide application.  Please be aware that on Sunday, May 20, 2018, weather permitting, a weed control application will be applied to Athletic Fields at Neuqua Valley High School. The application will be a “Post-Emergent Weed control”. We match herbicide and application procedures to our school environment.  All are approved for school use and are an important part of buildings and grounds maintenance. Typically, this application will not present a health concern to students or staff.  However, it is the intent of IPM to allow those with special sensitivity to take appropriate precautions:  in the case of children, as determined by a parent or guardian. 

If you have further questions, please call my office at (630)428-6005.

Facility Manager
