Communication guidelines
District 88 social media accounts are not a public forum, but rather a moderated online discussion site. Please do not use social media in place of standard communication practices such as contacting a school educator to share personal issues and concerns. If you have concerns or questions about a specific situation, we ask that you please call your school and voice your opinion.

To ensure you receive the most accurate content, we ask that you follow information provided directly by District 88 through our website, social media, electronic newsletter and automated calls/e-mails.
