The Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 Summer Music Program offers an exciting opportunity for all current 4th - 8th grade band and orchestra students and all current 6th - 8th grade choir students to continue practicing in an ensemble during the summer. Consistent, regular practice during the summer helps students to retain and reinforce concepts and skills that they have learned during the school year and helps them continue to learn and grow as young musicians.

  • Summer Band and Orchestra for current elementary students will run June 4 through June 29 at Sandburg Middle School. Rehearsals will be held Monday through Friday mornings. Each rehearsal is one hour. The final performances will be on Friday morning, June 29 at Sandburg Middle School.
  • Summer Band, Orchestra, and Choir for current middle school students will run June 4 – July 6 at York High School from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. Band and Orchestra rehearsals will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Choir rehearsals will be held on Monday and Wednesday evenings. There will be no rehearsals on July 3rd and 4th. The final performance will be on Friday, July 6 at York High School.
  • The registration fee for all levels is $92.00. The fee includes a Summer Music Program T shirt.
  • Middle School Summer Band and Orchestra students may also participate in Jazz Band at no additional cost.
  • Middle school students who register for summer band or orchestra may also enroll in choir at no additional cost.

The Dist. 205 Summer Music Program welcomes students who will be on vacation for some rehearsals and/or participate in other summer activities. Students who can only attend part of the summer program are still strongly encouraged to register and attend as often as they can! Students who practice during the summer are much more likely to experience continued success in band, orchestra, and choir. We strongly encourage your child to participate as much as they are able!

Please see the attached summer music program description for more detailed course information, rehearsal times, and registration options. If you have questions, please contact Brian Berg (bberg@elmhurst205.org) or your child's band or orchestra director.

Registration for the Dist. 205 Summer Music Program will open on Monday, March 19, 2018. You may register for the summer music program by using the Webstore at this link. The deadline for registration is Friday, May 4, 2018.

Juniors and Seniors -

York Prom will take place on Saturday, April 28, 2018, at the Crystal Gardens of Navy Pier in Chicago. Below is important information for students and parents.


This all-inclusive evening includes transportation to and from the Prom, a strolling dinner and dessert reception, soft drinks, and dancing at the Crystal Gardens. The cost of the Prom is $110. The Post Prom cruise aboard the Odyssey has been arranged by the PTSA. The optional cruise continues to be a very popular option and, once again, promises to complete a memorable night. Tickets for Post Prom are $35 per person for a total of $145.


Check-in will begin at 6 p.m. at the school. York High School does not permit the use of limousines to drop students off at school and students will be unable to attend if they use one. Bus service on a luxury coach will be provided and required to and from Navy Pier. The luxury coaches will leave York High School at 6:30 p.m. Prom will begin at 7:45 p.m. and end at 11:45 p.m. The Post Prom cruise boards at 12 a.m. and ends at 2:30 a.m. The Post Prom buses will return to York around 3:15 a.m. Buses for students not attending Post Prom will return around 12:30 a.m.


To purchase a Prom ticket, students must follow this procedure:

1. Fill out the Prom Ticket Request form (using their Elmhurst205 account) at bit.ly/yorkprom18 and obtain a confirmation number. Every student who plans to attend Prom must complete his/her own information form. (If you are bringing a non-York guest, you must complete the guest information).

2. Have the attached letter filled out and signed, and then present it at the time the ticket is purchased.


Seniors may purchase Tickets for the Prom & Post Prom from April 3rd through April 19th. At this time, seniors have the option to buy a ticket for one guest (who does not need to be a senior), but both tickets must be purchased at the same time. Juniors may purchase tickets from April 6th through April 19th. Payment is by cash,checks (payable to Beck’s Bookstore) or credit card.  No tickets will be sold after Thursday, April 19th. Due to the capacity aboard the Odyssey Cruise ship, only the first 712 students will be able to attend. We have a capacity of 920 students at Prom.

Bus assignments are made at the time of ticket purchase. If you are wanting to be on a bus with your group, you must plan to purchase tickets at the same time. There will be no bus assignment switches made and students are not allowed to change bus assignments on their own.


If a junior or senior student is purchasing a ticket for a guest from another school, the guest and parent/guardian must complete and sign a separate Guest Request Form available in the Dean’s Office. York students must accompany their non-York guests at all times throughout the evening, including Post Prom.


The PTSA has generously agreed to help pay for the luxury buses to help keep the combined cost of Prom and Post Prom at $145 per person. If you need assistance with the cost of Prom, please have your senior student contact his/her counselor or social worker.


All school rules and conduct regarding alcohol, tobacco, vape pens, etc. will be enforced at this function and apply to the student and their guest (see Student Handbook for rules). Noncompliance with these rules will result in removal from the dance, and parents will be contacted to pick up their student. Any other disciplinary action will be applied and will be subject to additional consequences as deemed appropriate by the administration.  The dress code is formal. Any student whose attire is deemed inappropriate by the administration will not be given a refund. Students are not permitted to bring large purses or bags on the bus, and all carry-on items will be subject to inspection.


Due to our binding contracts with Crystal Gardens, Coach USA, and the Odyssey cruise company, we will be unable to provide refunds for students who choose not to attend Prom or Post-Prom after April 19, 2018. Students may not sell their tickets to another student. Tickets must be purchased from the bookstore ONLY.

Members of the District 205 Community Advisory Team (CAT) have been chosen and notified. With more than 125 applicants for a 30-member committee, the selection process was extremely difficult. We are grateful that so many residents are willing to help D205 in this important work!

A rubric was used to make sure that every school was represented, along with as many stakeholder groups as possible. The number of members was expanded from 25 to 33. We will be seeking to engage the remaining 93 applicants in other meaningful ways as the journey continues.

CAT members will be asked to:

  • Ensure that messages and materials related to the MFP are clear and easy-to-understand
  • Help anticipate and provide representative community questions and concerns
  • Offer suggestions to make sure the District is using every opportunity to reach stakeholders

While the CAT will assist the D205 administration with crafting clear communications for the community, it will not make decisions regarding the draft plan, as all community feedback will carry equal value and weight. The District plans to offer many opportunities for parents, staff and the community to weigh in on the Master Facility Plan.

The first CAT planning meeting will be on Monday, March 19. Please note that this is not a public meeting.

(2) contributing data to statewide health and social indicators, which will provide evidence of the needs of high school students throughout the state.


The survey is completely anonymous, and an individual student's participation is voluntary. Administration of the survey will not interrupt instructional time.

A notification letter was emailed to parents of 10th grade students on March 9, 2018. Additional information about the survey can be found on the attached flyer and at http://iys.cprd.illinois.edu

What is a PLC? In District 205, PLCs play an important role in promoting student growth and building the capacity of our teachers. But what is a PLC and what is its function?

PLC stands for Professional Learning Community. PLCs are designed to ensure high levels of teacher collaboration focused on student learning. They can take many forms. Examples include ensuring that teachers of the same grade level or subject area, as well as instructional coaches, special education teachers and support staff, have time to analyze assessment data, share best practices for success, and plan for future learning.

PLC groups meeting during student late arrival days, institute days and also during the school day at various times throughout the week.

Watch the video below, and let our teachers show you how PLCs are utilized in D205 schools. 




On Tuesday, April 10th, York Community High School will be administering the SAT with writing to all juniors published by the CollegeBoard. The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) requires that this test is administered to all currently enrolled juniors and is required to graduate in the State of Illinois. Please note: if a junior student does not take this state administered SAT in April, that student will not be able to be designated as a senior per Illinois state regulations and will not be eligible for any privileges that go along with being designated a senior, including off campus or early graduation.  

This test has been paid for by the state,​ and nothing additional needs to be completed in order to register your junior students. It is important that students are in their testing rooms, ready to test at 7:40 AM. Once testing begins, students will not be able to enter the testing area, and they will be required to take the exam on the make-up testing day, April 24th.

Before the April 10th test, York’s Counseling Department will be holding a pre-administration session with all junior students on Tuesday, April 3rd during 2nd period. During this session, students will bubble in portions of their answer booklets with their student information, and they will be given the opportunity to indicate 4 colleges to which they can send their SAT scores at no charge. We strongly encourage families to discuss this prior to April 3rd, so students are able to take advantage of this free service. SAT charges $12 per score to send to each college. We also encourage families to keep a list of these colleges so that the student can reference them in the fall of the senior year. Click here for considerations when deciding to report a score.

April 10th is a half day for freshman, sophomore, and junior students, but it is NOT a late arrival day​: we will begin testing at 7:40 AM, and students at all three grade levels, as well as students at the District 205 Transition Center will be dismissed at the conclusion of their exam at approximately 12:25 PM.​ While the junior students are testing on April 10th, our freshman and sophomore students will be participating in a career/college/life readiness day. Since Seniors have a non attendance day, w​e encourage seniors to spend this day visiting a college, university, or other post secondary program.

All bus routes will run at normal times in the morning, and will depart from York at 12:35 PM following the exams. A late bus will leave York at 6:15 after athletic practices; however, please note that there will NOT be a 4:30 bus on the 10th. Breakfast will be available for purchase before school, but there will be no lunch service on this testing day. Students testing with extended time will complete their exams on the following day.

Junior students will receive an email after spring break with their individual testing room assignment for the day and instructions regarding what to bring to the test (i.e. number 2 pencils, ID, calculator, snack etc.). Please help your student keep an eye out for this email and ask your student if they know their testing room assignment.

Thank you in advance for helping our students navigate spring testing, and we are looking forward to a strong finish as we enter the final stretch of the school year.




El próximo martes, 10 de abril, la Preparatoria York estará administrando el examen Estatal de Conocimientos Generales SAT por sus siglas en inglés o Scholastic Aptitute Test a todos aquellos estudiantes actualmente en el grado 11º. El examen es publicado por CollegeBoard (Consejo de Universidades y Colegios). El Consejo de Educación del Estado de Illinois ISBE por sus siglas en inglés requiere que este examen sea administrado a todos los estudiantes de 11º Grado o Juniors que se vayan a graduar en el Estado de Illinois. Por favor tome nota: Si algún estudiante del nivel Junior no toma este examen SAT en abril, el mismo estudiante no podrá ser designado como Senior o de Grado 12º en el año escolar siguiente, ésto es de acuerdo a las regulaciones estatales y tampoco será elegible para los privilegios que son designados para los estudiantes de nivel 12º, incluyendo libertad de salir y entrar durante el día escolar o graduación temprana.

Este examen es pagado por el Estado y no hay ninguna necesidad adicional para completarlo en orden de que los estudiantes de nivel Junior puedan registrarse. Es importante que los estudiantes vayan a los salones de los exámenes y estén listos para el mismo en punto de las 7:40 AM. Una vez que el examen haya empezado, los estudiantes no podrán interrumpir la sesión si llegaron tarde. Aquellos que no lleguen a tiempo tendrán una segunda oportunidad el 24 de abril.

Antes del día del examen del 10 de abril, el Departamento de Consejería de la Preparatoria York estará haciendo una sesión de pre administración del examen con todos los estudiantes programada para el 3 de abril durante el 2ndo. período. Durante esta sesión, los estudiantes tendrán la oportunidad de practicar como llenar el formato de respuestas que se califica de manera computarizada. También tendrán la oportunidad de escoger hasta 4 Colegios o Universidades a las que quieran que se mande los resultados de sus exámenes SAT sin costo alguno. Definitivamente, les aconsejamos que discutan con sus familias antes del día 3 de abril para que tomen ventaja de este servicio gratuito. Normalmente, los cargos de los exámenes SAT son alrededor de $12.00 por resultado para mandar a cada colegio y universidad. También le recomendamos a las familias de tener una lista de los colegios o universidades a las que se les mando los resultados, sólo para tener una referencia en el otoño próximo cuando ya estén en el ultimo año de la Preparatoria o Senior. Oprima la siguiente conexión para tomar en cuenta ciertas consideraciones cuando decida a donde quiere mandar el resultado de esto exámenes “Click here” .

El 10 de abril es medio día para los estudiantes de Freshman 9º, Sophomore 10º and Junior 11º, y NO será un día de entrada retrasada. Vamos a empezar a hacer los exámenes estatales a las 7:40 am. Todos los estudiantes en los 3 grados mencionados junto con los estudiantes del Centro de Transición podrán salir al final de su examen, aproximádamente a las 12:25 PM. Mientras que los estudiantes Junior 11º estarán siendo evaluados el 10 de abril, los estudiantes Freshman y Sophomore estarán participando en el Evento Día de Carreras/Colegios y Preparación para la Vida o Career/College/Life Readiness Day en inglés. Puesto que los estudiantes del nivel Senior 12º no tienen que venir ese día, les aconsejamos que lo usen para visitar algún colegio, universidad u otro programa de estudios de educación superior.

Todos los autobuses correrán sus rutas normales en el horario matutino y partirán a las 12:35 en el horario vespertino. Tendremos aún el autobús de las 6:15 PM para aquellos estudiantes que están involucrados en un deporte de la escuela. Sin embargo, por favor tome nota que no habrá un autobús a las 4:30 PM el día 10. Los estudiantes que requieran una extensión de tiempo en sus exámenes completaran su examen el siguiente día.

Todos aquello estudiantes que sean Junior, 11º recibirán un correo electrónico en las vacaciones de la primavera con los detalles del salón a donde deberán presentarse para su examen y con instrucciones de lo que deberán traer a su examen (i.e. Lápiz del #2, identificación personal, calculadora, refrigerio etc.) Por favor ayude a su estudiante a estar pendiente de este correo electrónico y verifique después si saben a qué salón deben de presentarse para su examen.

Muchas gracias de antemano por ayudar a nuestros estudiantes a navegar el tiempo de evaluaciones en esta primavera y esperamos que todos tengan buenos resultados mientras que entramos en la recta final del año escolar.​​​​​​​

Please know that Elmhurst District 205 will only contact parents and staff when schools are closed or there is a late start called. In general (excluding other emergency situations), if there is NO announcement by 5:45 AM via the following methods, schools are open: phone, email and SMS text message (if you’ve signed up for this feature) in both English and Spanish; the District 205 website (when in doubt, check it out); the District 205 Facebook page - www.facebook.com/ElmhurstD205; the D205 Twitter account - www.twitter.com/ElmhurstD205. If your phone number has recently changed, please contact your child(ren)’s school so that they can update that information in PowerSchool.

Additionally, you may visit the Emergency Closing Center website - www.emergencyclosings.com (District 205 schools are listed alphabetically as DIST #205 (ELMHURST PUBLIC SCHOOLS).

We suggest downloading the Know Before You Go flyer and keeping it handy in paper form, especially during the winter months. If power is out, you may not be able to access the Emergency Closings page of the District 205 website.

In general, District 205 will not close school on a forecast, i.e., the inclement weather must be real and present. In cases where the area is hit hard by snow, it might be possible to make a call in advance (usually in the evening of the day before). Most of the time, that decision must be made early in the morning, based on conditions that have presented themselves overnight.

Temperature is only one factor. Wind chill is also taken into account. Generally, when “real feel” temperatures are -30 degrees or colder, school will be cancelled for the sake of students who ride the bus or walk to school, as frost bite can occur quickly under such extreme conditions.

When District 205 determines that weather conditions or an emergency situation warrant an Emergency Late Start Schedule, families will be notified in the same manner they would be notified in the event of a school closing. Each family will receive a phone, email or text notice (if you've opted in) from our rapid notification system. More information about the Emergency Late Start Schedule is available online.

On Emergency Late Start days, parents and staff are encouraged to monitor the District’s website for updates on the status of after-school activities. Information about York athletics would be posted on the York School webpage in the afternoon.

If an Emergency Late Start schedule is activated:

  • Classes will begin using the standard Student Late Arrival schedule
  • Buses will operate using the standard Student Late Arrival pick-up and drop-off times.
  • Parent should use the standard Student Late Arrival schedule for drop-off - 20 minutes prior to the start times below.

Emergency Late Start schedules are as follows (same as standard Student Late Arrival schedule):
