Wildcat News

Extra, extra, read all about it! Every day our students accomplish great things, and we want to help keep you involved. We encourage you to visit our News page often to stay informed of all the latest events and stories.

Check Those Headphones!

Now is a good time to check in with your student to see if he/she still has working headphones at school. This is especially important for third through fifth grade students who will need headphones for the upcoming state assessments in April. More information to come.

Valentine’s Day Parties

Valentine’s Day parties are Tuesday, February 14 from 1:45 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. If you have signed up to volunteer at a party, please stop in to make sure we print your badge for the party. Volunteers may enter the building on Valentine’s Day beginning at 1:30 p.m. Thank you for helping make our parties great!

Candy Grams

Candy grams are on sale from Monday, February 6 through Monday, February 13. They are $1.00 each and are available by pre-order only. We will deliver them on Valentine’s Day.

209U Communication

Wilmington CUSD uses the Blackboard Connect System to inform parents of emergencies and non-emergencies. The Blackboard Connect System calls parents/guardians automatically. If you receive an emergency call, you should see a 411 prefix on the caller I.D. If the message is non-emergency it will say, "Wilmington Schools" on the caller I.D. Please be aware: If you are using a privacy blocker on your phone, Blackboard Connect will not register. Do not hang up immediately, the message is on a loop and will begin again. Sometimes power outages, flooding, or weather develop suddenly. We announce emergency information regarding District 209U schools over the following radio stations as soon as a decision is made:

  • Joliet – WJOL – AM 1340
  • Joliet – WBUS – FM 100.7
  • Kankakee – WKAN – AM 1320
  • Kankakee – WONU – FM 89.7
  • Kankakee – WVLI – FM 95.1
  • Wilmington – WKAT – FM 105.5
  • Chicago – WGN – AM 720, FM 98 
  • Chicago – WLS – AM 890 
  • Morris – WJDK/WCSJ – FM 103.1 & FM 95.7
