Based on the recommendation of the Superintendent of Schools, the Board of Education annually approves a calendar that informs the public of anticipated school holidays, closings, dismissal times and quarter grading periods.

Katy Elbe was selected as a 2016 SHAPE America JRFH/HFH Grant winner. She will receive a professional development stipend to attend the 2016 SHAPE America National Convention in Minneapolis, MN this spring. Katy will also receive gift certificates to purchase heart rate monitors, which will enhance the school’s physical education program. We are proud of her hard work and commitment to our students.

District Procedures for Inclement Weather Conditions

From time to time, inclement weather conditions or equipment  malfunctions can interfere with the school schedule.  It is not unusual for Triad schools to close due to inclement weather based on the fact that the majority of our students are transported on buses.  Even smaller amounts of snow when combined with high winds pose real problems in terms of drifting in the rural areas of Marine, St. Jacob, and Troy.

PARCC Assessment

It's time for third through eighth-graders and some high school students to take the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessment. Our District assessment window will begin on March 16 and continue through April 29, with each building and grade level assigned a specific schedule for Math and English-Language Arts sessions.  Recently, State Superintendent, Tony Smith, released a letter to parents announcing the begining of the Illinois assessment period and stated... "This is the second year Illinois has participated in the PARCC assessment. The 2016 exam has a simpler format to improve the testing process while still providing reliable information about student achievement. This year's results will allow you to see how your child is growing in his or her knowledge and understanding of the state's learning standards"

School Lunch Program

District students are enjoying using the Triad District’s new computerized point of sale cafeteria system at the start of this school year.  The new system has established every student with an account in the cafeteria that can be accessed by using a barcode based on their triad student ID.   At meal time, the students make their lunch selection and use an ID badge, as opposed to our traditional punch card, to track meal purchases and payments.  Currently, we are still taking food service payments via cash or check.  Students will continue to hand their deposit to their classroom teacher in the mornings. We appreciate receiving these transactions in envelopes with your child’s name clearly printed on the outside.  While the system will continue to accept cash and personal checks, we now offer parents the convenience of online check or credit card payments toward cafeteria purchases.  Daily food service menus are available online through Sodexo.

Standards Based Report Card

The Triad School District is now using a Standards-Based Report Card (SBRC) at the elementary level. This is an exciting step for our schools as we work towards ensuring that all students are successful at meeting grade-level standards.  [Read More.. ]

 We had 20 pumpkins survive but it wasn't quite enough to beat Silver Creek this year! Great try Henning staff and students! Thanks to all our parents who came and enjoyed the event.


Online Cafeteria Accounts 

The Triad District is now able to offer parents the ability to manage their child's meal account balances through an online management service called  The service may be accessed via links through our Parent Resources webpage or directly via . This service benefits students, parents and the school cafeteria.  Management of your child's account through this online service will ensure that they never have to worry about carrying cash for lunch purchases and having the money with them at the start of lunch service.  Using the service, parents can log in at any time to make a deposit to their child's account, view their child's account balance, set up recurring deposits to their child's account, set up e-mail notifications when their child's account falls below a certain dollar amount, or request a report showing what the child has purchased on their account.

Triad Moves To Online Registration for 2015-2016 School Year

Request more information or enter your E-Mail in the Online Registration System -

Registration is a very important event for students, parents and staff at Triad Schools. Each year the District uses registration enrollments as a key source of information to make decisions about staffing, programs, and providing families with up-to-date information and schedules prior to the start of the new school year. This year, Triad will begin the process of transitioning from a three day Family Registration event in the summer to an online process.

In June, parents/guardians will start to receive electronic communications (email, text messages and automated voice calls) from the district to begin the process to register returning students and complete start-of-year paperwork for the 2015-16 school year using a new secure online form system.  Many of the familiar Family Registration processes and forms have been incorporated in this new online system [Read More ]
