Triad Moves To Online Registration for 2015-2016 School Year

Request more information or enter your E-Mail in the Online Registration System - Henning@triadunit2.org

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 ]

District Introduces Before and After School Service

Triad is pleased to offer safe, high quality, before and after school programming for K-5 children enrolled in Triad Community Unit School District #2 buildings. The "Beyond the Bell" program provides extended-day care in each of our elementary schools that successfully connects the educational school day with those additional hours that children may need to stay at school. Each building offers the ideal combination of quiet time, homework time, play time and fun. For More Details ]

The old adage, "A picture is worth a thousand words", refers to the idea that a picture can tell a story. We have hundreds of stories to share about our classrooms, students, building activities and events.  To help share our stories, we have constructed a photo slide show that will be continually updated.  Come back often and take the time to view our story and proudly share with others.  We have amazing schools, staff and students and hope these moments capture some additional stories you may not have heard about. [ Slide Show ]


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 PayForIt.net.  The service may be accessed via links through our Parent Resources webpage or directly via www.payforit.net . 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 PayForIt.net 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.

2014-15 Bus Route Information

The Triad Transportation staff strives to provide the best transportation service possible to children of families who reside outside safe walking routes to our schools.  As you prepare your children for the coming school year, please familiarize yourself with the bus route information for the 2014-15 school year.  Having children know their bus number, their stop location and when to meet their bus is important information that will help them establish familiar routine at the start of the year.  The information is now available, and can be accessed using the link below.  Please direct any questions to our transportation department at 618.667.8851 x.5308 (Heather Markovic)

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.

Once the students are in attendance, Triad schools rarely dismiss early because of inclement weather. In the event that weather conditions deteriorate quickly or equipment malfunctions happen during the school day, the district may be forced to dismiss early in the best interest of the safety of your child(ren).  If this happens, the district will activate the parent notification system to contact parents by phone, email and text messaging.  We strongly encourage parents to have a current phone number and e-mail address (that is easily accessible) in our school database system.  We also recommend having a plan in place for your child if your child were to arrive home early. On extremely poor weather days, it has been past practice to begin the longer bus routes earlier than normal, so that students will arrive home as close to their regular time as possible.  In the event that weather conditions are deteriorating rapidly, parents may pick up their child(ren) early from school. 

Here are the numerous ways parents can expect information regarding the closing of school or an early dismissal:


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.. ]


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.
