School Supplies for 2020-21

For the 2020-21 school year, District 401 will be purchasing all school supplies for children in kindergarten through 5th grade.

The purchase is a direct connection to items that may have been left behind during supply pick-up throughout remote learning within the COVID-19 pandemic.

Items to Be Supplied by Parents

The list below includes items that parents are asked to continue to supply for their child.

All parents are asked to provide:

  • An old T-shirt or smock for art class (labeled with name and teacher)
  • Backpack
  • Water bottle (labeled)
  • Lunchbox (if your child brings their lunch)
  • For students in kindergarten and 1st grade, please put a change of clothes in a zip lock bag, labeled with their name in their backpack.
  • If your child does not wear gym shoes each day, please send an extra pair of gym shoes for days when they have physical education.

Please note that as we receive more guidance from the state, we may add items to this list.
