Niles West Orchestra Participated in the Collective Composition Project!

Niles West Orchestra students completed an amazing project back in September with Collective Conservatory. During this project, students from the Niles West Orchestra program came together in a non-hierarchical setting to create their own original and impactful piece of music. Through improv and innovative group activities, they strengthened their community and individual voices as they developed their ideas to create a collectively conceived piece of music.

See the recap video here!

Thank you to Dan Trahey and Pete Tashjian from the Collective Conservatory for facilitating the music-making!

Message to Parents and Students – eLearning Day 01/16/24

Dear District 219 Students, Parents & Caregivers and Staff,

Due to the inclement weather in our region, D219 will shift to an e-Learning day on Tuesday, January 16, 2024.  Please review the information about the e-Learning instructional day.

Asynchronous Learning 

  • 10AM: Students can access their e-Learning day classwork in Canvas for all of their classes. Each teacher will decide when the classwork is due. Generally, students get the e-Learning Day and one additional day to complete work​​​. This will allow for students and families dealing with an emergency to have a full day to complete assignments.

  • By 3PM: Students must submit their attendance in Canvas by 3PM on the e-Learning day.

  • Teachers and paraprofessionals will be available throughout the day to meet virtually with students. Case managers and teachers (and/or paraprofessionals) will also be available to ensure specific needs with students and families are met. The HelpDesk will be available for remote assistance with technology.


Students will sign in to Canvas to submit attendance for the e-Learning day. They will access a link via Canvas to submit their attendance in Infinite Campus.  Detailed instructions are available here.

Students who are unable to sign in to Canvas (e.g. unable to access the Internet) can submit an excused absence similar to existing school policies.

Technology Support
For technology support, please contact the help desk.
