Dear Frost Families,

On behalf of the Frost Staff, I hope everyone has safe and relaxing Spring Break! We are definitely looking forward to reconnecting with our students when we return on Monday, April 1. 


Overall, we have been thrilled by the amount of student engagement throughout the year thus far. Frost students have showcased patience, flexibility, understanding, and dedication to their learning and truly displayed what it means to remain Frost Strong. 

8th Grade Graduation
As we approach spring, we wanted to provide an update on the 8th graduation ceremony. We are excited to announce that this year’s event will be held from 10:30 – 11:30 am on Sunday, June 2, 2024 at Wintrust Field, also known as the Schaumburg Boomers Stadium.

In order to accommodate all families, we will be limiting each family to six tickets. Students will sit on the field with their classmates, while families will sit in the stands. In the event of rain, we will hold our graduation ceremony on Monday, June 3, at 8:00 pm at Conant High School. Either way, the last day of school for eighth-grade students will be Friday, May 31. District 211 summer school classes start on June 3 and we want to ensure our eighth-graders can participate in those classes. 

A livestream of the event will be posted to the District 54 YouTube Channel for individuals who are unable to be there that day. All students’ names will be read during the ceremony, whether or not they attend.

Solar Eclipse
On Monday, April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross North and Central America creating a path of totality.  During a total solar eclipse, the Moon completely blocks the Sun while it passes between the Sun and Earth.  The sky will darken as if it were dawn or dusk.  For more information, please visit

The Schaumburg area will not experience a total eclipse but rather a partial eclipse around 1:50-2:10 p.m. D54 schools are planning a viewing opportunity to allow students to experience this unique event.  
Safety is always a top priority.  We will take all precautionary measures to make this experience safe and enjoyable.  It is not safe to look directly at the sun without specialized eye protection for solar viewing (Eclipse safety).  Solar eclipse glasses will be provided for all students and staff participating in the viewing on April 8, 2024. Additionally, if you would prefer to not have your child participate in this event, please let us know by Monday, April 1, 2024. Students who do not participate in the solar eclipse event will participate in an alternate activity inside the school during the eclipse.
Frost PTA Information
Please visit the Frost PTA website for additional information to signup for Hot Lunch and other PTA offerings!

The Frost PTA will also be selling frozen treats during lunch periods for $1 on April 2, and April 9!
