District 161 Virtual Backpack

Summit Hill District 161 is doing its part to "go green" by changing the way flyers are distributed to students. In the past, paper copies were sent home. With the launch of our Virtual Backpack, District 161 is introducing an eco-friendly online distribution system that saves resources and time required to sort and handle materials.
