Class Lists

Class lists will be available just outside the main office by entering Muir through the main entrance on Thursday the 17th from 8:30-11:30.  They will be available again during our Back to School Night.

Back to School Night

On Thursday, August 17th from 4:30-6:30 we will have an open house at Muir where students can drop off their school supplies, meet their teacher and enjoy a light snack from our PTA. We will also be selling Muir spirit wear and you will have the opportunity to join our Muir PTA. We hope to see all of you there!

Busses/Parking Lot

We continue to work with the Hoffman Estates Police Department to determine the safest possible plan for arrival/dismissal.  In order to best ensure the safety of our students, the parking lot will be closed to all vehicles other than student busses from 8:20-8:40 a.m. each morning and from 2:55-3:10 p.m. each afternoon.  On Wednesdays, our parking lot will be closed from 2:25-2:40 p.m.  In order to allow our students the safest path to and from school, it is important to minimize vehicle movement at these times.  Parents/guardians are able to pick-up/drop-off their students by walking to our entry and exit doors each day. Please note that only siblings of students in K/1 should be on school grounds at dismissal. If a sibling is picking up a student in grades 2-6, please have them wait at the fence near the parking lot entrance.  We appreciate your support as we make student safety our top priority.  Please note that each grade is assigned to the door listed below:

  • K/1- Door 11
  • 2/3-Door 10
  • 4-Door 1
  • 5-Door 2
  • 6/ASD-Door 3
