Support for Muir Families

Calling all Muir Families! 

New pantry items are in!  The pantry is available to all of the Muir community.  Due to Covid-19 restrictions, families are not able to visit the pantry in person, however we are more than happy to fill an order for your pick up at Muir!  In order to access the pantry, fill out this Google Form.  Once we receive your order, it will be packed up and ready for pickup at Muir. We will call you to coordinate a pick-up time.  

Some of our new items include cereal, pasta, sauce, peanut butter, pop tarts, fruit snacks, ramen noodles, soups, protein bars, AND assorted toiletries! Keep up to date on when we have new food arriving by liking our Facebook Page. Click here to access the page. Order today before some of these amazing items are swept off the shelves!  ​​​​​​​

Muir – Remote Student Picture Day Scheduling


IAR (Illinois Assessment of Readiness) 

Each spring, students in District 54 take federally mandated assessments (IAR) designed to help school districts understand how our students are growing academically.  This year, the English Language Arts and Math Assessment for grades 3-8 will be given at school over three days between April 5th and April 23rd.  The classroom teachers will communicate the specific days your child will be testing. Remote learners are not required to test, however, if you would like to bring your child into school for testing please reach out to their classroom teacher.  Remote learners will be provided with alternate lessons during the three testing days. Thank you in advance for your flexibility and support as we complete these assessments.

2021-2022 Registration

Registration for the 2021-22 school year will open on Monday, March 29 through the Infinite Campus Portal. Please login to review the current information and make any necessary changes. If you do not have a portal account, you should have received an email on March 13 inviting you to create one.

As a reminder, all families are required to prove that they live within District 54 boundaries every year. If we are unable to verify your residency electronically, you will receive a letter by U.S. mail, which will list the residency documents you can upload through your portal or provide to the school office to complete your registration.

You are also able to pay the consumable fee for 2021-22, as well as purchase milk and sign up for the instructional device insurance through the portal. If you believe you will qualify for the Free Lunch Program in the 2021-22 school year, and therefore will receive a fee waiver, do not pay the consumable material fee now. Applications will be available in August for the Free Lunch Program.

Should you have any questions, please our office. Thank you for your cooperation.
