Please send reunion info for classes ending in 1 or 6...we are happy to add your info to our website and to our quarterly newsletters. 
Please send us info about your class reunions, Facebook page/groups and class contact info (e-mails, committee contact, etc.) to us at:   The more info the Alumni Association has about your class, the easier it is for us to put your classmates in touch with you.
Scheduling Tours for your Reunion: 
Sorry, NO TOURS at this time.  Please check back as update will be posted. 
We like to have a 30 day notice for tours.  This allows us time to work with the school to have someone open it up and for us to find alumni available to give the tour.  We also like to know the number in attendance, again to have enough help giving the tours.  Contact us at the above email address.
Insurance info for all Planning Committees:
When renting CSSD-11 locations: It is Board Policy that to rent a District Eleven facility the renter is required to have  $1,000,000 liability insurance policy with School District Eleven named as "certificate holder" and "additional insured".  The insurance is not available through the district.  The reunion class would need to obtain their own insurance for events held on D-11 property.  When an individual rents a building, they sometimes will be able to add onto their homeowners.
