Guidelines to Follow

The Lemont-Bromberek CSD113A often receives requests from other organizations to distribute informational materials to students. Suitability and approval are at the discretion of the district.

This school year, the district has launched a new “green” approach to distributing information to students from non-profit organizations, intergovernmental agencies, and business partners, for which it grants approval. Rather than sending home approved flyers for entities outside the school district, we will now be posting such information on a Virtual Backpack webpage for all to see. It is estimated that this will collectively save staff many hours of sorting and handling these flyers, as well as reduce the amount of paper being distributed.



  • Those wishing to submit information to be posted on this Virtual Backpack site must do so by filling out a Flyer Request Form and attaching a PDF of the requested posting. This should be done at least 5 days in advance of the desired posting date.
  •  Approved postings will be updated on a weekly basis.
  • Only non-profit organizations, governments, and entities that have an inter-governmental agreement with the district will be allowed to have materials posted on the Virtual Backpack site. Distribution of materials for commercial businesses or organizations not involved as school/district Business Partners will not be permitted.
  • All activities or information must be appropriate for students. Activities should relate to a school function, event or purpose, or relate to an agency that offers widely appealing recreational program options for students.
  • One electronic copy of the proposed flyer must accompany the request for distribution.
  • Materials are posted for informational purpose only. Posting does not imply district endorsement of them.
