Welcome to Deer Path Middle School!
One of our primary focuses at Deer Path is making sure that our students are welcomed and comfortable in their school! With remote learning this spring, bringing our incoming students to Deer Path Middle School has not been possible. So instead, we're sharing digital resources here to help us bring Deer Path Middle School to your students!
In this communication you will find information intended to support students and parents in the transition to Deer Path including introductions to our principals, buildings, pick-up, drop-off, and the daily life of a DPM student, and ways to get involved. Just click on the images to view!

June 2, 7-8 p.m.
With a focus on moving forward together, members of the Lake Forest and Lake Bluff communities are invited to join Lake Forest Mayor George Pandaleon and Lake Bluff Village President Kathy O’Hara with local municipal, medical, and education leaders for a live, online community update on June 2nd at 7-8 p.m. More information will be announced the week of May 25.
When completing the registration for your student, please keep in mind donating to the Spirit of 67 Foundation and joining the Association of Parents and Teachers (APT). Both organizations are strong partners with us in your student's education. The Spirit will be implementing many grants into our school next year that were written by your student's teachers and the APT. The APT works as a bridge between the parents and teaching staff and helps to implement many of the Spirit grants that enhance your children's education, like the Fine Arts Presentations and the Visiting Author talks, and for K-4 students the Visiting Scientist experiments – grants that are researched and coordinated by the APT, funded by the Spirit and enjoyed by everyone in our school.
If your 8th grade graduate has a positive lunch balance after graduation, those funds will FIRST be transferred to a current younger sibling within D67 Schools; DPM, Cherokee, Everett and Sheridan. No further action is necessary. If there are no current younger siblings at any District 67 schools, balances for 8th grade graduates will be transferred to LFHS.
