District 200 residents who are 60 years of age or older may apply for an activity card which entitles them to free admission to all school plays, concerts and musicals as well as all regular season home athletic events.
First Class Passes are available at each of the district’s twelve schools and at the District 200 Administrative Services Center at 227 W. Judd Street. There is no charge for the card. Applicants need only meet the age and residency requirements.
The First Class Pass program was started by the Board of Education in 1992 to show appreciation to District 200’s senior residents for their long-term support of students and the schools. Almost 800 passes have been issued since the program began. Cards are good for life, and there is no need to renew each year.
Each cardholder is given a brochure explaining the First Class Pass and how it should be used. Each semester, cardholders are mailed a detailed calendar of upcoming events in the schools.
Eligible residents may stop by any location to apply for their card. Anyone who is unable to apply in person may telephone Debra Walsdorf at the district office at (815) 337-5147 to request an application by mail.
Free admission to all Woodstock High School Blue Streak and Woodstock North Thunder regular season home games is included under the First Class Pass. Post-season and other tournaments are not covered, however, because of Illinois High School Association regulations.
For more information about the First Class Pass, contact the D-200 Community Services Department at (815) 337-5147.
