District Alumni Directory 2022

District 99 has partnered with Publishing Concepts Inc. (PCI) to update our alumni directories at North High School in Downers Grove and South High School in Downers Grove.

Starting on February 7, 2022, alumni will receive a series of postcards, emails and possibly a phone call to their information currently listed in our database. Communications will include a toll-free number to call to verify your information and share any updates with a representative from PCI. Our family of alumni has grown significantly since our last printing of the directory in 2012. Up-to-date alumni information is essential for developing career connections with our current students as well as for classes planning alumni gatherings.

If you have any questions about this directory project, and you would like to update your information, you can contact PCI directly at the toll-free number: 866-558-8144
