Graduation: May 30
- Graduation will take place at Hoffman Estates High School at 7:00 pm. Students should arrive by 6:30 pm and proceed to the cafeteria. Parents can proceed to the gym.
- Please do not bring balloons or gifts into the gym. We want to ensure all graduates are seen by their family members. If you are seen carrying gifts or balloons in, you will be asked to return them to your car.
- Please refrain from all loud noises including the use of air horns, cheers and clapping for each individual child during reading of names in the ceremony. This would only serve as a delay for other students waiting to receive their diploma. It is important for every family to have the opportunity to hear their child’s name called. Diplomas will be pulled of students whose names are cheered through the ceremony. We want to ensure all students are respected and not embarrassed during this joyous occasion.

New Village Ordinance:
Beginning April 1, 2019 a Hoffman Estates village ordinance will take effect in regards to the traffic flow for student pick up and drop off procedures. The Hoffman Estates police department is working in collaboration with the village to make sure the procedures are followed to ensure the safety of our students.
Between the hours of 7:00 am – 8:00 am and 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm, drivers will not be allowed to make a right turn into the west side parking lot. A left turn is allowed only. Please go north on to Carling Road and take a right onto Rosedale. Follow Rosedale until you reach the parking lot. Please do not drop off or pick up students on Hassell Road. This is extremely unsafe for students. We want to ensure parents, family members, and drivers are aware of the new ordinance so they are not ticketed. Thank you for your cooperation in ensuring the safety of Eisenhower students.
8th Grade Expectations:
Beginning April 9th, students will be required to stay after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays if they are missing assignments. We will follow the same process of communicating to parents through email on Fridays if your child is missing work.
Chromebooks: Please make sure your child is charging their chromebooks each evening. There have been an increase of students not being prepared in their classrooms due to low batteries.
Cell Phones: Please remind students that cell phones must be turned off and put into lockers at the beginning of the day. If parents need to contact students during the day, please feel free to contact our office.
According to Board Policy 7:390,
Student possession or use of cellular telephones, laser pointers or electronic, communication or entertainment devices is prohibited in the schools, on District property or on District-provided transportation unless the use or possession of such a device has first been expressly authorized by the building principal or the Superintendent/designee.
Parents will be asked to pick up cell phones if students are repeatedly not following expectations.
