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.
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.
