8th grade graduation May 30th

8th Grade Graduation:

We are excited to announce that 8th grade graduation will take place on May 30 at Hoffman Estates High School.  More details will be provided as we get closer to the date.  Beginning third trimester, all 8th graders must complete all assignments in order to participate in various events and to walk graduation.

Board policy states, “In order for eighth (8th) grade students to participate in the Graduation Ceremony, all academic assignments must be completed by the student.”

Chromebook Reminder

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 Phone Reminder

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.
