With the end of the year quickly approaching, we want to share with you some important information about any remaining balance you might have in your student’s PushCoin wallet. You can go to www.PushCoin.com to check your current balance. If you have never set up access to your student’s PushCoin account, you can find information on how to do that here.
For continuing students, any remaining wallet balance will simply roll over to the 2017-18 school year. Any monies rolled forward can be used any time for student expenditures such as meal purchases, fees assessed at registration and field trips.
Parents of graduating seniors can request a transfer of the balance to a sibling or request a refund. For students transferring out of District 86, parents should submit a refund request.
Graduating Seniors/Students Transferring out of District 86:
- Request a refund or transfer to a sibling by logging in to your PushCoin wallet
- For either transaction, click on the dollar amount under Wallet Balance
- Complete the information as instructed
Note that no automatic refunds will occur. ALL refunds will be made by check to the requestor. The actual refund amount may reflect any pending charges on the account. Allow four weeks for processing of your refund.

Summer Reading 2017
Welcome you to the 2017 Summer Reading Program. We are a culture of readers at Hinsdale Central, and we are excited to announce that our program has changed in a couple of ways. First, we’ve expanded our book lists to ten choices for each grade level. Second, we’ve asked teachers and staff members in all departments at Hinsdale Central to recommend books, based on themes for each level. Because of these changes, students have a wide range of books to choose from. Read the introductory letter here and see the list of books and descriptions here.
Health Services Reminder: Turn in Health Forms for the 2017-18 School Year
Incoming freshman and transfer students must have a current Certificate of Child Health Examination (within a year of the first day of school), including documentation of required immunizations, to attend school.

These records should be returned to Health Services or mailed to Hinsdale Central High School by July 1, 2017.

Applications Open for 2017-18 Student Advisory Council
The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) released the application for the 2017-18 Student Advisory Council (SAC). SAC members learn about education issues in Illinois and provide feedback to the State Board. The students also research a topic of their choosing and present their findings at a State Board meeting. Any student starting the upcoming school year as a sophomore, junior, or senior in an Illinois public high school may apply. Applications are due by 5 p.m. Friday, May 26.
“ISBE values the voices and perspectives of students,” said State Superintendent of Education Tony Smith, Ph.D. “The Student Advisory Council’s research findings and feedback help inform ISBE’s policies and advocacy. SAC offers high school students a meaningful opportunity to engage around issues they see and experience every day and to learn from and collaborate with students from different backgrounds. I encourage students interested in government, policy, and public service to consider applying for the SAC and sharing their valuable voices with ISBE.”
The 2016-17 SAC examined the lack of awareness of mental health issues in Illinois public schools. The SAC’s presentation to the State Board March 15 explored ways to strengthen connections between students, teachers, counselors, and administrators and improve students’ academic, social, emotional, and behavioral outcomes.
