  • Hinsdale Central Health Protocols

    We have had many questions about health protocols, in particular to COVID-19 symptoms. Therefore we have installed a new High Throughput Thermal Screening system at our Main Entrance, Door #1, and the Pool Doors, Door #5. All students will be required to enter at these locations and get a temperature reading as they enter the building. The system can scan 36 people at one time.
    Students with temperatures over 100 degrees will receive a second reading. If their temperature is still over 100 degrees, the student will be sent to the COVID-19 Room in 124B where health protocols will start.

  • Safety Drills at Hinsdale Central

    Hinsdale Central has received guidance from ISBE that all school safety drills must still be conducted this year as required by law. There will be some flexibility for local
    decisions on how they will be conducted; however, current law does not allow drills to be waived. We will be working with the Hinsdale Fire/Police Department to help guide us on how we can comply while meeting social distancing guidelines and the legal requirements in school code.

  • Waiver of Fees Information

    The Board of Education of Hinsdale High School District 86 has adopted a policy to provide for a waiver of fees when written evidence is submitted showing that at least one of the following prerequisites is met:
    1. The state of Illinois informs the school that a student’s family is eligible for the National School Lunch Program.
    2. The student's family is currently eligible under the guidelines of family-size income levels prescribed annually by the Secretary of Agriculture.
    3. The student's family shows verification of need other than that which is noted above. A copy of the formal Policy 4.140 is on file in the administrative offices. (Examples can include: two most recent pay stubs (wages, salary, commissions), earnings from Public Assistance/Welfare, Unemployment, Child Support, Alimony, Pensions, Annuities, Social Security, Worker's Compensation, SSI, recent Income Tax Statements, and/or any other type of earned income.)
    After you have finalized residency and registration requirements, you may apply for the Hinsdale Township High School Educational Fee Waiver program. Upon qualification, families will order their books using an Educational Fee Waiver Voucher through MBS online bookstore and the books will be delivered to their home. Families will receive an email from MBS with a step by step process on how to order the books. More information can be found HERE, along with an application that includes the 2020-2021 Fiscal Year Income Eligibility Guidelines.
    Completed forms, along with income verification can be emailed to the Main Office:
    Stefanie Hodermarsky - shoderma@hinsdale86.org
    Julie Van Ness - jvanness@hinsdale86.org
    If you have any questions regarding the Fee Waiver program, the Main Office can be reached at: 630-570-8214 or 630-570-8211.

  • Senior Parking Permit Assignments 2020-2021 School Year

    Parking applications have been processed and all seniors that have completed the process have been assigned a parking permit for 1st or 2nd semester. Due to construction and some changes that were made in the senior parking lot, we needed to move some seniors from 2nd semester to 1st semester. All students that were moved should have received an email notification regarding this. Students will not be charged for parking in PushCoin until the school year begins. All students that hold a driver's permit will need to present their driver's license when they pick up their parking permit in the fall.  
    Students that are highlighted in yellow still need to submit a copy of their driver's license and current insurance card.

  • Exclusion from Attendance

    Proof of immunization and physical examination must be submitted to the health office at your school. Students who fail to do so before the first day of school will be excluded from school until the necessary information has been provided. Any absences that are the result of non-compliance with the immunization and examination requirements that are spelled out in the Illinois School Code are considered unexcused.
