    The “Red Carpet” Prom Parent Committee is looking for parents of all grade levels to help!
    Please sign up and join to help set up gym with decorations for the Red Carpet event on May 5, 2017. The Pre-Prom Red Carpet Event provides a safe and fun place to take pictures and capture a few memories before loading buses for prom for the students.
    Here are some answers to frequently asked questions-
    -Prom is scheduled for Saturday, May 5, 2018
    -helpers meet at Hinsdale Central at 11 AM by the gym at the east side of the building. Help and assemble small props for picture taking as well as helping with putting up the decorations for this year's prom scene.
    - the red carpet event lasts for about one hour
    -you don't need to stay for the event but please return after (if you can). But you are more than welcome to stay in the background to check out the scene. We are looking for help before to set up and then breaking down right after the Red Carpet event ends. You can help the whole time or if you only have a few hours to spare. Please indicate that as well in the comment box when signing up.

  • Procedures for Closing or Delaying Start of School in the Event of Severe Weather
    Any changes—including any type of delayed start or closing—will be announced by 5:30 a.m. on the morning of a possible closure in the following ways:
    • District website, https://d86.hinsdale86.org
    • Twitter, follow the District @HinsdaleD86
    • Push notification through the District 86 app (you must have the app downloaded and push notifications enabled to receive)
    • Text notification to parent/guardian cell phone numbers listed in your student’s account
    • Email notification to parent/guardian email addresses listed in your student’s account
    • Automated phone call notification to parent/guardian telephone numbers (all mobile and landline) listed in your student’s account
    • Emergency Closing Center website, http://www.emergencyclosingcenter.com
    Please know that the school calendar adopted by the Board of Education allows us to use scheduled holidays and other non-attendance days as make-up days to recover instructional time during the school year rather than tacking lost days onto the end of the year. If schools close due to severe weather, the plan for converting non-instructional days to school attendance days will be announced as quickly as possible.

  • Registration is Open for the Second Installment of the 2017-18 Community Speaker Series
    Dr. Michael Bradley, Author of “Crazy-Stressed”
    Wednesday, February 21 at 7 p.m. and Thursday, February 22 at 9:30 a.m.
    Community Consolidated School District 181 and Hinsdale Township High School District 86 announced that registration is open for the second installment of the 2017-18 Community Speaker Series featuring Dr. Michael Bradley, author of “Crazy-Stressed.” Dr. Bradley will discuss his book and helping today’s overwhelmed teens on Wednesday, February 21 at 7 p.m. and Thursday, February 22 at 9:30 a.m. Both 90-minute sessions will be held at the Community House.
    “I think we can all agree, parents and educators alike, that our students are indeed ‘crazy-stressed,’” said Hinsdale District 86 Superintendent Dr. Bruce Law. “We see it every day in students of all ages, whether they are AP students, honors students, athletes, musicians, low or high income, pick your category, students are feeling stressed. We have been adding supports and working very hard to embed social-emotional learning strategies into our curriculum to give students the tools they need to cope with the challenges of life and we look forward to widening the discussion and hearing more on this topic from Dr. Bradley.”
    There is no cost to attend either session but registration is required. Register online at http://www.d181foundation.org/.
    The Community Speaker Series is presented by District 86 and District 181 in conjunction with the D181 Foundation and The Community House and was designed to inform and inspire families about issues in education and parenting. 
    Event coordinators note, "New research tells us: Our kids are not all right. Too many are struggling with excessive academic loads, extracurricular demands, sleep deprivation, and 24/7 connectivity, causing epidemic rates of anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and suicide. While teen brains are hardwired for risk-taking and overactive emotions, their coping abilities are at all-time lows." In his presentation, Dr. Bradley first explains what's driving today's adolescent anxiety, depression, and negative behaviors and what the latest brain development research is telling us. Then with proven strategies from his three decades of practice and his own years as a father, Dr. Bradley provides practical advice on how to connect with your children to build their life-saving resiliency and what to do when you're facing a major mental health issue.
