  • District 86 Student Handbook

    The 2020-21 edition of the District 86 Student Handbook has been revised to align it with the district's policy manual, which was updated by the administration and approved by the board in the fall. The handbook and planners for Hinsdale Central and Hinsdale South include school rules, procedures and expectations, as well as a summary of the policies that govern the district. You can access these resources by visiting https://d86.hinsdale86.org/handbook.

  • Process for Changing Instructional Models

    Some of our students will learn from home on a full-time basis to start second semester, but would like to maintain the option of switching to our hybrid model. With this in mind, we have developed the following process that these students and their families can use to request a change from remote to in-person instruction.

  • Student Lunches

    Students have two choices on days they are eating lunch on campus: they can bring their lunch with them to school, or they can take a free lunch provided by the District.
    Hinsdale Central is not allowing any dropoff of lunches, nor any deliveries of lunches from outside vendors. Students who have special dietary needs or requests can contact Quest at 630-570-8100.

  • Course Selection for CURRENT Students:

    We will begin selecting courses for the 21-22 school year in the coming weeks. Students will receive the following information via email:
    1. List of all the courses they have been recommended for
    2. Video instructions provided for students to log into their HAC account and select the courses they want to take prior to meeting with their counselor
    3. Notification of a scheduled time/date to meet with their counselor to finalize the courses they have chosen
    This will occur:
    January 15- 21 for current Freshmen
    February 1- February 4 for current Sophomores
    January 22- 28 for current Juniors
    It is important that students come to their appointment with the courses they are interested in AND at least 2 alternative electives. We do our best to get students into their first choice courses, but this is not always possible. Students who miss their scheduled time are responsible for contacting their counselor by February 4 or courses will be selected for them. Please reach out to your counselor with any changes.
