  • Flex Learning Days, April 21 & 28

     

    Given the return to the traditional bell schedule, we will be holding Flex Learning Days on April 21 and 28 so that staff will have additional time for planning and collaboration. On these days, in-person learners will report to school and have 25-minute classes with five-minute passing periods (no lunch) from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Remote learners will participate in these classes via Zoom. See the attached document for the class schedule on April 21 & 28.

  • Solstice Art and Literary Magazine

     
    The Solstice staff is proud to announce that its yearly art and literary magazine is almost out!
     
    On May 10th students have the chance to pick up our book, an exhibition of the school's best art and writing that Hinsdale Central has to offer, which our team has spent the entire year curating and designing.
     
    The students that purchased an activity pass at the beginning of this year will be able to pick up this book for free, as the cost was included in the cost of the activity pass.
     
    Any students who didn't purchase an activity pass, you have the chance to pre-order it right now! The book costs $5, the proceeds of which will go to funding our club for years to come.
     
    If you want your own copy, head to Hinsdale Central's webstore, or click here!

    The Hinsdale D86 community is once again excited to celebrate our Senior Class of 2021! If you are the proud parent of a graduating senior, please consider joining our Facebook page and posting your senior's profile. This profile can highlight high school accomplishments, sports, clubs, interests, and future plans.

This may include dropping off treats or small gifts in the weeks leading up to graduation, and just generally ensuring this year's graduates know how awesome they are! This community is proud of the students' resiliency, hard work, and determination!

  • Changing from Remote to In-Person Instruction

     
    Given the pivot of our hybrid learning environment and daily schedule, we want to provide our students who are learning from home on a full-time basis with the chance to change instructional models if/when they are ready to return to class on campus. From now through the end of the school year, the families of students who are remote can use this form to request a switch to in-person instruction. Completed forms that we receive by 4 p.m. on Monday will be processed with the goal/intent of having those students resume in-person learning the following Monday. The one-week delay will give us time to update our student information system, check space configurations for social distancing purposes, ensure we have adequate supplies in our classrooms and assess the capacity in our lunch locations.

  • All Entering Seniors Health Requirement

     
    All students entering the 9th and 12th grades will be required to show proof of recent meningococcal conjugate vaccination (MCV). All 9th-grade students will be required to show proof of one dose received on or after 10 years of age. All 12th-grade students and students attending our Hinsdale District 86 Transition Program will need to show proof of MCV immunization in one of the following ways: one dose of MCV on or after 16 years of age; or two doses of MCV, with the first dose being on or after 10 years of age, and the second dose being on or after the age of 16 years. This vaccination will help to prevent your child from contracting a severe form of bacterial meningitis as well as other illnesses caused by this bacterium. 
     
    Some students may have already received this vaccine since it has been recommended for various populations in the recent past. In this case, all you would need to do is provide the Health Office verification of receiving the meningococcal conjugate vaccine.  
    Documentation accepted as complying with the requirement for students entering 9th and 12th grades could be one of the following items:
     
    A letter or note signed by your healthcare provider identifying the date the MVC was administered.
    Printout from your provider’s electronic medical record (EMR) that indicates the vaccine was administered.
    Current Certificate of Child Health Examination form, specifying the date the MCV was administered.
    In addition to your health care provider, many local health departments and pharmacies offer the vaccine. The Illinois Department of Public Health recommends that parents get their adolescents vaccinated now to avoid the last-minute rush during the summer. Please submit this information via mail or fax (630-570-8599) to the Health Office by July 1, 2021. You will continue to receive a reminder until this immunization requirement is compliant. Students without adequate proof of vaccination may not attend school and schedules will not be released until documentation is received and approved by the School Nurse. Please call the Health Office with any questions or concerns.

  • Supporting Hinsdale Central’s Asian American / Pacific Islander Community

     

    All of us at D86 and Hinsdale Central stand in solidarity with our Asian American and Pacific Islander students, staff, and community members against hate crimes and discrimination based on race. We want all students to feel safe and supported on our campus. We encourage any student who would like to talk more about the increase in violence against the Asian American and Pacific Islander community to reach out to any adult on campus. Counselors, social workers, deans and teachers are here to support our students.

    The Red Devil staff at Hinsdale Central High School are committed to a school environment that is inclusive, supportive and available to all students. As the D86 Equity Statement reads, we are committed to being leaders for equity in our policies, practices and curriculum, each stakeholder will proactively work to eliminate opportunity and achievement gaps, ensure success for all students by identifying and addressing personal and institutional bias and barriers, and provide strategies to ensure students of all races and cultures have equitable access to diverse educators, rigorous instruction, rich learning opportunities, social/emotional, academic and community supports, and resources to ensure success.
