  • 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.
