Res Reminders - Week of August 23, 2015

Construction Updates: including School Access Drop Off/Pick Up Procedures, & #88 Higgins bus re-routing

Pick Up Reminder

As construction continues toward completion, thank you to students and parents for their cooperation as we manage after school traffic. Students should continue to use the sidewalks to keep foot traffic safe and driveways clear.  Parents are reminded to pull into parking spaces to wait for their daughters in order to keep the drive clear for smooth traffic flow and provide a safe place for students to meet their rides.
Student Ventra Cards

Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors - Students who have a Student Ventra Card from the 2014-15 school year need to have them reactivated for the current school year.  To do so, please e-mail Mrs. Carlson at or visit the Main Office and provide the following information: the student's name, Student Ventra Card number and its expiration date. 

& Students Needing New Cards - Students may purchase a Student Ventra Card at the Main Office and it will be activated within 24 hours.  Cards are available for $2.  CTA Student Fare & Student Ventra Card Information

Club Enrollment Drive

Registration for clubs is on a first come, first serve basis. A student's enrollment in her clubs is finalized when she pays her club dues which will occur the week of August 31. Students must pay their dues on time, or they will be removed from the club roster.
