In order to attend the tryouts, girls must have a signed permission slip with them (found on the Highland Athletics Website) and a current physical on file with the school nurse. The physical must be dated within the past 13 months. If you are not sure if your current physical is already on file, please check the list on the wall outside of the Nurse's office. If their name is NOT on the list, then their physical is NOT current. If you have any questions about the tryouts, you can contact the coaches (Mr. Carollo -7th grade or Mrs. Beshel- 8th) or the Athletic Director (Mrs. Langlie). Questions regarding physicals should be directed to the school nurse (Mrs. Patterson).

STOP! For School Buses
Announcement Photo

Our District 70 school buses will be on the road beginning Aug. 21st - the first day of school. Please obey the law. 

In Illinois, all lanes of traffic in both directions must stop when a school bus is stopped to pick up or drop off kids while traveling along a two-lane road. This also applies to one-way streets no matter how many lanes of traffic.

On a four-lane road with at least two lanes moving in the opposite direction, only motorists going in the same direction as the bus are required to stop
