Dear Parents/Guardians of MHS students,
 
It has come to my attention that families have received the Blue Card (necessary for accessing the school building during the hybrid schedule) and new student ID card for some students but not all students. 
 
A second mailing will be going out today to correct this issue. 
 
In addition, the Blue Card requirement to gain access to the school bus or to enter the high school building will be lifted for Monday, January 25
 
Tuesday, January 26 is a Yellow schedule where all students are remote – there is not Blue Card requirement for Tuesday.
 
Wednesday, January 27 and onward, the Blue Card requirement will be in place for student to access the bus or building.
 
I apologize for the inconvenience.
 
Sincerely,
Anthony Kroll

Dear Parents/Guardians,
 
This letter is to provide you with additional information as you and your child prepare to attend in-person instruction next week.  
 
Instructional Videos
The following videos have been created to inform students on particular hybrid procedures while in the building.  Students and parents are encouraged to review these videos and contact the school with any questions.
Each video has Spanish subtitles.  To access the subtitles, click on the “CC” in the YouTube video menu bar.
 
Student Parking
Please note that NO parking permit is needed for students wishing to drive to in-person instruction.  There is not a cost to student parking this semester.  However, students must provide vehicle information to security (Make, Model, Color, and Registration Information).  All parking rules and regulations need to be followed in the Student Handbook.  Student parking is designated to the junior and senior parking lots only.  Students may not park in the pool, west or north parking lots.
The link to register can be accessed at www.d120.org > Students > On-Campus Parking & Security > HYBRID STUDENT DRIVING FORM  -  “Click” fill out all questions.
 
Drinks and Food
Students may bring a water bottle.  Bottle fillers are operational in the building.  Drinking fountains are not operational.  
 
Food is not allowed in the building during in-person instruction.  
 
Lockers
Lockers and locker rooms will not be used during in-person instruction.  Students will not change clothes for Physical Education classes.
 
Leaving the Building
Juniors and Seniors are able to leave the school when not in class.  During 2nd semester this school year, parents may give permission for their freshman and sophomore students to leave campus when not in class.  Parents/Guardians may have already done this when choosing in-person learning.  Parents may call 847-949-2200  EXT 1230 to change this designation.
 
Bus transportation will only be available at the start and end of four periods of instruction.
 
Students will not be allowed to sit in cars in the school parking lot.

We are hosting Community Town Hall Meetings on the topic of: 
Health and Proactive Measures for Families
 
Live links for dates and times here:

Dear Parents/Guardians of the Class of 2024 and Transfer Students,
 
At the D120 Board of Education this week, a date of Monday, January 25 was set for the start of the hybrid schedule and in-person instruction.  Since our freshmen class and transfer students have never had the opportunity to be in the building this school year, MHS is offering a shortened Freshman and New Student Orientation on Friday, January 22.
 
All freshmen and new students are invited to attend this event regardless if they are scheduled to come to the building during the hybrid schedule or continue learning remotely for the semester. 
 
This event is scheduled for 1 hour and will include a welcome, presentation on supports and expectations and a building tour to locate student classrooms.  There are multiple 1 hours sessions during the day to choose.
 
Students who wish to attend this event must register.  Registration opens at noon on Saturday, January 16.  Click HERE to register!  Students will be asked to select a particular time and group.  Groups are filled on a “first come, first served” basis.
 
When arriving at the building, students will be temperature checked and answer the COVID19 health questions.  Students must wear a mask and maintain a 6 ft social distance the entire time they are in the building.
 
It is my hope this event will jumpstart friendships, create new interests and excitement and start the second semester off in a positive direction.  Please encourage your student to register for this event.
 
Sincerely,
 
Dr. Anthony Kroll, Principal
Mundelein High School

Dear Parents/Guardians,
 
On Tuesday night, the District 120 Board of Education set a date for the beginning of hybrid learning.  Families who have chosen hybrid learning for their student will begin attending class in-person the week of January 25.  Therefore, MHS will transition to the hybrid schedule beginning on Monday, January 25.  Below, the January calendar shows the change from the remote schedule to the hybrid schedule.  Under the hybrid schedule, MHS will continue with Red/Gray days where hybrid students will attend in-person instruction and Yellow days where all students and staff are conducting class remotely.
 
 
All students and staff returning to the building are required to:
  • Wear a mask at all times
  • Maintain a 6 foot distance from others
  • Wash hands regularly during the day
  • Use blue card (students) to be allowed into the building
  • Stay home when not feeling well
 
Hybrid Schedule Student Group Assignments
For the families who chose the hybrid schedule, students are divided into two groups, Group 1 & Group 2.  Group 1 students will come to the building on Monday and Tuesday.  Group 2 students will come to the building on Thursday and Friday.
 
For the families who chose to continue with remote learning, students will continue to learn as they have been this year.  MHS teachers will be teaching concurrently the students attending in-person and remotely.



Student Group & Transportation Assignments 
Hybrid schedule group assignments and transportation details will be emailed by Tuesday, January 19.  Please call the Assistant Principal’s Office at 847-949-2200 EXT1260 with any questions about hybrid schedule group assignments.  
 
For transportation questions, please call the Deans’ Office at 847-949-2200 EXT1250.
 
Remote students will not receive this communication.
 
As MHS prepares to welcome students back to in-person instruction while maintaining quality virtual instruction for student learning remotely, I want to thank families for their patience in our transition.  Our goal will be to continue to provide the highest quality education at all times.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at 847-949-2200 EXT1230.
 
Sincerely,
 
Dr. Anthony Kroll, Principal
