Dear North Shore School District 112 Community,
Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to those in our community who lost loved ones, were injured, or witnessed the horrific event at the Fourth of July parade.
We held drop-in counseling today at Highland Park High School in partnership with Township High School District 113 and area mental health providers. Starting tomorrow, Wed., July 6, and Thurs., July 7, District 112 will be providing drop-in counseling at Oak Terrace School and Ravinia School. Oak Terrace School is located at 240 Prairie Avenue in Highwood, and Ravinia School is located at 763 Dean Avenue in Highland Park.
Counseling hours will be 9 am-12 pm and 1 pm-4 pm.
Spanish providers will be on-site at Oak Terrace. We will also have support in place for the District 112 summer school programs. Based on community needs, we will provide support as long as needed.
