ACADEMIC SUPPORT

Falling behind your work? Want to improve your grades? Need a little extra help?


We have Academic Support now open for students to attend during their lunch time and after school. It is a place where students can attend and receive help with their school work as well as having a quiet space to work. If you are interested in your student attending either lunch and/or after school please email Stacy Spiropoulos at Spiropoa@ccsd15.net or call at 847.963.7400 ext. 7540.

Extra-Curriculars

We still had a few students stay after school, and not let their parents know they were staying. Students, please check in with your parents the night before. If you forget to communicate with your parents, please ask your teacher to use a classroom phone to let your parent know or come down to the office.


Additionally, please know that attendance at away District 15 sporting events is only allowed with the presence of an adult. We also encourage adult chaperones at Palatine HS events, including football games.
