Big picture

We are so happy to see our students returning to our LRC Study Hall! Here are some updates for this year:

  • Students coming from their regular Study Hall class must have a pass from an academic teacher. They then bring that pass to the Study Hall desk where they will be checked in for attendance.

  • Students coming during their lunch period do not need a pass and do not need to check in with our attendance desk.

  • All students are required to stay in the LRC for their full study hall or lunch period. Bathroom passes are available for those who need them.

  • Students may bring a small snack to the LRC such as a cookie, chip, drink, etc., however, no full meals are allowed. All we ask is that student be sure to clean up after themselves.

  • We also invite students to check out one of our games (Sorry, Chess, Connect4, etc.) grab a coloring page, or work on a puzzle. We just need the student’s ID and ask that all students respect the learning process of students around them.

SENIOR PHOTOS 2022-2023

Any senior wanting to be included in the 2022-2023 yearbook must have their senior yearbook picture taken by Root Studios, the official yearbook photographer of St. Charles North High School. Even if you do not plan to purchase photos from Root Studios, seniors must commit to a complimentary sitting with them to take a yearbook photo.


Please note that Root Studios recently sent an email to all senior families with more detailed information. Sitting sessions take place at St. Charles North High School throughout the summer and early fall. You may sign up for your photography session at rootseniors.com.


If you do not currently have an appointment, please visit rootseniors.com. Sitting sessions take place at St. Charles North High School and will conclude in the fall. The next upcoming dates are: October 3, 4, 5, 6 and 11.


Please call Root Studios at (815) 433-1766 if you experience technical difficulties or have further questions.
