New Bus Routes for Rutledge and Lincoln
Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 2 the morning bus routes for Rutledge Hall and Lincoln Hall students will be separate. The afternoon routes were already separate. These updated routes also reflect some time adjustments. Students who ride the bus were sent home with a postcard on Friday, Aug. 29 detailing changes to their specific routes and times.

There are no changes to the Todd Hall routes.

Free Busing for Full School Year

The 'Get on the Bus' initiative has been so successful that the District is offering free busing for the full school year. The reduced traffic around campus has made a significant difference in improving student safety during the Crawford Avenue construction. Parents who already paid the bus fee will be mailed a check for the full amount by September 8. Thank you to all the parents who have signed up so far. There is still time to register for the bus. Simply complete the online registration form.

We thank all the parents who are participating in free busing this fall.


If you have any questions or comments regarding busing, please complete this online comment form or send an email to: The District will work to respond within 24 hours or as soon as possible. The District is working to have all bus routes running smoothly the week of August 25. You may also call the district office at 847-675-8234. Thank you for your support!

Flag Ceremony Celebrates First Day of School

Honor guard

Lincoln Hall ceremony

Students and staff celebrated the start of school on Wednesday, Aug. 20., with flag-raising ceremonies at Lincoln Hall and Rutledge Hall. Members of the Lincolnwood police and fire departments served as the honor guard. 

The flag-raising ceremony, started by Dr. Weiss five years ago, is a great way to kick off the year for students, staff and parents! We greatly appreciate the police and fire departments for providing an honor guard for both ceremonies.
