Locker Clean Out Information

We are in the process of organizing a safe time for students to schedule a time to enter the building to clear out their academic and PE lockers in June and/or July if they choose. Students can leave their belonging in their lockers until school resumes in the fall. More information on this will be coming out shortly.  
Text Book Buy Back Information and Fee Waiver Book Returns

With the closing out of the 2019-2020 school year, we wanted to make sure all students had an option to return their textbooks. 

If you purchased your textbooks through MBS, our textbook supplier, please utilize their Online Buyback program. Students/families can log-in to the MBS bookstore ( https://bnck-12.com/hinsdalecentral ), and click “Sell Books.” Please complete a quote, print it out and state that the shipment will be sent back to MBS. You will be provided a prepaid shipping label and can drop the package at any UPS location. Please note that the quote is only valid for 14 days after generated. If textbooks are not returned within that 14-day window from when the quote is printed, students/families will need to log-in and generate a new quote.

For a “how to” Online BuyBack video – please click here: https://vimeo.com/402584705/091cb4acb3

If you have any questions regarding this process, please reach out to MBS Customer Service at 1-800-325-3252.
 
All returning students who have books purchased and provided by the district can return them in the fall when school resumes.

MBS understands that students will be selling books back later than usual because of the situation we are in with school closings.

Important Chromebook and Account Information for Seniors

Graduating seniors will have full ownership of their Chromebooks; shortly after graduation, the IT department will be removing the devices from the D86 Google admin console and the devices will function without any restrictions in place (devices will need to be restarted in order to clear the restrictions).

On Friday, July 31, 2020, District 86 Google accounts and email accounts for graduating seniors/non-returning students will be deactivated. After July 31, 2020 students will no longer be able to access their District 86 Google and email accounts, and the files/messages contained within will be deleted.

If students would like to transfer their District 86 Google Drive files to a personal Google account, they should visit the following website while logged into their school account and follow the instructions: https://takeout.google.com/transfer . Important emails should be forwarded to a personal email account as well.
 
This feature will be available until Friday, July 31, 2020.

Please note : If students are using their hinsdale86.org account on any third party sites or services (i.e. College Board, Dropbox, Pandora, Twitter, etc.), students should make sure they change their contact/login information at each of those sites and services before July 31, 2020. After this date, they will no longer be able to receive notifications/log into these services.

Summer Reading 2020

Need a break from Netflix? Rediscover your love of reading this summer with the perfect social-isolation activity: binge-reading. Your teachers have hand-selected for you a list of 40 books that will help you escape, make you laugh, or cry, or think. The lists are divided into book lists for each grade level, but feel free to choose any book on any list that you finding interesting.  And once you finish one book, you’ll probably want to go back to the list to find another title. You can find the book lists (and links to book trailer videos) here and descriptions of all the books in a slide deck here
Summer Math Packets

In order to ensure that students are fully prepared for math class in fall with all of the essential prerequisite skills, we have prepared summer math packets to keep skills fresh over the summer. To access these packets, CLICK HERE , and download the packet that corresponds to the math class students are taking next year. Once students work through the problems, they can check their answers using the solutions we posted there as well. Tutorial links are provided if students struggle with particular skills. 
 
Any questions regarding the summer review packet can be directed to Kurt Vonnahme, Mathematics Department Chair, at 630-570-8420 or  kvonnahm@hinsdale86.org.
