Reminder: Block 4 Re-Opening Plans & Procedures
Thank you for your continued partnership throughout the 20-21 school year. We continue to closely monitor the changing guidelines and mitigations being issued by the CDC, IDPH, and the Illinois State Board of Education as they pertain to in-person instruction, operations, and logistics for schools. More details about Block IV Hybrid Instruction and Pandemic Procedures can be found here. 

We are so grateful to be opening our doors after Spring Break to the 4th Block of the school year! Trinity will be a very busy place as we prepare for IB examinations and the bittersweet farewell to the amazing class of 2021 who has demonstrated so much flexibility, resilience, and strength this year.

Parents and Guardians of seniors, we are working behind the scenes in collaboration with the Village of River Forest's police department and trustees to deliver a senior week (May 21-28th) full of safe events and celebrations to honor the class of 2021. Thank you for your continued patience, we expect to share detailed plans with you following Spring Break as we are awaiting clearance from local authorities for some of the proposed outdoor gatherings.  A rough outline of the calendar of events for seniors can be found in the Block IV re-opening plans.  

If your Blazer is returning to campus for the first time for in-person learning this block, please be sure to have her Appian app set up in advance of Tuesday morning, April 6th. If you have Appian screening app questions, please contact our Tech Team at support@trinityhs.org.

Beginning Tuesday, April 6th Blazers return to full uniform. 
Parents, please remind your daughters that our uniform policy will be strictly enforced beginning on Tues. April 6th. Students who are out of uniform will serve a Uniform Violation Detention during their Lunch Circle Time.
Summer School Electives
Following is information about the two elective courses that we will be offering as summer courses. Opting to take an elective course over the summer will allow for a bit more freedom in your schedule during the coming school year(s). Both courses are taught by outstanding Trinity teachers and will provide you with the credit for a full block-long course. I encourage you to consider signing up for one of the two courses.
