IMPORTANT REMINDERS AND INFORMATION
AtoZ Directory Coming in October!
Once New Trier has all student data verified via
InfoSnap, this will be converted into the new directory and made available to
all current families in mid to late October. Every household will receive an
AtoZ directory Login ID and Password to access the Online AtoZ Directory at that
time. Please use that to login and get started on the AtoZ app. Directories
are no longer printed in an effort to protect family information from
solicitations, as well as to be more green.

Right Under Your Nose: Recognizing Signs of Teen Alcohol & Drug Use
Wednesday, November 1, 7:00-8:30 PM, Room C234, Northfield
How do you know if your teen is exhibiting typical adolescent
behavior or something more concerning? It's often difficult to tell. This
program will help parents identify signs and symptoms of teen alcohol and drug
use and offer advice on what to do if you think your child may be using.
Representatives from LEAD (Leading Efforts Against Drugs & Alcohol) will
discuss things to look for in your teen's behavior as well as in his or her
bedroom! (Hint: empty sunscreen bottles and hollowed out pens are just a couple
of ways teens may hide drugs and alcohol.) Parents will have the opportunity
to tour a mock-up teen bedroom to see firsthand what kinds of items could
indicate your student is engaging in risky behavior. We'll also learn more
about e-cigs, nicotine, and the ubiquitous Juul vaping device that has swept
North Shore high school campuses.
This program is for parents
