Dear New Trier High School Families,                                                                                   

While there are still several more weeks of summer to enjoy before the first day of school on Thursday, September 7 th , it is time to start preparing for the 2017-18 school year.  This Back-to-School packet includes information about:

  1. Student Schedule - Schedules will be sent via email after July 31 st to all parent/guardians and all sophomore, junior, & senior students.  Schedules will reflect the courses your child requested unless a change was necessary as a result of a schedule conflict, change due to summer school, second semester failure, teacher recommendation for level change, and/or post-high school counselor recommendation.  Schedules will not be available on HAC- Home Access Center until the start of the school year.
  2. Individualized Book List - The list will be sent in the same email as student schedules.  It will include textbooks for the specific courses in your student's schedule.  You may use this list to order books online beginning now with a flat $7.50 shipping fee per order for delivery to your home using this link . The walk-in book sale will be at the Northfield Campus from July 31 st -August 30 th , Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  3. Important dates and links for athletic and performing arts participation, the New Trier book sale, other school supply purchases, yearbook sales, mandatory health forms, transportation, calendars and daily schedules, and other website links and deadlines.

In our attempt to become greener in our communications, we have reduced the amount of paper being mailed to your homes.  Instead we are including more information on our school website at this Back-to-School.  We also sent this letter via our email listserv so you may access the information in multiple ways.  If you did not receive this letter via email, please contact the Records Office ( ) to update your contact information. 

We look forward to seeing you on September 7 th and hope you have a relaxing and enjoyable rest of the summer.  In addition, expect to receive information in August regarding the opening of the new West Building at the Winnetka Campus.
