Dear 8th Grade Parents/Guardians:
Matriculating 8th grade students will soon begin the process of enrolling in Vernon Hills High School for the 2020-2021 school year.
As part of that process, the PSAT 8.9 (preliminary SAT) will be administered on Saturday, October 19, 2019 to 8th grade students who will be attending Vernon Hills High School. Specific PSAT 8.9 information and instructions for students were mailed home.
Throughout the enrollment process be sure to check both the Hawthorn 73 and VHHS websites for updates & reminders. In addition, save the date for VHHS 8th grade orientation the evening of January 23, 2020 (specific details will be mailed to you in late December). If you have questions, please contact the VHHS data processing office at 847.932.2030 or 847.932.2088. Thank you for your support and cooperation during the enrollment process. We are looking forward to serving your family.
Choice Zone Residents Only:
All middle school students who currently live in the D128 choice zone will take the PSAT 8.9 at Vernon Hills High School even if the family intends to select Libertyville High School. If your student is in the choice zone, the decision of which District 128 high school to attend does not have to be made until after 8th grade orientation. Libertyville High School will hold orientation on January 9, 2020 and Vernon Hills High School will hold orientation on January 23, 2020. In early January we will mail your family a Choice Zone Declaration asking you to declare which school you would like your son/daughter to attend. This document is due to VHHS by January 27, 2020.
