Below is a list from the school website of what facilities and services will be available during the strike. Below that is a list of Wednesday's scheduled athletic practices. Tonight's Parent's Open House has been canceled.

From the school:

On Wednesday, September 12 through Friday, September 14:

  • The building will remain open as a safe, supervised, and supportive environment for all students. On these three days, buses will not run nor will students be required to attend school.  Our doors, however, will remain open to students between 7:50am and 3:10pm. Students should enter through the circle drive and will need to show their student ID.  Lunch will also be available each day. We thank the CROYA, Lake Forest Recreation staff and nurses from Northwestern/Lake Forest Hospital who will assist our administrative and support staff in the building.
  • The college application process for seniors will not be impacted.  Transcripts and other application-related processes will be continued without interruption.  On Wednesday, September 12, the following college representatives will be in the CRC:

           8:45 AM               Butler University
           9:40 AM               Kalamazoo College
           10:40 AM             University of San Francisco
           11:30 AM             Otterbein University
           12:30 PM             University of St. Andrews (Scotland)
           1:25 PM               Columbia College
           2:20 PM               Knox College

           Friday, September 14 - College visit schedule (.pdf)
            ACT Prep, SAT Prep, College Essay Writing Schedules (.pdf)
   

  • The support staff in Student Services will also be available in Room 104 throughout the day to assist with questions regarding the college process. Additional support with the application process will be available for students in the library.
  • The resource center will be staffed for students needing academic support.
  • We were recently informed that the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) will strictly enforce the rules regarding interscholastic contests.  This ruling prohibits us from participating in athletic competition if the teachers go on strike. Every attempt will be made to reschedule any contests missed due to a work stoppage. We are very disappointed with this decision, as we believe it is in the best interest of our students to continue scheduled activities.  In the event of a strike, please check the athletic homepage for the practice schedules on Wednesday and daily the duration of the strike.

What about extracurricular arts/music activities and private music lessons that might occur at the school?
Emily Stone (Editor) September 13, 2012 at 01:26 PM
That's a good question, Gigi. I don't see an answer on the school website. Let me see what I can find out. If anyone else knows, please chime in.
