Principal’s Message
Dear Mustang Families:
We have had a fantastic start to the school year. Students are putting in a great deal of effort into their academic
studies. Students are utilizing the Seminar Block, after school tutoring, and the Saturday Success Academy
to support their learning. We also have over 650 students involved in extra curricular activities this fall. We
encourage all students to be involved in at least one school club, sport, activity, or fine and performing art
program during the year. This is a great way for students to have a greater connection to their school, meet
friends, and continue to learn and grow during their high school years. Lastly, I would like to thank all of the
students. The students did a tremendous job of demonstrating their school spirit during Homecoming week.
Mustang Pride was displayed throughout the activities and events of the pep assembly, coronation ceremony,
dress-up days, the football game, and the Homecoming dance. THANK YOU STUDENTS for leading an
extraordinary start to the school year!
On the first day of school we welcomed national speaker Alex Sheen to share his message of “Because I Said
I Would.” He shared with the students and faculty about the importance of making a promise, and the critical
piece of the follow-through, commitment, and fulfillment of that promise. This was a powerful message from
Alex Sheen and a great way to start off the 2015-2016 school year.
On November 2nd the instructional staff and leadership team will be attending a professional workshop led by
author, co-founder of an academic enrichment program, and former teacher Mr. Eric Jensen. The professional
development program will synthesize brain research and provide practical applications to help students find
greater academic success and help them graduate to be college and career ready. This will be a great day for
the dedicated, conscientious, and caring staff at Rolling Meadows High School.
As the second quarter is set to begin, I want to encourage students to come to school each day. Being absent
from school can cause students to fall behind academically. We have many systems of support for when
students need to miss a day of school for an illness or a special circumstance. The challenge comes when
the absences increase. Please continue to have good communication with the teachers and counselors, seek
tutoring in the Academic Resource Room during the Seminar Block or at the Saturday Success Academy.
We want all students to be successful at Rolling Meadows High School. Let’s continue to work together to
help all students achieve.
I wish you all the greatest success throughout the second quarter!
Sincerely,
Eileen M. Hart, Principal

Mensaje Del Director
Estimadas familias mustang:
Hemos tenido un comienzo fantástico al año escolar. Los estudiantes están poniendo mucho esfuerzo en sus
estudios académicos. Los estudiantes están utilizando el periodo de seminario, tutoría después de la escuela
y la academia de éxito los sábados para apoyar su aprendizaje. También tenemos más de 650 estudiantes
involucrados en actividades extracurriculares este otoño. Animamos a todos los estudiantes de involucrarse
en por lo menos un club, deporte, o actividad escolar o en un programa de artes finas durante el año. Esta
es una gran manera de tener una conexión más grande a su escuela, de conocer amistades y de continuar
aprendiendo y creciendo durante sus años en la escuela secundaria. Por último, me gustaría agradecer a todos
los estudiantes. Los estudiantes hicieron un tremendo trabajo en demostrar su espíritu escolar durante la
semana de Homecoming. El orgullo mustang fue demostrado durante todas las actividades y en los eventos
de asambleas de espíritu escolar, en la ceremonia de coronación del rey y reina, en los días de disfraces,
el juego de fútbol americano y en el baile escolar. ¡GRACIAS ESTUDIANTES por dirigir un comienzo
extraordinario al año escolar!
En el primer día de clases le dimos la bienvenida a nuestro orador nacional Alex Sheen para compartir su
mensaje de “Por que dije que lo haría”. Compartió con los estudiantes y personal escolar sobre la importancia
de hacer una promesa y la pieza critica de seguir adelante, el compromiso y el cumplimiento de esa promesa.
Esto fue un mensaje poderoso de Alex Sheen y una gran manera de comenzar el año escolar 2015-2016.
El 2 de noviembre el personal instructivo y el equipo de liderazgo estarán atendiendo un taller profesional
dirigido por el autor, cofundador de un programa de enriquecimiento académico y ex maestro Sr. Eric Jensen.
El programa de desarrollo profesional va a sintetizar investigaciones del cerebro y proporcionar aplicaciones
prácticas para ayudar a estudiantes encontrar más éxito académico y ayudarlos a graduarse estando listos
para la universidad y una carrera profesional. Esto será un gran día para el personal dedicado y conciente en
Rolling Meadows High School.
Como el segundo trimestre esta por comenzar, quiero animar a los estudiantes de venir a la escuela todos
los días. Faltar a la escuela puede causar que el estudiante se atrase académicamente. Tenemos muchos
sistemas de apoyo en pie cuando estudiantes necesitan faltar un día a la escuela por una enfermedad o una
circunstancia especial. El problema viene cuando las ausencias incrementan. Por favor estudiantes continúen
de tener una buena comunicación con los maestros y consejeros, busquen tutoría en los centros de recursos
académicos durante seminario o en la academia de éxito los sábados. Queremos que todos los estudiantes
tengan éxito en Rolling Meadows High School. Continuemos trabajando juntos para ayudar a los estudiantes
lograr.
¡Les deseo gran éxito durante el segundo trimestre!
Atentamente,
Eileen M. Hart, Directora

Emergency Contact Information
In the unfortunate event that an emergency or crisis situation occurs in our area during
the school day, we want you to know that Rolling Meadows High School is prepared.
With the help of the Rolling Meadows Fire and Police Departments, we have designed a
Standardized School Crisis Plan that will assist us in effectively responding to these
types of situations.
While your natural instinct as a parent in an emergency is to go to your child’s school to
safeguard him/her, please understand that doing so may significantly impede our
response capabilities as well as those of our local emergency responders. It is vital that
school officials and the Police and Fire Departments have access to our buildings to
manage the situation and give care to students. In addition, it may be necessary to
evacuate students to another location if there is immediate danger.
In an emergency or crisis situation, we need your cooperation and assistance and ask
that you please follow the guidelines below:

In the event of a crisis that requires an evacuation/relocation of students, contact
(847) 718-7605 for information. In all other emergency situations, contact (847)
718-5600.

Tune to major local television and radio stations for information on the situation
and instructions on how to reunite with your child. In some emergency or crisis
situations, it may be necessary to relocate to another facility for safety reasons.
Your designated reunification site is Forest View Educational Center located at
2121 S. Goebbert Road in Arlington Heights.

When you travel to the reunification site, please be sure to bring picture
identification. We will only release students to their legal guardians, or the
authorized individuals as listed on your child’s emergency forms.
We thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Our ultimate goal is to keep your children safe while
they are under our care.

Información de contacto de emergencia
En el lamentable caso de que ocurra una emergencia o una situación de crisis en nuestra área
durante el día escolar, queremos que sepa que Rolling Meadows High School está preparada.
Con la ayuda de los Departamentos de Policía y de Bomberos de Rolling Meadows, hemos
diseñado un Plan Estandarizado ante Crisis en la Escuela que nos ayudará a responder de
manera eficaz ante estos tipos de situaciones.
Si bien el instinto natural como padre ante una emergencia es dirigirse a la escuela de su hijo
para protegerlo, entienda que hacer eso puede obstaculizar de forma significativa nuestras
capacidades de respuesta, así como la de los socorristas locales. Es imprescindible que los
funcionarios escolares y los Departamentos de Policía y Bomberos tengan acceso a nuestros
edificios para manejar la situación y brindar atención a los alumnos. Además, puede ser
necesario evacuar a los alumnos a otra ubicación si existe peligro inmediato.
Ante una emergencia o situación de crisis, necesitamos su cooperación y asistencia, y le
solicitamos que siga las siguientes pautas:

En caso de una crisis que requiera la evacuación/reubicación de los alumnos, llame al
(847) 718-7605 para obtener información. En todas las demás situaciones de
emergencia, llame al (847) 718-5600.

Sintonice la televisión local y las estaciones de radio más importantes para obtener
información sobre la situación e instrucciones acerca de cómo reencontrarse con su hijo.
En algunas situaciones de emergencia o crisis, puede ser necesaria la reubicación a otra
instalación por motivos de seguridad. El lugar designado para la reunificación es
Forest View Educational Center ubicado en 2121 S Goebbert Rd en Arlington
Heights.

Cuando vaya al lugar de reunificación, asegúrese de traer una identificación con
fotografía. Sólo permitiremos que los tutores legales o las personas autorizadas
recojan a los alumnos conforme a lo indicado en los formularios de emergencia de su hijo.
Gracias por su colaboración en este asunto. Nuestro objetivo máximo es mantener a sus hijos a salvo mientras
se encuentren bajo nuestro cuidado.

EXTENDED ABSENCES
Students need to schedule family vacations outside of the regular school calendar. Students need to realize that
these days are NOT school excused absences. The school calendar is published two years in advanced so families
can plan accordingly. We do understand that emergencies may arise. If students will be out of school three days
or more, they must request that absence in writing to Ms. Stanley, the Associate Principal of Instruction.
COLLEGE VISITS
Whenever possible, college visits should be planned over long weekends. Many universities and colleges have
Open Houses during school breaks.
FINAL EXAMS are never allowed to be taken early, so please plan accordingly.
DROPPING OFF ITEMS TO THE SECURITY DESK
We are requesting that parents/guardians do not leave items at the front desk to be delivered to students. We can

ROLLING MEADOWS HIGH SCHOOL
From the desk of Robert Yerkan in the College and Career Room (CCR)
2nd Quarter 2015
Website: http://rmhs.d214.org/college_resources/default.aspx
Mrs. Green (847) 718-5661
Mr. Yerkan (847) 718-5660
We have seen a lot of welcome activity in the CCR with seniors coming in to ask questions, schedule appointments, visit
with college representatives and to use the many resources available to them in the room. November 1 (by or before)
is the date the CCR has always recommended using as the target date for students to complete and submit their college
application(s). Many students followed that recommended date and have already heard back from the school(s) to which
they applied. Students are still bringing in applications and/or requests for transcripts to colleges and universities. The
numbers for the Class of 2016, as of October 13, are:
154: different colleges to which seniors have applied
749: applications/requests for transcripts submitted
33: percent that has submitted at least one application
39: college rep visits that have taken place in the CCR
80: individual or family consultations that were scheduled
While the numbers above show that 36% of our seniors have submitted at least one application, with over 90% of Rolling
Meadows High School (RMHS) students typically continuing their formalized education after high school, we still have
another 64% of our seniors who have not submitted a single application. Have you talked with your senior about her/his
post high school plans and whether or not s/he has submitted any applications? Although the November 1 recommended
postmark date for applications will have passed by the time you read this piece, if you are the parent of one of the seniors
in the 64% group, please talk with your senior. Encourage your senior to complete her/his application(s) as soon as
possible. Students needing assistance in identifying appropriate schools to apply to are encouraged to begin the process
by having a discussion with their counselor.
SCHOLARSHIPS: Seniors should now be focusing on the scholarship search and application process. A question
posed by many seniors, even more often posed by their parents, is “How do I find scholarships?” One source is the
on-line “Scholarship List.” The list summarizes all scholarships received by the CCR in the previous school year. Referencing the previous year’s Scholarship List can be helpful when scouting scholarships for the current school year. Most of the scholarships in the list have been received by the CCR for many years, and usually within the month under
which they are listed. It is still important, however, to check the current year’s postings of local scholarships (in the
College and Career Room, on the College and Career Room website and in Naviance), as there may be new scholarships
that were not featured in the previous year’s Scholarship List. We typically receive and post over 75 scholarship
opportunities each school year.
Whenever a new local scholarship opportunity is received in the CCR, Mrs. Green posts the opportunity on both the
Naviance and the CCR Scholarships pages, under Local Scholarships. To apply to any of the local scholarships students
can connect directly to the on-line application, using the live link, or they can download the application from the page,
when it is a hard-copy application.
Another source of scholarships are college/university scholarship offers. Schools make scholarships available to students
in a variety of ways. Some schools automatically consider students for scholarships as part of their application to the
school, while other schools require students to apply for scholarships. Some schools will invite identified students to
apply for scholarships. Students need to check with the schools they are applying to about their scholarship procedures
in order to NOT miss out on some valuable opportunities.

ROLLING MEADOWS HIGH SCHOOL
College and Career Room (Continued)
Both Seniors and Juniors are encouraged to stop by the CCR to check the posting of colleges that will be visiting our
school. A list of visiting schools can also be found on the CCR webpage and in Naviance. The schools, which will be
visiting, are also advertised in both the morning and scrolling announcements. Students are encouraged to list the schools
they are interested in under “colleges I’m thinking about” in their Naviance Account in order to be automatically notified
if the school they identified will be visiting the CCR. On the bulletin board, outside of the CCR, students can find
information on open houses and school visit programs that have been sent by different schools.
“What does “15 School Days” mean?” is a question frequently posed to the CCR. When a completed application,
or request for a transcript, is received in the CCR, we guarantee that it will be processed within 15 school days. Some
requests have seen a turn around time of just one day, while others take longer than 15 days. What slows the process
down? Some factors include an application that is not turned in complete or students not responding to messages sent
to their GAPPS email to address problems found. Applications and requests for transcripts are processed in the order in
which they are received. Only needing a transcript does not move a request to the top of the pile.
During the peak period of the application season the CCR receives a much higher volume of requests to process. Keeping
this in mind, please be advised that any application materials or transcript requests given to the CCR for processing that
have a December 1 deadline must be turned in by Tuesday, November 3. For a December 15 deadline, materials must
be turned in by Tuesday, November 17. Likewise, any applications and/or transcripts to be processed by the CCR prior
to the last day before winter break (December 18), including applications with a January 1 due date, must be turned in to
the CCR by Monday, November 23.
A letter was sent o the parents of seniors highlighting some new programs for seniors and their parents this year. The new
programming includes a special financial aid presentation presented by a representative from the Illinois Student Assistance
Commission (ISAC), which was held on Tuesday, October 13. Additionally, an ISAC representative will also be available
for student drop in times during seminar several times each month. Seniors can meet with the ISAC representative for
assistance with applications to colleges and scholarships, scholarship searches and, in February, the FAFSA.
In addition to regularly scheduled formal programming by the CCR, we are also conduct and/or coordinate other outreach
activities. Some of these additional initiatives include presentations in the AVID classrooms, visits to all seminars, and
arranging for presentations by outside speakers (e.g. on essay writing).
Register for the Selective Service: Males turning 18 (including non-citizen legal residents) must register with Selective
Service. This can be done on-line (www.sss.gov) or at a U. S. Post Office Branch. More specific information can also
be obtained by calling (847) 688-4638. Selective Service Registration is a requirement for males completing the FAFSA.
By the time you receive this newsletter a number of programs will have already been conducted, including the D214
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Night (September 2), Senior Curriculum (September 8 and 9), Senior
Parent Night (September 15) and the D214 Freshman/Sophomore College Planning “So, You Want to Go to College?”
program (October 15).
SENIOR CURRICULUM PROGRAM: The first half of the Senior Curriculum Program was spent highlighting some
of the components of the “Senior Resource Booklet” seniors were given, including college and university expectations,
application and essay tips, deadlines, and how to use the CCR and its resources. There was also an opportunity for students
to pose questions. During the second half of the program the students’ counselors took the students to computer labs
and reviewed the application process, including the Transcript Release and Teacher Request for Recommendation forms,
accessing and using the Family Connection (by Naviance) and connecting Naviance to the Common Application. The
parent night reviewed the same material but also included an optional visit to the CCR. A PowerPoint used during the
programs, as well as the Senior Resource Booklet, can be accessed by visiting the CCR webpage (see heading, above).
THE D214 “SO, YOU WANT TO GO TO COLLEGE?” PROGRAM: This program was presented to D214 freshmen,
sophomores and their parents in the Forest View Educational Center Theatre. The program highlighted five areas students
19
ROLLING MEADOWS HIGH SCHOOL
College and Career Room (Continued)
can focus on early in their high school careers in order to prepare themselves for college admissions and greater college
options. The PowerPoint for this presentation can also be accessed on the CCR webpage.
JUNIOR CURRICULUM I will kick off for this year’s juniors when they have their first formal group presentation on
the college search and selection process, during English classes on November 3 and 4. Juniors will be given a booklet
containing a wealth of useful information, most of which will be reviewed as part of the program. Be sure to ask your
junior to share the booklet with you! Juniors will also spend part of the block meeting with their counselors and accessing
their Naviance accounts. In February of 2016 we will follow up with juniors during Junior Curriculum II, when we will
have them come to the CCR for smaller group guidance sessions. Junior Parent Night will be on February 16.
Junior Curriculum I serves as the beginning of a series of programs available to juniors, including the D214 Athletic Night
(November 16), Ask the College Night (December 3), the Mustang Corral (December 16), Junior Financial Aid Night
(March 16) and the D214 College Night (April 5). The first three programs are explained later in this news piece and the
second two programs will be highlighted in the next Parent Newsletter.
Parents of juniors should have received a tri-fold highlighting the junior college planning programs. A cover letter,
outlining the junior college guidance program, with a planning guide on the back, was included in the mailing. Please
contact the CCR if you did not receive a copy of the booklet.
Naviance continues to be a program that is used more and more at RMHS. As part of the Senior Curriculum Program,
and Senior Parent Night, brief reviews of some of the tools available through Naviance were highlighted. Some of the
tools you may want to ask your senior about, and encourage them to use, would be the recommendation information
and resumes. If students want to know the status of their requests from the CCR they can go to the “colleges” tab, then
“colleges I’m applying to” and, finally, “view detailed status” to see what has been sent.
How does your senior get to Naviance? Students can link to Naviance in several ways. They can get there from the RMHS
Homepage by going to the Student Resources Tab and then to College Resources. They will find a link to Naviance at the
bottom right of the CCR homepage. By going that way they will get to the CCR webpage and be able to access all the
other resources available to them on that page. Another way to link to Naviance would be to go to “Family Connection”
on the Student Resources tab. The easiest way to go directly to the site is to go to: www.connection.naviance.com/

Students interested in pursing a career in the health field might want to attend the annual
Health Careers Night at Lutheran General Hospital, in Park Ridge. Students can learn about health career choices, talk

Student Athletes: Students, and parents of students, who are considering participating in NAIA or NCAA Division Level
Sports in college are encouraged to attend the annual D214 Athletic Night. This year’s program is scheduled for Monday,
November 16, at 7:00 P.M. in the FVEC Theatre. The presenter for the event will be Maureen A. Harty, Associate Director
of Academic and Membership Affairs of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).
Another valuable program, relevant to sophomores, juniors and their parents is the D214 “Ask the College Night.”
This year the program will take place on Thursday, December 3, beginning at 7:00 P.M. in the FVEC Theatre. Directed
primarily toward juniors, but sophomores and freshmen are also welcome, the program format is a panel of college
representatives from a variety of colleges (big, small, public, private, in-state, out-of-state, two-year and four-year) talking
about college applications to, and college life at, their type of institution. After their presentations the panel will engage
in a question-answer session with the audience. This annual program is always well received by both the presenters and
the audience and a great exchange of information takes place.

Looking further ahead, into December, the annual D214 Senior Financial Aid Night will take place at 7:00 P.M. on
Tuesday, December 8, in the Rolling Meadows High School Theatre. We are very excited to have Mark Anderson,
Associate Director and Coordinator of New Student Financial Aid Services at Lake Forest College, return again this
year as our presenter.
Students will be invited to the “Mustang Corral” in the RMHS theatre during seminar on Wednesday, December
16th. We will be hosting some of our 2015 graduates who will come back to our school to talk about their precollege (identifying/applying to schools and scholarships) and college experiences. During the program the returning
mustangs share some valuable insight on both the process and their experiences. Encourage your student to attend!
Would your student be interested in a “Gap Year” prior to attending a college or university? A Gap Year is a year
between high school graduation and the beginning of formalized post high school education program. Taking a Gap
Year is very common in many countries and is growing in popularity in the U.S. Students use the year to participate
in any of a number of career exploration, self-growth and/or community service experiences. You can get more
information about this option by attending the Gap Year Program at New Trier High School, in Winnetka, on Saturday,
January 30, 2016, from 1:00 to 3:00 P.M.

Breakfast??? Do you really need to eat breakfast?
From the Desk of Theresa Hennigan
RMHS School Nurse
Why You Should Eat a Healthy Breakfast
▪
▪
▪
▪
▪
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast provides you with
the energy and nutrients that lead to increased concentration in the classroom.
Studies show that breakfast can be important in maintaining a healthy body
weight.
Hunger sets in long before it's time for lunch, but because it's not convenient to
eat properly, many people who have not eaten breakfast snack on foods that
are high in fat and sugar.
People who skip breakfast are unlikely to make up their daily requirement for
some vitamins and minerals that a simple breakfast would have provided.
Breakfast provides energy for the activities during the morning and helps to
prevent that mid-morning slump.
Tips on Eating a Quick and Healthy Breakfast
▪
▪
▪
▪
▪
▪
Pick 2-3 foods, including at least one from each of the following food groups:
-bread and grain (i.e. cereal, toast, muffin)
-milk and milk product (i.e. low-fat yogurt, low-fat milk)
-fruit or vegetable group (i.e. bananas, apples, carrots)
Pick up portable breakfast items when at the grocery store. You should buy
foods like fruit, low-fat yogurt, whole grain breakfast bars, or granola bars for
those mornings when you have to eat breakfast on the go.
Replace or accompany that morning cup of coffee with a glass of orange juice or
milk.
Make an omelet! You can shorten preparation time by chopping up your
vegetables ahead of time.
Get up 15 minutes earlier. You can fix and consume a healthy breakfast in 15
minutes or less.
Plan ahead to eat breakfast. This means you should decide what you are going
to eat for breakfast before the next morning. You can save time by putting out
the box of cereal or cutting up some fruit the night before.

Digital Transformations
We are extremely excited about how well our students have transitioned into being a 1 ­ 1 school. Now that every student has an iPad, they have increased access to resources, more opportunities to collaborate with their peers, and less obstacles to overcome with regards to communicating with their teachers. Many teachers are using Schoology to present their curriculum, while others use self created websites or other platforms. I encourage you to talk with your child about how each of their teachers are distributing information and how assignments are being collected for each class. Here are few resources that are available to you: On November 7th, District 214 will be partnering with feeder districts to create Engage 2015 Parent Tech Conference. This is a free event for parents offering an opportunity to hear from teachers about the roles and implications of technology both in and out of the 21st century classroom. We are currently running our first ever Schoology course for parents titled, ​“Stay Connected, A Parent’s Guide to Instructional Technology in D214.” ​ ​This Free online course is designed as a six week course using the Learning Management System ​Schoology.​ Course topics include: ●
Today’s Classroom ●
Digital Balance ●
Social Media ●
Digital Citizenship ●
Strategies for managing technology at home We ​WILL​ be running this course again second semester so if you missed this opportunity, there will be another chance to enroll.

Back to School – Think Safety – 2015-16 School Year
As the new school year begins, the Rolling Meadows Police Department is urging motorists, pedestrians
and bicyclists to share the streets responsibly so everyone can have a great start for the back to school
season. Drivers should allow extra travel time and watch for children and buses. Students need to stay alert
and think safety. Parents should talk with their children about staying alert, looking both ways, obeying
crossing guards, using crosswalks and thinking about safety. This will help students get to school safely and
securely.
Tips below provide reminders about the basic Rules of the Road, including pedestrian, driver and cyclist
safety, and how to drive when around school buses.
WHAT TO DO WHEN APPROACHING A SCHOOL BUS
• When a school bus stops, the flashing red lights go on and the stop arm comes out, drivers in BOTH
directions are required to stop. This is the most dangerous time with children getting on or off the bus.
• It is against the law to pass a stopped school bus with its flashing red lights activated and stop arm
extended. (** select buses are equipped with photo enforcement cameras / $150 citation).
• Drivers must be patient. There is simply no room for aggressive driving around a school bus.
DRIVERS NEED TO REMEMBER
• Realize that your commute takes longer when school is in session – allow more time.
• Stay alert. Avoid distractions – especially mobile devices.
• And remember, Illinois law requires motorists to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks.
• Watch for children walking in the street, especially if there are no sidewalks.
WHAT PARENTS AND KIDS NEED TO KNOW
• Children and their parents need to review the rules of the road too.
• For travel by school bus: have a safe place to wait for the bus, AWAY from traffic and the street, stay
away from the bus until it comes to a complete stop and the driver signals you to enter.
• When walking: only cross the street at a marked crosswalk, preferably one has a crossing guard. Before
crossing a street, look left, then right, then left again. Stay alert. Follow signals.
• When riding a bike, don’t ever ride your bike across an intersection. Get off and walk it across after
looking both ways for oncoming traffic or waiting for a crossing signal. Children should always wear a
helmet when cycling.
• Stay visible – wear light and/or reflective clothing, especially when walking in the dark.
Motorists should take extra care between the morning hours of 6-9 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. during the school year.
Motorists should limit distractions in the car and watch for pedestrian crossing, especially around school
zones. We are all responsible for traffic safety. If you have any questions, please call the police nonemergency number, 847-255-2416.
