4/22/20 Grayslake North Boosters are selling Grayslake North Strong t-shirts! GrayslakeStrong2020.itemorder.com until May 4th. Check it out!! $2 from each order will be donated to local food pantries.
4/18/20: Governor JB Pritzker announced on Friday that Remote Learning Days will continue through the end of the school year. This means that we will continue our current eLearning schedule, with no in-person learning for the rest of this semester. While the 2019/2020 school year will not end as we had hoped, everyone at District 127 understands we must stand together to keep our community safe and healthy.
When we talk about our “Portrait of a Graduate” (https://bit.ly/d127pog) we encourage attributes such as creative problem solving, resilience, and civic engagement. These are qualities that we want to nurture in our students, but we must also demonstrate ourselves at D127. We are part of the #GrayslakeStrong community and we are not helpless. The school year isn’t over and creativity loves constraints.
We have announced that we are planning on in-person graduation ceremonies at both of our campuses: Grayslake North: July 23
More details more information will be coming soon on these events. In the coming week, we plan to publish important information regarding the end of the school year, final exams, prom, and athletic and honors awards ceremonies. We trust that everyone understands that this outbreak requires flexibility, as most plans are a bit like trying to hit a moving, invisible target these days. Regardless, we can and will move forward, keeping the needs of our students and their families as our number one focus.
Students, we’re not near you physically but we’re still with you. We will see you soon.

Meal Service and Donation Opportunities
District 127 will provide breakfast and/or lunch for any families in need during our scheduled school closure. The district will host a pick-up station at Grayslake North High School near B162 entrance. Breakfast and lunch will be available for pick up during the hours of 9am and 11am, Monday-Friday, through May 22nd. In addition, if you have any extra non-perishable food supplies or household items that you would like to donate to help in that effort, we would greatly appreciate it.
Seniors!! Don't be so focused on what is happening right now that you lose sight of your future. This is a great opportunity to start or finish your scholarship applications. Check out your 'CCRC of 2020' course on SCHOOLOGY for an updated list of scholarship opportunities, applications and detailed transcript instructions!
We are living through something we may (hopefully) never experience again. This is a great opportunity to create a photo journal / diary of your experiences. Think about it...someday your kids are going to ask you, “My teacher wants me to research the Covid-19 virus and its effect on teenagers. What is she talking about.” You are living through history. Don’t miss the opportunity to journal about what you are experiencing and how you are being affected. This is also a great opportunity to relieve stress and anxiety. Save your journal or writings for future reading. You are going to be thankful you took the time later - trust me.
