On Wednesday, February 21, approximately 75 students from Fremd High School participated in a peaceful student-organized walkout in support and solidarity with the students in Parkland, Fla., and safety in our schools. Students participating in the demonstration walked outside the school building and gathered on the school campus for nearly 30 minutes.
Throughout the demonstration, school and district officials worked with members of the Palatine Police Department to ensure the safety of all students involved. Following the rally, students returned to their regularly scheduled classes, with minimum disruption to the school day.
On March 6, Fremd will be administering the Illinois Youth Survey (IYS) to all sophomores and seniors during their PE period.
A link with more information about the IYS is here.
If you would like to request that your student not participate, please complete this form and return it to Student Services Reception Desk by Monday, March 5 at 3pm.
Moving forward, a student’s first semester parking permit tag number needs to correspond with the license plate registered with the school. If the first semester permit number and the license plate the school has on file do not match, a student could receive a parking ticket from the Palatine Police Department.
Additionally, the Palatine Police Department will not be issuing any warnings for vehicles that do not have the proper first semester parking permit displayed. Please make sure your student’s first semester permit is displayed at all times or they could be subject to a parking ticket from the Palatine Police Department.
Any student found to be misusing their parking pass privileges–making duplicates, allowing a friend to use the pass, selling the pass to another student–may be subject to a parking pass suspension or revocation. Fraudulent parking passes, including forgeries and parking passes bought on the secondary market, will be confiscated and may be treated as a theft of service.
