Congratulations to the LHS Athletes of the Week...
On October 13, Columbus Day (a non-student attendance day), the process involving the demolition of the Brainerd building will enter its next phase.
As the abatement phase comes to fruition, the next phase involves the erection of the protective demolition fence that will be placed around the building. This fence will be erected prior to the physical demolition of the building.
Due to the size and location of this protective fencing, parking at Brainerd will be limited to approximately 40 spaces, near the athletic field only.
Because of this decrease in this parking area, students who park there should begin the process of considering alternates to parking at Brainerd. Some alternatives might include but may not be limited to the following:
- Parking at Dymond (a first come first free parking area) which has 38 student spaces.
- Car pooling with seniors who have an LHS parking sticker to park on campus, with parent/guardian permission.
- Riding one of the D128 paid for school buses (applies to any LHS student living 1.5 miles from the LHS campus).
- Being dropped off/picked up at LHS by other parent/guardian approved drivers.
Congratulations to Jessica Lovinger and Simone Mikaelian as they both advanced to the IHSA State Finals this week. They both shot an 81 at the Sectional that was held on both Monday and Tuesday. Good luck to both as they will play at Hickory Point Golf Club in Decatur.
Congratulations to the October students of the month.

LHS and VHHS Receive Silver and Gold Medals in 2014 Best High Schools Rankings.
U.S.News & World Report released its 2014 Best High Schools rankings this week. Once again, Vernon Hills High School and Libertyville High Schools received impressive rankings, receiving a gold medal and silver medal respectively. In the national rankings, 500 high schools earned gold medals, 1,519 took home silver and 2,688 were awarded bronze.
The U.S. News rankings include data on more than 19,400 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia. Schools were awarded gold, silver or bronze medals based on their performance on state assessments and how well they prepare students for college.
For 2014, District 128's high schools were ranked as follows:
National Rank -- 457 (Gold Medal)
State Rank -- 17
STEM -- 80
National Rank -- 609 (Silver Medal)
State Rank -- 25
It is worth noting that by taking the 16 charter schools and 18 magnet schools out of the rankings and comparing VHHS and LHS only to Illinois public schools, the schools rank 12th and 20th among the 674 Illinois public high schools.
In addition to its impressive state and national ranking, VHHS was also ranked 80th among the nation’s top STEM schools. U.S. News looked at the top 500 public high schools – those that earned a gold medal in our Best High Schools rankings – to identify the best in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.
The Best High Schools rankings, which are available online only, are produced in conjunction with the American Institutes for Research, one of the largest behavioral and social science research organizations in the world.
