    Senior Prom

     May 14th & May 15th 

    (4/27/2021) We are excited to announce the 2021 Elgin High School Senior Prom: Celestial Skies - which will take place on Friday, May 14th and Saturday, May 15th, from 6-10 PM. Tickets will go on sale this week, starting April 27th - and will be $25 per senior. Students may only attend one of the dates, and we will only be selling 200 tickets total (100 per day). Once we sell out, there will not be any other opportunities to purchase tickets/attend prom, so please do not wait until the last minute - or you might miss out! 

    In-person students are able to purchase tickets during their lunch/study hall hours from the Treasurer's Office. Distance students can either call the EHS Treasurer (847-888-5100 x.5103) to purchase tickets via credit card, OR tickets will be sold after school on Mondays from 3-5 PM, Wednesdays from 5-6 PM, and Fridays from 3-5PM, and Saturday, May 8th from 8AM-noon (enter through Door 7). To keep things equitable, eighty tickets will be reserved for distance learners to purchase until May 8th - after the 8th these reserved tickets will be released to ANY senior (if there are any left). Again, we expect to sell out, so don't wait to purchase your tickets! 
     
    Due to COVID-19, we have taken every precaution to ensure the safety of our students and staff. Prom will only be open to Senior EHS students - no underclassmen/non-EHS guests will be allowed. Only 50 students will be allowed in each of our prom stations at any given time, and there will not be food at the event (students are encouraged to eat before/after prom). Students will not be allowed re-entry after leaving Prom. 
     
    PLEASE NOTE: students may be subject to random breathalyzers, and by purchasing a ticket, they are agreeing to both the breathalyzer and a bag/jacket search. Student IDs are required for entry into prom. Social distancing will be encouraged throughout the evening, and students will be required to wear a mask for the entirety of the event. These are rules that the District has set forth and cannot be changed. 
     
    If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Junior Class Sponsors Ms. Zahora (meaganzahora@u-46.org) and Ms. Kling (jessicakling@u-46.org).

    Drive-in Graduation Ceremony for the Class of 2021

    Saturday, May 29, 2021 11:00am https://www.u-46.org/classof2021

    (4/23/2021) We are thrilled to announce that the NOW Arena has informed us that we are able to host a limited in-person graduation inside the arena! Of course, all participants and guests are still required to follow all COVID-19 mitigation strategies and safety protocols, including masks and social distancing, in alignment with current health department guidelines.  If health department guidelines change due to increased COVID-19 cases, we may need to return to the drive-in model. Thus, it is important for us to continue to follow health guidance and also encourage vaccines for anyone over the age of 16.

    We know that graduation is an important milestone and want to encourage all seniors to participate; however if a senior is required to quarantine on May 29 as a result of having COVID symptoms, receiving a positive COVID test result, or being identified as a close contact of a confirmed or suspected positive case, they will not be permitted to participate in the graduation ceremony.

    Our principals will continue to offer regular updates between now and graduation day on May 29th, including rehearsal and ticket information. If you have any questions, we invite you to reach out to us via our “Class of 2021” Tab on Let’s Talk.  We’re excited to see our students walk the stage at the NOW Arena once again this year! 

    Finally, we ask that seniors complete the Google Form questionnaire that was sent to their school emails. The form will help us update and enhance school yearbooks and graduation slideshows that will be broadcast at each ceremony. Share your accomplishments and achievements as part of the class of 2021; you can even submit your own photo! Dream Academy students should enter information at the link of their home school.
