Minutes from the June meeting are available on the HPHS Wolters Field Website. We are currently scheduling the Fall meeting and will make all the information available on the website.

Wolters Field Issues
If there are any issues regarding Wolters Field, please contact WoltersFieldIssues@dist113.org. You will receive a response within 24-48 standard business hours. District 113 is only able to address issues directly involving Wolters Field and not the surrounding area. If this is an issue regarding parking, traffic outside of Wolter's Field, or any matter related to an emergency, please contact the Highland Park Police Department.

Additional Updates  
Fifteen buses have been equipped with lower decibel back-up beepers and will be tested during the first months of the school year. We targeted buses that are the primary vehicles for the early bird routes. Back-up beepers are required on school buses for the safety of the passengers, drivers, and passers-by.

New signs outlining Ordinance No. 81-13 and respective fines will be installed prior to the start of the school year. Barricades have been purchased to improve the regulation of traffic on Athletic Drive.

Invitation to the first football game of the season
We would like to invite you to our first home football game on Friday, August 31 at 7 PM. The Highland Park Giants will compete against the Lakes High School Eagles. Admission to the game will be free for our neighbors. Please print this email or show the email on your mobile device to gain entry.
