Parent Information

To the parent(s)/guardian(s) of the HEHS graduating class of 2018:

During the second week of November your son/daughter will receive two very important documents pertaining to graduation.

The first document is in regards to how the name of your son or daughter will appear and be spelled on their Hoffman Estates High School Diploma. The bottom half of the letter has their name printed on it as it appears in our system. If the spelling is correct, and the full name is how you and your son/daughter wish it to appear on the diploma, then no action needs to be taken on your behalf. However, if a change is necessary, please return the corrected form to the Student Services office by November 15th, 2017. Further information regarding this is included on the form.

The second document is from Jostens, the company who provides us with our graduation products. This document is an information packet that includes ordering instructions for graduation announcements and memorabilia, as well as the cap and gown. Included within this packet is an order form. On this order form, you have the ability to order graduation announcements, memorabilia, and provide us with cap and gown measurements for your child. Please note that you are not obligated to order graduation announcements and memorabilia. However, it is required that you complete the cap and gown measurement information included in section one of the form for your son or daughter. Students will need to return the form to school on cap and gown measurement day, Wednesday, November 15th.
