CHANGE IN PACE BUS SERVICE

Pace announced on August 17th that due to the uncertainty of school schedules and the variety of remote/in-person/hybrid learning modes announced by suburban schools, they are unable to adjust schedules this fall and provide supplemental service for students. Therefore, all trips footnoted as “school days only” in the public timetables are not operating for the Fall 2020 semester. This means that the Pace bus will not stop in front of Regina as it has in past school years.
Please be advised that although “school days only” service will not operate, Regina students will be served by Pace’s regular, mainline service. Pace buses will continue to drop off and pick up Regina students using the Route 422 bus on Lake Ave and Route 421 bus on Wilmette Ave (except for those 421 and 422 trips noted as school days only on the public timetable).
Please see PaceBus.com/Fall2020 for more details about Fall 2020 service and to learn about other Pace COVID-19 policies.  To stay informed about the latest updates on your daughter’s route, please sign up for Pace’s email/text alerts by clicking here. If you have any questions about service to Regina, please contact Pace Customer Relations at 847-364-PACE (7223).

TECHNOLOGY

Incoming students are required to have a laptop (not an iPad) of their choosing. A Chromebook will meet the technology needs for all students, but families may choose whatever laptop and operating system they wish. We recommend a minimum storage space of 256GB, although 512GB would be optimal.

Note that we are phasing out iPads for the Class of 2024.  Classes of 2021-23 may elect to continue using their iPads.

TEXTBOOKS/MATERIALS
