Academic Support Sign-Up

Dear Students:

Our school’s afternoon academic support sessions began August 24.  These sessions offer you the unique opportunity to take advantage of small group tutoring, individualized course assistance, and, when possible, hands-on laboratory experiences.  Each of our departments has developed experiences to help you succeed and achieve a high level of academic success.  We highly encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities that are scheduled Monday through Thursday from 1:15pm to 2:45pm.



Beginning today, all afternoon academic supports will be available virtually through Zoom.  In addition, the following academic supports are available in-person: ESL, Applied Technology, Business, and Family & Consumer Science.



In order to participate in an academic support session, you will need to schedule an appointment. You can view the academic support options and access the sign-up links using this webpage: Afternoon Academic Support.  Once you choose a support option and click on the sign-up link, you will access our Hoffman Estates High School SignupGenius site.  As you complete the sign-up form, you will be asked to answer a series of questions and enter your school-provided email address.  A confirmation email will be sent to you. 



Only students who have a confirmed appointment for afternoon academic support and have successfully completed the school’s Wellness Screening will be allowed to enter the school.  Be prepared to show your successfully completed Wellness Screening as you enter the building through Entrance 1 or 10.



After scheduling an appointment for an in-person academic support session, you will receive an appointment confirmation email which will include a link to our online Wellness Screener.  You must complete the screening at home prior to traveling to school.  The screening result must indicate a “green check mark” or you will not be able to enter the school. If your screening results in a “red X,” you cannot attend the in-person academic support session. Your parents should follow up with your physician, as well as call the school to report the presence of COVID-related symptoms or other risk of exposure revealed through the screening process.  A school representative will follow up with your parents later in the day to determine your readiness to come into the school on a future date.

Additional information about the online wellness screening survey is available by clicking here.



All students who enter the school building will have their body temperature scanned to verify fever-free status. If you have a temperature of 100.4 degrees or above, you will not be able to attend the in-person academic support session and your parents will be contacted to arrange your return home.



If you have an appointment for an in-person academic support, you may provide your own transportation or take a bus.  Mid-day bus routes are available each day that afternoon academic support sessions are offered. Please report to your bus stop no later than 15 minutes after the end of period 4 on both A and B days.

Additionally, a healthy and free snack will be available for all Hoffman Estates High School students who have a scheduled an in-person academic support and entered the building starting today. The snack can only be eaten in designated eating areas and will only be available prior to the 1:15pm academic support start.  Classrooms are not student designated eating areas.

If you have questions about our afternoon academic supports, please contact your Guidance Counselor at 847.755.5630.
