Hurricane Harvey Collection

School Supplies for Hurricane Harvey

Townline and Dual Language schools collected much needed school supplies to send to the Houston School District who were hard hit by Hurricane Harvey.  Well done students and families!  All collected items were sorted and packed up and will be sent with our best wishes.

Brief Notice

This morning there was a suspicious black car we believe to be a Lincoln possibly taking photos of students as they entered school. The car was parked off of school property. Please take extra caution and keep a watchful eye. Inform our Resource Officer Jon Paret or the Vernon Hills Police Department if you see anything out of the ordinary.

New Attendance Phone Number

If you need to call school to report your Townline student absent please call 847-990-4901 and listen for the prompt directing you to the Attendance Line.  Nurses will no longer be receiving attendance calls directly.

Mini Food Event at Lunch

Students at Dual and Townline took the time to learn more about tomatoes thanks to the district’s food provider Arbor Food Services.  As kids got their meals they could stop for a moment and get a quick mini-lesson and fun facts.
