Dear New Trier Families,

We would like to inform you that registration for the Fall Sports Season (Girls/Boys Cross Country, Girls/Boys Golf, Girls Swimming & Diving, Girls Tennis, and Girls/Boys Rowing) will open at 9 a.m. on Friday, July 31st . All registration information can be found on the New Trier Athletic website ( https://newtrierhs-ar.rschooltoday.com/ ). Additionally, please check each team's respective webpage for detailed tryout information, including start dates and locations.

Please Note: In accordance with the Cook County Department of Public Health, New Trier High School has implemented a 14-day quarantine for students traveling (more than 24 hours) from the following states:
Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Nevada, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas, Idaho, Arkansas, California, Missouri, North Carolina, Utah, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska

Upon completion of the required 14-day quarantine, students may still attend tryouts for boys and girls cross country, and girls swimming and diving.

Tennis for the upcoming season.

Thanks for your patience and understanding during this time,

Student Activities
We believe in Student Activities as a means to support our students and enhance their overall experience at New Trier. As such, we are committed to offering opportunities for all students to stay engaged and involved next year, whether that be in a traditional setting, socially distanced, or remotely connected. To prepare for any of these scenarios, we are working on creative ways to help students learn about, and participate in, the wide variety of clubs and activities that are available. This includes advancing our online presence as well as collaborating with club sponsors and student leaders to create a unique Club Fair experience next fall.

Of course, we acknowledge that certain clubs may look a bit different next year as health and safety protocol evolves. Please continue to refer to the Student Activities homepage throughout the year for the most up-to-date offerings and information. In the meantime, you can watch this short video overview of the many extracurricular offerings from across all programs as well as a special message to the class of 2024 from the Student Council officers. We hope that you are enjoying your summer and can't wait to see all Trevians again next year!

Performing Arts
New Trier's arts program is a cornerstone of the school's whole-child approach to learning and exploring. The Performing Arts Division is committed to offering students the opportunity to participate in extracurricular dance, music, theatre, and performing arts performances and events to the greatest extent possible during the 2020-2021 school year regardless of whether students are learning in school, at home, or a combination of both. We have been working on creative solutions to address any of these scenarios and to keep students involved. Please refer to the Performing Arts home page throughout the school year for the most updated information about performances, rehearsals, and other issues that may need to be fluid given the changing circumstances of state health guidance
