Nominate HMS Staff for “Above the Line”


Final Deadline – School Supplies

The PTO provides conveniently packaged school supplies as a courtesy to our parents.

Online ordering closes on June 30, 2015. Once the deadline passes, you may still order but will be subject to a 10% upcharge.

Order by going to this link  and enter the school code HIN022. You may also order some items for specialty classes (such as a language) on an “a la carte” basis during the same transaction.

All supplies will be delivered to your home, except the “bulk” supplies such as Kleenex and wipes, which will be delivered to the school and distributed directly to the classrooms.

If you choose to purchase supplies on your own, all supply lists are posted on the HMS PTO website under School and District Links.

Questions should be directed to

Purchasing Books for High School

The Hinsdale Central PTO will be offering its “Book Swap” program again this year beginning July 1st. The “Book Swap” is an online application that connects Hinsdale Central families looking to buy and sell books required for Hinsdale Central classes. The PTO will provide more details to you about this application once your student’s 2015-2016 class schedule is released and the required books for each course are published. Whether you choose to use the PTO’s “Book SWAP”, the Follett Virtual Bookstore (found under “Quick Links” on the HCHS website), or a discount text book retailer, it is best to wait for the final required book list for each class to ensure you are purchasing the correct books and editions. Please direct any questions to
