This is a mandatory attendance day for freshmen!
On New Student Day, Lemont High School's Student Services Department will host all new transfer students. More information will be forthcoming for sophomores, juniors or seniors who are transferring to Lemont High School for the 2023-24 school year.
The Student Services Chair and Lemont High School counselors provide assistance to students as they strive to reach their individual goals, meeting with them periodically to help them develop and implement a career plan. Counselors are available to assist students and parents/guardians in educational planning and career decisions. A student's counselor is determined by his or her last name.
Lemont High School students arrive at and depart from campus daily in a variety of ways, including bus transportation, personal vehicles, and by parent/guardian drop-off.
Students are eligible for general education bus transportation if they live 1.5 miles or more from Lemont High School. School administrators have assigned bus stops to students who are eligible for general education bus transportation. This information is available under the "Busing" tab in Skyward Family Access.
Within Skyward's Online Registration Module, all parents/guardians will be asked to complete a Transportation Survey for the 2023-24 school year. All parents/guardians must complete this survey.
Limited parking is available on campus for Lemont High School juniors and seniors. In order to apply for a parking permit, students must submit a completed application. All student drivers must have a valid driver's license and current auto insurance.
All of a student’s fees from the current and previous years must be paid in full for the student to be eligible to receive a parking permit. More information on parking permit applications is available from the Transportation page.

In order to ensure student safety and diminish traffic congestion, parents/guardians who drop off or pick up their students are asked to adhere to a set of guidelines, which also are available on the Transportation page.
Lemont High School students are expected to dress and groom themselves in an appropriate manner. The intent of the school’s Dress and Appearance Guidelines is to promote a good learning environment without imposing undue restriction upon each individual’s freedom. The primary responsibility for student dress rests with parents/guardians and students, as long as such dress and grooming does not present a health or safety hazard or disrupt the educational process. The school hopes students’ decisions regarding dress and appearance will be governed by what the students and their parents/guardians personally know to be reasonable and appropriate for the school setting. Modesty always is appropriate.
Students violating dress and appearance guidelines will be given an opportunity to correct the violation. The Dean or a designee will address any violation. Students may be required to return home to correct violations. When a student’s appearance disrupts the educational process, creates unnecessary attention or infringes upon the rights of others, the student may be subject to disciplinary action. In extreme cases or when a student chooses not to cooperate in correcting the situation, he/she may be subject to further disciplinary action. Students who repeatedly violate these standards may be suspended. Health and safety standards will be maintained at all times for the protection of students and property.
Lemont High School recognizes the important role extra-curricular activities play in the development of student values. All students are encouraged to participate in the school’s extra-curricular program. While extra-curricular activities enhance the educational experience for each student, a student’s first responsibility is to be successful in the classroom.
Extra-curricular opportunities are available to each student. Any student who chooses to participate in an extra-curricular activity of any type is held accountable for his/her performance in the classroom. Additionally, all of a student’s fees - including any extra-curricular activity participation fees - must be paid by the designated date in order for him/her to participate in most activities. Below, please find some important links concerning extra-curricular activities.
Includes a list of non-athletic extra-curricular activities the school offers, names and contact information for activity sponsors, and the date rosters are set for each activity.
Includes a list of sports the school offers, names and contact information for varsity coaches, and the date practice begins for each sport.
Includes information about the implementation, billing and processing of the fees. A schedule of when fees are due for each extra-curricular activity is included in the categories on the right side of the page. Please note that all of a student’s fees – including academic and extra-curricular fees, both from the current year and previous years – must be paid in full for the student to be eligible to participate in an extra-curricular activity.
Please visit the Athletics Registration page for information on registering for athletics. Please visit the Activities Registration page for information on registering for activities.
Parents/guardians with questions about extra-curricular activities should contact Athletics/Activities Administrative Assistant Deb Finnegan at (630) 243-3207, or by clicking on her name to send her a message via email.

The Band Parents Association engages in several fundraising activities each year.
Throughout the school year, Lemont High School publicizes the accomplishments of its students and staff, and in doing so, utilizes information pertaining to the student, including his/her name and photo, and his/her individual work, among other information. Reasons for publicity include, but are not limited to: academic awards, honors, and participation in school-sponsored activities and organizations (including athletics). This publicity can come in several forms, including placements on the school's website or social media.
Parents/guardians who DO NOT wish to have their student’s name or information used for publicity purposes may download the Student Information for Publicity Purposes form and return it to Director of School and Community Relations Tony Hamilton no later than Friday, September 1. A record of students whose information is not to be used for any publicity purpose will be maintained.
Parents/guardians should ONLY return the form if they DO NOT wish for the school to publicize their students' academic and/or extra-curricular accomplishments during the school year.
When requested, Lemont High School provides directory information for its students to outside entities, including military recruiters and postsecondary educational institutions. The school must provide this information, unless a student's parent/guardian requests that it not be disclosed. Parents/guardians who do not want military recruiters and/or institutions of higher learning to be given their students' directory information should contact Counseling Secretary/Registrar Colleen Amberg by calling (630) 243-3218, or via email by clicking on her name.
