COVID-19 Update March 31 & Grading Policy

Dear Parents and Community Members:

I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. Today, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker announced that remote learning in Illinois will be extended through April 30 in order to slow down the spread of COVID-19. Currently, we will plan to return to in-person instruction on Friday, May 1. This is still a very fluid situation, and we will continue to keep you updated. We will recognize our Spring Break, and there will be no remote learning April 9 – 13.

During this time, on-site learning will remain suspended but our schools’ commitment to learning and education will remain open and learning will continue for all students – just through a different format.

While it is not ideal, we want to assure you that at Warren CUSD 205, our teachers and staff are fully engaged and willing to take on this new challenge and push forward with remote learning, engaging with students and continuing with our food distribution program.

I know this is not the school year that any of us imagined, but I want to thank you for your patience and understanding
as we have dealt with this unprecedented situation together.

As a recap, here are the three priorities for our leadership and planning moving forward:

  • Priority 1 – Feed and care for the extended safety, health, and welfare of students, families, non-student children, staff, and community at large.
  • Priority 2 – Communicate clearly; share coherent, organized and controlled messages with your staff, students and community.
  • Priority 3 – Provide for the continuity of learning in Illinois

It’s important we continue to work together and support our students. This is a challenging time for all of us. I thank all of you for doing your part as we are all in this together. Students and parents, we are here for you to assist in anyway throughout challenging times. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need any assistance or simply need someone to talk to. Thank you for your support and cooperation. Go Warriors!

Sincerely,
Shawn Teske
Warren CUSD 205
