COVID-19 Notification (9/22/20)

Dear Warren CUSD 205 Families and Staff:

This letter is to inform you that an individual(s) at Warren Elementary School has tested positive for COVID-19. We are coordinating our efforts with Jo Daviess County Health Department to promptly identify and monitor individuals who have had recent contact with the COVID-19 positive individual(s) to prevent further spread within our school and community. The health and safety of Warren CUSD 205 students and staff is our highest priority, and we recognize the uncertainty and concern regarding the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We are following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the state and local health departments for best practices and procedures to protect everyone’s health.

To prevent further spread of the disease, Warren CUSD 205 is taking the following steps:

  • Placing individuals who are identified as having prolonged close contact to the COVID-19 case(s) in quarantine for 14 days. Close contacts will also receive a separate notification from the Jo Daviess County Health Department.
  • Ongoing monitoring of students and staff for signs and symptoms of illness and evaluation of illness reports to promptly identify possible outbreaks.
  • Conducting a deep clean and disinfection of the areas impacted by potential exposure to the COVID-19 virus.

We will continue to enforce safe practices to prevent, promptly identify, and respond to potential COVID cases, as follows:

  • Students and staff who are ill with COVID-like symptoms will promptly be placed in a separate supervised area away from others until they can be sent home.
  • Students are required to wear face coverings at all times, as previously directed and per school policy.
  • Staff are required to wear face coverings at all times while in contact with children and other staff in the facility.
  • We are continuously sanitizing high-touch surfaces including door handles, stair rails, sink faucets, etc.
  • We have removed plush toys and other toys that cannot be properly or frequently disinfected.
  • We are teaching students the importance of face coverings, social distancing, and proper handwashing
    • Students are discouraged from sharing personal items, e.g., water bottles.
    • Students are learning new ways to greet each other without touching.
    • Students are reminded to avoid touching their eyes, nose and mouth, and to cover coughs and sneezes.
    • Students will be taught to wash their hands frequently and properly, following CDC guidelines on handwashing.
  • As we receive more information from the Department of Public Health and other entities, we will implement additional recommendations and guidelines.

As always, everyone should monitor their health and stay at home if they develop symptoms. Sick persons should contact their health care provider to determine if testing is needed. Anyone who develops severe symptoms should seek medical care immediately. If your child has had close contact with a known case of COVID-19, keep the child at home and notify your primary healthcare provider, Warren CUSD 205, and your local health department.

We are committed to providing your child and our staff with a safe and healthy environment. Thank you for your understanding and ongoing cooperation with our COVID prevention policies and procedures as we work to help protect your children, your families, and our staff and their families. For any questions or concerns, please contact us at 815-745-2641.

All Meals Free Through December 31, 2020

Dear Warren CUSD 205 Families/Guardians:

We are excited to announce that the USDA has extended free meals to all students through December 31, 2020. This means that Warren CUSD 205 students are eligible for free breakfast and lunch through the end of the calendar year. With that in mind, we will begin providing all of our students the opportunity to participate in breakfast and lunch programs for free whether they are learning in-person or in a remote learning environment. In order to participate, each family will need to register for the program by completing the survey below, which can also be found on our school website. All lunch accounts will be frozen on September 14, 2020 since the meals will be free until December 31, 2020. Any charged meals between September 1, 2020 and today, will be reimbursed. Meals will not be charged throughout this period. Meal sign up for this week will be the same as last week. Next week, we will use the below survey to develop our lunch counts.\

Participation in-person: This will not look any different than it has since returning to in-person learning. Students will be sent with their lunch at the end of the school day. Bus riders will be handed their lunch while getting off the bus each day. Students being picked up on Mary Street or walking home will be delivered their lunch before exiting the building.

Remote Learners: Any student who is remote learning can participate in the meal program. Pick up for the meals will be between 11 AM – Noon daily. Each pick up will include breakfast items and lunch items to cover the days until the next pickup. On Friday, the pickup will include breakfast for the following Monday.

Participation Survey: In order to participate in the free meal program, we need each family to complete the following survey in order to register. If you cannot log online to complete the survey, please call the school and we will sign you up over the phone. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this process.


United States Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue states, “As our nation reopens and people return to work, it remains critical our children continue to receive safe, healthy, and nutritious food. During the COVID-19 pandemic, USDA has provided an unprecedented amount of flexibilities to help schools feed kids through the school meal programs, and today, we are also extending summer meal program flexibilities for as long as we can, legally and financially.”

We encourage you all to participate in this opportunity to feed our kids.
