Corona Virus Update – School Closure

At 3:30 pm today Governor J.B. Pritzker informed administration via a teleconference that schools are to be closed starting Tuesday, March 17th through March 30th.

Monday, March 16th will be a normal school day and will be used for teachers to get any needed papers, materials, supplies,  and instructions to students about the e-learning days we will be utilizing. On Tuesday teachers will come in and work on compiling any other materials or content needed to make e-learning happen.

Wednesday, March 18th will then become our first e-learning day and we will continue with e-learning through March 30th. As of now we will plan on students returning to regularly schedule school days on Tuesday, March 31st.

This is still a fluid situation and we will keep you informed as we gather more information.

Coronavirus Information

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Following up from last week’s email, I wanted to let you know that as a school district we are constantly checking the progress of the Coronavirus. The purpose of this contact is to inform you that the school district is preparing and taking the situation seriously. It is not my intention to add stress to the situation our create hysteria; however, I wanted to let you know what has been communicated to school districts.

We have NOT been recommended to close any schools. We have been recommended to follow the same recommendations sent out last week and take extra cleaning and disinfecting precautions. However, we have been encouraged by the Illinois State Board of Education to create plans in case of exposure to the Coronavirus. Part of that plan includes creating e-plans to continue educating students at home if school were to be closed for an extended period of time. An e-learning plan would use technology (if available) to further educate our students.

The reason that I am sharing this information with you is to allow you as much time to prepare your own plan in case we face this situation. In an effort to gather more information and be better prepared, please mark below if you have a home computer and internet. We hope you appreciate our transparency. We do not intend to alarm anyone; instead, we are trying our best to keep all stakeholders informed of the situation.

Please return the form that was sent home with your student or complete the form here: http://bit.ly/205internet to help us gather this information
