2020–2021 Reopening

As we plan for the 2020–2021 school year, decisions regarding how and when to reopen schools are guided by a set of principles that allow for the safe return of students and staff. We will update this page regularly to keep our parents and community informed of the district’s plan for the fall opening. On June 23, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) released guidance for schools on the 2020–2021 school year. This 60-page document was much anticipated and has helped us to frame our decision making for the upcoming school year. As we prepare to reopen our schools, we have considered and will take into consideration in-person versus remote learning, scheduling, transportation, personal protective equipment (PPE), social distancing, and other measures intended to keep everyone safe and healthy. We welcome and appreciate community input and feedback. We look forward to working together as partners as we re-engage our students in the learning process.
