“Due to the uncertainty of the pandemic, the district is currently preparing three plans for the start of the 2020-21 school year in the fall:

  • Plan A: re-open school in the fall as normal with new public health guidelines and protocols
  • Plan B: develop a hybrid which would combine Distance Learning instruction with in person instruction, while following strict guidelines as outlined by the CDC (Center for Disease Control), IDPH (Illinois Department of Public Health), and ISBE (Illinois State Board of Education)
  • Plan C: start the year with all Distance Learning instruction

The district expects the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and the Illinois Department of Health (IDPH) to release guidelines over the next couple of weeks for the reopening of schools in the fall.
