Reminder: No School Monday, October 11, 2021 (Columbus Day)
10/3/2021 Dear Parents, We have seen an uptick of positive COVID cases (6) is the last couple of days. The cases are isolated to the 4th grade only. In order to try and contain the spread, we have made the decision to have all of fourth grade quarantine as a close contact and switch to remote. For those of you with students in 4th grade, they will be home beginning Monday, October 4th and will return on Tuesday, October 12th, following the IDPH guidelines for a 10 day quarantine period. We will be getting chrome books delivered and get a remote platform up for you this week, by Wednesday. If you have siblings of a 4th grade student, they are not considered a close contact at this time. Therefore, they will be able to attend in person. We wanted to make sure everyone in the district is aware of what the current situation is. Obviously, COVID is not going away anytime soon and it is in our community. Please remember to remain vigilant in watching for symptoms (fever, headaches, sore throat, cough, etc) both with yourself and with your children. Also please remember to wear your masks and to social distance as much as possible. Thank you in advance for your understanding as we all adjust to the continually changing landscape of this pandemic. Thank You, Matt Stines
Seventh Graders thought of ways to bring generations together this week.
