School Reopening Frequently Asked Questions
The Illinois State Board of Education has released a document that will go a long way toward answering critical questions all of us share about what the 2020-2021 school year will look like in terms of in-person learning, scheduling, transportation, wearing masks, social distancing and other measures intended to keep everyone safe and healthy, while also re-engaging students in the learning process. Right now, we don't have all the answers to those questions as this document was released to school districts at the same time it was released to the public. Therefore, we kindly ask for your patience as the district transition planning team thoroughly review this detailed guidance and implement the suggestions into our district reopening plan. As answers to the questions are developed, they will be added to the FAQ's below.
We are aware of the urgent need to communicate to families about what to expect for the upcoming school year.
Please email email@example.com with any questions you may have.
Yes. You would register your child(ren) as you normally would. You would not need to register if you were planning to homeschool your child(ren). Homeschooling is different than at-home remote learning. With homeschooling, there is no instruction or materials provided by the district. Families wanting to homeschool their children are encouraged to register with the Regional Office of Education.
Families will be asked for a firm commitment on Friday, July 31 about whether their child(ren) will attend school in-person or remotely. They will also be asked if they will be able to transport their children to and from school. A lot of information will be coming out prior to the 31st to help parents with their decision.
The in-person students may switch to remote learning at any time. The remote students may return to in-person learning at the end of the quarter.
