At the September 14 Board of Education meeting, a plan to shift to our Blended AM/PM learning model was presented and supported by the Board. We are now planning on bringing the primary grades back for our blended model starting in October. Prioritizing the students who have the hardest time navigating remote learning is something that the current Illinois Department of Public Health framework and metrics supports.The plan remains to shift to the blended model for all students in November after the first quarter of the school year. It is important to note that the plan is based on the status of DuPage County COVID-19 metrics.

An email with many more details about the plan and a commitment form was sent to parents/guardians on Tuesday, September 15. The form includes all of the information you will need to make a decision for each of your children. The form was due Friday, September 18. If you still need to complete the form please contact your school.
