Welcome

  • d41strong Dear District 41 Community, (as of 9/15/20)
    As shared at the beginning of the school year, District 41 has been preparing for the transition into in-person learning by the end of the first quarter. 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.
    First Day of In-Person Learning Per Grade Level (tentative)
    October 15
    Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade
    October 19
    Pre-K
    November 2
    6th grade
    November 4
    Grades 3, 4, 5, 7, 8

    I would like to thank our Glen Ellyn Education Association (GEEA) partners for working through this plan with us and supporting the need to meet our target deadline for students in grades 3-8 while exceeding our target deadline for our youngest learners. I would also like to thank our partners for advocating for a more personalized process for our 6th graders to help them acclimate to Hadley. It is important for our community to know that the Board of Education and administration has maintained a commitment to make this shift a reality while maintaining a commitment to continuous improvements in our full remote model.


    It is my sincere hope that we can focus on moving forward and prioritizing the work that needs to happen over the coming weeks. Our ability to return to in-person instruction and maintain in-person instruction will take a commitment on everyone's part. We remind everyone that there are factors that impact our ability to open our schools for in-person learning and most importantly to stay open. The safety of everyone remains our priority and our obligation.

    Thank you for your cooperation, patience and responsiveness as we work through this transition to in-person learning.

    Sincerely,
    Dr. Melissa Kaczkowski
    Superintendent
