What will school look like?
Now that the ISBE guidance document has been provided, there are components that are required for all public school districts in Illinois. Masks are required for all students and staff who are attending in person instruction and social distancing of 6 feet to the greatest extent possible. Governor Pritzker shared that the State of Illinois will be providing a cloth mask for every student in Illinois. We do not have any additional information about this yet. Parents/Guardians will be expected to provide a cloth mask for their child/children on a daily basis if they are participating in in-person instruction. District 41 will maintain an inventory of disposable masks in the event that your child’s mask becomes unwearable during the day. Children will be required to have a mask on prior to boarding the school bus.
Is a full remote model an option?
In District 41, we will make a fully remote learning opportunity available to students who:
- Have a verified medical or mental health condition that prevents them from attending
- All other requests for full remote learning will be honored as well.
Because of the fluid nature of the pandemic, there may be additional circumstances under which a parent would request a fully remote learning opportunity that have not been identified above.
