Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced this afternoon that in-person instruction will be suspended for the rest of the 2019-20 school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and remote learning will continue.

If you are unclear about what remote learning is and its expectations, you can read about that in a previous communication sent out by Dr. Nicolas D. Wade, Superintendent of Schools, here.

In addition, an FAQ for parents on remote learning can be found here, and all other information and updates regarding the District's learning and operations during the pandemic can be found here.

As more information becomes both substantive and available, the District will continue to communicate with all of its stakeholders.

The District is very much appreciative of the support, patience and understanding it has been given by students, parents and community members during these challenging times.
