Dear Parents and Community Members:

The Board of Education met in a special meeting on 10/6/20 and has been carefully considering the health, safety and wishes of our students and staff with regards to opening our buildings to a Hybrid Schedule. The Board voted and has directed M-R schools (grades K - 12th) to reopen beginning October 26, 2020.

The first decision your family must make is whether or not you will send your student to school. The pandemic allows us to offer your family to choose IN PERSON or to remain REMOTE. If you choose REMOTE you will experience very little changes in your student’s education.

Families choosing IN PERSON will be assigned an A schedule or a B schedule. Splitting the IN PERSON learning across 2 days allows the District to improve our capacity to implement social distancing guidelines. Details about your student’s schedule will be sent soon however, it is important to note that the Hybrid schedule will be the same as the current Remote Plan hours (approximately 8:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.). Remember, students IN PERSON will still have REMOTE learning responsibilities on the days they are not scheduled to be in the building.

In addition, all staff and students will be required to self-certify prior to entering our buildings. Parents and guardians will send in a daily certification form. This self-certification is mandatory prior to entering our schools or buses (whichever is first). Failure to comply could result in a student being sent home.

Finally, as masks are required by the IDPH our students will be required to wear masks except by instances where a doctor’s note Is provided. The District is asking parents to provide a minimum of 2 clean masks per day for their student however, 5 clean masks are recommended. The District will have extra masks on hand for masks that break or get lost.

Since viruses spread person to person, please keep your child home if they are sick. Sick day guidelines are listed on the following page and you are asked to follow them closely.

Thank you for your patience during this strange time. Our main concern is keeping everyone as safe as possible. We look forward to seeing our students in the hallways again.
