The continued health and safety of the entire District 123 learning community remains our top priority. This page will provide a collection of Resources, Plans, and Metrics to the District 123 community has we continue to navigate this global pandemic.
Beginning Monday, November 30, 2020 all District 123 students will shift to Full Remote Learning.
There will be NO SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS on November 30 & December 1. These days will be used as Emergency Remote Learning Planning days to provide time for staff preparation and collaboration for the shift to full remote learning. The previously scheduled Late Start on December 2 will be removed from our calendar.
STUDENTS WILL BEGIN the Full Remote Learning Program on Wednesday, December 2 at 8:30am. Students will continue to follow their current schedules and maintain their current teacher assignments. Your school principal and child’s teacher will send out additional information about this temporary shift by Tuesday, December 1.
We are currently anticipating a return to in-person hybrid instruction on January 19, 2021.
The District 123 school community has been fully immersed in reopening collaborations and planning since May 2020. At the July 21, 2020 District 123 Committee of the Whole Meeting, administration presented the “Together Again – Return to School Plan” to the Board of Education. The plan offers the students, staff, and families of District 123 the safest and most effective in-person re-entry to the 2020-2021 school year and has incorporated the entire community’s voice as a foundational element. The primary goals of the plan are to maintain:
1. The health and safety of all students and staff
2. A “slow and smart” approach for the return of all students
3. Contingencies for various shifts in the public health landscape
4. Flexibility based on guidance from the Illinois State Board of Education, Illinois Department of Public Health and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention
5. Multiple instructional options to all District 123 families
Any questions or concerns can be sent to WeGotThis@d123.org
Additionally, Superintendent Dr. Paul Enderle shared the plan with the community on July 22, 2020 during the Facebook “Lunchtime Live.” The recording of the presentation can be found below.
