A Message from Superintendent Dr. Shawn Olson ~ 3-19-2021

Fourth Quarter Update

Following updated guidelines released last week by ISBE and IDPH, our building staff continues to prepare for the on-site return of the majority of our students on Wednesday, April 7. Fourth quarter schedules and transportation information will be available for families through their Infinite Campus Parent Portal on Monday, March 29. Please call your school office with any questions.

As we progress through this year, we believe the effectiveness of proper mask-wearing, practicing good hand hygiene, social distancing when possible, and increased cleaning protocols can be seen in the very low numbers of positive cases and close contacts reported on our COVID-19 dashboard. We appreciate your efforts! Thank you for your continued cooperation and support.

Enjoy Spring Break!


Dr. Shawn Olson

Does Your Student Want Milk with Lunch?

Updated Quarantine Protocols for International Travel

Students and staff who have traveled outside of the country must quarantine for ten days before returning to school. The quarantine can be shortened to seven days if the staff member or student receives a negative PCR Covid-19 test after day five. Rapid tests will not be accepted. If the state department requires a longer quarantine due to the specific destination, that quarantine will be enforced.
