A Note from Mr. Harris
August 4, 2021
Wow, I cannot believe students will be retuning to school in a few weeks. I hope everyone has been having a wonderful summer and that the students are as excited as we are to return to Willow Bend for another great year.
As you have probably heard, the information coming from the Illinois health department is evolving and the guidelines related to COVID continue to change. I want all of you to know that our number one priority is to keep students safe and in school as much as possible. To that end, we will try as best as we can to go beyond the guidelines (when space permits) so our students stay safe and do not need to quarantine from school because they are considered a "close contact" while they are in the school.
I will share the latest information on all of our safety precautions as we get closer to the start of the school year when information should be more set. There are however, a few guidelines (lunch/recess and entrance and exit procedures) that I feel comfortable sharing with you now.
Please note that changes in our safety guidelines will change if State health guidelines change.
If you have any questions, please contact the school at 847-963-7300.
