ROLLING RE-ENTRY PLAN UPDATE

This update was shared by Dr. Heinz regarding CCSD15's rolling re-entry plan:


New restrictive guidance issued from the Illinois Department of Public Health, paired with several positive COVID-19 cases among our own staff following new teacher orientation one week ago, have unfortunately made it clear that we must delay our re-entry to in-person instruction at this time.



Specifically, our starting date for rolling re-entry will be delayed until Monday, September 21 and be implemented on a modified schedule.


Monday, September 21: Kindergarten and K-8 self-contained special education programs

  • CLA: ACES, Multiple Needs (MN), Early Childhood SIP: Half-day only (9:00-11:30 a.m.); transition to a full- or extended-day starting on Tuesday, October 13

Monday, September 28: Grades 1-2 and self-contained early childhood

Monday, October 5: Grades 3-4

Tuesday, October 13: Grades 5-8 and ECDEC/blended early childhood (junior high in hybrid model)

** We look forward to welcoming all of our in-person bilingual self-contained students back to our classrooms at the same time their grade level peers are scheduled to return.

Parent Orientation

Parent Orientation is coming up this week on Wednesday, August 26, 2020. It will be virtual. If your child has a virtual teacher whose home school is not Lincoln, the teacher may have a different Parent Orientation date. The teacher will make sure you have the correct date and time and will share a Google Meet link with you. There will also be a Lincoln schedule document shared early in the week with all the teachers' names, dates/times of orientations and Google Meet Links. Ms. Pape and Mrs. Knoeppel will be at Lincoln on the night of Parent Orientation in case you need assistance with the Google Meet link to access the meetings. If parents cannot attend the Google Meeting, please reach out to the teacher to get the information.

Grades 4, 5, 6: Wednesday, August 26: 6:30 - 7:15 pm

Grades K, 1, 2, 3: Wednesday, Augusst 26: 7:30 - 8:15 pm
