No School on Sept. 7 / SIP Day on Sept. 11

In honor of Labor Day all District 41 schools are closed on Monday, September 7, 2020.

Also, our first remote School Improvement Days (SIP) day will be held on Friday, September 11. While we are in remote, the SIP day will work a little differently. For September’s SIP day students will follow their morning schedule. Students will only attend the classes that they have from 8:30-11:00 a.m. and will have their afternoon off. In October, the students will attend only their afternoon classes. This means that students will not have morning classes on October 30th but instead will attend their afternoon classes from 1:00-3:30pm. We will continue this model rotating each month. Principals will continue to communicate this each month to parents so they are aware of when instruction is taking place on SIP days.

Here are the SIP Day dates through Winter Break:
