Straight from Station

March 12, 2021

Yesterday, Dr. Harris shared a very important update with the community regarding returning to school. He informed the community that the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) released revised public health guidance for schools. At the middle school level, 5 day/week full day attendance for students who have been hybrid learners will begin on Tuesday, March 16th. In order to prepare for this change, we will have an all distance learning school day on Monday, March 15th with asynchronous work pushed out. Please click here to read Mr. Aalf's letter that was sent out yesterday for more details specifically regarding Station Middle School.


All families who chose the Distance Learning model will continue with that model for the remainder of the school year.
