Greetings from Mrs. K.


Below is what was sent out by Dr. Heinz last night to all CCSD15 families. I just want to you all to know how much I appreciate the parent support! The communication between parents and classroom teacher continues to be so critical during these challenging times. Our teachers continue to work tirelessly for both In Person and Virtual students, and I know so many of you are working side by side with them as well. We appreciate you! Be safe!

District-Wide Adaptive Pause November 30-December 4

At its November 11 meeting, the Board of Education approved a plan to implement an Adaptive Pause across the District the week after Thanksgiving, implementing fully remote instruction Monday, November 30 through Friday, December 4.

The plan to pause in-person learning November 30-December 4 stems from an anticipated increase in cases shortly after the Thanksgiving holiday. Research suggests that family gatherings are a main driver of COVID-19 spread. Pausing the week after the Thanksgiving holiday would mean infected individuals would become symptomatic while outside of our schools, reducing infectious spread within our buildings.

COVID-19 Guidance Changes

Since the October Board of Education meeting, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) has made several changes to its COVID-19 guidelines.

  • The definition of a COVID-19 outbreak was changed on November 4, from two cases connected by time and place to five cases connected by time and place.

  • Due to elevated community transmission levels, only RT-PCR test results can be accepted for students and staff returning to school after presenting with COVID symptoms. Rapid test results are not accepted forms of documentation.

Enrollment Change Requests

The District received 257 requests to change from virtual to in-person learning, with changes going into effect beginning January 5, 2021. Nearly all of these requests will be accommodated, depending on available space in the classroom. Parents will be notified of the changes no later than December 15.
