Davis Richmond E-News
December 18, 2020
From the Davis Richmond Staff for all of the kindnesses shown and given during the holiday season. It is our greatest pleasure to partner with you in your child’s education. We wish all of our Davis/Richmond families a healthy and happy holiday season.
HOLIDAY OFFICE HOURS
Our offices may have reduced schedules during winter break. If in need of office assistance between December 21 - January 1 please call your child’s school to set up an appointment. We will re-open normal hours on Monday, January 4th. We look forward to welcoming our students and families back on Tuesday, January 5th.
HEALTH OFFICE CONNECTION
If you have someone in the household with symptoms that could be related to COVID (fever of 100.4 or higher, new onset of moderate to severe headache shortness of breath, new cough, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain from unknown cause, new congestion/runny nose, new loss of sense of taste or smell, nausea, fatigue from unknown cause, muscle or body aches) keep all children in the district home, even if they are feeling well, until a clearance note is provided to return to school (see chart).
If you pick up one child from school with any symptoms related to COVID, you must pick up their siblings as well. If you work in the district and you or your child goes home sick with these symptoms, all family members in D303 must go home until the individual with symptoms is cleared. Other family members may be cleared if the individual with symptoms has a diagnosis other than COVID. Your school nurses can help you in determining your options for the symptomatic child and the siblings to return to school.
Thank you for your cooperation in helping us mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

The letter that you will be receiving during Winter Break referenced a blue and green bar, which does not show up in black and white printing. The letter was updated to refer to those two lines by their name and not as colors.
If you would like to access your child's i-Ready diagnostic information in the i-ready student portal as well as additional family resources, please watch the video below.
The Illinois Department of Public Health has the following advisory regarding travel safety at this time. Travel increases your chances of getting infected and spreading COVID 19. When you must travel, away from your local community, keep informed about the current COVID-19 status of a potential destination and keep your family safe by avoiding travel to places of higher risk. Travel restrictions can change, so please recheck the site as needed.
When you do travel, practice the 3 W’s every time you are away from home and in close proximity to other groups of people. Wear a face covering. Wash your hands with soap and water. Watch your physical distance, staying at least 6 feet from others.
