D140 Update - June 26, 2020


Dear D140 families and staff,

I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. Earlier this week, the Illinois State Board of Education released guidance for schools on the 2020-21 school year. 

This 60-page document has been much anticipated and will go a long way toward answering critical questions all of us share about what the 2020-21 school year will look like in terms of in-person learning, scheduling, transportation, wearing masks, social distancing, and other measures intended to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Right now, we don’t have all the answers to those questions as this document was released to school districts at the same time it was released to the public. Therefore, we kindly ask for your patience as our staff thoroughly reviews this detailed guidance and implements the suggestions into our district’s own transition plan.

Our district’s Reopening Task Force committee has been discussing options and will be seeking input from our school communities through surveys and meetings in the upcoming weeks. Please make sure the contact information you provided at registration is correct in your Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Click here to log in to your Infinite Campus Parent Portal. If you have yet to register, please check your email for your portal activation information or contact your school office for help. Communication will be critical in the upcoming weeks, and we want to make sure that we can provide you with information and updates you need to start the 2020-21 school year. 

Thank you again for your patience, understanding, and flexibility as we work together to navigate a situation that none of us could have imagined.

I will be in touch soon. In the meantime, stay safe and enjoy your summer.

Dr. Shawn M. Olson
