Feel free to contact Brian Kurz at the district office with questions. 217-936-2111.
**The dates in this article are accurate for the end of the school year. There was an error in the calendar that was sent out earlier this year. Thanks to those of you who have inquired about this. We apologize for the confusion.***
It is the first week of February and it has already been a very long winter. Neither the groundhog or Farmer’s Almanac give us reason to believe the end is in sight. We have used up all 7 of our emergency days due to snow and extreme weather. Future cancellations (like Thursday) will be considered “Act of God” days. We will not make those days up. The final day for students to attend school this year will be Tuesday, June 3rd. Staff will have the final day of the year on Wednesday, June 4th.
Many of our elementary students planned to celebrate the 100th day of school this week. Due to missing three days, the 100th day of school will be Monday, February 10th.
We recognize cancelling school creates a hardship on many families. It also makes it more challenging to ensure students are learning at their best. That is taken into consideration when making these decisions. We only cancel school when we feel it is in the best interest of students and staff. Thank you for your patience as we work together for our students.
