Dear Families and Staff:
As we proceed with our remote learning plan, Illini Central schools continue to monitor the health and welfare of our staff and students. As you know, our community continues to see an increase in the number of individuals who test positive for COVID-19. During the past week, we have had multiple positive cases reported to our staff from individuals from one or more of our schools. As of today, we are aware of six positive cases from staff and/or students. We wish all those affected as speedy recovery.
Illini Central schools will continue operating as follows:
Illini Central Grade, Middle, and High Schools will remain in remote learning through Friday, January 15, 2021. Students will return to in-person learning on Tuesday, January 19, 2021.
Illini Central Pre-K program will begin full remote learning beginning Monday, November 30, 2020 through Friday, January 15, 2021. Students will return to in-person learning on Tuesday, January 19, 2021. The Pre-K program will continue with in-person learning through Wednesday, November 25, 2020.
Those students who receive special education services and are designated to attend school will continue to do so. These in-person services will continue based on the following:
Availability of teachers to provide services;
Availability of students;
Evaluation of the number of positive cases within the community;
We encourage you to please keep us informed of any positive COVID-19 cases that involve your child. While we respect the privacy of your family, it will help us to track the spread of the virus within our school community. That information will inform our decisions to re-open school as planned on Tuesday, January 19, 2021. Please know that any information you share will be kept confidential and shared only with those staff who need to know.
We ask that you please share this information with our nursing staff. Please contact the school at 217-482-5180 or email Tonya Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kendra Kelly at email@example.com.
For any questions or concerns, please contact us at 217-482-5180
Mr. Mike Ward
