District 58 will reopen schools beginning Oct. 20 with a Hybrid Plan and a Full Remote option for students.
The goal in moving to the next phase is to provide robust instruction, both onsite (in-person) and offsite (called Hybrid Plan), and an equally robust Full Remote plan. In providing these two options the District would like to minimize disruptions for students and families and at the same time ensure that class sizes are small in order to accomplish social distancing needs. This next phase of learning will remain consistent whether the region returns to all remote (due to moving back to Phase 3 of Restore Illinois) or remain in Phase 4 of the Governor’s Plan.
The District is excited to welcome back students and have been working hard every day for this opportunity. The experiences with remote learning, the success of Transition Days and experience with having students with special services onsite have provided a strong foundation to move to the next phase.
After thoroughly reviewing this plan, families will need to complete a commitment form selecting their choice of an instructional option for their child(ren). Please complete the PowerSchool Parent Portal commitment form for the Hybrid Model or Full Remote as well as your student’s need for bus transportation. If you have questions regarding your decision, please reach out to your building principal. For students in K-8th grades, the commitment form will be submitted via the PowerSchool Parent Portal. You will find it in the “Forms” section of the Portal. Click here for detailed instructions on how to complete this process.
