Planning for remote learning will be continual during these initial days and information will be directly shared from either building principals or your child's classroom teacher as it is developed, but it is important to note the general Remote Learning Plan specifics. Attached are the components for remote learning within the district and what is expected from teachers, students, parents, and the district. Please continue to monitor the district's modes of communication for future information. We look forward to working with you on creating a setup that will be conducive for success with your student.

NEWS: Today, USD 456 was notified that a student at the elementary building has tested positive for COVID-19. In consultation with OCHD, due to their interaction with others occurring at school while masked, there are not any other resulting home quarantines amongst staff or students. However, given the close nature of the student interaction and the ability to cohort, the district is instituting a "cohort schedule" for 3rd grade students. Parents of those students are to be contacted today by school staff and we will discuss the specifics of the schedule with parents directly. This does not affect any other grade level in the district. USD 456 continues to encourage students, parents, and staff to stay vigilant about their health, stay home when symptomatic, mask up when in public, and maintain appropriate hygiene during the course of the day. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
