The food items that will be available will be similar to those distributed during our last food service day. Please contact Debra Fuchs, Director of Food Service for CUSD #2 @ 815-792-5410 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. Pick-up location will be the front door of the Sheridan Grade School or you may choose to have your meals delivered to your home on Wednesday December 2nd. The deadline for orders will be on Tuesday, December 1st, by 9:00 a.m.
It was decided that Remote Learning will be extended a week due to the continued increase of COVID related illnesses. Our new plan is to return to in-person learning on Monday, December 7th. We encourage everyone to be safe and cautious during this upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Our goal is to return to school on December 7th and provide in-person instruction before we pause again for winter break. To accomplish this goal, we will need everyone’s help and support. Please have a safe and happy holiday. Spencer Byrd - Superintendent
Hello, this is Mr. Byrd, Superintendent with an important message. Tomorrow, the HS will move to a full remote learning schedule. This is for HS students only, both Harding and Sheridan elementary will remain open as well as Serena MS. We had one HS employee go home today symptomatic and two students recently testing positive for the corona virus. At this time, the parents of any students that may have been in close contact with these individuals, has already been contacted. So again, the high school ONLY will be placed on a full remote schedule starting tomorrow, Tuesday the 10th, through Friday the 13th. Lastly, we will continue to encourage everyone to wear a mask when in public, social distance at all times, wash hands often, and if you are not feeling well, it is best to stay home until you know for sure. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your building principal directly.
Future Fridays: 9/18-Teacher Institute Day 9/25-Remote Learning Day 10/2-Remote Learning Day 10/9-Teacher Institute Day (one of our original four TI days) 10/16-Remote Learning Day (end of the First Quarter) 10/23-School Closed (due to PT conferences) 10/30-TBD Remote Learning days should also help us accomplish our goals of staying open, sustaining what we have built the past four weeks, and avoiding the possibility of a long-term forced remote learning situation. If we can make it to October 16, the end of the 1st Quarter, that will be a significant accomplishment. In addition, if we can make it through the first nine weeks, I think we have a good chance of making it to winter break. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your building principal directly. I am sure they will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
Reminders for this Week: • Students must wear a mask to board a bus and/or to enter a school building and they must wear it throughout the school day. • Students must have a Boarding Pass to board a bus and cannot board without one. • If parents can drive their students to school, please do so. Every student that is driven by a parent helps us to better social distance on the bus. • If a student is dropped off by a parent and has a Boarding Pass, they can enter the school building directly after presenting the pass. If they do not have a Boarding Pass, they must have their temperature taken prior to entering the building. • There will be random temperature checks throughout the school day to ensure everyone’s safety to the fullest. • The doors for all schools will not officially open until 7:45 a.m. and the official start of the school day will remain 8:05. • Release times will be earlier for the first five weeks of school, at the very least. The MS and HS will release at 1:30 and the ELE schools will release at 1:45. • The first five Fridays will be non-student attendance days. Students will remain home while teachers will report to their individual schools for Professional Development activities. (August 21, 28 and September 4, 11, 18)
Reminder, teachers first day back is August 17th, Monday and students are scheduled to Return to Learn on Tuesday, August 18th. We are excited to welcome our students back next week!
