Madison Family, Since the end of the school year we have been working on how to best reopen school this fall. Three options were developed; in-person, hybrid and remote learning. Over the last several weeks we presented these three options to families and staff. We have asked for your input on how you would like to see school opened and students educated. Based on this input, guidance from the Illinois State Board of Education and Illinois Department of Public Health we have made the decision to begin the school year with remote learning. Remote learning will continue through the end of the first quarter. This decision was not made lightly. Our two greatest concerns are the safety of all who enter the buildings and providing the best education for students. With the increasing rates of COVID-19 in our region we feel the safest option is to continue remote learning. Now that the decision has been made, we will provide frequent updates to make sure everyone has accurate information as we adjust to our new normal together. We thank you for all of your input, and we look forward to providing the best educational opportunity possible for students. Andrew ReinkingSuperintendent
