Return to School 2020-2021

All District 87 Schools will transition to the Hybrid Model beginning on Tuesday, January 19, 2021. Remote Learning will continue to be offered for families who have chosen that option. The Hybrid Model phases are as follows:

  • Phase 1: Tuesday, January 19th: Kindergarten, 3rd Grade, and 6th Grade On-Site

  • Phase 2: Monday, February 1st: 1st Grade, 4th Grade, and 7th Grade On-Site

  • Phase 3: Monday, February 8th: 2nd Grade, 5th Grade, and 8th Grade On-Site

  • **Tuesday, February 16th: Pre-K

New Daily Schedule for ALL students beginning Tuesday, January 19th

  • 8:45 a.m. Hybrid Student Arrival

  • 9:00 a.m. School Begins

  • 12:00 p.m. AM Learning Ends/Hybrid Student Dismissal

**At this time, schools will not be able to accommodate any new requests to change from Remote to Hybrid. Once we have time to evaluate our Hybrid plan, we will survey families again for a possible expansion of the Hybrid Model for additional students. We anticipate this happening in late March as we near spring break.

Metrics: District 87 is using a comprehensive set of metrics to guide its decision-making process for reopening schools. We monitor data daily to inform our recommendations for the safety and well-being of our students, staff, and community.

These metrics include:

  • Staff Health Data

  • Community Positivity Rates by Zip Code & County

  • New Cases per 100,000 by Zip Code & County

  • Feedback from Parents/Guardians from Surveys

  • Student Attendance Data

  • Student Assessment and Achievement Data

The data chart below contains the information recommended by the Illinois Department of Public Health to be used as one factor in determining the safety of in-person instruction.

District 87 uses this data by zip code for each of the 6 communities it serves to monitor daily.
