COVID-19

This fall, the District 191 Board of Education approved a plan for the start of the school year that slowly built to all grade levels attending school in our Hybrid model.

As of Sept. 28, District 191 schools are operating in the Hybrid model. Learn more about our Fall Learning Plan

Changing Learning Models

How the decision to change learning models is made

Learning Model Decision ProcessAlong with public health conditions around COVID-19, there are many other factors that play a role in determining what learning model District 191 schools use, including student attendance data, staffing considerations and our ability to implement health and safety measures like cleaning or providing PPE.

Student Meals

District 191 will provide free meals to all children ages 1-18 on all scheduled, instructional school days, including in-person and distance learning days through Dec. 31, 2020 or until funding is exhausted. Currently, meals are distributed between 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m on Wednesdays and packed for one day, three days or five days, depending on a student's distance learning days. Learn more about meal distribution.

Transportation

In a hybrid model, students are required to practice social distancing while riding the bus. This means the district does have as much space for students, so we are asking families to use alternative transportation if they can, such as driving their children to school, participating in a ride share with friends/neighbors, or walking/biking if it is safe. 

Technology

Families who need assistance with any technology-related issues should visit our technology support page.

Childcare

Childcare is available during distance learning time and for both before- and after-school and non-school days for children in grades K-5. As required by state order, children of first responders, educators and other essential workers on Tier 1 of the state’s essential worker list have access to free child care during typical school hours only.

Health & Safety Commitments

To help minimize the potential spread of COVID-19, District 191 is taking the following actions:

  • Masks are mandated for staff and students in grades K-12 while in school.
  • Strict social distancing
  • Emphasizing handwashing, provide hand sanitizer
  • Minimize visitors to schools
  • Increased cleaning, sanitizing of school buildings

Watch how District 191 custodial staff is implementing several daily cleaning and disinfecting protocols and priorities.

You can help by practicing wearing a mask with your students, and following good health practices while away from school. Learn more at www.isd191.org/fall2020/health.
