    Dear CCSD93 Parents,

    Please review the following for:

    • Information on confirmation of student preferred learning options
    • Information on the reopening of CCSD93’s schools for in-person learning

    Your Child’s Preferred Learning Option Confirmation

    You were sent an email on 1/5/21 for each child you have in CCSD93’s schools confirming your most recently selected preferred learning option, either Hybrid Learning or Remote Learning. This selection was made through the end of the 2nd trimester, and you will have the opportunity to update your selection prior to 3rd trimester.

    Please be sure to refer to the email for specifics. Even if you did not change your preferred learning option, a limited number of students’ A or B grouping placements were changed from their original placement in the fall based on other classroom circumstances.

    Planned Return to In-Person Learning Dates & Details

    CCSD93 has continued to track community health data, staffing and quarantine restrictions. After substantial increases to critical data points in early-to-mid-November, there has been a steady decline, with spikes occurring in the days following the major gathering holidays of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve. 

    With this information in hand, CCSD93 is officially planning to reopen schools for in-person learning the week following what would amount to a 14-day quarantine period from New Years Eve. As previously shared, Hybrid Learning students in preschool through 3rd grade and 6th grade will come back first, with 4th, 5th, 7th and 8th returning the following week.

    The following are the planned return dates to in-person learning for students whose families have selected Hybrid Learning:

    Tuesday, January 19

    • All Preschool Hybrid Learning
    • All Kindergarten Hybrid Learning
    • All 1st Grade Hybrid Learning
    • All 2nd Grade Hybrid Learning
    • All 3rd Grade Hybrid Learning
    • 6th Grade Hybrid Learning Group A

    Wednesday, January 20

    • 6th Grade Hybrid Learning Group B

    Tuesday, January 26

    • All 4th Grade Hybrid Learning
    • All 5th Grade Hybrid Learning
    • 7th Grade Hybrid Learning Group A
    • 8th Grade Hybrid Learning Group A

    Wednesday, January 27

    • 7th Grade Hybrid Learning Group B
    • 8th Grade Hybrid Learning Group B

    Note: we are hopeful to return on the planned dates shared above, and we believe them to be realistic and achievable based on all of the information available. However, as always, they are subject to change if necessary.

    Next Steps

    Preschool & Elementary Students: 

    • Until your child’s grade level returns to in-person learning, your child will continue to follow the fully remote schedule they have been following.
    • The week prior to your child’s grade level returning to in-person learning, you will receive a message with reminders for what to expect the following week. 
      • If your child will participate in Hybrid Learning, this message will include timing details and important health and safety reminders, including information on completing CCSD93’s daily self-screener. A separate message will be sent to Hybrid Learning families who qualify for and have opted to receive busing. 
      • If your child will participate in Remote Learning, this message will include timing details.

    Middle School Students:

    • While start and end time hours of the school day will not change, each student’s daily schedule will be adjusted as our middle schools transition to offering in-person learning. More information will be shared with you soon, and until that time, your child will continue to follow the schedule they have followed.
    • The week prior to January 19, you will receive a message with reminders for what to expect once your child’s grade level returns to in-person learning. 
      • If your child will participate in Hybrid Learning, this message will include timing details and important health and safety reminders, including information on completing CCSD93’s daily self-screener. A separate message will be sent to Hybrid Learning families who qualify for and have opted to receive busing. 
      • If your child will participate in Remote Learning, this message will include timing details.

    All Students:

    • For reminders about daily schedules once schools open for in-person learning, visit this website for preschool, this website for elementary, and this website for middle school.
