The Crescent City Grade School board met Monday and announced its plan for reopening the school which is subject to change as the Center for Disease Control, the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois State Board of Education update their guidelines before the opening of school.

School will be conducted five days a week in-school and dismissal will be at 2:20 p.m. every day.

Students are expected to attend school daily and follow the re-opening plan approved by the District #249 board of education. Students who aren’t able to follow the guidelines won’t be able to attend school. Students who have medical situations that prevent them from attending will be placed on remote at-home learning.

Everyone in school will be required to wear a mask during the school day and practice social distancing. During breakfast and lunch times, students will be allowed to remove their face coverings, with other times set aside during the day to allow for breaks from the masks.

As students enter a bus/van or the building each morning, they will have their temperatures taken and be asked if they are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms. If the temperature is 100.4 or higher, they will not be allowed to ride the bus/van or enter the building. Parents who drop their children off at school are asked to wait until they have been given the all-clear after the student’s temperature has been taken...
