D34 Flex & Return-to-School
Aspire. Explore. Discover. Connect. FLEX.
District 34, like all other school districts across the country, faces the task of returning students to in-person learning as soon as it is safe to do so. We recognize that the 2020-2021 school year will be like no other, and that it will require a great deal of planning, communication, collaboration and flexibility.
Moving to Hybrid In-Person Learning
District 34 will open its doors to hybrid in-person learning on Tuesday, January 19. Students in GOAL will remain in a fully remote environment through the end of the trimester. All health and safety protocols will continue to be in place as students and staff return to school.
District 34 is working in many ways to adopt policies and procedures, establish systems, and provide resources to protect the health and safety of students, staff and families. We follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), as well as the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE). A metric dashboard will be shared with the community that indicates when a move to a different environment is warranted.
As we work to reach our "new normal," District 34 is committed to:
- Safety & Health: The safety and health of students, staff and families is the top priority.
- Flexibility: We have developed plans that allow us to adapt to inevitable changes.
- Equity: We will provide equitable access for all students and families.
- Connections: D34 will keep open the lines of two-way communication, and communicate consistently, clearly and with compassion.
