A Message from Geneva 304 Superintendent
Message from Superintendent Thumbnail
June 24, 2020
I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. Yesterday, the Illinois State Board of Education released guidance for schools on the 2020-21 school year, which strongly encourages schools to reopen in the fall for in-person learning.  
These guidelines will go a long way toward answering critical questions all of us share about what the 2020-21 school year will look like in terms of in-person learning, scheduling, transportation, wearing masks, social distancing and other measures intended to keep everyone safe and healthy, while also re-engaging students in the learning process.   
Right now, we don’t have all the answers to those questions as this document was released to school districts at the same time it was released to the public. Therefore, we kindly ask for your patience as our staff thoroughly reviews this detailed guidance and incorporates it into our District’s own plan.  We are keenly aware of the urgent need to communicate to families about what to expect next school year, and we will share an update on our planning process later this week.  
As you may know, Geneva 304 has already been discussing options for possible scenarios. This guidance will accelerate those conversations, and I’m confident we can put forth a plan that prioritizes the health and safety of our students and staff while maintaining a dynamic learning environment.   
Thank you again for your patience, understanding, and flexibility as our entire District navigates a situation together that none of us could have imagined.  We will be in touch soon. In the meantime, stay safe and enjoy your summer.  
Thank you,  
Dr. Kent Mutchler?   
Superintendent of Schools
