Joint Message Regarding 5-Day In-Person Learning
Joint Message Updates Icon
March 16, 2021

As you are aware, last week Geneva 304 received updated public health guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois State Board of Education. This new guidance will allow us to re-evaluate the hybrid schedule of our In-Person Model and prepare to expand our In-Person Model to five days a week while maintaining a safe learning environment and minimizing disruptions such as a change in building or teacher assignment.  

Based on this development, our task force has been refining plans to allow for K-12 students enrolled in the In-Person Learning model to return to five-day on-site education following spring break on April 5, in accordance with the most recent public health guidance. The Online-Only Learning model will continue to be in place for families that have chosen that option as well.  

As we prepare for this transition to five-day in-person learning, we want to share our current timeline of important information helpful to families over the next couple weeks:  

From now through March 26:  
  • District will provide families with additional details regarding a transition to five-day learning for students enrolled in the In-Person Learning model.
  • District may need to gather additional information from families depending on the learning model in which their children are enrolled.  
  • Staff will work to prepare students, classrooms, materials, and facilities for a transition to five-day in-person learning.  
  • Staff will review the most up-to-date learning model enrollment and further updates will be communicated by your child’s school.  

Week of March 29:  
  • Spring Break  

April 5:  
  • All in-person students begin five-day learning in their buildings.  

We understand there will be many questions related to this development and remain committed to providing you with information as soon as it becomes available. In the coming days, we will be sharing much more information about these plans and encourage families to stay tuned to 304Connects and the Back Together 304 website. Thank you for your continued partnership.
