Monday, August 17th - Teacher Institute 
Tuesday, August 18th - Teacher Remote Planning Day
Wednesday, August 19th - 1st student attendance day with 11:30 AM dismissal
Thursday,August 20th - Full day of student attendance
Friday, August 21st - Full day of student attendance

In order to fulfil the requirement of providing remote learning to those who request it, our weekly schedule has been updated to look like this:

Monday - Full day of student attendance
Tuesday - Full day of student attendance
Wednesday - 11:30 dismissal for students
Thursday - Full day of student attendance
Friday - Full day of student attendance

On Wednesday afternoon teachers will be making remote lessons and communicating with remote learners.  The reason for this early dismissal on Wednesday afternoon is in part due to daycare.  If our students have siblings at Salem High School there would be someone to care for them during these Wednesday afternoons since Salem High School isn't in session on Wednesday.

The latest guidance for the State Board of Education has said that remote learning will be offered to any parent/guardian who requests it.  We are currently looking at ways of changing our Return to School Plan to accommodate this.  More details will be shared as we are given guidance.

Attached you will find a copy of the Selmaville Return to School Plan.  The details of this plan could be revised based upon guidance from IDPH and ISBE 

It is also important to remember that in-person instruction is dependent upon staying in Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan.

The teachers from Selmaville School have been working to prepare for the return of their students this upcoming school year.  They will be ready for all students on the first day of student attendance which is Tuesday, August 18th.   School will be in session on Monday through Friday using our regular schedule of 8 AM until 3:10 PM. 

With guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois State Board of Education we will be adding the following procedures in order to make our student’s return to school a safe one.

All staff and students will be required to wear a mask.  A couple of cloth masks will be provided to all students at the beginning of the year.  It is recommended that you purchase other cloth masks that fit your child properly.  These cloth masks can be laundered and reused.  If your child forgets to wear a mask to school, a disposable layered mask will be provided.  All students will be given multiple breaks from their masks daily outdoors while social distancing.

There will also be a water bottle provided for each child.  Since water fountains are not to be used, we have installed water bottle filling stations.  Students may use these filling stations without touching them to fill their bottles.

Free transportation will be available for any student who needs it.  In order to maintain the recommended social distancing measures on each bus, we do encourage you to drop your child off and pick them up each day if you can.  

At the end of the day we will load all bus riders first.  We ask all parents picking up their child to wait in the North parking lot until the buses depart.  Once all buses depart then we will begin having parents pull up in front of the building to get their child.  Each teacher will be with their class during this pickup time.

We will have much more information coming soon.

Parents are encouraged to print off registration materials from our "Registration Information" page from the quick links section on our webpage.  We ask that no children come to registration and masks be worn by those who enter the school.  If you are unable to print registration materials there will be registration packets available at the school.
