A Message from the Superintendent

District 205 has begun the process of bringing students back to campus for in-person and hybrid learning. The first group of students returned to several of our schools on September 2nd. A second group returned on September 8. As of Monday, September 14, all elementary students and special learning populations will be back at their schools. The plan for the remaining students is as follows: 

  • September 21— 6th and 9th grade students return

  • September 28— 7th and 10th grade students return

  • October 5— 8th and 11th/12th grade students return

Special thanks to all of our hardworking employees for making this return to campus possible. I would ask that the community please be patient as our teachers work to master the challenge of managing remote and hybrid instruction while ensure for the health and safety of our students. 

The District has partnered with the Elmhurst Park District in a program entitled Club Ed to assist families with child care concerns during Remote and Hybrid Learning.

Recently, the DuPage County Health Department developed guidance for schools based on metrics that are classified into minimal, moderate, and substantial levels of risk for transmission of the virus.  D205 is following these guidelines. Currently, the county is in the Moderate Risk category and is expected to be in that category for the foreseeable future. When the county risk level is classified as Moderate, D205 will be utilize the hybrid instructional model. In addition, the District is developing a COVID dashboard to help keep the community appraised of data at the local level. The dashboard is expected to go live the week of September 21.

Community health is a collective responsibility. Please be safe. The District’s ability to sustain hybrid/in-person instruction requires a community effort. Please avoid large groups, wear masks in public, maintain social distancing, and practice regular hand washing.
