Dear Cerro Gordo CUSD #100 Staff and Community,
On Friday, March 20th, Governor Pritzker issued an executive order requiring residents to “stay at home” effective Saturday, March 21 at 5:00 pm, through the end of April 7. As part of the Governor’s order, he announced that school will remain closed, with a new tentative reopening date of April 8. We recognize that this development may raise questions about the impact on students, staff, and families as well as the school’s vital role of providing meals to students and families while schools are closed. We anticipate further guidance and details from the Illinois State Board of Education next week.
During this stay at home order, essential school personnel may still report to work as long as they are practicing social distancing. We want you to know the governor’s office has assured school districts that school personnel involved in providing meals will not be in violation of the governor’s executive order and that we can, and should, continue with our program, which has had a tremendous impact in making sure our students are not going hungry while school is closed.
In addition, the governor has made it clear that, while he’s serious about using social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19, he wants residents to still be able to work, shop at grocery stores, put gas in their cars, take walks outside and get medication from the pharmacy. Rest assured, we are committed to doing our best to provide meals and deliver continuity of education.
Please use this opportunity to focus on staying safe and helping to slow the spread of the virus. As always, thank you for your patience and support as we all work through the COVID-19 Pandemic. As you have seen, this situation is evolving rapidly. As events unfold, we will continue to communicate in a timely and transparent manner.
In his public address this afternoon, Governor J.B. Pritzker extended his executive order mandating the closure of all Illinois public and private schools through April 7 in an effort to help minimize the spread of the corona virus.
During the closure, Cerro Gordo Schools will continue to provide grab and go lunches and breakfasts for all children 18 years and under that request them.
Cerro Gordo CUSD #100
The PreK Screenings scheduled for Tuesday, March 24 and Thursday, March 26 are being postponed until a later date.
The rescheduled dates have not been set yet. We will have more information to share in the next 2-3 weeks. Please watch for information on the Cerro Gordo website (www.cgbroncos.org) or Cerro Gordo CUSD 100 Facebook page.
Thank you for understanding!
Governor J.B. Pritzker announced today that all public and private Illinois schools will be closed March 17th - March 30th due to COVID-19. Students will have a full attendance day on Monday March 16th and then return to school on Tuesday March 31st.
There will be NO school activities from March 17th-March 30th including practices. Students are NOT to be on school grounds during this time frame.
This is an unprecedented situation and we will keep you updated as we know more. Check our website and Facebook for information as it comes available.
To Cerro Gordo CUSD #100 students, staff, parents and community:
This letter shall serve as an informational update on COVID-19 or Coronavirus and what is in the works for Cerro Gordo CUSD #100. Please understand that the situation is constantly evolving. We receive informational updates from the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and federal, state and local health officials. I encourage you to visit www.isbe.net where you’ll find updates, as well as our local health departments, IDPH and CDC.
What preventative measures are we using to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment? We are encouraging frequent hand washing with soap and water or using hand sanitizer, cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or arm/sleeve, continuing to use best practices in cleaning and sanitizing, especially on surfaces frequently touched by multiple people, all to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for staff and students.
Earlier this week, school district superintendents received an email from Dr. Carmen Ayala, our state superintendent, stating that it is “imperative” that districts work on alternative e-learning plans in the event schools need to close due to the Coronavirus. An alternative e-learning plan would allow learning to continue via technology or other means while our students are not in school.
Within the past year, E-learning plans have become an option for Illinois school districts for weather-related school closings. Districts can implement e-learning plans and consider it a work day for teachers and the day does not have to be made up by staff or students. At this point, very few districts across the state – approximately 10%, most of which are 1 to 1 districts - have implemented these plans. Our administrative team has been meeting on the development of an alternative learning plan that could meet our students’ needs.
Effective immediately, and in coordination with other area school districts, the following changes are in effect. All Cerro Gordo and CGB extra-curricular games, meets and contests are cancelled through April 5, though practices will continue. The High School Musical performances scheduled for April 3-4 are postponed to a later date to be determined. All other school, youth league and community events scheduled to be held in Cerro Gordo Schools are also cancelled through April 5. Finally, we ask that all non-essential visitors postpone any planned visits to the school until after April 5.
Cerro Gordo CUSD #100 will continue to monitor the situation and continue to work with ISBE and local health officials to best meet the needs of students, staff and community. Thank you for your patience, understanding and support of our students, staff and school district.
Brett Robinson, Superintendent
