2 – Pick up points will be established as follows on some routes:
Coulters Mill Road – corner of Coulters Mill & Star Route
North Prairie View Road from Star Route to County 24 – corner of Prairie View and Star Route Road

LaPlace – corner of Bentonville Road & West C Street, Post Office, corner of East B & Front Street, and corner of 2nd & South Main Street
Cerro Gordo – corner of Crea & Lincoln Street and corner of North County Line Road and Oakley Blacktop. Cerro Gordo stops will only be on the north side of the railroad tracks. No in town pick up or drop off of Pre-K students.
3 – All individuals will be required to wear masks on school buses. This is to include extracurricular activities, sports trips, school trips, HTA and RCC.
4 – If your student IS NOT going to ride the bus you must contact the bus barn 217-763-5091 no later than 6:30 am. When an individual has had three no call/no shows, the driver will not be required to stop at that location.
5 – All students need to be AT THEIR PICK UP LOCATION. Allow 5 minutes before or 5 minutes after for the bus to arrive. Several circumstances beyond our control may occur.
6 – If a student is in 2nd grade or below they will not be allowed to be dropped off without an adult present or a designated person/sibling present.
If you have any questions please contact Deb Taylor or Tammy Nuding at 217-763-5091.
We are looking for a BAS director for our after school program. We will not be offering the BAS program at the start of the school year until the position is filled.
Cerro Gordo CUSD #100 is diligently examining, analyzing and evaluating the ever-changing guidance regarding COVID-19 preventative mitigation strategies. We expect to receive updated guidance and clarity in the coming weeks. In order to finalize our reopening plan, we will continue to watch and monitor current local conditions as we plan for school opening on August 18, 2021. While we acknowledge the conflicting communication views, please know we will be deliberate in our approach and are planning for a successful 2021-2022 school year with a focus on student learning and engagement, as well as safety.
