Dear Friend of CCSD93,
Messages From Superintendent Hill
What to Expect for the Start of the 2020-21 School Year 
With the final day of school occurring on Wednesday, today is our final Enews until closer to the start of the 2020-21 school year. I want to update you on where we currently stand with regards to the start of next school year.

Since the beginning of school closures, our administrators have been closely following guidance from the state, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE), and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) with an eye towards what this pandemic means for the start of the 2020-21 school year. While we want nothing more than to welcome students fully into our buildings as normal, we recognize that it may not be possible by August. As such, we have been working on the following three plans for what a return to school will look like.  
Each of these plans involve extensive details pertaining to student safety, social and emotional support, and expectations for student learning. We have been in dialogue with other districts throughout DuPage County to achieve a measure of consistency with regards to these potential scenarios. If in the coming weeks it appears most likely that plans B or C will be necessary, we will be convening a committee of CCSD93 teachers and other staff members to review and contribute to our plans so that we are as prepared as possible to best serve the families and students of our community. 

The details of each scenario will continue to be developed and updated as the Governor's Restore Illinois plan continues to progress and as we receive further guidance. CCSD93 will continue to adhere to any mandates and give strong consideration to recommendations and suggestions from the state, ISBE, and IDPH. 

We know that none of these scenarios are ideal, and we understand that plans B and C will be difficult for many of our families. Please know we will continue to do our best to support all families while fulfilling our Mission of maximizing the academic, social, and emotional potential of each student. As of now, regardless of which scenario is chosen for the start of 2020-21, we do plan to return on our currently scheduled first day of school, August 17, 2020. No matter what, we will reach out to you via call, text, email, and app push as early as possible with details on which plan is chosen and whether the start date is delayed. 

Thank you for your continued support as we overcome these circumstances together.
Connect with Your Child's Principal for Further Pick Up / Drop Off
Thank you to those who were able to attend our Student Supply Pick Up / Drop Off events at our schools. I know our school leaders appreciated your preparedness in helping to create an efficient process. 

If you were unable to attend and either still have a district-owned device that you did not digitally agree to keep over the summer or need any personal items from your child's school, please reach out to your child's principal to make arrangements for pick up / drop off.
