Return to In-Person Learning January 2021

District 6 Families:


Happy New Year, and welcome to the second semester of the 2020-2021 school year. We hope you are healthy, rested and ready to start school!


As communicated in December, students will return to in-person learning in phases. This will help us limit the transmission of COVID-19 and keep cases down in our schools. Here are some important reminders about the phased-in schedule for the return to in-person learning this month.


January 6, 2021

  • Full Online School returns to previous online schedule
  • Preschool-12 grade returns to remote learning
  • All schools and programs, except preschool, released 2 hours early every Wednesday to allow for teacher preparation

  • Kindergarten, first and second grades return in-person. Preschool does not meet on  Mondays, so those students will return on January 12.
  • Grades 3-12 remain on remote learning

Free meals for all students will continue for the second semester. Neighborhood meal delivery and school-based meal pick up sites for online students will also continue. Please visit for up-to-date information.


We are excited to have students return to in-person learning. We ask families to assist in keeping cohorts in school and keeping schools open as safely as possible. Please carefully read these health reminders!



  • Sick students must be kept home! If your student has any of these symptoms, and has not received an alternative diagnosis from a physician, you must keep them home! Students with any of these symptoms should receive a COVID-19 test as soon as possible. Here is a link to a list of testing sites. The symptoms of COVID-19 are:


      • Fever or chills
      • Cough
      • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
      • Fatigue
      • Muscle or body aches
      • Headache
      • New loss of taste or smell
      • Sore throat
      • Congestion or runny nose
      • Nausea or vomiting
      • Diarrhea


  • Do not send students to school if ANYONE in the household has these symptoms, or has recently tested positive for COVID-19. It is essential to limit the spread of COVID-19 that any student who has been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or to someone who is exhibiting symptoms be kept home for at least 14 days from the last date of exposure. Please contact your school to have your child continue learning remotely.


  • If your student or anyone in your home is awaiting COVID-19 test results because of exposure or because of symptoms, do not send your child to school. If the person exposed or with symptoms receives a negative PCR test, children in the household may return to school if they have no symptoms.

It will take all of us - our staff, families and students - to make this a successful, safe and healthy semester. Please help us keep your students in our schools learning!

We look forward to seeing all our students in person this month. Stay safe and stay healthy!
