2021-22 School Year

Dear SD129 Families,  (Español)

Friday, we received direction for the 2021-22 school year based on the latest scientific information about COVID-19. That communication came from national and state authorities and includes:

  • Guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that provides information on masking, social distancing, contact tracing, and COVID-19 testing options for both students and staff.
     
  • A statement from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) that fully adopts the CDC’s guidance for schools.
     
  • A declaration from the State Superintendent, Dr. Carmen Ayala, stating that all schools must resume full in-person learning and that remote instruction be made available for students who have not received a COVID-19 vaccine or who are not eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, only while they are under quarantine.

We understand that our families are looking for more clarity on how this guidance will specifically impact School District 129. However, our district leadership team, Board of Education, union leaders, and legal counsel need time to thoroughly review the information to create a comprehensive plan that safely welcomes all students back to our schools each day. We look forward to sharing that information as soon as we are able. As a reminder, we can share with you the start and end times for each of our levels/programs so that you can use this information for planning purposes. That information can be found far below.

Sincerely,
Jeff Craig, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
West Aurora School District 129
