Parents, Guardians and Staff: Note: There will be no student attendance from March 16 through March 30, 2020. Due to an increase in nearby counties with confirmed cases of COVID-19, the Paw Paw District will not hold school on Monday, March 16 as previously stated. This decision was made after the Governor’s Press Conference late afternoon today. Teachers and Staff will be reporting on Monday, March 16, to prepare Alternative Education Plans for students. We will have more information on distribution of learning materials for you tomorrow. We will hold the regular Board of Education meeting on Monday evening and are asking that everyone observe social distancing protocols as requested by the health departments. As this health situation evolves, we may have to make changes to our decisions and protocols as needed.
Today, Governor Pritzker announced that all Illinois schools will be closed beginning March 17 and will reopen March 31 to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. Paw Paw students are expected to be at school for a regular school day on March 16. At that time, we will be sending home alternate education plans that may include an online component, handouts or packets. Packets will contain educational materials for March 17, 18, 19, and 20. The School Board Meeting will be held on Monday night as scheduled. All other activities, athletics, and facility rentals are canceled until the reopening of school on March 30. Governor Pritzker may extend the cancellation so please plan accordingly. Social distancing is an important component of our pandemic planning, reducing the potential for exposure if the virus is found in our community. This is an unprecedented event in our lifetime. This public health emergency is evolving rapidly, and we will continue to inform you as quickly as we can of any changes. Any student with planned travel to an affected region should contact the school to report their plans; those who develop concerning symptoms will be immediately referred to the health department. We encourage you to follow the travel advisories from the U.S. Department of State and the CDC. This is an unprecedented event in our lifetime. This public health emergency is evolving rapidly, and we will continue to adapt and adjust our plan based on the most up-to-date information. Thank you for your assistance in keeping our students and community healthy.
