2021 Return to Learn Plan and ARP ESSER Funding Plan

The first day of student attendance is August 18th, and the staff at SPGS is looking forward to a great school year! Below, you will see a copy of the district's "Return to Learn Plan." You will notice that plan calls for a normal school day (8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.) five days a week. Like last year, students will be allowed to enter the building at 7:45. The goal of the plan is to provide as close to a pre-pandemic educational experience for our students, while also promoting things like handwashing and enhanced cleaning throughout the building. 

Prior to the Governor's August 4th Executive Order, it was the intent of the South Pekin Grade School administration and school board to start the school year with masks being recommended, not required. However, the Governor's order has forced the district to require masks to start the year. If/when the Governor's order expires, there is language in the plan that would allow the district to make masks recommended. If any of our families would like to voice their opinion of the Governor's order to our representatives in Springfield, their contact information is listed below. 

We are looking forward to a great school year! While it won't be completely "normal", we are striving to make it as close to what school was like prior to Covid-19 as we can.
