AURORA – Indian Prairie School District 204 announced on Monday afternoon that all schools will offer in-person learning for five days a week, beginning in April.
“After reviewing the revised guidance released last week from the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois State Board of Education,” said IPSD 204 Superintendent Dr. Adrian Talley, “we are excited to invite kindergarten through twelfth grade in-person students to campus five days a week starting in April.”
At the high school level, Talley said, “we are increasing to five days of in-person instruction by adding Mondays as a day in-person students will be on campus. Both remote and in-person students will follow the current class schedule from 7:25 am to 12:20 pm Monday through Friday. The first day in-person students will return to campus five days a week will be April 12.”
“Indian Prairie will continue to adhere to the mitigation strategies outlined by IDPH and ISBE,” said Talley. “This includes properly wearing masks at all times except when students are eating lunch. As we implement this transition, only elementary students will have lunch at school. We will follow the guidelines for students to be seated 6 feet apart during lunch. In the classroom, we will continue to use 6 feet of social distancing as much as possible; however, we will use the new guidance of reducing social distancing to 3 feet where necessary to ensure all students are in the classroom.”
