The following is a link to our e-Learning Day plan: https://5il.co/x8dg An e-Learning day could be used instead of an emergency day (think snow day). To clarify, this was an option that was available to school districts before COVID came. This simply gives us a choice to take a snow day OR implement an e-Learning Day. We might all want a snow day or two to enjoy but if and when the big winter storm comes, this gives us an option.

Dear Vandalia #203 Staff and Families, We are so excited to start the 21-22 school year! I know there is a lot of noise around COVID mandates, recommendations, and mitigation measures. My request is that we focus on having an excellent start to the school year. I believe this is the best thing we can do for the mental health of our children. Going to school five days a week on a normal schedule will be my priority. We believe in local control and that is why I signed on as a leader of #MakeItLocalIL. My recommendations regarding how to start the school year have not changed. There is not a one size fits all model in IL as each community is different. My ask is that we figure this out in Vandalia together as a community. #VandalStrong is not something we hang our hats on only when times are easy, but we do the same and come together during difficult times as well. We can do this for our children. If we start school and see a spike of COVID cases being spread inside our walls and into our community, we will adjust to the specific situation. To our staff and students getting vaccinated so you do not have to wear a mask or quarantine, I hear you. To the families of children in grades PreK-6 who are not eligible for the vaccine and have concerns over the variants, I hear you. To the parents who oppose masks, quarantines, or vaccines, I hear you. Every single voice is important. The vaccine is available for those 12 and above now so families have choices that we did not have in August of 2020. We may not all get exactly what we want each day of the school year but please help me in coming together to do this as ONE Town, ONE School, and ONE family. I will end by emphasizing once again that my priority is going to school five days a week on a normal schedule. The rest will fall into place. Yes there will probably be some bumps in the road but I am ready for the buses to roll and welcome our students to the 21-22 school year! #VandalStrong Jennifer Garrison
