MONTICELLO, Ill. (WCIA) — Monticello CUSD #25 has released a summary of their current plans for reopening this fall.

In a letter to parents, officials said the first day of school for students will be September 2. Some of their plans for reopening include the following:

  • Full in-school learning five days a week.
    • Dismissal will be one hour earlier that normal
  • Students with medical notes regarding attendance will be given at-home remote learning plans.
  • Everyone in the school will be required to wear masks or face coverings when around other people.
    • Officials said they are planning several breaks during the day for students to go outside and remove their masks while maintaining social distance.
  • While staff may do some temperature checks at entrances, officials said parents are certifying their student is free of COVID-19 symptoms or temperature by sending them to school.
  • If a student or employee tests positive for COVID-19, they will be out of school for at least 14 days and can return when they have a doctor’s note sent to the school.
  • Students or staff that were in close contact (without a mask, within six feet, for more than 15 minutes) of someone that tested positive for the virus must self-quarantine based on contact tracing.
  • Social distancing in the school will include class seating as far apart as possible, possible staggered class dismissals, etc.
