Hello, District 202 Education Partners,

Hope you have had a good week. Here is today’s selection of D. 202 news and information:


There is a misconception, based on a video on social media, that the CDC is directing schools to open. The CDC does not have that authority. Rather, the CDC provides guidance to schools to assist with their decision-making process

Among other important points, the CDC emphasizes that schools must consider their impact on the greater community when planning to re-open, as COVID-19 is a community health issue.

  • Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lane Abrell yesterday told WJOL (1340 AM) radio he tentatively plans to announce a new schedule for returning to in-person learning at (or maybe slightly before) the January 11, 2021 Board of Education meeting.
  • Please continue to review our special "Covid-19 Parent Handbook" to help families understand the pandemic, official health guidance, rules, our efforts to keep students and staff safe, etc.

The Parent Handbook is one of several resources posted on the Covid-19 Information page on our website to help families while we are in remote learning. Please continue to review these materials.
