Dear Parents,

 

            Unfortunately, we have had a few more positive COVID-19 test results in the district. We also have a large number of students in quarantine for close contact. I conferred with the Vermilion County Health Department this morning and the consensus is that we needed to shut down both districts (Bismarck-Henning CUSD #1 & Bismarck-Henning/Rossville-Alvin Cooperative High School) for 14 days and go remote learning during the closure. The full closure will begin tomorrow and we will reopen for in-person instruction on Monday, October 26th. This will hopefully give things a chance to settle down before students return. This definitely is not the news I was wanting to share. I do believe the district has done everything it can do in order to offer in-person learning but we cannot control what happens once students leave. Please continue to work hard to keep your children safe and healthy as we will certainly get through this. As we have done since day one, we will continue to work with the Vermilion County Health Department and the Illinois Department of Public Health to strictly follow their guidelines pertaining to public schools.

           

 

Respectfully,

 

Scott Watson, Superintendent

Bismarck-Henning CUSD #1
