As of March 31, Illinois State Board of Education has announced that all Illinois schools are to transition from the previous Act of God Days to Remote Learning Days.  All schools are to have either an E-Learning Plan or a Remote Learning Plan in place and posted on their website.  Edwards County’s Remote Learning Plan can be found at www.edwardscountyschools.org.  

As of now, the school closure is set to expire April 7, unless an extension is executed by Governor Pritzker.  If this occurs, Edwards County Schools will get this information out as quickly as possible.  Once schools are allowed to resume, Edwards County Schools will be using a Remote Planning Day to transition back to on-site learning.  As of now, the official return date is April 9.  We will keep the public informed of any changes to this date.

Please be advised that all days during remote learning are considered instructional days and participation/completion of school assignments is mandatory.  Assignments will be graded and recorded per ISBE guidelines.  Students or families who are having difficulties or have questions are encouraged to reach out to their teachers.  Teachers will be accessible between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.  E-mail is the best method of communication unless other arrangements have been made.

More specific details regarding Remote Learning Days can be found in the Remote Learning Plan located on the school district website.

Edwards County Community Unit School District #1 appreciates everyone’s understanding and cooperation during these difficult and unprecedented times.  If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s school or the District Office at 445-2814.
