     Dear Mustang Families,

    We are so excited to welcome our students back to school next week! We are committed to remote learning this Fall that is rigorous and encourages all students to grow and achieve. One aspect of our regular school offerings is extracurricular activities, which need to be adjusted given our current situation.


    Planning for athletics, activities, and clubs is ongoing, as we firmly believe that these are important experiences for our students. However, at this time, the decision has been made to not allow middle school athletics or in person activities/clubs this Fall. We will do whatever we can to safely offer these opportunities moving forward in coordination with our eventual return to in person instruction. In addition, virtual offerings are being determined so that students can connect with the sports and interests that they enjoy.


    We will also continue to monitor the factors that impact this decision, including local public health data and guidance from the Will County and Illinois Departments of Public Health.


    Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can provide additional information. Thank you for being a partner with us this year. It is going to be unique and challenging, but we know we will succeed together.



    To College and Beyond
