Phase One School Reopening Plan

July 15, 2020

District 66 Community:

At last night's Board of Education Meeting, the Center Cass Board of Education approved the Phase One Plan for the Reopening of Schools. I would like to thank the Board and the Center Cass community for supporting the reopening plan. Administration will work with faculty and staff over the next 4 weeks to put the Phase One measures into place and develop a Phase Two Plan, which will include more guidance. A frequently asked questions document will be created and placed on the website in the near future. If you have general questions regarding the Reopening Plan, please contact me. If you have specific questions pertaining to your child's school, please contact your child's principal. Together, we will create an environment that is conducive to learning for the students of Center Cass. 

Educationally Yours,

Dr. Wise

Important Resources During these Difficult Times:

Illinois Department of Human Services' Mental Health Division launched a free-of-charge emotional support text line, Call4Calm for IL residents experiencing stress/mental health issues related to COVID-19. People who would like to speak to a mental health professional can text "TALK" to 552020 or for Spanish, "HABLAR" also to 552020. Individuals remain anonymous. Once a person sends a text to the hotline, within 24 hours they will receive a call back from a counselor.

People can also text 552020 with keywords such as "unemployment" or "food" or "shelter" and will receive information on how to navigate and access other supports and services.
