Dear Parents and Guardians:   

This letter includes key points and information on our return to school planning for the 2020-21 school year. 

At its July 21 meeting, the Board of Education approved a return to school with our fully remote learning plan, at least through Friday, October 2. 

Our first day of remote learning is Monday, August 17. Details were provided to students and families by our Almond and O’Plaine campus administration. The link to our Fully Remote Plan, which is in the Academics section of our website, is available here: https://www.d121.org/domain/135

Warren’s Website – www.d121.org 
The district’s website is the best source for updated information about our return to school for the 2020-21 school year. The latest details about what you and your student will need to begin the school year are on the front page of the website. We also send notifications to your email and highlight specific information on the district’s Facebook page.
