Dear Parents and Guardians:   

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. The link to our Fully Remote Plan, which is in the Academics section of our website, is available here:  

Attendance Form Reminder
We have had a good start to our school year, with large numbers of students connecting with their teachers and beginning their classes. As a reminder, in addition to all students taking care of their academic responsibilities for their courses, they need to fill out the daily Google form (which is in Canvas) to be counted as “present” for each school day. 

In-Person Open Houses Cancelled
Due to our remote status and enhanced health requirements at our campuses, we have canceled the in-person open houses (August 20 at Almond and August 27 at O’Plaine) for this year. We do hope to release a virtual version of an open house within the next several weeks. Please look for information from our building principals regarding these events. 

Thank you again for your ongoing flexibility and support as we work together to make the 2020-21 school year as successful as possible for all our students and families.


John P. Ahlgrim, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
