The Coles County Health Department has acquired the Pfizer vaccine. As this is the only vaccine that has been approved for those 16 and 17 years old, that will be the priority population. Parents of students 16 or 17 years old who would like the vaccine, should email Covid19@co.coles.il.us. The body of the email should include only the student's age and zip code. An emailed response will include a link to register your child.

Just before noon today, we received updated IDPH/ISBE guidance on re-opening schools that reduces many of the mitigation strategies and requirements for keeping schools opening during the pandemic. The new guidance was released after announcing our 4th quarter opening plans were announced, so we now have much work to do in considering how our current protocols can be revised to fit this new guidance. As such, we are meeting with our district's re-opening planning team this afternoon to share this news and to start the planning process to re-align our protocols with the new guidance. The process of re-tooling our plans and implementing any potential changes in our schools will take some time. Thank you for your patience during this new phase of planning. In the coming weeks, be expecting additional announcements about any changes to our opening status plans, including the possibility of utilizing full-day schedules, for the remainder of this school year.

Our district's "opening status planning team" met this Tuesday to review input on 4th Quarter opening status ideas and identify advantages and drawbacks of each idea. Thank you to everyone who participated! Considering social distancing and remote learning option requirements, data and cost, multiple constituent perspectives and innovative ideas, we continue to weigh options and still plan on making an announcement prior to our March 15 Spring Break. Understanding that no option will be suited for everyone, our collaborative of principals, educators, Board members, students and parents are striving to arrive at an opening status that focuses on health and safety for all and is best suited for our #1 priority: students.

Our district is hosting another "opening status planning team" meeting tomorrow at 2:00. Representatives include district staff, students, parents and Board members. We have valued our past collaboration in achieving our best collective thinking and decision making about opening schools during the pandemic. While we do not anticipate many school-specific protocol changes at this point in the year, we do project a focus on whether our fourth quarter will consist of full-day (as formerly utilized) or early dismissal schedules (as currently utilized). Our aim is to listen closely to advantages and drawbacks and to decide on a 4th quarter opening status to announce prior to our March 15 Spring Break. Your input, which will be shared with the planning team, can be sent to fourthquarter@charleston.k12.il.us before 12:00 noon tomorrow. Thank you for engaging in our school community!
