Neoga CUSD #3 School Re-Opening Plan for SY 2022-2023 Approved by the Board of Education on August 11, 2022

School Day

  • At this time remote learning is not approved by the Illinois State Board of Education.  According to ISBE, only those students under isolation or quarantine are eligible for remote learning.  
  • Masks are not required. The CDC recommends, but does not mandate, universal indoor masking in communities with high COVID-19 levels.
  • School will start at the usual times - 8:00 for NES and 8:05 for NJSHS.  
  • School will be in session for a full day with 2:43 dismissal.

  • The district custodial staff will continue to ensure proper cleaning practices are maintained throughout the school day.

Students

  • Good hand hygiene will be strongly encouraged at all grade levels.
  • Students will be frequently reminded to use appropriate respiratory etiquette.
  • As we did in 2021-2022, the district will regularly benchmark students to look for learning loss and to help in determining interventions for students.
  • Interventions will continue in all buildings just as they did FY 22.
  • Chronic absenteeism will be referred to the ROE Attendance Specialist and/or the Cumberland County States Attorney as appropriate.
  • All medical records, physicals, dental exams, and vision exams should be completed for students as indicated by law.  Exclusion from school will be enforced when appropriate.
  • Students who have symptoms of infectious illness, such as influenza (flu) or Covid-19, should stay home and contact their healthcare provider for testing and care.
