It is hard to believe we have less than three weeks of school left of the 2020-2021 school year. Our staff felt beyond appreciated last week by our Field PTA! We are so lucky to have such an amazing community supporting and working with us. You Can’t Mask Awesomeness definitely extends to our whole Field community. Thank you, to all our Field parents as well as the Teacher Appreciation Committee, for their hard work. I’d like to give a special shout out to Heather Stotts and Sarah Jensen for their planning and coordination for this week and for our parent volunteers that supported this week as well as our monthly munchies Lauren Johnson, Audra Stanley, Tanya Britton, Karen Grogan, Kathleen Meade, and Katharine Wagner. I am sure I missed someone as so many of you give your time regularly. 

We plan to finish strong with learning and celebrate our hard work for the year. Classroom teachers will be sharing information about end of year events with you as the dates approach. 

Reminder: Tomorrow, Wednesday May 12th will be a Late Arrival Day for the students. The school doors will open at 9:30 am and classes begin at 9:45 am.

Quarantine and “Close Contacts”
D205 follows the Illinois Department of Public Health’s definition of a “close contact” as well as quarantine protocols.  With students attending school five days per week, our students are 3 feet (less than 6 feet) from each other in all classroom spaces. This means that when there is exposure at school, there will be students that are close contacts and required to quarantine.  As a public organization, we are required to follow all guidelines provided by IDPH.  We use our detailed school and classroom schedules as well as seating charts to contact trace and make sure we are identifying close and non-close contacts accurately.
