Return to Learn

~ UPDATE ~

At the Wednesday, November 18th Board of Education meeting, the Board approved an adaptive pause that will run from
November 30th to January 18, 2021. 


We want to thank our Board of Education, Administration, Teachers, Staff, Transportation Department, Substitute Teachers, Students, and Parents for being so flexible and understanding during this time. We appreciate everything you have committed to this year and value your resilience to an ever changing environment. 


Students and staff will follow the current hybrid schedule during this remote time. For more information please click here.


In an effort to keep our families updated on school/community-related matters associated with COVID-19 (coronavirus), and our 2020 Return to Learn plan, MCHS District 111 would like to provide some relevant information pertaining to the current situation. This situation is very fluid and, as we have experienced, can change at a moment's notice.

We will continue to monitor and follow coronavirus updates and guidance from the CDC, Illinois Department of Public Health, Grundy County Department of Health, and the Illinois State Board of Education. Please find our most recent correspondence to families below, as well as important links to updates, prevention tips, and resources. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Remote Learning 
 “Remote learning is learning that happens outside of the traditional classroom because the student and teacher are separated by
 distance and/or time. Remote learning can be real-time or flexibility timed, and it may or may not involve technology” (ISBE, 2020).

MCHS Student Commitment Form Last night the MCHS District 111 Board of Education approved the MCHS 2020 Return to Learn plan. As a result, we are asking our families to provide the commitment of each of their children for the first semester of the 2020-21 school year by completing the 2020-21 MCHS Student Commitment Form. The form should be completed for each District 111 student.


Between today and the end of the week (Friday, July 31), we ask that you complete the 2020-21 MCHS Student Commitment Form to choose one of two educational opportunities for each child for the first semester of the 2020-21 school year. *Please note: If this form is not submitted for your child by July 31, the student will be registered in the Return to Learn Hybrid model.

At the end of the first semester, families will be asked if they want to continue their chosen learning model or change to a different model. The hybrid model is the recommended model for the majority of students. However, it is understood that learners have different academic, health, and emotional needs; therefore choice is available.
