Dear D87 Parents and Guardians,
I trust that you have been able to enjoy this summer despite the many challenges caused by the pandemic crisis. Many thanks for your patience and support as we have navigated through a challenging opening of the school year planning process due to slow, inconsistent and sometimes confusing guidelines and mandates distributed by state agencies.
After a careful and intentional design process, we are confident that the D87 Restore Illinois Phase Four 4 School Day Plan will meet the needs of all students and families. See the D87 Restore Illinois Phase Four 4 School Day Plan and FAQ. The plan includes the following strengths and advantages:
Parents and guardians of each D87 high school will have the opportunity to hear an overview of the plan in a webinar format at the following times:

Glenbard South – Wednesday, July 29, at 6 p.m.

Directions or Transition programs – it is recommended that you join one of the webinars listed above. Directions Principal Raquel Wilson or Transition Supervisor Dawn Langdon will contact you separately to gather input/feedback on the 2020-21 plan.
As the plan is reviewed during the webinar, there will be an opportunity for parents and guardians to submit questions and ideas that will help in future planning and additions to the FAQ.
Your principal will send a follow-up email with access information for your school’s webinar.
