Opening of School 2021-2022
Hello, and welcome to St. Anne School!
I wish to give you an update on several items in regard to how things will operate this school year. Please know that any procedural decisions that are made or changed are done so with the highest regard and commitment to doing everything we can to provide for the overall health of your child/children, as well as everyone’s children, our school staff, and our school on the whole.
All Reopening, Procedural, and School Health Plans will remain fluid and be adapted/adjusted accordingly as health requirements change or if/when specific needs arise.
I can assure you our entire staff is committed to working through things and will strive to ensure things eventually run as smoothly and as normal as possible.
Below are the guidelines developed by the Diocesan Catholic Education Office for the opening of our Catholic schools and religious education programs for the 2021-2022 school year. The Catholic Education Office is firmly committed to providing solid faith-filled academic and religious education programs in a safe environment.
The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) has recently issued guidelines, adopting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for our return to school in the fall.
The following is a summary of the critical information included in the new CDC guidelines:
As we start this school year, please know that, while stressful for all of us, we have a distinct advantage in this chaotic time. We know that if we stick together, have faith, turn to our Lord in times of trouble, and continuously focus on what is best for our children and our families, we will persevere.
In these times of great adversity our strength as individuals of faith, as members of the St. Anne School/Parish Community and as God's Children, will emerge.
Please know that I speak for everyone at St. Anne School in that we are truly blessed to be serving your children and your families.
