Dear City of St. Charles School District families,
I truly hope your spring break has brought you time to be with family, get some rest, and for everyone in your household to stay healthy. At this time, in collaboration with the St. Charles County Department of Public Health and Government, our school district closure will be extended through Friday, April 24th. We will remain in close contact with the Department of Public Health and will reassess the situation closer to April 24th to decide what our next steps will be.
Virtual instruction for grades 7-12 and learning packets for PreK-6th are still set in place for next week, March 30-April 3. We are now preparing for extended, virtual learning for all grades starting on April 6th. More specific information will be coming soon on Chromebook pick-up for K-6 grades, virtual learning platforms, daily schedules, and more. If you haven’t yet, we would like for our K-6 families to take the following technology survey so we can provide Chromebooks as needed. Please click here to take the K-6th technology survey (students in grades 7-12 already have access to District issued Chromebooks). Also, please don’t forget to take time to access this calendar of virtual field trips that our team has created to extend your child’s learning at home.
We want to remind you that breakfast/lunch (in one bag) is still available at no charge (drive-thru/grab n go) to all District families at the Blackhurst and Monroe pick up locations through the entire closure. Matthias' Lot Church (636-388-8242) is also continuing to deliver meals to families that need assistance.
Also, I’m so proud of the work our facilities (custodial/maintenance) staff has accomplished with the deep cleaning and disinfecting all of our schools/property. Our buildings will be ready for students and staff to return as soon as we're able to.
The extended closure brings many questions and uncertainty. Please trust and know that we will continue to keep you fully informed of the decisions and plans that are made as we continue to navigate this uncharted path. Messages from district administration, building principals, and teachers will all continue to fully connect with you and your children. We want you to know and feel that we’re all in this together, step by step. Further decisions on end of the year activities and events will be fully vetted, collaborated on, and clearly communicated with you as we move forward.
