Principal's Message

March 11, 2021

Dear TF South Parents and Guardians,

The District 215 Board of Education, at the recommendation of Superintendent Dr. Sophia Jones-Redmond, voted on a plan for the fourth quarter of the 2020-2021 school year. District 215 staff will report to school buildings no later than March 25th but can voluntarily report to buildings beginning March 15th. The plan grants teachers planning days for March 25th and 26th, and students will not log on for virtual instruction those days.

Beginning Monday, March 29th, teachers will conduct remote learning from classrooms. District 215 has spring break scheduled for April 2-11, and administrators are working on a plan that will bring students to the buildings the week of April 12th for state-mandated testing. The week of April 19th, students opting for in-person learning who are part of the district’s special education programs will return to buildings, along with freshmen and seniors who have opted for in-person learning. The week of April 26, sophomores and juniors who opt for in-person learning will return to buildings. Student Support Wednesdays will continue remotely for staff and students to allow for deep cleaning of the buildings. No faculty or students will report to buildings on Wednesdays.
