Somonauk Bobcat Families,

Happy New Year and welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year!  In late November, the DeKalb County Health Department recommended and the Somonauk School Board approved an adaptive pause of in-person teaching and learning.  From November 30, 2020, through January 18, 2021, we moved to full remote teaching and learning to ensure the safety and health of our students, staff, and community.  

Earlier this week at a meeting with local health officials from the DeKalb County Health Department to revisit the adaptive pause, they reported that we did not have the increase in COVID-19 cases after Thanksgiving that was feared.  They also stated that there has been a slight increase in positive cases post-Christmas but not at the level that triggered the adaptive pause.  Based on these facts and the fact that vaccinations are arriving weekly in the county, the Health Department did not recommend an extension of the adaptive pause which is set to expire on January 18, 2021.

Somonauk School District #432 students will return to hybrid/blended learning.  BLUE students will attend in-person on Tuesday, January 19, 2021, and GOLD students will attend in-person on Wednesday, January 20, 2021. 

It is of utmost importance to complete the health certification form for your child(ren) each morning prior to sending him/ her to school.  It is also important to report any symptoms he/she may have or if he/she were determined to be a close contact to a COVID-19 positive case to the school district.  Furthermore, please remember that if your child is exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, please keep him/ her home and any other children within the household.   

We are looking forward to having the students back in the buildings. We assure you that we will continue to use the protocols that we were using effectively prior to the adaptive pause to keep students and staff safe.

Sincerely,

Jay Streicher

Superintendent, Somonauk School District #432
