An Important Reminder about Lanyards, ID's & MasksThe following reminders are an important factor in keeping students and staff safe in our buildings.Lanyards & ID's:When students arrived at school, it is important that they are wearing their school lanyard with ID. Having students wear their school lanyards and IDs allows us to identify students at a glance and enables us to recognize any person who should not be on our campus. The expectation is that the lanyard and ID will be worn and is visible. It is not acceptable to just have them in one's possession.Masks:The CDC recommends that you wear masks in public settings around people who don’t live in your household. Masks are a critical step to help prevent people from getting and spreading COVID-19. The following steps are from the CDC on how to correctly wear a mask:
D86 would like every students and staff member to take the time to wear their masks correctly. By following the simple guidelines that the CDC has in place, it will make our school environment safer for everyone.We appreciate and thank everyone for following these reminders.
- Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before putting on your mask.
- Put the mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin.
- Fit the mask snugly against the sides of your face, slipping the loops over your ears or tying the strings behind your head.
- If you have to continually adjust your mask, it doesn’t fit properly, and you might need to find a different mask type or brand.
- Make sure you can breathe easily.
It is always essential during the summer break to leave your Chromebook charging at all times when not in use. Please charge your Chromebook nightly to ensure the battery life maintains its maximum performance. Battery life is extended when the Chromebook is consistently charged, and for no less than 30 minutes at a time. Leaving the Chromebook plugged in for 6 hours allows the battery to recalibrate and take a full charge.

During the board of education meeting on July 22, Superintendent Tammy Prentiss provided an update on our return to school plan for the 2021-22 school year.
District 86 is asking community members to contact state leaders and encourage them to adopt a more logical and reasonable approach for managing COVID-19 in schools that will create a safe but less restrictive learning environment for students and staff.
People can schedule COVID-19 vaccination appointments on May 20 or 26 for students who are 12 or older.
