Dear D101 Community,
We are at the conclusion of what has been a most interesting (school) year. We were pleased to celebrate our graduating eighth-graders last week in a new and creative manner through the streets of Western Springs and we look forward to putting positive closure to the year for all of our students over the next couple of days.
We have also started the process of more formally looking forward to a return to school this fall. While the prospects of that return are strewn with many unknowns, some degree of clarity has begun to appear relative to where we stood just one month ago. To that end, we have attached the following Fall 2020 Blueprint Preview document to share our preliminary planning with you, although we are sure it is a document that will be revised in response to guidance and parameters released by the Governor, ISBE and IDPH, prior to our ultimate return in August.
Finally, thank you! Our parents have always been unbelievably supportive and valued by all of us in District 101, but never more than over the past many weeks.
On behalf of everyone in D101, I wish you and your families all the best this summer. We look forward to seeing you and your children in August!
Brian Barnhart, Superintendent
