• A Guide to Remote Learning in the 2020-2021 School Year

    Principal’s Message

    The 2020-2021 school year will be like no other in our history.  We face unprecedented challenges and an ever changing landscape.  While these challenges may seem overwhelming at times I strongly believe our school community has the resolve, grace, compassion and work ethic to meet and overcome these obstacles.  As we have planned for this school year we have kept the following priorities in mind:

    • The health, safety and well being of our students, staff and families.
    • The importance of learning, leading and living as the backbone of our school community.
    • Creating realistic expectations for our students, staff and families during these trying times.
    • Creating community in everything we do.

    Additionally, our process to reopen West Chicago Community High School has been informed by the guidelines, rules and regulations issued by the following governing entities.

    • Illinois State Board of Education
    • Illinois Department of Public Health
    • Dupage County Department of Public Health
    • Centers for Disease Control

    Our goals for this school year are no different than in past years.  We strive to create impactful lifelong learning for our students through experiences in learning, leading and living.  However, we must acknowledge that those experiences will look and feel different than ever before.  There will be times when we will all be frustrated at the drastic changes to the process of schooling we have all come to know.  That frustration may at times create strong reactions and that is understandable.  We will all work together this year to create understanding amongst one another as we build the best school experiences possible given the options available to us.  This manual is designed to answer many of the questions our community has around how school will look, feel and operate.  This manual will likely change as the guidelines and policies that direct our decisions will change.  We thank you in advance for your flexibility and understanding throughout the entire school year.

    Thank You and Go Wildcats!
