Quarter 4 Return to In-person Learning

In Person Instruction

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Illinois is operating under a five-phase plan referred to as Restore Illinois. Under Phase 4 of Restore Illinois, Illinois schools can return to in-person instruction by adhering to guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).

Arlyn School is committed to providing in-person instruction for its students during the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year while following the safety standards recommended by the IDPH. To ensure the health and safety of students, staff, and the school community, students are expected to cooperate with all Arlyn School safety protocols at school and school-related activities.

Arlyn School students are expected to return to school for in-person instruction on a full-time basis on April 13, 2021, unless directed otherwise by IDPH or in the case that Arlyn School determines that a student cannot attend school safely.

Arlyn school will re-visit our in-person service delivery plan on a monthly basis. We will continue to monitor COVID-19 responses in our serving districts.
