USD #377 is proud to have provided on-site and in-person learning for all students throughout the 2020-2021 school year. Extensive planning by both school personnel and community members is attributed to the successful reopening of schools after the closure in the Spring of 2020. Numerous plans, protocols and procedures were developed, implemented and revised during the entire 2020-2021 school year. These plans, protocols and procedures were rescinded and school ended with none in place. Moving forward, USD #377 plans to operate as we did prior to the closure but also use what we have learned to improve.
This plan is a working document, and we will continue to revise and it reflect changes as necessary. If you wish to make public comment regarding this plan, please contact Dr. Andrew Gaddis at 913-833-5050 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
