Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 will transition from hybrid to remote instruction for two weeks beginning October 21-November 4, 2020, implementing an Adaptive Pause in accordance with IDPH guidelines. The pause to in-person instruction comes because DuPage County has entered into Substantial Community Transmission. COVID-19’s presence in the community has increased to a level that stands to expose our families and staff to health risks. Expand this story for next steps.

For more than 40 years, the Elmhurst community has participated in the UCCA Holiday Food Drive to help Elmhurst District 205 school children and their families. To ensure everyone's safety, we are moving our efforts online.  Instead of bringing food donations to Edison School, you can go online and donate to sponsor a holiday meal, a box of food or more.  It's quick and easy.  Go to https://www.ucca-elmhurst.org

The start of the school year has been stressful for many families as parents struggle to balance work with remote and hybrid learning. Staff at the Elmhurst Park District and Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 have been working behind the scenes for weeks to come up with the best solution to help as many families as possible during this tough transition. 

Club Ed. is a new program for children K-5 that will offer a convenient, self-directed E-Learning opportunity at various D205 and Park District locations. This program will provide a structured schedule that alternates designated time for self-directed E-Learning and recreational activities including indoor/outdoor games, arts and crafts. Children will be in a group of 15 participants or less in a format that meets all CDC health and safety guidelines. Face coverings will be required at all times except while eating.

Since sending the survey July 17, people have reached out with requests for additional information to help them determine the best decision for their children. Therefore, we are including two additional pieces of information in this communication, which we hope will be helpful and have extended the deadline for responding to July 31 at 5 p.m. All responses will be considered final at that time, and you will receive an email from D205 confirming your submission after the results have been reviewed.

I hope you are safe and staying well amid what can only be described as trying and troubling times. The news of recent days is both disturbing and intolerable. Our District 205 Vision ensures that all students graduate life ready. Life ready graduates in today’s world must embrace tolerance and diversity. Our mission and belief statements articulate our commitment to all students. Today, we reaffirm our vision, mission and beliefs in the wake of the murder of George Floyd which has left the nation hurt, confused, and searching for answers. But, our vision, mission, and beliefs alone will not bring about the changes needed to help our students understand each other or create a culture where colleagues are treated with respect, and where an equitable education is a reality for all of our students regardless of their race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or ability.
