On January 22 the governor and state health officials provided updated guidance that will allow for more sports opportunities to start moving forward for Illinois schools. Currently the district has a plan for extra-curricular sports that is posted on our district website at www.gowestville.org. Next week the governing bodies for junior high and high school sports each have a board of directors meeting on Wednesday January 27. After the IESA and IHSA board of directors meetings, the district may update plans in accordance to any decisions that are made. In the meantime the district will proceed with the plans that have been laid out until more is known. Right now we want to wait until those meetings happen before we tweak any of our current plans. After their meeting hopefully we will have a better understanding of the real impact for our school sports. In general, it is all very encouraging for increased opportunities this spring and we will provide updated information and plans as soon as we know more.

The IESA, which governs elementary and junior high sports, has made a decision to cancel junior high baseball and softball for this fall. At this time all junior sports activities for the district will be suspended until more decisions are made about junior high and elementary sports potentially occurring later in the school year. This temporary suspension will apply to summer activities for junior and elementary students at Westviille, but will NOT impact high school activities at this point. Incoming freshmen may continue to participate in scheduled high school activities. We understand the disappointment this will create for our students and families and will continue to seek safe solutions in the future. Thank you for your support of Westville Schools.

Update on School Closure and Westville School District Plan Moving Forward: Westville School District will be in session for students on Monday March 16 with an early dismissal schedule (11:20 for WHS/WJHS and 11:55 for Giacoma). This will be the last day of normal student attendance before the mandatory school closure that will begin March 17 thru March 30. The purpose of this short student attendance day on Monday will be for students to have access to any resources, medicines, study materials, coats, and other personal effects they may need before the mandatory closure. Parents with concerns revolving around the events related to the spread of Coronavirus may choose to keep their student at home. Students will not be penalized if they do not report to school. There will be no school lunch provided during the short day on Monday. School breakfast will be provided as normal. All extra-curricular practices, activities, events, and parent/teacher conferences will be temporarily suspended until more direction is provided about the return to normal school activities. An email will be sent to faculty and staff later this weekend to plan for staff activities on Monday. More information will be provided as this situation develops. The district Facebook page will be a good place to find information that is being shared on our website, but it will not be an area where the district will be able to respond to questions, and we are aware there will be many to follow. Thank you for your support of Westville Schools during this time of caution for our collective health. With patience and level-headed action, our students and community will move forward for the better.

Westville School District will be conducting a 2-minute barricade drill at each school today. These drills are part of the district's ongoing commitment to safety and security. This is a short reminder to students on how to secure a room if needed during a potentially violent critical incident. Teachers will then debrief with age appropriate talking points to remind students of procedures from our emergency operations plan. Law enforcement will be monitoring these drills. Thank you for your support for safe schools at Westville School District.
