Stay At Home Update on E-Learning and Food Service

posted Mar 23, 2020, 8:28 AM by Kathy Hutchins

On March 20, 2020, Governor Pritzker issued a “Stay at Home Order” through at least April 7, 2020.  Unfortunately, we anticipate that this will be further extended.  During this time, we will continue to provide learning activities to our students.  Illinois State Board of Education has stated to Districts that schools may allow student work to count during the closure ONLY to increase a student’s academic standing.  Therefore, any student work completed will be used to raise a student’s grade.  If you have any questions regarding specifics, please contact your child’s teacher or principal.  

In regards to food service, during the “Stay at Home Order”, lunch service will continue to be provided for all children age 18 or younger.  However, we do have a change in procedure.  Pick up location will only be at the Athens High School parking lot.  In addition, lunches will be available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  On Monday, each child will receive two lunches, on Wednesday each child will receive two lunches and on Friday each child will receive one lunch.  This should help reduce exposure for everyone.  Lunch pick up time will remain from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm.  If you have any questions, please email Lisa Long at
