Staunton Schools Take Adaptive Pause
Staunton Schools Take Adaptive Pause
Staunton School District
Thursday, August 19, 2021

Staunton CUSD #6 Families:

This release is to inform you that Staunton School District will be closed for in person instruction through August 29, 2021 .  Based on current information,  students not under a quarantine order may return to school for in person instruction on Monday, August 30, 2021.   

Any Staunton student who attends a Mt. Olive or Gillespie classroom will be expected to attend school, as those districts are open for in person instruction.  

The School District has been in direct contact with the Macoupin County Public Health Department as well as the Illinois Department of Public Health regarding our recent increase in positive cases.  Due to the increase, the school district has been advised to implement an adaptive pause for in person instruction.  An adaptive pause for in person instruction will allow the school custodial staff time to thoroughly sanitize with the goal to help slow any further spread of COVID.  The adaptive pause means that all students will be full remote learning while the building is closed.  

The School District encourages all community members to maintain safe social distances, wear masks in public when social distancing cannot be maintained and wash your hands so that we may all help our students return to school safely. 

All students will follow the Full Remote Learning schedule listed below starting Monday, August 23rd.  All District teachers will utilize Schoology and/or have packets available for pick up on  Monday, August 23rd.  Friday, August 20th is a Remote Planning Day for staff to prepare materials for next week and students do NOT need to log in to Schoology.   

Effective immediately, all district extracurricular activities are canceled through Sunday, August 29th.  All coaches or sponsors will communicate with students about plans going forward.  

If you have questions or concerns, please contact an administrator by phone.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.  

Nancy Werden 

Interim Superintendent
