Dear District 118 Family:

     I hope that this new year finds you happy and healthy.  It was our plan to return to our Blended Learning Program on January 11, 2021 but due to the increased number of COVID‐19 exposures and positive cases in Vermilion County over the past two weeks, District 118 will continue a fully remote program until January 25, 2021. If positivity rates in Vermilion County permit, we will resume our blended learning program on Tuesday, January 26, 2021.

Important Notice
ACCESS Test for English Learners Pushed from Possible Start Date of Jan. 4 To No Sooner Than March 15 …

The original administration window for the ACCESS test, which measures the proficiency of English Learners in reading, writing, speaking and listening, would have allowed schools to begin testing as early as Jan. 4. ISBE has announced a decision which ensures no student will take a federally required assessment, including ACCESS, until March 15 at the earliest.  Due to this announcement, our original notice regarding the start of District 118’s ACCESS testing has been postponed.  Thank you.

El examen de ACCESO para estudiantes de inglés pasado de la fecha de inicio posible del 4 de enero a no antes del 15 de marzo…

La ventana de administración original para la prueba ACCESS, que mide el dominio de los estudiantes de inglés en lectura, escritura, habla y escucha, habría permitido a las escuelas comenzar a realizar pruebas desde el 4 de enero. ISBE ha anunciado una decisión que garantiza que ningún estudiante tomará una evaluación federal requerida, incluido ACCESS, hasta el 15 de marzo como muy pronto. Debido a este anuncio, nuestro aviso original sobre el inicio de los exámenes de ACCESS del Distrito 118 ha sido pospuesto. Gracias.

Help Prevent Teen Dating Violence
An Illinois law aimed at preventing unhealthy dating relationships requires upper-elementary, middle schools and high schools to incorporate age appropriate education about teen dating violence into their curriculum. As a result, beginning this school year, our schools will be teaching students the signs and symptoms of an unhealthy relationship, how to respond, and who to notify. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that one in eleven adolescents say they have been the victim of physical dating violence. Healthy or unhealthy relationship habits may develop early. High school students report that they see dating violence among their peers. Dating violence during teen years can lead to unhealthy relationships. This may disrupt normal development and can contribute to other destructive behaviors in our children. If you would like more information about teen dating violence, please contact the building principal, social worker, or guidance counselor. 

Erin’s Law

Erin’s Law is named after childhood sexual assault survivor, author, speaker and activist Erin Merryn. Erin’s Law (in Illinois, Public Act 96-1524) mandates that Illinois public schools provide training to certified staff on prevention of child sexual abuse. It also mandates that public school children pre-kindergarten through 12th grade be educated on how to protect themselves from sexual abuse. Students learn age-appropriate techniques to recognize child sexual abuse and tell a trusted adult. School personnel learn about child sexual abuse. Any questions or concerns can be addressed by building administrators, guidance counselors or school social worker.
