We know there are many questions regarding the return to school and Governor Kelly's executive orders (to require masks at school and delay the start of school until September 9).

Our district leaders and the USD 470 Return to School Task Force continue to take guidance from state officials along with input from our staff, students, and parents to formulate a plan for the 2020-2021 school year. This plan will be reviewed by our school board at its July 27 meeting.

While we remain flexible in our plans, we anticipate there being both on-site and remote learning models available. Regardless of which option you feel is your family's best fit, you may enroll your child in USD 470 at this time.

Online enrollment remains available via PowerSchool. To accommodate families who need assistance with the enrollment process, each school will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 27 and 28. For additional enrollment information, visit

We will continue to focus on the wellbeing of our students and staff as we plan for the new year. As we have updates, we will share them via and SchoolMessenger, our mass notification tool. Thank you for your continued patience and support!

The Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Program is a federally funded program which encourages children to try a variety of fruits and vegetables that they may not be familiar with.  The goal of the program is not only to to increase the consumption of fruits and vegetables but also to develop an awareness of the various types of fruits and vegetables available to us.  At the present time, we serve the “snack” on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week.  Please talk to your child about the different fruits and vegetables that they have tried and whether they liked them or not.  Your feedback about the program is appreciated.
