A Return-to-Learn draft was shared with the Bushnell-Prairie City Board of Education during their regular meeting on Wednesday, October 21. District leadership team members are working to develop a plan that would have B-PC students back in school for in-person learning, full-time, at the beginning of 2nd semester in January and hope to have a final plan ready to share in November. More information provided as available.
The end of 1st quarter is October 22. With students returning to in-person learning the next day on October 23, teachers have asked for additional time to give students adequate time to submit work and to make sure they have all work accurately recorded. As such, grades won't be finalized in Skyward until Thursday, October 29.
Due to the sudden increase in positivity rate for COVID-19 in McDonough County, the Illinois Department of Public Health is increasing access to free testing. See the flyer below to see when you can get free COVID-19 testing at Bushnell-Prairie City High School. As of today, Friday, October 16, McDonough County has been placed on Warning status.
As shared via Skylert issued earlier this evening. Our district is experiencing an outbreak of COVID-19 that has impacted many departments, Food Services in particular, and has resulted in our return to remote learning. Through the generosity and assistance of Abingdon-Avon Superintendent Mike Curry and their Food Services Director and staff we are making arrangements to have food delivery for interested B-PC families on Wednesday, October 14. If interested in receiving a food delivery, please complete this form. So thankful for great neighbors! You rock, A-Town!
Public Service Announcement: Just received our bi-weekly COVID-19 update hosted by the McDonough County Health Department and includes information from McDonough District Hospital, Western Illinois University, and the Emergency Services Disaster Agency for McDonough County. Unfortunately, our region is trending upward again. Of greater concern is that Bushnell, specifically, is reporting an increase in positive cases from last week to this week, in particular among our most senior folks. The positivity rate in a community is the leading metric for school districts. Stay safe and healthy everyone.
