Frankfort parents asked to choose by midnight Tuesday: Online or In-Person learning


Share post:

Parents in Frankfort have been given a choice: Have their kids learn in-person, or at home. Parents must chooses for their students or the upcoming school year by midnight on Tuesday.

A deadline for the decision was given to parents following the Frankfort School District 157-C Board of Education announcement this past week after a July 15th special meeting for the 2020-2021 school year.

Any parents reportedly opting to choose online learning could move their students back into the class room for in-person learning at quarter breaks.

Regardless of their choice, all students could be required to move to online learning across the state should Illinois step backwards in the Restore Illinois plan.  We are currently in Phase 4 of the reopening, but government officials have said on multiple occations they will not hesitate to move the state backwards.

A step backwards in the plan would recall children to their homes in Phase 3.  In a recent District survey, 87 percent of Frankfort families said they are planning to send their children to school this fall.

Since the pandemic began, there have been 213 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the 60423 zip code. In person registration will proceed as normal online, with remote learning options linked at the school’s website.
