Good afternoon parents and families of Oglesby School District 125, I just wanted to send out a notice in recognition of all the hard work of the district and families to be as successful as we have been with our return this school year. Today we have reached midterm report time. It is a lot of effort on everyoneโ€™s behalf to make sure that we are able to be safe and provide for our students during this time whether it be in person or remote. We appreciate your efforts in making sure screenings take place daily and that you are checking on your studentโ€™s progress through remote learning. This is a great district because of the efforts of all of you. I appreciate all of your efforts and hope that you can spend some quality time over this extended three-day weekend with hopefully beautiful weather. Michael Pillion, Superintendent

Oglesby Public Schools' Reopening Plan Good afternoon parents and families of Oglesby School District 125, On Monday, August 3rd, we have final registration, as well as the release of a survey for which path you would like your child to take during the re-opening of the school year. In order to have a better understanding of the re-opening, we have released a more detailed re-opening plan so you can better understand some of the guidance that has been set forth and how it will shape our beginning of the school year. This plan is put together based upon the information and guidance we have today and is subject to change. The plan was put together with the help of many people including medical experts, administration, faculty, staff, board members, parents and survey information. Everyone had the safety of all involved at the forefront when working through the guidance and the plans. At the end of the plan, you will see a FAQ section that we will update from time to time to take care of some of the questions that have been sent our way.
