Thursday, February 25, 2021 – 6:30 p.m. (20-21 School Year Update #101)

Dear Families of Frankfort CUSD #168:

     We’ve almost made it through this week of Hybrid / In-Person Learning one day to go.  Please continue to check with your individual school sites to make sure you know which instructional schedule day we are using. 

     Remember our breakfast continues to be served at school and lunch continues as “Grab and Go” for in-person learners.  Then, for our remote learners, they will continue to pick up food between 12 noon and 12:30 p.m. at the four schools each day school is in session or they can call their school before 10 a.m. to arrange for delivery.

     Finally, today we had the same numbers as yesterday with two students reporting positive COVID results with ten students under quarantine.  We also had no staff members reporting positive results with one under quarantine.

     Be safe until our post and call on Sunday evening.

Sincerely,
Matt Donkin
Superintendent of Schools

Attendance at FCHS Home Boys’ Basketball Games

     As we continue to follow guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois High School Association and with respect to our activities and contests as a member of the Southern Illinois River to River Conference, Frankfort Community High School continues to work to support all of our student-athletes and their families to the best of our ability. To this end, we are announcing an adjustment to our protocols in regard to attendance at FCHS Boys’ Basketball home games this season that will allow us to welcome two of each cheerleader’s immediate family members (i.e. parents, guardians, or grandparents) to attend.

     In order to accomplish this objective and not surpass spectator limits, we will follow this plan. For JUNIOR VARSITY games, each JV player will be allowed 2 immediate family members to attend the game. In addition, freshmen, sophomore, and junior cheerleaders will be allowed 2 immediate family members to also attend the JV game. Then, we must clear the gym of all spectators between games.

     For VARSITY games, only 2 immediate family members of varsity boys basketball players AND senior cheerleaders will be admitted into the gym.

For all games, per IDPH guidelines, all spectators will sit 30 feet from the court and must remain masked. 

     It is also our goal for cheer to perform on the court at the start of halftime of the Varsity game if both teams choose to utilize their locker rooms during halftime. (Due to IDPH/Illinois High School Athletic Association guidelines, boys and girls basketball teams do not have to use the locker rooms if they so choose.) Cheerleaders are welcome to perform to the Alma Mater. Again, due to IDPH/IHSA sideline spirit restrictions, they must “maintain at least 6 feet of social distance on the floor during routines, including when changing formations, and by prohibiting lifts, stunts, pyramids, and tosses as well as shared equipment (e.g., signs, flags, poms); avoid shouting, singing, and chanting.”

We are excited to see our student-athletes perform to the best of their abilities, albeit in a restricted fashion, due to the guidelines resulting from the pandemic.

Sincerely,

Jory Dial                                    Angie Jilek

Principal                                    Athletic Director

Sunday, February 21, 2021 – 7:00 p.m. (20-21 School Year Update #97)

Dear Families of Frankfort CUSD #168:

     While we watch the snow and ice turn into puddles and mud, we will return this week to our buildings and have a week of Hybrid / In-Person Learning beginning tomorrow on Monday, February 22.  Be aware that CJHS and FCHS will be on a GRAY schedule tomorrow.

     Since it’s been awhile since we’ve had what passes as a normal week, let me give a few reminders.

  • We are in-person on mornings 5 days a week.There is also remote time – office hours each afternoon.
  • Students who remain full remote will continue to participate in their learning activities as they have been.
  • For in-person learners, breakfast continues to be served at school and lunch will continue as “Grab and Go.”
  • For meals for remote learners, they will continue to pick up food between 12 noon and 12:30 p.m. at the four schools each day school is in session or they can call their school before 10 a.m. to arrange for delivery.

     As we gather everyone back together, we will again be updating everybody on COVID related numbers.  With the thawing outside and the hope of warmer days ahead, it’s going to be tempting to let loose.  We have made it to this point keeping spread at school to as small of a number as possible.  While vaccinations are in progress, we must continue our safe practices to make sure we get through this and get us closer to the day when all will be “normal” again.

     We will include a call across the District tonight.  However, unless we have some significant news to report, we will return to the daily postings on the website each night this week.  So, until tomorrow night, please be safe.

Sincerely,
Matt Donkin
Superintendent of Schools

Thursday, February 18, 2021 – 4:45 p.m. (20-21 School Year Update #96)

Dear Families of Frankfort CUSD #168:

     As a reminder, schools in Frankfort CUSD #168 will utilize a Full-Remote Learning Day tomorrow, Friday, February 19, 2021.  Students at Denning, Frankfort Intermediate, Central Junior High, and Frankfort Community High School will follow our normal remote routine.  Teachers will be posting assignments and information on their pages as we have on other full remote days.  CJHS and FCHS will be on a RED schedule on Friday.

     Because we already did Meal Distribution for the rest of this week, there will be no meal distribution tomorrow.  We thank everyone for a smooth process today.

     Then, all faculty and staff will report to their school buildings on Friday as we prepare for students to rejoin us on Monday.  Cafeteria staff will work in their kitchens to prepare for next week.  All other faculty and staff will be doing similar work to what we did last Friday.

     While on this remote schedule, IEP meetings will still be held remotely.  The special education coordinator for your students will be in contact with you to work out the details.

     So, to summarize, all students will be on a full remote schedule tomorrow.  There will be no meal distribution tomorrow as that has already happened for the week, and all faculty and staff will report to their school buildings for work tomorrow.

     Hopefully we are past the worst of the winter weather locally.  Our next posting will be on Sunday evening.  Until then, please be safe.

Sincerely,
Matt Donkin
Superintendent of Schools

Wednesday, February 17, 2021 – 4:45 p.m. (20-21 School Year Update #95)

Dear Families of Frankfort CUSD #168:

     This is a reminder from yesterday’s message and is in regards to our school schedule for the next two days – Thursday, February 18 and Friday, February 19, 2021.

     For the last two days of this week, schools in Frankfort CUSD #168 will utilize Full-Remote Learning Days.  Students at Denning, Frankfort Intermediate, Central Junior High, and Frankfort Community High School will follow our normal remote routine.  Teachers will be posting assignments and information on their pages as we have on other full remote days.  CJHS and FCHS will be on a GRAY schedule day on Thursday and a RED schedule on Friday.

     Because we did Meal Distribution today for the rest of this week, there will be no meal distribution tomorrow or Friday.  We thank everyone for a smooth process today.

     All faculty and staff (except for custodial staff who are already assigned), may work remotely from home on Thursday, February 18.  We will make a decision for Friday once we see what the next 24 hours of weather does.

     While on this remote schedule, IEP meetings will still be held remotely.  The special education coordinator for your students will be in contact with you to work out the details.

     So, to summarize, all students will be on a full remote schedule for the rest of this week.  There will be no meal distribution tomorrow or Friday as that has already happened for the week, and most faculty and staff will work remotely on Thursday.

     Please continue to be careful in these temperatures and with these road conditions.  We will post updates again tomorrow afternoon.  Until then, please be safe.

Sincerely,
Matt Donkin

Tuesday, February 16, 2021 – 4:45 p.m. (20-21 School Year Update #94)

Dear Families of Frankfort CUSD #168:

     We have the following information to release regarding our school schedule for the next three days – Wednesday, February 17; Thursday, February 18; and Friday, February 19, 2021.

     For the last three days of this week, schools in Frankfort CUSD #168 will utilize Full-Remote Learning Days.  Students at Denning, Frankfort Intermediate, Central Junior High, and Frankfort Community High School will follow our normal remote routine for all students.  Teachers will be posting assignments and information on their pages as we have on other full remote days.

     Meal Distribution for the rest of this week will happen tomorrow, Wednesday, February 17 from 11 a.m. to 12 noon at the HIGH SCHOOL ONLY.  Please pull up on North Locust Street on the east side of the high school near the kitchen doors and cafeteria staff will come out to serve you.

     All faculty and staff (except for custodial staff and those cooks who are already assigned), may work remotely from home on Wednesday, February 17 and Thursday, February 18.  We will make a decision for Friday once we see what the next 48 hours of weather does.

     While on this remote schedule, IEP meetings will still be held remotely.  The special education coordinator for your students will be in contact with you to work out the details.

     So, to summarize, all students will be on a full remote schedule for the rest of this week.  Meal distribution will take place at FCHS tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 12 noon, and most faculty and staff will work remotely on Wednesday and Thursday.

     Please continue to be careful in these temperatures and with these road conditions.  We will post updates again tomorrow afternoon.  Until then, please be safe.

Monday, February 15, 2021 – 4:45 p.m. (20-21 School Year Update #93)

Dear Families of Frankfort CUSD #168:

     On a memorable President’s Day, we have the following information to release regarding our school schedule for the next two days – Tuesday, February 16 and Wednesday, February 17, 2021.

     First, because weather and road conditions are to the point that officials want little to no traffic traveling on them this evening or in the morning, Frankfort CUSD #168 will use an Emergency Day tomorrow, Tuesday, February 16, 2021.  There will be NO school tomorrow, Tuesday, February 16, 2021.  Again, there will be no in-person and no remote learning tomorrow for students at Denning, Frankfort Intermediate, Central Junior High, or Frankfort Community High School on Tuesday, February 16, 2021.  You should also know that any IEP meeting scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, February 16, will be postponed.

     Then, everyone should plan to have a Full Remote Learning Day on Wednesday, February 17.  We will have announcements tomorrow afternoon regarding meal pick-up.  We will also alert staff to our work status for Wednesday in that announcement tomorrow afternoon.

     So, to summarize, there will be no in-person nor remote learning, tomorrow, Tuesday, February 16.  We plan to try again on Wednesday with remote learning and will make that announcement tomorrow afternoon.

     Finally, as we are receiving reports of cars off the road everywhere and emergency officials struggling to keep up, please don’t travel.  In addition, as much fun as the snow looks outside, keep in mind that temperatures are dangerously low and wind chill factors are below 0.  It will not take much to damage the skin or put individuals in harms way in a hurry.

     As we pass the 11-month mark of the pandemic, we’ve experienced a lot of historic days that will be referenced in the future.  Add this snow storm to that list.  Please be safe.  We will post again tomorrow afternoon.  Until then, please be safe.

Sincerely,
Matt Donkin
Superintendent of Schools

Tuesday, February 9, 2021 – 4:30 p.m.
(20-21 School Year Update #91 – Quarantine Protocol Update)

Dear Families of Frankfort CUSD #168:

     The District has continued to follow guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) as we have tried to navigate through this pandemic.  When they release guidance, we confer with staff at the Franklin-Williamson Bi-County Health Department to best implement it.  We have taken a conservative approach and then adjusted within the guidelines.

     The last guidance document and update came at the first of January when we were having Full-Remote Learning days.  There was guidance at that time for individuals who are asymptomatic and a close contact to a confirmed or probable COVID-19 case.  During the fall semester, the guidance was for those individuals to quarantine for 14 days.  While the IDPH continued to list 14 days as an option, they also did allow for a change that gave some shorter options under certain conditions and no symptoms.

     At that time, we made the decision to be cautious and stay with the 14-day quarantine for those individuals until we had some data on how in-person learning would affect our numbers.  We have now been in-person for four weeks.  While no cases would be ideal, our daily reporting has shown that we have been able to maintain our low numbers of both quarantines and positive cases.  In addition, we have not had reports of cases that have been from contacts at school.  That is a tribute to our students, our faculty, and our staff working together to follow safe practices.

     At this time, the District is going to follow IDPH guidance that relaxes quarantine time.  For students who are free of symptoms, they may return after 10 days.  For adults, they may also return from quarantine if free of symptoms after 10 days or they may utilize the 7-day option with testing.  Please note that students cannot “test out” of the 10-day quarantine.

     Again, we thank everyone for their efforts in keeping our case numbers low as we try to make it through these trying times.

Sincerely,
Matt Donkin
Superintendent of Schools

Sunday, February 7, 2021 – 7:10 p.m. (20-21 School Year Update #89)

Dear Families of Frankfort CUSD #168:

     We are still waiting for our vendor, Intrado, to make repairs to their system that hosts school websites like ours across the area, so we will post this message in as many places as we can.

     Tomorrow, Monday, there will be NO student attendance or virtual learning as we are having virtual Parent-Teacher Conferences from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.  Teachers at our schools have been reaching out to parents in order to meet.

     Then, we have managed both learning and now athletic activities this year under the guidance of the State of Illinois, the Illinois State Board of Education, and the Illinois Department of Public Health.  This is to ensure our venues are as safe as possible and our liabilities are reduced.  We have worked with both the IHSA and our junior high school athletic associations as well as our fellow schools in the Southern Illinois River to River and the Big Seven Conferences.  As changes have been made in the state guidelines regarding competitors and participants, we have worked with our fellow schools to make arrangements as best we can.  We wish for that day when we can open the doors and let everyone in.

     On behalf of our Athletic and Activities Department, we again have the information below to pass along for both FCHS and CJHS.

  • No more than 50 spectators will be allowed into home games.
  • Each player will receive two (2) tickets for family members to be admitted to games.
  • All spectators and media will enter through the main entrances and present their tickets.
  • Spectators and media will undergo a temperature and COVID screening upon entrance.
  • Spectators must wear a mask at all times and socially distance themselves from others not in their household.  Designated areas will be marked.
  • No away fans are allowed to attend games on the road.
  • No concessions will be sold.
  • Games will continue to be streamed.
  • Cheerleaders are considered as game day personnel and are not counted as participants or spectators.  They are very limited on what they can do (such as no shouting or stunting).  Cheerleaders will sit in designated seats.

     The Athletic Department is working with our coaches to get our ticket distribution plan out to players as soon as we can.

     We will post more information again tomorrow night.  Until then, please be safe and have a good night.

Sincerely,
Matt Donkin
Superintendent of Schools

     Do know that there will be no student attendance on Monday as we are having virtual Parent-Teacher Conferences from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.  Schools have been reaching out to parents in order to meet.

     We also announced that we would be posting athletic event information tonight.  We have been receiving updates to IDPH / IHSA guidance even late this afternoon.  On behalf of the Athletic and Activities Department, we have the information below to pass along for both FCHS and CJHS.

  • Each player will receive two (2) tickets for family members to be admitted to games.
