Planning Ahead To Return Strong

Northbrook / Glenview School District 30 is preparing for a smooth transition to five days of in-person instruction in the fall while following critical health and safety guidelines from the state.

What we currently know about the fall:

  • Returning to schedules for five days a week of in-person instruction
  • Rotating through classes will occur with set seating charts
  • Resuming athletics & activities
  • Using hallway lockers and sharing materials to resume.
  • Providing instructional options for students while they are under quarantine, consistent with local and state health guidance

Additional planning includes:

  • Working on Board Goal 2 that incorporates social-emotional support that responds to COVID-19 impacts, including establishing routines and services to assist students in their return to school as we leverage phased operations lessons and continue our focus on academic growth
  • Hiring three additional Instructors to ensure 3’ between students within classrooms
  • Installing bipolar ionization systems in every classroom univent and air handler across all District 30 buildings

Here are some helpful reminders to prepare for this school year!
