This afternoon Governor J.B. Pritzker extended school closures for all public and private schools in
Illinois until April 30. This order does affect South Beloit School District. All South Beloit Schools will now be closed until April 30. We anticipate schools to reopen on May 1.
During this time and until April 30, South Beloit Schools will be continuing with remote learning that
started on March 30. Teachers will be assigning work to their students thru electronic sites, email, or paper packets. Assignments will be graded. However, the district will be following the recommendation from the Illinois State Board of Education and grading all assignments using a pass/ incomplete grading system for the second semester. The traditional grading system of A thru F will not be used in the second semester due to the Corona Virus health situation. I understand this is a unique time for all. Please know the district is available to answer any of your questions. All school offices are open from 8am to 11am each weekday. Please call your child’s school office when you have a question. Teachers are also available thru email to answer questions about assignments. Thank you for your time and know the district will keep updating parents thru its All- Call system and district web-site as new information is given by the State of Illinois.
