Pikeland Families, Earlier today, Governor Pritzker issued an executive order requiring residents to “stay at home” effective Saturday, March 21 at 5:00 pm, through the end of April 7. As part of the Governor’s order, he announced that school will remain closed, with a new tentative reopening date of April 8. We recognize that this development may raise questions about the impact on students, staff, and families. We anticipate further guidance and details from the Illinois State Board of Education next week, and will update you when we know more. During this time, we will continue to make food through our Snack Pack program available to students and are working to increase what we can safely offer in the next two weeks. Our district covers 326 square miles and delivering hot and cold foods to all of our communities is a challenge. We are continuing to work with our stakeholders to find additional ways to safely serve our students. We will have an announcement early next week about our Wednesday Snack Pack deliveries. In addition, the governor has made it clear that, while he’s serious about using social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19, he wants residents to still be able to work, shop at grocery stores, put gas in their cars, take walks outside and get medication from the pharmacy. Please use this opportunity to focus on staying safe and helping to slow the spread of the virus. As always, thank you for your patience and support as we all work through the COVID-19 Pandemic. As you have seen, this situation is evolving rapidly and we will continue to communicate information as we receive it. Central office will continue to be staffed Monday through Friday from 8:00-1:00. Please call if you have questions or need to find resources. We will do our best to help you. With Saukee Pride, Paula Hawley Superintendent

Let me start by saying that there is no playbook for doing what we are doing. The game and the rules change daily. Times like these require us to think on our feet and certainly outside of the box! Over the past few days we have had tremendous support from our staff, families, and communities to help get student learning in place while still being aware of the implications and restrictions imposed on us by the COVID-19 Coronavirus. On Wednesday of this week and next, the Pikeland Snack Pack program in conjunction with the Pikeland School District will be at 11 locations in the district handing out grab and go snack pack/meal bags of non-perishable items from 4:30-6:00. This will be a quick pickup process with bags delivered to each vehicle as you arrive.Please stay in your cars when picking up bags, and we will ask for student names as you receive your bag. There will be one bag per family but we will be flexible with families with a large number of kids. Pick up points on Wednesday from 4:30-6:00 will be: Baylis--Post Office Detroit/Florence--Detroit Christian Church Milton--Christian Church Nebo--Old School New Hartford/Summer Hill-- Ackles New Salem--Post Office Pearl--Jiffi Stop Rockport--Community Center Time-Park Square PIttsfield--Nazarene Church Community Center Pittsfield--Crossroads Center We will post any changes to the program here as we move through the next week. If you have specific needs, please contact us and we will help you in whatever way we can. We can be reached at 217-285-2147 M-F from 8:00-1:00. Paula Hawley Pikeland Schools
