Updated information from Mark Doan, Unit 40 Superintendent:



Wednesday, April 1, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well.  On Wednesday, March 31st, Illinois Governor Pritzker announced that remote learning in Illinois will be extended through April 30, 2020 in order to slow down the spread of COVID-19. 

During this time, on-site learning will remain suspended but our schools’ commitment to learning and education will remain open and learning will continue for all students - just through a different format.

While it is not ideal, we want to assure you that Unit #40 teachers and staff will take on this new challenge and push forward with remote learning, engaging with students and continuing with our food distribution program. 

I know this is not the school year that any of us imagined, but I want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we have dealt with this unprecedented situation together. 

Here are the three priorities for our District moving forward:

Priority 1 - Feed and care for the extended safety, health, and welfare of students, families, staff, and community at large.

Priority 2 - Communicate clearly; share coherent, organized and controlled messages with your staff, students and community.

Priority 3 - Provide for the continuity of learning in Unit #40.


 Mr. Mark E. Doan

Effingham Unit #40
