If your son/daughter plans on participating in softball, baseball, or cross country, please make sure he/she has a current sports physical done before try-outs. Right now we are looking at try-outs to be anytime after July 22. We are still waiting on a decision from SIJHSAA to go forward with Fall Sports.

Illinois has extended the stay at home order until at least April 30th. There are many “unknowns” for schools moving forward from that date. We will share information as we get it. What that means for us at Raccoon is this: We will continue with remote learning through the end of the week (Friday, April 3rd). Students will have next week off. Teachers will be using next week as Remote Learning Planning Days. We will expect students to back to learning on Monday, April 13th. This a a day earlier than previously announced. Students need to continue to check in with teachers regularly. If you have not been in contact with your child’s teacher you should do so very soon. Work students have completed during Remote Learnkng Days will be credited to the students. It is important that all students attempt to complete work. We will update parents weekly regarding change and new State guidance. We are now seeing COVID-19 move into our area so please take precautions over the next several months. If you avoid public contact it is better for everyone. Mr. Renaud

Good morning! We will be leaving the school at 10:30 with the parade of cars. We will be following the bus routes and delivering lunches, some chrome books, and curriculum. If your child is in 1st, 3rd or 4th grade you will have multiple books delivered so please be watching. If you are not home we will leave work in mailboxes. Please keep children from running up to the cars as we want to keep them as safe and healthy as possible. As a reminder, if you live on a dead end road or long driveway, you may choose to come up to the main road to wave to teachers and pick up packets. Hope to see lots of our little friends out!

Good morning. I have been waiting to give an update to you this week in hopes that we would have new guidance from the State Board of Education regarding additional closure days and how school work will look moving forward after spring break. Unfortunately, we do not have new information, but we are moving forward with a plan to serve our students with the best information available. Please understand, this is subject to change. Here’s what you need to know: 1. We will continue working on the original packets sent home by your child’s teacher through the end of the day on April 3rd. Remember, this work was designed to be review and will not hurt your child’s grades. 2. We will observe Spring Break from April 6-13. No work is expected, but you may be getting updates from your child’s teachers. We will continue to serve breakfast and lunch during the Spring Break. 3. We are planning for Governor Pritzker to close schools for additional weeks after Spring Break. The State Board has told us to begin to work with parents and students to introduce new curriculum. This is going to pose a challenge, but we will be working to get this done. In order to do this, students will need access to WiFi. Most homes have access. The Raccoon Board of Education is working to secure hot spots to provide WiFi for students who do not have access at home. A signed waiver will be required to obtain one from the school. Students without a device will be provided one by the school. Most students have a school email address. Please be checking this email address frequently for updates. You can also expect contact from your child’s teachers via other methods. You may be asked to learn how to use Google Classroom. We anticipate that the days following Spring Break will require students/parents to log into Teacher Ease to verify attendance. We also anticipate that school work will count toward a grade. More guidance on all of the above will be forthcoming. Any needed devices or curriculum will be delivered to homes on Tuesday’s or Friday’s using our regular bus routes. 4. We know that these weeks have been trying and stressful for parents. We are working to move more of the work load back to student-teacher interaction. If you will spend the necessary time helping your child get set up and organized it will pay off in the long term for you at home by making them less dependent on your help. 5. Finally, thank you for your continued efforts and patience. We appreciate our Raccoon Community and miss all of our kids. M. Renaud

We have 2 confirmed cases of chickenpox, one in 4th grade and one in Pre-K. Please do not panic! Frequently Asked Questions: If my child has been vaccinated can they still get chickenpox? Yes, but less likely and usually a more mild case. What are the signs and symptoms? Itchy rash of blisters, fever, headache, feeling tired. Can chickenpox be serious? Not usually, but can be for babies, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems. How does chickenpox spread? The virus is spread by the infected person breathing, coughing, sneezing or touching another individual who is susceptible to the infection. What should I do if I suspect my child has chickenpox? KEEP THEM HOME and call your pediatrician. Please call me at the school with any questions or concerns. Thanks, Nurse Inlow

For students who participated - Wednesday and Thursday Miles of Smile came and all students saw the dentist, but due to time constraints there were some who didn't get to have their teeth cleaned and/or sealants done. Miles of Smiles will be back Tuesday February 25th to finish those students. If your child received a yellow packet, please fill it out and return to me ASAP. Miles of Smiles will be back Wednesday March 25th to do fillings, x-rays, etc. If your child received a red sheet, that means they need to be seen by a Dentist ASAP to have work completed that is too extensive to be done at the school. If you need help finding a dentist, please contact me. Thanks! Have a GREAT weekend!

We are proud of our Raccoon Blue Devils basketball team as they had a great season, but were defeated Saturday at Rend Lake. Great sportsmanship was displayed even as we ended our season. They fought until the end and everyone was cheering them on. Great season RGS!
