Second Trimester Updates

Time Schedule Change

At our October 21st School Board meeting, it was decided that Peru Elementary School District will continue to run the same blended schedule, with slight modifications, until further notice.  This decision was based on our local and area COVID positivity rates as well as district statistics.  

Due to our commitment to social distancing and the fact that students are doing a great job with masks and following social distancing practices, no COVID-19 cases have been traced back to our buildings at this time.  We sincerely appreciate your efforts and cooperation in making sure that students are not attending school when they or a household member has COVID symptoms. 

Second Trimester Schedule

Our schedules will be slightly adjusted for our second trimester.  We will be lengthening the school day on student in-person attendance days to our normal early release schedule. Starting November 9th, our In-person Blended Learning schedules will be as follows:

Health and Safety Protocol Reminders

Temperature & Symptoms Checks

All students will have their temperature taken upon arrival at school or prior to entering the bus at their bus stop. Parents of PreK-2nd grade students must accompany students to the bus stop and stay with them until they get on the bus in case a fever is noted and the student must stay home that day.  Students who demonstrate a temperature over 100.4° will not be allowed to enter the bus or enter the school building.  Students who show symptoms or have a temperature over 100.4° while at school will be sent to the office and parents will immediately be contacted.

Please note temperature check procedures may vary due to colder outdoor temperatures affecting the thermometers.

Social Distancing and Masks

  • Students and staff will be required to wear masks covering the nose and mouth.
  • Students and staff will maintain social distance of 6 feet from one another as best as possible.
  • Short outside mask breaks will be provided during the day while maintaining more than 6 feet distance. 
  • Face shields may be worn by students and staff if they choose, but a face mask will still be required under the face shield.
  • Parents should contact their building principal if their child has a medical condition that may prevent them from wearing a face mask.
