July 15 – Governor Kelly’s Announcement
As you may be aware, Governor Kelly announced today (July 15th) at 3:00 pm that schools will not be permitted to open until after Labor Day. Governor Kelly has also mandated masks in schools.
This change will impact USD 402 in a variety of ways as we prepare for the 2020-21 school year and we appreciate your patience as we work through the ripples of this announcement. This announcement will likely bring to mind a number of questions and "what if" scenarios. We will do our best to keep you informed going forward.
Our tentative return to school timeline, sent out earlier today, will be effected by this announcement and we will make adjustments.

The USD 402 Safe Return Task Force is working on plans for Augusta's return to school. It is important that the district share information, when available, on the process to better prepare and inform our community.
Below you will find a tentative timeline. This is the timeline that the task force and oversight groups will be operating under. With that said, it is important to understand that due to an ever changing environment, this timeline may be subject to change.
The district will continue to communicate as more information becomes available. Thank you for your support as we navigate through this challenging, ever-changing, environment.
We have received a number of positive, supportive, and encouraging messages from staff and parents. Your support means a lot to us.
