2021-2022 Pekin CSD - "Return / Ready-to-Learn Plan"

August, 2021

FROM: Mr. Hatfield, Superintendent of Schools 

TO: Pekin Community School District Stakeholders

It is exciting to think that we are about to start of another school year! I hope our students, families and staff have had the opportunity to rejuvenate after a challenging 2020-21 school year. As of the date of this communication, the Pekin Community School District will provide face-to-face instruction for each day at the start of the school year.

  • Online registration is available at this time
  • First Day of School - Thursday, August 26, 2021 

As superintendent, I will remain vigilant regarding the health and well-being of our students, staff and families. It is clear that COVID-19 infection rates are climbing across the country, particularly in areas where vaccination rates are low. The Delta variant, which is more transmissible than previous versions of the virus, is to blame for much of this spread.

With the above concerns in mind, the district will continue to implement deep cleaning and elevated sanitation measures. We will remain in close communication with county health officials, the Iowa Department of Education, and State of Iowa officials as well. 

Ultimately, when we minimize disruptions to our learning environments, we significantly enhance our ability to positively impact the lives and learning of our students!

Mr. Hatfield

Go Panthers!
