Please know the health and safety of our students and staff remains our top priority. We have been actively monitoring the outbreak of Coronavirus (Covid-19). To date there are no reports of cases involving Coronavirus disease COVID-19 in our area. A fifth case of Coronavirus COVID-19 has been confirmed in Illinois and all individuals infected are from in or around Chicago. Since late January, our Regional Office of Education has been working to ensure timely and accurate information is provided to the districts they serve related to Coronavirus (Covid-19). As a result, they have created a Google Drive Folder to provide school superintendents with up-to-date information to assist them in making informed decisions for their respective districts (we have been receiving daily updates since this started). Also, starting next week (March 9th), they will be on a weekly call with the Tazewell County Health Department to remain informed of this ever-evolving situation and pass along updates to us. In addition, on March 12th the Regional Office of Education #53 and Public Health Administrators will host an informational meeting on Covid-19/Coronavirus for local school district administrators. We are grateful to our parents for promoting healthy habits at home with their children. Please keep reminding your children of these: (1) Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. (2) Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. (3) Avoid close contact with people who are sick. (4) Stay home when you are sick. (5) Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. (6) Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. We wish you all the best!

WASHINGTON, ILLINOIS March 6, 2020 PRESS RELEASE On March 5, 2020 a notebook containing a handwritten list of several pupils created by a Beverly Manor School student that threatened “revenge” against those on the list was turned in to Beverly Manor School administration. Upon learning about the list, administrators immediately commenced an investigation which included involvement of law enforcement. Based on our investigation, we were able to identify the student responsible, speak with the student at some length, and conclude that the student did not intend to carry out any threat. Nevertheless, such threats are not tolerated and appropriate steps are being taken to hold the responsible student accountable. Parents of students on the list were contacted by administration to inform them of the matter.
