Thursday, August 26, 2021 Dear Leland CUSD 1, Parents & Guardians, & Members of the Community, As you may know, Illinois Governor, J. B. Pritzker held a COVID-19 press conference today where he issued new rules regarding indoor masking, educational employee vaccination and testing requirements. The indoor masking order, statewide, begins Monday, August 30, and the requirement for educational employees to begin their COVID-19 vaccine regimen is September 5. All educational employees must get a COVID-19 vaccination or participate in weekly screening tests (or more frequently if ordered by the local health department). We will communicate internally with our staff on the specifics of how we will verify staff vaccination status, and coordinate weekly testing as appropriate. We will also offer screening for our vaccinated employees who choose to participate. Our consistent and continuous aim is safety, learning, and communication. We’re proud to be open, full day and full time and fully in person. Thank you for your support and understanding, and thank you for allowing us to lead and serve the educational needs for each child, every day!
Leland's Library will be open to the public every Monday that school is in session. Check out the flyer for all the information. Please contact the school with any questions.

Through an extension of the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA), all meals will be provided free of charge to students who order breakfast and lunch. Leland School will continue with the use of Arbor for our food services this year. For lunch we will have a new option for students which gives them a choice each day. You will notice on the side of the menu the daily options. This gives students a choice between what is listed on the menu for that day or they can choose the alternative for that day, (example Monday the student will have a choice of either Hot dog or Cheeseburger). The teacher will ask the students' choice in the morning while taking lunch count. We are offering seconds this year for the students, but this is not covered through the free meal extension. Students will be charged a price for seconds, High School $2.20; Middle School $2.05; K-4 $1.85; Milk only $0.50. Our cafeteria program runs as a debit system -Please have funds in your student(s)’ accounts prior to them taking seconds. It is best to keep a minimum of $5.00 balance in those accounts.

Please stop by to grab yours, or contact the office to make arrangements to pick them up. 2) we are closing out last fiscal year and have several families with outstanding balances. As we had no local fees the 2020-2021 school year, most of these are for miscellaneous items (library books, lost/damaged chromebooks, music supplies, etc.) or are cafeteria or general fee balances from prior years that rolled over. PLEASE make every effort to bring those accounts current before we open our new fiscal year next week. When you receive emails regarding balance information, only the amounts show in (parenthesis) are negative balances. You may pay fees in the office with cash, check or card, or you may use a card using this link https://magic.collectorsolutions.com/magic-ui/en-US/Pay/Process/CartInformation (link can also be accessed from our website www.leland1.org) 3) 2021-2022 School year is set to begin: Aug. 23, 2021-1st Day of Classes 4) Online Registration will be opening soon - watch for emails with details on that!!

Leland High School is looking for a Science Teacher for the upcoming school year! Click on the link below for directions to apply! https://www.illinoiseducationjobbank.org/Job-Posting/129581/High-School-Science-Teacher/job-details
From Mrs. Cameron in our Music Department: Earlier in the semester, our senior high students were assigned a project which, along with staff members, got them involved in the creative process. They were asked to submit three to four music recommendations knowing that students would listen to staff recommendations and vice versa. Students and staff alike did not know who submitted the recommendations and were asked to evaluate the music and then guess who suggested the piece. The results were outstanding and are evidenced in these videos which reflect genuine, articulate, and fun/silly responses. Enjoy!! Take some time to watch and listen to the music, and see if your reviews match up with any of ours! https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1k3HyVX0hLz2vkvVNmMLScs0qsEvN-oapWNdk18qWF0g/edit?usp=sharing
