Face Covering Information
Any family who has a student that is kindergarten eligible to begin school this fall (age 5 prior to Sept. 1st, 2020) needs to pre-register with Mr. Newton. If your child was already pre-registered, or was already signed up for a kindergarten screening, you do not need to contact the office. You can contact Mr. Newton at 217-792-7220 on weekdays between 8 AM and noon. You can also email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
All offices are closed today due to the power outage. Offices will reopen at 8 AM on Tuesday, April 14.
Social distancing has become a key factor in slowing the spread of COVID-19. Please check out this poster for details.
With so many uncertainties for all of us, we do not want providing food for our families to be another. Many of our circumstances are changing quickly (jobs, childcare, finances). So, lets continue to work together to get through this!
The local churches and community have come together in this time to help one another. Many people have donated food and money to help meet needs. If you are in need of food, we want you to have it!
TODAY, food will be available from 3-7 p.m. at the front of the Mt. Pulaski Christian Church Family Life Center (114 N. Lafayette).
Just pull on up near the doors, pop your trunk, and I (Casey McCormick) will come out alone and figure out how we can meet your family’s needs. We’ll get you on your way as quickly as possible.
If you need food, but this time doesn’t work, please contact me (Casey McCormick) at 217-331-8471 to make arrangements to get you what you need.
It would be best to get this food into your hands as quickly as possible, as we don’t know what restrictions will be implemented next.
Due to growing concerns over Covid19, Mt. Pulaski Schools will be operating on a half day schedule releasing students at 11:30 AM. Any families choosing to keep their students home from school today will receive an excused absence with no consequences, including high school students seeking to not take finals. Teachers will have home instruction packets available for student pick up by the end of the school day today.
The building will be open during the rest of the week from 8 AM to 1PM daily for families to pick up student supplies and resources. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
Per the guidance of the State Superintendent of Education, Dr. Carmen Ayala, ALL in-person school-sponsored activities that were scheduled during the statewide school closure are suspended until school resumes. This includes athletic contests and practices, meetings, award ceremonies, athletic/FFA banquets and events, and other evening events at the schools.

Mt. Pulaski schools will be in session this Monday, March 16, 2020.
School will resume on Tuesday, March 31, 2020.

Decisions regarding activities and events will be announced on Monday, March 16, 2020.
We understand you may have questions and want more information. We are working diligently to gather and disseminate information as quickly as possible. The safety of our staff and students of highest priority.
Mt. Pulaski Schools conducted a “lockout” in both schools by request of the Mt. Pulaski Police Department due to a local incident. The “lockout” has been lifted and both schools are once again operating as usual. The local incident had no connections with the schools; the lockout was a precaution for student and staff safety.
