City of St Charles School District

A Proud Past...An Enlightened Future


  • SCSD Families,

    As I stated in my last letter, it is now time for our families to have the opportunity to change their child’s current learning format (in-person or virtual) for the second semester. We are starting this process now to give the District and building administration enough time to collect all of the responses and make the necessary staff changes. Your child’s “second semester” learning format will go into effect January 5th for grades K-6 and January 18th for grades 7-12.

    We need you to finalize your choice of learning for the second semester by 4 pm on November 6th by completing an e-form in the SISK12 parent portal. Once logged in, please look for the yellow highlighted e-form and submit your final choice. (For families with multiple parents that have SISK12 portal access, once the final selection has been submitted by one parent, the yellow highlighted e-form notification will no longer be active. So, you may wish to discuss this before making a final selection.) It’s important that you submit a choice for each of your children enrolled in the school district. Also, make sure all of your contact information (phone numbers, email, etc.) are up to date to ensure you continue to receive timely communication from the District. 

    We hope you have an opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher(s) either Wednesday or Thursday this week as we are hosting virtual parent/teacher conferences. It’s vital that we continue to communicate as we move forward in this challenging time. Also, please remember that there is no school Thursday 10/29, Friday 10/30, Monday 11/2, and Tuesday 11/3. 

    As we continue to maneuver through the pandemic, I want to remind you once again of the vital steps in keeping us all healthy and safe. Stay home if you're feeling ill or have any symptoms of COVID-19. Social distance (stay 6 ft.) as much as you can. Unfortunately, we can not guarantee 6ft distancing in all classrooms, and that is why there is contact tracing and quarantining taking place at a high rate when there are positive cases. However, we must keep our distance as much as we can inside and outside of school. Wear masks at all times. Wash your hands and practice strong hygiene protocols. Stay engaged in the learning process whether you’re in-person or at home learning. We need all students engaged and actively participating in lessons/learning activities. Stay positive because it’s easy to be frustrated when we have positive cases and have to quarantine, but we must not blame others when they’re sick or spread negative rumors about confidential situations. Let’s keep encouraging each other. 

    United Together,
    Dr. Jason Sefrit
    Superintendent of Schools
