To the ROWVA CUSD 208 Community Since April, the administration and Future Ready team have been working hard to prepare for the upcoming school year. Although this is the case, there are still a few items that are not in place that I feel are vital to opening safely. In order to give these items time to arrive, we will be utilizing two more of our allotted remote learning preparation days to start the school year. These will count as attendance days, so we will not be making them up at the end of the year. Our first day of student attendance will now be Monday, August 24th. I apologize for the inconvenience this causes everyone, but I want to make sure that all of our safety precautions are in place before we bring our students back into the building. If you have any questions, please contact the district office 309-483-3711 with concerns. Sincerely, Superintendent Sornberger
