Please help us spread the word! Our teams continue to meet and plan for the start of the 20/21 school year. We are working to offer digital registration this year or delivering packets to homes. We will update everyone as we move ahead. We plan to have class from 8:00-2:00 Monday-Friday for all students. The 1st day students will attend on campus will be August 20th. We will offer remote learning for students if families are uncomfortable sending students to school. Details on this will come out as we develop these plans. Unfortunately with how quickly things change these days we are developing alternative plans in the event the State reverts back to a different phase. We will have a survey coming out this week for families to fill out to help us make decisions about school in the fall. This will be a google survey and the link will be sent out. We are working on student supply lists and hope to have them out this week. Please hang in there with us as we work to open CUSD #200 under these circumstances. We want to give our students all the opportunities we can as school resumes. Thank you for all the support! Mr. Heavner / Mr. Turner / Transition Team
Good afternoon- I hope everyone is staying healthy and well and summer is going great. I want to share some information about the upcoming year ahead. I am thrilled to say we are working hard to do our best to return all students to school in August. Our current goal will be all students on campus everyday of the week. We will most likely have an option for families uncomfortable to send to students back to continue remote learning if they choose. These are all currently being worked on and we will share as soon as we can. There are many things we are working through and we need to make sure we get it right. I promise I will update everyone as we make choices and plan in the weeks ahead. Communication during these times will be very important. We will do our best to spread the word across various platforms. I want to be very clear there are state guidelines we as a district must follow and I hope everyone respects the rules that are in place. We have many people to think of on campus and we must plan to limit exposure best we can. Please remember we all want the students back on campus and are playing the hand we have been dealt. We will do our best to make sure kids get the best educational experience we can offer. CUSD #200 will provide masks and face shields to all students and staff. As of today all people on campus when students return will be required to wear them. As with many things during the COVID pandemic things can change quick. We are planning on this scenario but it could change. If you have questions about this or concerns please feel free to contact me about this. I understand there is a wide range of feelings but we must follow the rules laid out by the health department. Kids will be eager to return to school. Everyone here wants this to happen! As always if we can help please let us know. The children need normalcy as much as we can give them and we all look forward to the COVID-19 Pandemic to be over. -Mr.Heavner
Happy Monday! We are in the process of arranging schedules for students next year, and we are still waiting on official guidance from the state regarding what this fall will look like. In the meantime, please send all HS student schedules to the school as soon as possible, if you have not already done so. If you have misplaced a schedule or need a new one, please reach out via email (email@example.com) or phone-call (217-968-2295). Also, tentative JH schedules were mailed at the end of last week. Please look those over and send them to the school as soon as you can. Thank you and have a fantastic day!
Good Evening- I want to thank everyone for continued support of our school and community as the 2019-2020 school year winds down. Over the last few weeks the staff has worked hard to finish the year the best we can. It has been incredible to see how everyone has come together supporting our students during this time. I cannot thank everyone enough for all they have done over these trying days. We held graduation and promotion ceremonies last weekend and celebrated some amazing students. I am extremely proud of the hard work the students have done. We have now started planning for the 2020-2021 school year. Some instruction has resumed at school such as our Drivers Eduction program. It has been nice to see Mr. Cameron working with the kids at school. I want to be very clear we intend to do the best we can to open school in August. The best outcome for all children will be to return to classrooms with teachers. The magic that occurs in classrooms is extremely difficult to make happen over technology. It is important for child development that they return to learning with their peers as soon as it can safely be done. The staff has been working hard to prepare the building for the return of students and there will be some major upgrades to the facility. Our teams are looking at various scenarios that may occur but I hope and pray that the state will be open in phase 4 and we will be able to resume educational opportunities for our students. It is important that kids return to school and we will do our best to come up with viable solutions to get students back to campus. We anticipate receiving information next week from the Illinois State Board of Education on the status of school for the Fall of 20. I ask everyone remains patient as we do our best to answer questions about how procedures may go. We have a great deal of planning to do ahead of us but we are eager to work hard to bring students back to school safely. At CUSD #200 we will do everything we can to provide for a safe learning environment. We take the COVID-19 threat seriously. We will stay vigilant as we prepare to open in August. We thank you for your continued support! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out. Mr. Heavner

Dear Parents and Community Members: I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. Today, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker announced that remote learning in Illinois will be extended through the end of the 2019-20 school year. Although in-person learning has been suspended for the remainder of the year, at Greenview CUSD 200 I assure you our entire staff remains committed to learning and engaging with all students through remote learning, as well as continuing with our food distribution program. Like you, we are saddened by the reality that our school community will not be able to reconvene in person this school year due to this public health crisis. So many of you have worked so hard to learn and grow in both the classroom and in extracurricular activities that today’s announcement may feel like a step back. However, the final chapter of this school year hasn’t been written yet. These past few weeks have proven our school community is more resilient, more capable and more compassionate than maybe what we previously realized. I’m confident our collective strength will shine through during the remainder of the school year, and we will emerge even stronger. Having said that, today’s announcement will result in significant and multiple scheduling changes in our district. As this announcement about the end of the school year was just made by Governor Pritzker this afternoon, it will take us a few days to sort out the many schedule details that are on the books, including spring concerts, promotion, graduation, etc. Please be patient as we work as a district to get information to you in the next several weeks. I know this is not the school year that any of us imagined, but I want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we have dealt with this unprecedented situation together. This period of Remote Learning offers us new ways to learn and grow, and out of this Pandemic, we will emerge stronger. Plans will be underway soon for the return to in-person learning next school year. It’s important we continue to work together and support our students. I can't thank you enough for all that you are doing as we all work together through this. Take care and stay well Bulldog Country- Ryan Heavner Superintendent of Schools

We are so lucky to have such an amazing staff that cares about children. Today Mrs. Swaar prepared the kits pictured on the table s for her high school art students so they can continue the work they are doing. This is another great example of the way staff has had to think outside of the box to continue student learning! We are so thankful to Mrs. Swaar and the entire staff for all the hard work they have put in!
Good morning! We have a very IMPORTANT request- we are asking the kindest way possible. When the staff drops food or items off at homes PLEASE stay at least 10 feet away from our crew. It is so important that we all practice good social distancing. Everyone has been awesome so far and we are doing great things helping each other in this crazy time. We want to make sure we do all we can to prevent the spread to our team and the community. I do expect more information today from the State of Illinois on the status of school closings. We will share what we learn at the earliest convenience. Hang in there everyone! -Mr. Heavner
On Friday, March 20th, Governor Pritzker issued an executive order requiring residents to “stay at home” effective Saturday, March 21 at 5:00 pm, through the end of April 7. As part of the Governor’s order, he announced that school will remain closed through at least April 8. During this stay at home order, essential school personnel may still report to work as long as they are practicing social distancing. The governor’s office has assured school districts that school personnel involved in providing meals will not be in violation of the governor’s executive order and that we can, and should, continue with our program. The Superintendents’s office and school staff will work hard to ensure this continues. We recognize that this development may raise questions about the impact on students, staff, and families as well as the school’s vital role of providing meals to students and families while schools are closed. We anticipate further guidance and details from the Illinois State Board of Education next week. Right now there are many questions we cannot answer and need to work through things. Schools in modern times have never faced an issue like this. We plan to hold a graduation ceremony and the traditional Spring programs best we can when this all blows over. I ask everyone to take a deep breath and be kind. We will get through this together. It is important to encourage your students to do the best they can. This time should be focused around learning what you can. Be there for each other. Please use this opportunity to focus on staying safe and helping to slow the spread of the virus. As always, thank you for your patience and support as we all work through the COVID-19 Pandemic. As you have seen, this situation is evolving rapidly. As events unfold, we will continue to communicate in a timely and transparent manner. Ryan Heavner Superintendent of Schools

This would be a huge help if families do not come to the door. We want to avoid wet food for the kids. Hang in there everyone! We appreciate everyone doing the best they can. We appreciate our kitchen staff and drivers they are amazing people and I am so thankful for the way they have stepped up! Please be there for each other.

Today Logan Doggett would have played on the Tomahawk Conference All Star team in the annual match up in Havana. Logan like many seniors has missed out on opportunities that in a normal year many of them would have enjoyed. Logan has worked hard over the years and played hard for the Bulldogs. We are all very proud of him. We have a great group of seniors at GHS. I spoke with them about the Senior Trip earlier this week and it was a great conversation, they understand what’s going on and did a great job as they shared ideas. We came to the conclusion when we return to school we will work to put a great plan in place. It’s important that these students get the recognition they deserve when this is over. I’m proud of all of our students and super proud how this group has shown leadership with the other students as this week unfolded. Our seniors and many students at schools all over are not going to have a normal finish to the school year. Who knows what the next batch of weeks will bring. I think about our students who work so hard to prepare for events that have been canceled or are now on hold. I think about our 7th and 8th graders who had been excited to travel to New York and DC this week. The students had been thrilled to go but took the news of postponement very well. This whole situation is hard on our students. I encourage everyone to acknowledge the great things students are doing at all schools! Although our Bulldogs are not going to be at school for a while, we are going to do our best to keep them moving ahead! I thank Logan for his hard work and I’m thankful for all our students who work hard and are doing great things! -Mr. Heavner

This is the text from the conference call with Governor Pritzker yesterday our leadership team was a part of. We are working hard and updating everyone best we can. We have a lot of work ahead at Greenview #200. Starting Tuesday we will deliver lunch to all students at no cost during the closure. We are currently developing this plan today. We will get this information out as soon as possible how to get on the delivery list. We will work together to make the best of this situation. I’m so thankful to our staff for working so hard getting things in place. I will send out information this weekend about the upcoming weeks. Please message me if I can be of help. -Mr. Heavner From Gov. Pritzker: “Thank you for your time. We are in unprecedented times. Our efforts have been focused on the public health of the people of Illinois and that includes the nearly 2,000,000 students that gather in large groups every day in public school classrooms. Later today my administration is issuing a directive to public school districts in Illinois to close for classes starting on Tuesday, March 17 and returning on Monday, March 30th. We will actively assess the situation through this time period for the possibility of further closure if public health risks continue past this date. Our decision is guided by science and information health experts have provided my administration. Here’s what we know... Today, we are taking the following decisive steps to support you as administrators and the children you are charged with educating. I have instructed the Superintendent of Schools and my legal team to prepare an executive order to relieve schools of certain state mandates during this period to give you the flexibility undoubtedly needed during this challenging period. In regards to state funding dollars that your budgets for the current fiscal year are built upon, I know that many of you have concerns about certain programs where levels of funding are derived and distributed from direct classroom instruction or direct services you provide on a daily bases. While I don’t have all of the answers to how this valid question will be answered, I want you to know that no school district's funding will be cut as a result of this public crisis. This may require waivers from the federal government, legislation from the General Assembly, adoption of certain administrative rules or a combination of the above…. Again, I am making the commitment that you will not lose state resources as a result of this closure. In this regard, I have been in contact with Senator Andy Manar and Representative Jehan Gordon-Booth who are joining us on this call. I understand that no two districts face the exact same set of challenges. To this end, I am taking two steps with likely more to come as this fluid situation evolves: First, the Illinois State Board of Education will be fully staffed over the coming weekend and during the closure period to answer all of your questions as you work through individualized issues in each of your districts. Second, I have asked Dr. Brent Clark at the IASA to put together a team of experienced superintendents to help be a resource should you need it. Dr. Clark’s team is and will be communicating regularly with Deputy Governor Jesse Ruiz. Dr. Clark & Deputy Governor Ruiz will be communicating to you how to be in touch with this group should you need their help working through specific challenges. We are all in this together and I will have your back."
Spread the word! This afternoon Governor Pritzker closed all the schools closed March 17 to March 30. We will have school this Monday unless things change. If you do not feel comfortable sending your students Monday they are excused, just call on Monday. The Jr High Dance this evening is still on. We will be updating families with information as we have it to share. This is an unprecedented situation and we will try our best to make good decisions for our students. We intend to provide lunch to students over the next few weeks. I will send out information at a later time how that will be a arranged but we intend to deliver lunches to homes. Please message the page if you have questions or email me. Please be there for each other we live in a great community where we look out for each other and step up when needed.I am very proud of our staff for how hard they have worked this week to prepare for a scenario like this. During this time school is canceled campus is closed. There are no activities and events planned. Currently the plan is to not make these days up at the end of the year. There will be no practice for teams. If we can provide assistance CUSD #200 will do our best to help. Please ask if help is needed as we are in close contact with state agencies and the health department. We appreciate the support of the school in these tough times. -Mr. Heavner

Please help up spread the word! Thursday, March 12th is our final informational meeting on the school renovation and construction referendum. The meeting is open to all and will begin at 6:30 in the school library. Election Day is Tuesday, March 17th for voters in Menard County. I encourage you to attend the meeting if possible or contact me if you have questions. This project will improve the everyday educational experience for all students PK-12. This project uses money only for school construction and would make sure Greenview has a modern educational facility for years to come. I encourage all voters to exercise your democratic right to vote on Election Day. If you have question please do not hesitate to contact me. -Mr. Heavner
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1neZikqoKTAaLEdPPwvQy2ezBFS1IcGHN/view?ts=5e5979f2 The link on this page is to an excel sheet that demonstrates the increase to taxes a residential property could see with the March 17 referendum. You can enter a property value in cell B1 and the sheet will show the increase in taxes. You will need to have excel on your computer to use this form. The referendum is to make renovations to the campus and the money that would be borrowed would be used only for building purposes. The anticipated raise to taxes would still keep CUSD #200 below neighboring school districts tax rates. We will have meetings to share information on March 3rd and March 12th both starting at 6:30 pm. Please contact me if you have questions about this project. This is a great opportunity to give our students an upgraded and modern learning facility! -Mr. Heavner

As we continue in to the winter sports season we have a few reminders for all: There is no standing in the corridors or corners of the gym. This will be enforced.

Students younger than 6th grade MUST have an adult there responsible for them. Do not drop off students younger than 6th grade alone at games. This is a safety issue. If you have young students at the game please keep them with you and make sure they do not impact other spectators experience at the game. Unsupervised students will be redirected back to families that bring them. Please remember to do your best to remain positive at games. We have the best fans in Bulldog Country and want to remain classy. It’s easy to get excited and worked up over a game but remember why people come out- to cheer on the Bulldogs! We appreciate the great support this season and are excited to continue watching the students play!
