COVID-19 Dashboard

The data below is updated each week to provide a snapshot of how many students and staff are quarantined or isolated due to COVID-19. In addition to local district data, we continue to review data from IDPH and local county health departments daily. We are thankful for the hard work of our community and staff to allow in-person instruction to continue. We do not take for granted the opportunity we currently have to be with our students each week.

EPG Return to Learn Surveys

We sent a survey out to EPG parents and EPG staff from June 23rd through July 2nd asking for feedback on the opening of school. These slides show the questions and responses as they were received. Thank you to all the community members and staff who took the time to share their feedback. It certainly helped as we developed plans for the upcoming school year.
