Return To Learn Plan

 
The following are PDF versions of the planning documents presented to the Board of Education on July 20th. 
Student and Family Health & Safety Guidelines

Our first priority as a school district is the health and safety of our students, staff and community. Throughout this pandemic, our team has partnered with and been guided by local, state and federal agencies including the Rock Island County Health Department, the Illinois Dept. of Public Health, the Illinois State Board of Education and the Center for Disease Control. Regardless of the learning model, any person entering MCV school properties will be required to follow all public health guidelines. View an explanation of the health requirements and expectations that must be followed by families.

Return to Learn Community Resources
For this year due to the pandemic, students and parents at all levels can choose to opt-out of in-person instruction and stay home 5 days per week in full-time remote learning. 
 
If you are choosing to keep your child home in full-time remote learning, we are asking you to complete the Opt-out Form.  Please contact your school office to complete this form.


Free Student Meals
The district has received a meal waiver from the USDA to provide ALL meals to ALL students for FREE! The free meals will begin September 8 and continue through December 18, 2020. Students attending school in-person are encouraged to either stay and eat a free hot lunch or grab a sack lunch as they are dismissed to take with them. A third option is available for parents where they can come through a grab & go line in the new service we are offering (see below). Families with remote learners at home are encouraged to take advantage of this new free grab & go meal distribution service.

Grab & Go Meals 

When:
Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30 am-11:30 am
Where: John Deere Middle School  and Wilson Middle School 
What: Students can receive 2 breakfasts and 2 lunches on Mondays and Wednesdays; 1 breakfast and 1 lunch on Fridays 
Who: All MCV students are eligible regardless of whether on full remote learning at home OR attending school on A/B days. This is now a free program for ALL district students, and any family can go to either location. Student ID's are no longer needed. Families can receive meals for any children in the household 18 and under. 
How: As school will be in session, families are now asked to remain in their cars for the grab & go service.

Farmers to Families Food Supplemental Boxes (Fall Season) 

When:
Friday, September 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th from 10:30 am - 12:30 pm or while supplies last ( we will only receive 300 of each box). We hope to get more dates in October but have only been given these dates in September for now.
Where: John Deere Middle School only - because of the refrigerated truck we can only have one location to distribute these boxes. We chose Deere because families are used to going Deere for the summer food supplemental box distribution. 
What : We will distribute on a first-come, first-served basis, 2 large boxes (1 fresh produce box containing a beautiful selection of fresh fruits and vegetables and 1 fresh dairy box that contains milk, cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, etc) at no cost to families
Who: Any Moline-Coal Valley school district family (attending any district school) is eligible for this free supplemental food box. This is from the Food Bank and not the National School Lunch program so no student ID number is needed for these boxes. Because of the limited supply we will receive, we can only give 1 produce box and 1 dairy box to each family that comes. 

The food supplemental box program through RiverBend is a grab and go offering so families can technically stay in their cars, however, we encourage families to also park and go into the cafeteria to pick up a school breakfast and school lunch for each of their students through the National School Lunch program.

Chromebooks will be distributed to students during the school day beginning the week of August 24th.  
MetroLink has been working with district administrators to provide reliable and safe transportation for students by adjusting their peak hour schedules and accommodating the District's Return to Learn Plan.  Please visit the MetroLink website and be sure to check the schedules link often for changes.
