2021 - 2022 School Year

Revised IDPH/ISBE Exclusion Guidance

Tonica Grade School will be implementing the revised and updated IDPH/ISBE guidance regarding COVID19 exclusions beginning on Tuesday, January 18th.  Office staff will start to contact families on Friday, January 14th of students out on exclusion to determine a return to school plan and date.  This also includes additional masking requirement if outside near others and right after eating and staying in the meal location through day ten (10).  The document will be provided to parents via our auto messenger and is also linked below.  Although reported sound bites state exclusions are reduced to five (5) days it is important to know that that timeline is a starting point and exclusions may last longer.  Close contact exclusions start after the last contact with a positive or symptomatic person and adults need to have received their booster (if eligible) or would have exclusions as well.  It is very important that parents and staff continue to be vigilant about reporting any possible C19 issues outside of school in order to keep our school as safe as possible.  We understand the difficulties regarding students that are excluded especially for working parents; however, sending students to school that have symptoms or were near those that may have C19 risks our ability to maintain in-person learning and also increases the risk to others to contract C19.

Bus Routes

Starting on Friday, January 14th we will have two AM buses.  One for GREEN and one for RED; however, there is also a fall back plan of one bus if two are not available.  The bus routes will be emailed to parents via the messenger system.  There will be either one or two busses for PM routes and times will adjust accordingly.  Those routes unfortunately haven't been set up with times yet as the focus was on getting the morning buses running.

Tonica Grade School Sign

The Tonica Community Consolidated School District #79 is a K-8th grade district encompassing 59 square miles.

For a period of forty years, from 1868 to 1907, and before additions, the main part of this school house [called the “white school” because of its exterior color] was built in 1868 and before that time two one-room structures were used on this site for eleven years.
