​Parents and Community Members March 31 Letter​

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 April 30 in order to slow down the spread of COVID-19. 

During this time, on-site learning and activities will remain suspended but our schools’ commitment to learning and education will remain open and learning will continue for all students – but through a remote learning format.

While it is not ideal, we want to assure you that at Teutopolis CUSD #50, our teachers and staff are fully engaged and willing to move forward with this new challenge and push forward with remote learning, engaging with students and continuing with our food distribution program. 

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. 

As a recap, here are the three priorities for our leadership and planning moving forward:

Priority 1 - Feed and care for the extended safety, health, and welfare of students, families, non-student children, staff, and community at large.  If you are in need of food/meals please contact the Unit Office at 217-857-3535 or complete the online survey at www.teutopolisschools.org 

Priority 2 - Communicate clearly; share coherent, organized and controlled messages with your staff, students and community.

Priority 3 - Provide for the continuity of learning in Illinois

We truly appreciate your support and assistance as we continue to work together and support our students. Thanks again. 


Deborah Philpot, Interim Superintendent

Teutopolis CUSD #50
