Fenwick Is Heading Back To School!


Fenwick Is Heading Back to School!

With Illinois entering Phase 4 of its reopening plan, and the guidelines from the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) for the safe reopening of schools soon to follow, Fenwick is very pleased to announce that we are opening school this fall as expected on the following dates:

●      Freshmen:  Wednesday, August 19
●      Returning and Transfer Students:  Monday, August 24

The health and safety of all our students, faculty, staff and visitors remain Fenwick’s highest priority, but a close second is maintaining the quality academic standards that Fenwick is known for and you expect. 

The two task forces responsible for detailing the reopening plans - 1) health and safety/facilities and 2) academic/curriculum and student life - eagerly await the ISBE guidelines and will incorporate those into their planning, but at this point, it is extremely likely that the school year will start with some hybrid combination of in-school and remote learning.  The task forces expect to complete their work in the next 2-3 weeks and present a detailed reopening plan to the board.  Detailed information will be presented here and will be sent directly to students/parents shortly thereafter.

In the meantime, please continue to remain safe as we all look forward to the new school year and a little more return to normalcy.

Have a great summer!
