Messages from Dr. Carpenter:
Dupo CUSD 196 has been working with the St. Clair County Health Department regarding an increase in positive cases of COVID-19.
Based on local guidance and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), the district will enact the following measures:
- Suspension of DSHS Football activities through October 8th pending further communication with the Health Department
- Cancelling the game on Friday, October 8th against Chester.
Despite cancelling football activities for the remainder of this week, we do acknowledge the effort our team has made during practice and we encourage your support of the team as well.
Dear Dupo #196 Parents & Guardians,
As you may know, Illinois Governor, J. B. Pritzker held a COVID-19 press conference today where he issued new rules regarding indoor masking, educational employee vaccination and testing requirements.
The indoor masking order, statewide, begins Monday, August 30, and the requirement for educational employees to begin their COVID-19 vaccine regimen is September 5. All educational employees must get a COVID-19 vaccination or submit to testing weekly (or more frequently if ordered by the local health department).
We will communicate internally with our staff on the specifics of how we will verify staff vaccination status, and coordinate weekly testing as appropriate.
Our consistent and continuous aim is safety, learning, and communication. We’re proud to be open, full day and full time and fully in person. Thank you for your support and understanding, and thank you for allowing us to lead and serve the educational needs for each child, every day!
Need Internet for Homework?
Need Internet for Homework?
Dupo Senior High School now has new mobile hotspots, called Kajeet Smartspots, that are available for students to check out and use at home or on the road.
Kajeet is a filtered hotspot that allows students to use up to 500MB of data each day. Students who do not have Internet access at home, or perhaps will be traveling without Internet, may check out a Kajeet to take with them. Social media and video sites are filtered and will not work.
Permission slips are attached and also found on the website under https://www.dupo196.org/technology and hard copies are also available in the Dupo Senior High School Library. A parent’s signature is required since the student is responsible for the cost of a lost device.
If you would like to check out a Kajeet, please bring a signed permission slip to the High School Library.
