Collinsville Community Unit School District #10 is committed to the health and safety of our students, staff and their families. Our 2021-22 Return to Learn Plan has been developed with that in mind.
While our plan specifies guidelines for our staff, students and buildings to follow, everyone’s health and safety is dependent on each individual. To review the complete Wellness Plan for Return to Learn in the 2021-22 school year, see the district’s full Return to Learn document.

COVID-19 Training for Students
CUSD #10 students and staff are expected to maintain physical distancing to the greatest extent possible keeping in mind the recommendation of 6 feet apart throughout the school day. Signage reminding staff, visitors and students to maintain physical distancing is placed at all entrances, in classrooms and throughout other common areas.
CUSD #10 understands that physical distancing will not be possible for all circumstances. Students and staff are required to properly wear masks. A student’s refusal or repeated failure to wear a face covering will result in the student being placed on 100% Remote Learning. Please note: Some public health studies have determined a “gator” style face scarf is NOT as effective as a mask. Students and staff will not be permitted to wear a gator unless a mask is worn beneath it.
Frequent hand washing and hand sanitizing is key to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Students and staff will be instructed in the proper hand-washing technique. Everyone must avoid touching their mouth, eyes or nose as much as possible. Staff and students are required to use hand sanitizer upon entering the classroom each time. Hand sanitizer is provided by the District. Each building has signage reminding everyone of the need for proper hand hygiene.
