Good Afternoon Panthers, Please click on the link below to read about COVID19 procedural changes at PBL. https://drive.google.com/file/d/145M2hdxhWqoDgGl0t9ziIb6CnH-ljnQG/view?usp=sharing Thank you
Just wanting to provide some clarification about the quarantine period for anybody that is considered a close contact. As a school, we have used a 14-day quarantine period all year. Depending on the county you reside in, this may differ from what your local health department communicates to you. The reason we have continued to use a 14-day quarantine is that if we allow a student to return after 10 days, then the public health requirements for days 11-14 are not practical or possible in a school setting. Also, please realize that a 14-day quarantine means the student stays at home for 14 days and then returns to school on the 15th day. Hopefully, this makes sense. If there are questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Duley at the high school office.

Dear PBL Parent, This is a reminder to participate in the parent survey supplement, part of the Illinois 5Essentials Survey administration. We guarantee that survey responses will never be connected to the identity of you or your child. School reports will only present aggregated information of how parents and students responded as a whole. A parent survey report will be generated if at least 20 percent of parents respond to the survey. While the parent data will not be made public, the parent report will be made available to your school administrator and the superintendent and will enable them to make considerations based on the responses given by PBL parents. Your participation in the parent survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. Again, your identity and individual survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. Teachers and 4th through 12th graders throughout Illinois are taking the teacher and student 5Essentials Survey. School-level 5Essentials Reports will be generated if teachers and/or students meet their 50 percent response-rate thresholds. These research-based reports will be sent to schools and districts in March and will also be included in the State School Report Card, released statewide in the fall. Please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ to take the parent survey. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact 5Essentials Customer Support at 1-866-440-1874 or email@example.com. Thank you!!
