Good Afternoon Panthers, PBL begins the second semester tomorrow and will follow the same schedule as we did first semester. Please remember to certify your child's health before sending them to school. Do not send your child to school if they have COVID symptoms, have tested positive, or they have been around someone that is symptomatic or have tested positive. Students attending in person shall wear a mask, social distance at 6' or more whenever possible and wash their hands frequently. We have really appreciated the cooperation of parents and students this school year. Let's have a great start to 2021. GO PANTHERS!
Good Afternoon Panthers and Happy New Year! We kick off the second semester and return to in person learning on Tuesday, January 5, 2021. We will be on the same schedule and calendar that we followed during the first semester. This could change as I have told you many times that this situation continuously evolves. Please remember to begin completing your daily health certifications on Tuesday and do not come to school if you are ill, displaying symptoms, have been tested due to being symptomatic or have been around someone displaying COVID symptoms. I want to remind you to wear a mask to school and make sure it fits properly over the nose and mouth, wash hands frequently, and social distance at 6' or greater whenever possible. We had a successful first semester due to the cooperative attitude of our students, staff and community. Let's do the same in the New Year! GO PANTHERS!
Good Afternoon Panthers! Today we are happy to report that semester one of the 20-21 school year is in the books. We are so fortunate to have made it almost entirely in-person. Hat’s off to our exceptional staff, students, parents and community members who have battled through adversity to help us reach this point. The Panther fighting spirit has never been more tested and proudly displayed. We’re just getting started, and we will be even stronger together in 2021! Please continue to monitor the website and social media accounts for any updates over break. We want to wish everyone a very happy holiday season and we can’t wait to welcome our students back on Tuesday, January 5.

Please read the following information regarding student health compliance. ISBE SAFETY UPDATE: STUDENT HEALTH IMMUNIZATIONS & PHYSICALS PBL school nurses have been making additional courtesy phone calls to parents of students who do not have up to date health immunizations and physicals on record at their school's main office. During these phone calls, the nurses also explained that students without these records on file will be excluded from all school educational services and activities. Tuesday, school districts received notification from the Illinois State Board of Education that they have changed their position on the conditions of this requirement. Beginning on October 16th, any student receiving in-person instruction who does not have their required Health Immunizations or Physicals on file will be transitioned to full Remote Learning until these school code requirements are met. Please be advised that until all physical and immunizations requirements are met in-person students will not be able to attend in-person instruction or services and will not be eligible for extra-curricular activities. Remote learners out of compliance will not be eligible for extra-curricular activities and high school remote learners will not be able to take tests on campus until they submit these documents. All students will still be eligible for school food service during this time. Please contact your school nurse or building administrator for further information and any questions you may have. The Paxton Buckley Loda School District will partner with any family that needs to temporarily transition to full remote learning until these requirements are met so that we can provide the continuity of education for our students.

Dear PBL Parent/Guardian, Please carefully read the following documents regarding remote learning if you are considering that as an option for the 2020-2021 school year. You will be asked to indicate which option you will be choosing for your child/children at registration. Online registration will begin next week and the final date is August 7. Administrators will be communicating with parents who choose remote learning at registration to further explain the process. Please be aware that if you choose remote learning your child will not be able to return to in-person learning until the quarter at PBL Clara Pete and the semester at PBL JH & PBL HS. Remote learning will require a significant time commitment. Please carefully consider the expectations and review the checklist to help determine if the remote learning option is right for your family. Parents of special education students are encouraged to contact their school offices for more detailed information, specific to the child’s individual plan. Thank you, we realize this is a lot of information to process in a short amount of time. We will do our best to provide timely and accurate information as we partner with our families in assisting you with these difficult decisions.
