CUSD #187 School Closure Update March 14, 2020
Posted 3/14/20

Cahokia Families and Students,


Our state is experiencing unprecedented times not only for our daily activities but also that of our school district operations. Yesterday, the Governor issued a mandated school closure for all public and private schools in Illinois. Monday, March 16 will be a full day of school. All activities, including athletics and after school programming, are ceased immediately. No after school events will occur on March 16. 


The closure begins Tuesday, March 17 through Monday, March 30. Students will return to school on Tuesday, March 31. Staff are preparing academic information to be provided to students on Monday. If your child is not at school on Monday, parents can pick up their child’s information after 1 pm for early schools or after 2 pm for late schools. All remaining packets will be mailed.


Food service for students is a priority during this time. The District needs your feedback to determine the most beneficial distribution format. Please use the following link to provide us your input -


We recognize that the circumstances are fluid and updates will be needed as we all continue to receive information and guidance from various agencies.


We greatly appreciate your patience and fortitude during this time!
