District 205 is excited to welcome all students back to campus full-time, five days per week beginning April 12, 2021. Our principals have already started sharing details for each campus. As a reminder, all families who are currently enrolled in remote learning have another opportunity to select in-person learning. This selection will be for the remainder of the school year

Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 will transition from hybrid to remote instruction for two weeks beginning October 21-November 4, 2020, implementing an Adaptive Pause in accordance with IDPH guidelines. The pause to in-person instruction comes because DuPage County has entered into Substantial Community Transmission. COVID-19’s presence in the community has increased to a level that stands to expose our families and staff to health risks. Expand this story for next steps.
