ROCK ISLAND, Ill. (KWQC) - The Rock Island-Milan School District is reminding parents and guardians the deadline to switch students to blended learning is coming up this Wednesday, September 23.

On October 19, the school district will move to its blended learning plan, which is a combination of in-person and remote learning in school buildings.

Parents and guardians can choose whether their children will either continue remote learning or move to blending learning by filling out the 2nd quarter Commitment Form.

If parents and guardians do not send a form in for their children by Wednesday, September 23, the school district says students will stay in their remote learning schedule the remainder of the 2nd quarter, which is until December 22.

Parents and guardians may switch their child from blended to remote learning at any time by notifying the school principal. However, school officials say parents may not switch from remote to blended learning after Wednesday, September 23.
