Updated information about Adaptive Pause to remote instruction ... 1/4-1/28
Posted 1/2/22

Dear CUSD#187 Students and Families,


After careful consideration of both the community’s positivity rate shared by East Side Health District and our internal positive staff cases, the Cahokia Board of Education extended our adaptive pause through the end of January. 


This does not apply to students with IEPs who attend tuition schools outside of the District.  Tuition students will continue to follow the schedule of their respective schools.  For questions about tuition students, please contact the Special Education Department at 332-4718.


Details for the temporary adaptive pause include:


Updated Timeline

Tuesday, January 4, 2022 - Friday, January 28, 2022 -

All students (preschool through grade 12) will participate in remote instruction following their current academic schedule daily using their district-issued device. Student attendance will be taken via Zoom and a lunch break is included in the schedule. Students are expected to be present and actively participate daily. Staff will work remotely from home or report to work in-person, as directed by their supervisor. Families and students needing support with technology should call 618-332-5965 or email


The Technology office remains open from 8-3:30 Monday-Friday to assist with Technology and device issues. No appointment is needed.


Meal distribution

More information about student meal distribution will be forthcoming.


21st Century

21st Century After-School Programs will continue virtually during the adaptive pause.



Athletics will continue during the adaptive pause. Student participants should await details from their coaches. Athletics will continue in-person unless notification is provided otherwise. All student athletes are required to participate in weekly Shield COVID testing regardless of vaccination status. During the adaptive pause, no spectators (not even parents) will be allowed to attend home games.



All staff who are in-person for a portion of time during the adaptive pause MUST PARTICIPATE in weekly Shield testing or provide negative PCR test weekly. Shield testing will only be provided once per week. 


We appreciate your flexibility and fortitude during this time to ensure the best health of everyone.
