Attention Parents/Guardians of Herrin CUSD #4

The Herrin CUSD 4 Board of Education is conducting a search for a new superintendent. The selection of a new superintendent is probably the most important decision a board of education has to make; therefore, the Board has hired the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB) to assist in this process.

The Board of Education is seeking everyone’s input in the search process. The Board requests that all board members, all staff, all parents and community members complete an online survey provided by the IASB. The results will be tallied and used by the Board and Screening Team to develop a brochure to advertise the position.

Herrin #4 has been in school for five weeks. Close to 70% of our students are being educated by the hybrid model of in-person and remote learning and a little over 30% have selected the remote only model. In the five weeks of school, we have had 18 hybrid model students test positive for COVID 19. Eleven of the students are from the high school, five are at the elementary school and three are at Northside Primary. No hybrid student from the junior high has tested positive. For students selecting remote only learning, at least five students have tested positive for COVID 19. When looking at overall percentages, 1.1% of hybrid students have tested positive and .7% of remote only students have tested positive. Of the positive cases of hybrid students, most if not all of the students, were exposed to the virus outside of the school.
