At roughly 4:30 this afternoon, during scheduled maintenance, the Illini Bluffs administration was made aware of a concern regarding the water quality in our schools. As a result, the administrative team met with a team of individuals who worked collectively to address the issue. The team also received guidance from the Department of Health, medical professionals, and poison control to ensure our students, staff, and faculty were safe. During our discussions we also contacted Illinois American Water and were assured the water in the community was not affected. Student and staff safety is our top priority. A qualified agency will be conducting testing throughout the schools on Thursday, March 5, to ensure safe and useable water. A decision regarding after school activities Thursday, as well as school on Friday, will be made based on the results of water testing. If you have any questions, please contact the Illini Bluffs District office at (309) 389-2231.

On Monday, Mrs. Herrmann's second graders took a trip to the HS library to read with Ms. Gresham's U.S. Issues seniors. Last semester, these seniors wrote CF Industries grant proposals, and one of the proposals that was funded was an environmental bookmobile for the elementary school. This was a great opportunity to take advantage of our K-12 campus; Illini Bluffs is lucky to be able to experience learning together, across grade levels.
