To further safeguard Illinois from the spread of the Coronavirus/COVID-19, Governor JB Pritzker has declared mandatory school closures for all buildings, both public and private, serving pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students.The mandatory closing begins Tuesday, March 17 and we anticipate reopening Tuesday, March 31. There will be no activities at our building during this time. This reopening date is subject to change as this situation continues to evolve.

March 17-20- eLearning opportunities

March 23-27- spring break

March 30-eLearning opportunities

We are committed to keeping students engaged in their learning during this statewide school closure. South Campus will be providing students with work digitally if it has been determined they have adequate access to internet/device OR students will be given paper-assignments upon dismissal tomorrow. Teacher, therapist and other related service staff will be in contact throughout the week via phone, email and possible web conferencing in an effort to provide continuity of services.  Our team is planning on maintaining current schedule for IEP meetings, however, this will occur via conference phone during the school closing period. 

We will continue to inform you as quickly as we can about any further changes to school services. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jessica Edward with questions at


We appreciate your partnership, and we will get through this together. 


Out of an abundance of precaution, New Connections Academy will be closed effective Tuesday, March 17, thru Monday, March 30, 2020.   It is anticipated that school will resume on Tuesday, March 31, 2020.  New Connections Academy will be implementing eLearning days and students should access their teachers’ Google Classroom on Tuesday March 17th for assignments they are to work on.  Additional information will be posted on the New Connections Academy website for parents. As we make decisions going forward, we will be reviewing the ever-evolving information regarding coronavirus, consulting with health officials, and communicating future plans. We will continue to follow CDC and other epidemiological recommendations which support preventative measures to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus in our community. It bears repeating that we have not been notified of any school or community member who has been diagnosed with this virus.   We will continue to share updated information as it becomes available. Thank you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.
