Princeton Board Reviews Revised Return To Learn Plan

Princeton School Board members reviewed the Return to Learn Plan revised by the district following the Cole County Circuit Court ruling during their meeting Monday.

Students and staff who tested positive for COVID-19 can return after completing an isolation timeline recommended by the local health department. The school will contact trace positive students and staff and notify parents and guardians by phone if close contacts are identified. If students and staff are identified as a close contact, they will not need to be excluded from school or work if they are without symptoms, are fully vaccinated, or had COVID-19 within the previous 3 months. The county health department’s recommendation will be honored regarding recommended quarantines. Parents and guardians will have the choice to quarantine a child if they are believed to have been in contact with a positive case.

The federal grant to help finance the ballfield relocation has been approved. A sewer line will be relocated prior to the construction of the fields. A fall 2022 construction completion date is still hoped.

Princeton’s district has been awarded $200,000 from the VW Foundation towards the purchase of an electric school bus. The district continues to look for other financing to complete the purchase of a bus that is estimated to cost $340,000.

Princeton’s School Board Filing Period continues through December 28th. To this point, incumbents Nathan Evans and Ron Parsons have filed.

Princeton will not have school December 23rd through January 3rd. School resumes January 4th.
