London City Schools announced on April 6 that it will continue its preschool program next year.
The district renewed its partnership with the Madison County Board of Developmental Disabilities and the Madison Champaign County Educational Service Center to hold its preschool program with the Fairhaven Early Learning Academy in the 2021-22 school year.
Next year marks the district’s second year holding preschool at Fairhaven.
“Holding preschool at Fairhaven went well for us, all things considered. Last year we pooled resources to keep Fairhaven open and transitioned some classes over there which worked pretty well for us,” said Dr. Lou Kramer, London City Schools superintendent.
Fairhaven mixes students from the Madison-Plains and London school districts but is led by a London employee. The district is excited to continue the partnership, Kramer said.
In other news, this week the district had its lowest number of COVID-19 quarantines and isolations for the entire 2020-21 school year.
“We’re trending very, very well,” Kramer said.
With COVID-19 cases decreasing, the district is looking forward to an in-person prom at the high school on May 1. The district is fitting guidance from Madison County Public Health into their prom plans, Kramer said.
The district also will hold an in-person outdoor graduation on May 27.
London High School is selling yearbooks until May 15. Yearbooks cost $60 ($65 for a yearbook with a personalized name plate). Yearbooks are sold in person at the high school and online at pictavo.com.
