On March 17, 2020, all 30 District 202 schools stood completely empty for the first time in recent memory, as the Covid-19 virus shut down the world.
A year later, students have returned to school slowly and safely – both remotely and in hybrid in-person classrooms -- as schools and communities start to return to something resembling “normal life” during the ongoing pandemic.
The District 202 Community Relations department anticipated the tremendous impact the pandemic would have on students, staff, and families and set out on a year-long project to chronicle one of the most challenging years in the district’s history.

Today, on the one-year anniversary of schools shutting down, District 202 proudly releases the first of four installments of “Life in a Pandemic.”
Each segment, running about five minutes, takes a candid and comprehensive look at the myriad challenges the pandemic created, including:
“In my 35-plus years as a professional educator, I have never seen anything like this pandemic,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lane Abrell.
“This wonderful video project accurately and candidly shows every side of this time and all the challenges we had to address,” Abrell said.
“We certainly hit some bumps in the road, but as this video shows, we have persevered, and a year later, I think our district, and our community is stronger for this experience,” he said.
