Dear Elementary School and Middle School Families:
Moving from 5th grade into middle school and from 8th grade into high school are important milestones for both students and families. However, because of COVID-19 and the state’s mandate regarding social distancing, these milestones will be different this year. In the interest of safety, Unit 4 elementary and middle schools will not be hosting public events for 5th and 8th grade promotion. Because of logistical issues, virtual ceremonies will not be held either.
Incoming 2020-21 kindergarten students registered during the Schools of Choice process will be notified of their school assignment by mail in late May.
The registration period for new students to the District is May 1 - June 12, 2020. Parents must show current or impending residency in the form of two of the following:
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. – The Champaign Unit 4 School District announced approval of three appointments during its Board of Education meeting Monday night.

In accordance with CDC guidelines and the State mandate to limit in-person attendance at public events due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, the Unit 4 Board of Education meeting on Mon., April 27, 2020 will be conducted virtually. In person attendance will comply with CDC guidelines and the state mandate for social distancing with chairs set up six feet apart.
Unit 4 Statement on 2020 IHSA Spring Sports

As a result, all spring sport practices and competitions involving Unit 4 schools are cancelled for the remainder of the season regardless of future decisions by the IHSA.
Dear Unit 4 families and staff | Chers Familles et Employés de l'Unit 4
Governor Pritzker today announced that school facilities will remain closed for the rest of the school year. That means we will continue with our previously announced remote learning plans for the remainder of the year. We will continue to do everything we can to help students, families and staff members during the COVID-19 public health crisis.
