This is a message from District 300. As a result of a significant number of COVID-related situations involving our high school students, we are currently pausing all high school extra-curricular activities until Tuesday, Sept.7, at which point we will reevaluate the situation. It has been incorrectly reported in some local media outlets that we will not be in school. This is erroneous. ALL Du Quoin District 300 schools remain in session and in-person. Thank you Matthew Hickam, Supt.
