Welcome to the Sesser-Valier Community Unit School District #196 website.  We will work hard to make this site a primary source for timely information for all users, and a main gateway for improved communication between parents, teachers, students and other members of our community. 

Picture days are scheduled for September 24th (A day students) and 25th (B day students).

All remote Pre-K - 5th grade students will have their pictures taken on September 24th at 1:45-3:30 PM.

All remote 6th - 12th grade students will have their pictures taken on September 25th at 1:45-3:30 PM.

All students must have a completed self-certification ticket and a mask on to enter the building.  The ticket must be completed/signed by a parent or guardian.  Parents will not be permitted to enter the building.

Do not attend if you exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to a positive/probable case of COVID-19.  We will schedule a picture re-take day for students that are unable to attend.
