READY REMINDER: Are you a senior? Are you scheduled to take the SAT Test tomorrow? This is a friendly reminder that the SAT Test will be given this Wednesday (October 14th) at READY. While Wednesdays have been "remote learning" days, if you are taking the SAT Test, you must physically come to school. If you are a rural student who normally rides a yellow bus to school, your bus will pick you up like it is a normal school day. Breakfast will be served between 8:00am-8:25am. Testing starts at 8:30am. If you are late, you will not be allowed to test. A grab-and-go lunch will be available for you once you complete testing. PLEASE be there tomorrow so that you can get this test completed. Remember, it is a graduation requirement that you take this test! Questions? Please email Mr. Hart at mhart@readyprogram.org or call the office at (217) 239.0322. Thank you!

Welcome to school year 2020-2021 at The READY Program! We are happy to be able to safely return to school with social distancing and other precautions in place to protect our students and staff. A couple of things to remember when sending your student to school on August 18th: *ALL STUDENTS AND STAFF MUST WEAR A MASK THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL DAY. Students will be allowed to remove them to eat breakfast and lunch. We will be serving breakfast and lunch each day; however, only one student will be allowed per table in the cafeteria. *Wednesday, August 19th will be our first remote learning day, and students will get directions from teachers on Tuesday, so they know what is required for remote learning Wednesday's. *As the school year progresses, and we get mandates/guidelines from the State and local agencies, we will communicate any changes in our schedule. *We look forward to seeing all of our students on Tuesday, August 18th @ 8:00AM!
