Kick-off for the NEW School Year!
For the 2021-2022 school year, we will have a kick-off for the Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior classes!

Incoming Freshmen will have a day called “Freshman Launch” on Tuesday, August 17. This event will be on the Wheaton Academy’s campus! Be sure to attend and receive all the details about the Freshman year experience! Keep an eye out for more details to come later this summer.

Sophomores and Juniors, mark your calendars for August 15-16! Each class will have its own retreat that Sunday-Monday in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin! This is going to be a fun and informational reboot for the new school year. More details to come at a later date. We hope you have a great summer and look forward to seeing you in August!

General News

COVID-19 Case Update
Over the last week, we had no positive cases for COVID-19, and no one is currently in quarantine.

Face Masks for Summer Academy
To bring clarity to some confusion on masks/face coverings in Wheaton Academy buildings for Summer Academy, we recommend that while inside our buildings, families adhere to the current CDC guidelines that recommend face coverings for those not vaccinated.  As we enter Phase 5 in Illinois this week, we will no longer be enforcing the indoor mask mandate, but desks will still be positioned 6 feet apart.  We suggest that families make the choice they feel is currently best for their students when it comes to wearing a mask.   Students should know that there may be times when masks are required in certain areas, and we would ask that they comply with this direction when it arises. Thank you again for your partnership.

Summer Academy Lunch
The lunch menu for Summer Academy will be available to view on Fridays. Please submit your order no later than the Thursday prior.

Book Rentals for 2021-2022 – Textbook Acquisition Form in Magnus
For the 2021-2022 school year, each family will be required to indicate whether they wish to OPT-IN to ALL ACCESS and have Wheaton Academy place the book rental orders for them or OPT-OUT and purchase/rent all books on their own. This Textbook Acquisition Form is located with all the other Back-to-School forms in Magnus. The textbook form needs to be completed by July 26, 2021. Your family will automatically be placed in the OPT-IN category if the form is not completed by July 26, and your Smart Tuition account will be billed in September.  You must complete the form for each student who is enrolled. Please contact Jenn Trott with any questions.

Fall Schedule Changes
The deadline for schedule changes is August 4. Student Services will not make any more schedule changes until after the first day of school, and those changes will be limited. Contact Angie Roberts in Student Services to make any changes or work out conflicts.
