• Update as of 3/24/20:

    Hello Chester Upland School District Family,


    This is Superintendent Baughn.  I am posting this to officially let you know that as per the Governor’s order, Chester Upland School District will be closed until April 13.  During the next two weeks a team led by Dr. Jala Olds Pearson (Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction), will be working on a plan for at home instruction in the event the school closure is extended.


    Additionally, “tips for social and emotional well-being will be coming out 2x a week". Tips that will hopefully help you take care of yourselves during this unsettling time. Please look for those tips to appear on our website beginning this Thursday, March 26.


    Grab and Go Breakfast and Lunch will continue to be available at the school location closest to you:

    Chester High School, Toby Farms Middle School, or Stetser Elementary School. 

Close alert
