Hinsdale Middle School students head for buses Jan. 23 after the first day of a split schedule at Clarendon Hills Middle School.

HINSDALE – The final day of the split schedule between Hinsdale Middle School and Clarendon Hills Middle School students is "very likely" to be Monday, according to a District 181 notice sent out Thursday night.

With this timeline in place, Hinsdale Middle School staff would have the opportunity to be in the school Monday morning, the district would hold the open house from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Monday and classes would resume at Hinsdale on Tuesday, according to the notice.

Earlier Thursday, the district said it was still "on target" for a Sunday open house and Monday re-opening.

District officials said it's still possible that this timeline could shift, but the district is confident the school will be open to students next week.

SERVPRO is expected to continue duct cleaning through midday Friday. Final cleaning will take place Friday and conclude Saturday, according to the notice.

Integrity Environmental Services will begin testing on Friday evening and the company expects results to be ready either Sunday or Monday. The report will be posted at d181.org.

As an extra measure to ensure the school is ready, the district has asked architects from Healy, Bender & Associates and representatives of the DuPage Regional Office of Education to complete a walk-through of the school on Monday, according to the notice.
