    On Wednesday, August 4, Illinois Governor JB Pritzker announced masks will be required for students, teachers and staff at pre-kindergarten-12th grade schools regardless of their vaccination status.

     

    The mask requirement is inclusive of youth sports and activities, with masks now required for all indoor extracurriculars and sports. In line with CDC guidance, masks are not required for activities outdoors where transmission risks and rates are lower.

     

    This  announcement differs from the reopening plan our school district recently discussed. At this time, we will review the new rules and will be communicating a detailed plan similar to last years in the very near future.

     

    • Beginning with the 2021-22 school year, all schools must resume fully in-person learning for all student attendance days, provided that, pursuant to 105 ILCS 5/10-30, remote instruction be made available for students who (1) have not received a COVID-19 vaccine or (2) who are not eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, and (3) only while they are under quarantine consistent with guidance or requirements from a local public health department or the Illinois Department of Public Health.


    Thank you for your support of our students, and I look forward to a new school year!
