Dear School Community,
After careful consideration of information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) regarding social distancing and the support of preventative measures to limit the spread of the coronavirus in our community, we are closing schools beginning Monday, March 16th with a tentative return date of April 6th.School will be in session all day today.
Proactive school closures have been shown to be one of the most powerful interventions that we can deploy to curb the spread of a virus.
Further information will be forthcoming regarding the districts’ efforts to maintain some continuity of instruction for our students over this time.
School officials will continue to work with our local health department, the Illinois Department of Public Health, and medical community partners. We will take the necessary steps to ensure the safety, health, and well-being of everyone in our community.
We appreciate your support during this challenging time. We know there will be a lot of questions and we will be in communication with updates as they develop.
