Return to School Plan Update: Due to a written ruling from Judge Raylene Grischow of Sangamon County, Illinois on Friday, February 4th, Governor Pritzker’s executive orders and IDPH/ISBE requirements regarding masking, testing, and tracing are “null and void.” Masks are no longer required in our schools; however, masks are still recommended to be worn in the schools as well as the continuance of all other layered mitigations in accordance with our Return to School Plan. Federal Transportation guidelines still require masks to be worn while on school transportation. Students who test positive for COVID-19 will still have to isolate and we still want anyone that is sick to stay home. Close contacts of students and staff will not need to continue to quarantine unless directed by the local health department. Keep in mind, this entire change of status is the result of a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) and has already been appealed by the Governor’s Office to the Fourth Appellate Court of Illinois for a decision. We will keep you apprised as the fluid situation continues to evolve. Staff will no longer be required to test weekly if not vaccinated. Testing will still be available for staff if needed. Please contact me or your building administrators if you have any questions. Keith Liddell Superintendent
