COVID News & Metrics Update

Earlier today, the CDC announced new operational strategy for K-12 schools. We are reviewing this information, and we are consulting with health and legal experts to determine if it has any bearing on our plan to provide full in-person/full remote instruction on March 8.

We also expect updated guidance and interpretation from the Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois Department of Public Health and will weigh this information as we move forward.
