CCSD15 Parent Information:

Spectator Expectations & Information

Per the IDPH update as of August 10, 2021, “All spectators, regardless of vaccination status, should wear a mask in attendance at indoor youth sports events and must wear a mask if the event is held indoors in a public or nonpublic P-12 school setting. For outdoor youth sports events, spectators who are not fully vaccinated should wear a mask when unable to maintain recommended physical distance of at least 6 feet from non-household members or when the event is held in a community with substantial to high transmission. Spectators who are fully vaccinated may attend outdoor youth sports events without wearing a mask, though they may choose to do so in crowded settings or if they or someone in their household is immunocompromised.”

Parents, Family, & Friends can play a big part in keeping our Sports programs going by

  • Report Covid Symptoms or a positive test to the school nurse as soon as possible

  • Enroll your student athlete in the SHIELD testing program

  • Provide your student athlete’s proof of vaccination

  • Wear a mask to ALL indoor sport events

  • Socially distance while in the stands at both indoor and outdoor events

  • Promote a positive message of encouragement and expectation to your athlete regarding all mitigation efforts. They will follow your lead!


Privacy and student data protection is a key priority for the District. Our three main technology departments (instructional technology, technology, and data services) work to make sure our systems and vendors comply with the requirements of the Student Online Personal Protection Act or SOPPA, which regulates how student information is protected by school districts and education technology vendors they use. Our student privacy web page outlines our privacy related actions and protective measures.


We also employ a number of measures like on-site filtering, student device monitoring, and security tools which protect our network from outside threats. Students participate in digital citizenship curriculum, and staff can employ tools to support students in making good digital choices. Lastly, our district participates in several state and national consortiums, collaborating with other districts to keep informed on best practices and new resources that may support our data privacy policies.




Thank you for all you do Parents and Guardians!


Respectfully,


Dr. Kerry Wilson

Principal
