Superintendent discusses moving into spring carefully

Dear Glenbard Families,

We are a few months into the second semester, and I am grateful for students, families and staff following the COVID-19 safety protocols. I’m also thankful that the number of cases of COVID-19 in Glenbard continues to be small. Students are able to focus on school and participating in clubs, activities and athletics. Let’s keep this momentum going through spring break by being careful and following safe health practices.

As you likely remember, when we returned to school after winter break, we saw a spike in the number of COVID-19 cases in Glenbard, and it took time for that number to decline so we could keep school and activities safe for students, staff and the community. With spring break around the corner, it’s important that each of us stays vigilant.

Whether you are traveling or staying home for spring break, please:

● Continue with hand washing, respiratory etiquette and physical distancing

● Take advantage of free at-home testing available through the U.S. Postal Service at this link or through DuPage County’s free testing

● Stay home when sick and get tested before returning to school.

● Follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance to wear a mask indoors in counties that the CDC has identified as in the high category.

● Remember that masks are optional in school.

As we look forward to spring break, I encourage you and your family to remain cautious and help us keep the number of cases low so we can continue providing a safe learning environment when classes resume on April 4. I trust you and your family will have a relaxing spring break.
