Rising County COVID Cases May Close Schools

Big picture

Hello District 103 Community,

As predicted, the rise of cases of COVID-19 in Lake County continues. As you will see on the Lake County School Decision Dashboard, the trajectory of the curve of incidences continues to grow and is deemed to be substantial. As this trend continues, the Lake County School Decision Dashboard will change from hybrid learning to virtual learning. This change in the dashboard could occur as early as this week.

Due to the trajectory of the curve, the Illinois Department of Public Health may have to impose mitigation actions for Region 9, which includes Lake and McHenry counties. You will find the mitigation actions on the Actions to Combat a Resurgence of Covid-19 website. If imposed, the State would most likely begin with Tier 1 actions.

Because of the trend of rising cases in Lake County, we may need to institute a pause for ALL in-person learning for a period of time. At a minimum, this pause would be for 10 calendar days. As stated on the Lake County School Decision Dashboard, we need to be below an incidence rate of 14 cases per 100,000 for 7 calendar days before returning to a hybrid model and allowing students back into school. Vigilance in following the 3W’s: Wearing a mask, Watching your distance, and Washing your hands is imperative in keeping our schools open.

We will keep you informed if closing our D103 schools is necessary. Thank you for your partnership as we raise our Leaders in Learning.


Scott Warren, Ed.D.

Superintendent of D103 Schools
