COVID-19 Saliva Testing Results
Thank you to the over 1,900 students and over 220 staff who signed up for our first round of COVID-19 screening in District 41.
The results are being analyzed now. We will send an email and robocall today Wednesday, December 2, to let you know if we will be back in person this week. The plan is to be back in the blended in-person model starting on Thursday, December 3.
A special thank you to members of the Pandemic Response Advisory Team (PRAT) for the countless hours spent working to make this testing happen! Thank you also to the over 25 volunteers who delivered the test kits to the homes of our District 41 families. This process would not have been possible without the support from our community! Thank you.

Friday, December 18 is a scheduled SIP Day in District 41. ALL students in both remote and blended learning will participate in learning from 8:30 a.m to 11 a.m. PM classes will not be held due to teachers working on school improvement.
