Dear District 41 Community,

Yesterday, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released new Covid-19 metrics based on “Covid-19 Community Level.” Click here for an explanation of the CDC Covid-19 community levels. Currently, DuPage County is in the LOW community level. This is encouraging news.

What does this mean for our schools?

We will be watching our county Covid-19 Community Levels and will continue to monitor our own internal data.

  • The CDC will now only recommend universal school masking in communities at the high level.

  • The CDC no longer requires wearing masks on school buses. Starting on Monday, masks will be recommended on school buses, but not required.

The CDC does emphasize that, “At all levels, people can wear a mask based on personal preference, informed by personal level of risk. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.”

We will continue to keep you informed as more information becomes available.

Dr. Melissa Kaczkowski
