Hello D103 Parents,

We are seeing many students come to school not feeling well and showing signs of COVID. Some of these students have tested positive for the virus. Please follow these sick day guidelines when deciding to send your child to school. Please screen your child everyday before school to ensure they are not showing any signs of COVID:

  • Fever or chills

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Headache

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Sore throat

  • Congestion or runny nose

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Diarrhea

If your child or someone in your house is experiencing the above symptoms, please get a COVID test. It is imperative that students who are ill stay home so they do not infect anyone else at school.

If the COVID test is positive, please reach out to covidhotline@d103.org or call 847-457-9314. When reporting an absence for other illnesses, contact the school nurse.

When reporting an absence, contact the school nurse, email covidhotline@d103.org or call 847-457-9314. Please provide the following information:

  1. Student’s first name and last name

  2. Child’s grade

  3. Parent email and phone number

  4. Child's symptoms

  5. If your child tests positive for COVID, provide the date of the test and type of COVID test administered

Thank you for your cooperation in helping everyone stay healthy.

How to Sign Up for Weekly COVID Testing

D103 offers free weekly PCR testing through O’Hare Clinical labs. Testing is voluntary and requires consent to participate. We encourage everyone to sign up to take the weekly test, whether your student is vaccinated or not. If a child were to test positive, your child would need to isolate and follow the guidelines listed in the IDPH Interim Exclusion Guidance. If your child is found to be a close contact, District 103 will consult with the Lake County Health Department and follow the options listed in the IDPH Revised Public Guidance for Schools.

For information on testing, please refer to the below documents.

  • Consent Form - Please log into your child’s Unified Classroom account to access the digital form to give consent for both the PCR and BinaxNow tests. This short video will provide you with step-by-step directions for completing the form.

The next Board of Education meeting will occur at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 11. The notice and agenda can be found on the District 103 Board meeting website page.
