Lincoln Lions Update
December 18, 2020
The Board heard a COVID-19 update at its December 9 meeting.
COVID-19 community metrics have decreased since the November Board meeting, as the increase in cases post-Thanksgiving was not as large as anticipated.
Additionally, staff members testing positive for COVID-19 during the Adaptive Pause period are at the same level as when school was in session. Paired with contact tracing information, this data shows that our schools are not the source of most COVID-19 infections.
Due to this information, District 15 intends to resume in-person learning after Winter Break on Tuesday, January 5. We ask that families who travel for the holidays voluntarily quarantine for two weeks (or revised quarantine lengths based upon IDPH guidance) upon returning home. Concurrent learning will be available to in-person students needing to stay home through Friday, January 15. After that date, concurrent instruction will only be available to in-person students who are in quarantine due to illness or exposure.
Information on how to request concurrent instruction from January 5-15 will be shared with families prior to school resuming in January.

Palatine Public Library: SORA is Here!
SORA is a free digital and audiobook online library for independent reading. SORA is the student version of OverDrive. CCSD15 has created a “Getting Started Guide” for parents. There is also a district website to inform and support parents and students. A library card is not needed; only a CCSD15 email account.
