Gatherings and travel in and out of communities present a high risk of spreading COVID-19 infection. In our current situation, with a rising prevalence of the virus, attending even small gatherings that mix households, or traveling to areas that are experiencing high rates of positivity, is not advised and is potentially dangerous. Please, travel only if necessary.
Remember that all travel, even travel within Illinois can increase your risk of exposure. CDC reminds us that when driving, making stops along the way for gas, food, or bathroom breaks can put you in close contact with other people. Safety information for various modes of transportation can be found on the CDC website Protect Yourself When Using Transportation.
If you are planning to travel, we ask that you notify your school health office and arrange a return to school date based on the required quarantine. If we remain in an adaptive pause, then your child will continue to participate in remote learning. If we are in-person, the schools will reach out to you with a plan for your child while in quarantine.
Our district was featured in the September issue of Leadership Matters, published by the Illinois Association of School Administrators for our work to open our schools to in-person learning. Please visit page 5 to view the interview with Superintendent, Dr. Merryl Brownlow.
