DISTRICT 25's CURRENT PLAN FOR THE 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR
For any communications regarding COVID-19, visit our parent letters section of our website.
On Friday, February 25, 2022, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued the following update to their mask guidance:
Effective February 25, 2022, the CDC is exercising its enforcement discretion to not require that people wear masks on buses or vans operated by public or private school systems, including early care and education/child care programs. The CDC is making this change to align with updated guidance that no longer recommends universal indoor mask wearing in K-12 schools and early education settings in areas with a low or medium COVID-19 Community Level.
Our buildings are currently mask optional, including on school transportation (busses & taxis). Here is our most recent letter on masks in our buildings.
CONTACT TRACING & EXCLUSIONS
As of Monday, February 21, 2022, District 25 is no longer contact tracing in our buildings. COVID-19 positive cases are being excluded from our buildings for 5 days. These students will participate in the District's Academy Program. The schools will continue to notify their communities of positive cases.
The District will implement 3-foot social distancing to the greatest extent possible.
DISTRICT 25 COVID-19 DASHBOARD
The District will continue to maintain the District 25 Dashboard and monitor internal numbers.
The District will continue to offer voluntary SHIELD testing. (Parents may opt-out here)
