Dear Henry-Senachwine Families:

Recently, Illinois school districts received updated school guidance for the 2021-22 school year  from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).  Also, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) has issued a declaration mandating resuming in-person learning, with limited exceptions, for 2021-22 school year.  A copy of the most recent CDC and IDPH guidance can be found by clicking the links below:

CDC Guidance:

Guidance for COVID-19 Prevention in K-12 Schools and ECE Programs

IDPH Guidance:

We are in the process of reviewing all guidance as we develop our plan to return to school for the upcoming 2021-22 school year.  Again, we truly appreciate your patience and understanding as we review the most recent guidance and plan accordingly.  We will keep you informed of pertinent information and updates.
