COVID-19 Mitigation Information for the 2022-2023 School Year
Last updated: August 12, 2022
In support of our priority to keep students healthy and in school, during the August 9th Board of Education Meeting, the Board formally adopted the Resolution Regarding COVID-19 Mitigation Plan for the 2022-23 School Year. This resolution includes the following notable health guidance and protocol information for the 2022-23 school year:
Except as noted in the resolution, masking at District schools and property for all students, families, staff, and volunteers will be optional and not required.
School personnel will not be conducting contact tracing. Students who may be identified as “close contacts” to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 will not be excluded from attending school.
Students who test positive for COVID-19
Are required to remain home for five days from the date of a positive test or the onset of symptoms.
May return to school five days after the onset of symptoms or testing positive, if fever-free for 24 hours.
Upon returning to school, must wear a well-fitting mask for five (5) full days after the five (5) day isolation period (days 6-10). Students who choose not to wear a mask may return ten (10) days after the onset of symptoms or testing positive.
Upon returning to school, will be directed to sit in a specified area during lunch for five (5) full days after the five-day isolation period (days 6-10).
Students Participating in Extracurricular Activities
The district and all students and staff will comply with all COVID-19 mitigation requirements imposed by IHSA or athletic/extracurricular conference officials, or competition host sites.

COVID-19 Data Dashboard Update
During the last two academic years, the district maintained a public-facing COVID-19 data dashboard that tracked the number of positive cases in each school. The district will not host or maintain a COVID-19 data dashboard as we begin the new school year. However, this decision may be revisited if conditions change that affirm the need for a data dashboard.
