In response to recent guidance from the Cook County Department of Public Health, the Board of Education approved several revisions to the school district's COVID-19 testing program for students and staff.
To keep our school community safe, students must continue to practice social distancing, wear face coverings, and monitor their health, regardless of vaccination status. If your student is exhibiting symptoms,
please contact the school nurse’s office before sending your student to school.
Below is a summary of the changes:
Students and Staff Participating in Higher-Risk Activities
Unvaccinated students and staff participating in all sports and high-risk activities will be required to take a saliva-based COVID-19 test every week.
Vaccinated students and staff participating in high-risk activities will be removed from the required testing program after submitting a copy of their vaccine card.
Students can upload a copy of their vaccination card online at any time.
All Other Students and Staff
Unvaccinated students and staff are strongly encouraged to take a saliva-based COVID-19 test every week, even if they are not participating in higher-risk activities.
Vaccinated students and staff also have the option of testing on a weekly basis.
