Our goal this year is to provide a safe learning environment for students and staff in District #7, and be able to sustain that learning environment five days a week throughout the school year.

On July 9, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control released guidance for K-12 schools regarding the 2021-2022 school year. The guidance was quickly endorsed by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH). This guidance provided school districts with the opportunity to determine the prevention strategies which could be implemented by school districts in an effort to limit the spread and impact of COVID-19 on schools.

This plan has been created through the work of the District #7 administrative teams, with a great deal of stakeholder input. We have had the input of our task force and medical professionals, members of the Board of Education, and our community through emails and phone calls. We have also received guidance provided by our school district’s legal counsel, insurance carriers, Madison County Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control.

We look forward to receiving your feedback and appreciate your support of District #7.
