COVID Health Protocols
Please continue to support us as you monitor your child daily for symptoms. If your child has symptoms, please keep them home and complete a COVID test to return to school. Effective March 22nd, due to the LOW COVID-19 Community levels and updated IDPH guidance, we are approved to use antigen or PCR tests (including HOME tests) to clear a symptomatic individual to return to school. Antigen tests are available in our school nurse offices should a child or staff member exhibit symptoms during the school day. We can accept a PCR test (including a rapid PCR) or an Antigen test. If using a home test, please provide an image of the test result including the date and name of the individual tested to your school nurse.

Updates in District 35
Effective Monday, February 28, 2022: District 35 schools will be a mask optional environment for all, aligned with the CDC guidance. District 35 buses and school transportation will now also be a mask optional environment.
We thank our parents and staff for the care, patience, and partnership you have shown throughout all phases of this pandemic. We ask for your ongoing partnership to ensure that our schools remain welcoming and safe environments for all students to learn and thrive regardless of personal masking decisions. As we navigate this next phase, District 35 will lead with respect and empathy.
Our district is a member of TrueNorth Educational Cooperative 804. We share resources with 17 other school districts in our region so that we can provide every student the opportunity to learn and reach their full potential. Through TrueNorth, our students can access academic and behavior support, and our staff can engage in high-quality professional learning that impacts student growth here in District 35. TrueNorth (formerly NSSED, or Northern Suburban Special Education District), is committed to the possibilities in every learner, every day. Please visit truenorth804.org to learn more about the cooperative and watch an introduction video.

Thank you for your support of this critical safety measure.
