COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information
This page is designed to provide District 38 parents, students, and staff, resources regarding COVID-19 and updates for our school community.
School Nurse: 847-853-3893, firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: If your child had been in close contact with a COVID-19 positive affected individual at school, you would have received personal communication about the next steps which may include quarantining or getting tested. If you do not receive that communication, it is safe for your student to return to school.
The following dashboard contains District 38 metrics to help determine In-Person vs. Remote Learning while staying focused on our goals for health, safety, and instructional effectiveness. These metrics provide general guidance. We will also continue to closely follow situational updates from the CDC, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), and the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE). We also work very closely with the Cook County Department of Public Health to guide our response to illness.
Although we cannot control all variables outside of our community, we re-opened the building safely while being prepared to adjust operations, should the public health situation or regulatory environment change. Depending on the circumstances with the pandemic, either locally, regionally, or across the state–the District may revert to a full whole-school Remote Learning platform for all students or a return to a full-day In-Person schedule.
The metrics report will be updated weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Summary of Student and Staff Status graph will contain active COVID-19 cases as of the date indicated. The 7-Day Rolling Positivity Rate graph utilizes 12% (updated percentage includes both probable and confirmed COVID-19 cases) as the threshold to consider whole-school Remote Learning based on ZIP-code specific data. This 12% threshold is used by the state for considering whether economic reopening plans need to be rolled back.
The following information is based on a total of 564 individuals, which includes students, faculty/staff, contractors, and volunteers. Temporary Remote Learning or Working includes students or staff who have been placed in temporary Remote Learning due to symptoms or identification of being a close contact and are in quarantine.
