FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT
 

 

October 2020 

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As you have probably heard, Covid-19 statistics in DuPage County have increased. We follow weekly statistics from the DuPage County Department of Health (DCDH) regarding new cases in the county, youth cases in the county and positive test results (positivity). DCDH classifies each of these as either minimal risk, moderate risk or substantial risk. Last week, they reported that youth cases and positivity were in the minimal range while new cases were in the moderate range. This generally has been the case for the last several weeks.

This week, however, positivity has moved to the moderate range and new cases per 100,000 people moved to the substantial range.

At this point we will monitor these numbers closely and discuss our options with the DCDH. We plan to remain open under the current plan. We have many factors working in our favor. We have had no cases of Covid among staff or students. Should this happen, you will be notified. 

In addition to the school metrics noted above, other factors which go into our decision-making include the number of cases in our community, the cases in our community among school-age children, our school attendance trends, and teacher attendance, specifically regarding the availability of substitute teachers. 

We may get to a point where we need to shift our instructional plan to fully remote for a period of time. It is important that families plan for this possibility. 

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during these very unusual times. And remember to practice the 3W‘s: Wash your hands! Watch your distance! And Wear a mask! 

 

Sincerely,

John K. Butts

Superintendent
