May is Mental Health Awareness Month
Mental health is essential to our overall health. The importance of attending to mental health has become even more pronounced during the COVID-19 pandemic. Working to fight the stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for policies that support people with mental health illness and their families are the focus of Mental Health Awareness Month. In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we are posting signs and placing green ribbons around the trees at each of our schools.

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.
