WE ARE EXCITED TO WELCOME ALL STUDENTS BACK TO IN-PERSON LEARNING
On Wednesday, Aug. 25, schools across Cicero District 99 will welcome back more than 10,500 students to our classrooms! We have long awaited this time and we are excited to have all students and teachers back with us. We know that students learn best while they are in person, and we look forward to providing each and every student not only exciting academic opportunities, but also all support needed to educate the whole child.
In District 99, we believe we must support students emotionally, socially and academically, and we look forward to beginning our journey together in the coming weeks!
As you know, in July, State Superintendent Carmen Ayala announced all schools must resume full, in-person learning for all student attendance days. In addition, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker issued a statewide mask mandate for all Pre-K-12 schools — for all students, staff and visitors for the start of the 2021-2022 school year, regardless of vaccination status.
With these variables in mind, District 99 has the guidance needed to make decisions that will be in the best interest of all of our stakeholders.
With many children still ineligible to be vaccinated, masks are going to continue being our most effective way to help keep students — and staff — safe and in the classroom. We’re excited to welcome back our students and teachers this fall, and masks — along with other mitigating preventative measures the District has taken — will help us provide the safest and healthiest setting possible.
In addition to the new mask requirement, all schools across the District will continue to follow and implement the proper safety measures that meet the most updated health standards set by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and local health officials.
The District will also continue to provide free masks, COVID-19 testing and access to COVID-19 vaccinations for all eligible students and for the local community.
