Re-Opening 2022-2023

Currently, we are not receiving two-week rolling averages from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and instead are using our internal self-reporting process to determine positivity rates which can be found on our dashboard. If the positivity rates were to reach the 6% level, we would activate the chart below.


NEW: The CDC is no longer recommending weekly screening of COVID-19 for asymptomatic students in a school setting, therefore, the District will no longer be offering SHIELD testing. Students and families may receive at-home rapid tests for home administration while supplies last. Rapid tests for home use may be requested at your school building while supplies last.

The District will continue to require quarantine for all students and staff who test positive for COVID-19

Sanitizing and deep cleaning of classrooms and common areas continues for the 2022-2023 school year

District 99 students and staff will no longer be required to have their temperature taken at our buildings prior to entry. 

All students and staff testing positive for COVID-19 with positive tests results are asked to quarantine for 5 days in accordance with IDPH/CDC

Please continue to monitor your child's health at home. If your child has any noticeable COVID-19 symptoms, get them tested if needed.

Children who are not sick and not showing COVID-19 symptoms, or previously considered a close contact, no longer need to quarantine.

***These protocols have been made in collaboration with District administrators, the Board of Education and Cicero Council teachers union.***
