DISTRICT 99 UPDATES ON COVID-19
UPDATE AS OF 4/01/20 at 6 P.M.
Governor Pritzker extended Illinois stay-at-home order until April 30. The original order was set to expire April 7. Cicero District 99 is urging families to stay home as cases are projected to increase in the coming weeks.
This would mark our return date to schools for in-person instruction as
FRIDAY, MAY 1
The governor has also issued an Executive Order that
State-mandated standardized testing will be suspended.
School days will NOT be made up.
Remote/eLearning will start Monday, April 6.
In order to better meet student and parent needs, you will be asked to complete a survey online:
The results will be used so the District can modify its eLearning plan, plan professional development and train instructional and communication platforms.
Superintendent Hernandez would like to remind the community on the importance of having children connect to their classes and complete their assignments. The district is making every effort to make sure students continue to receive quality instruction and this can not be possible if they do not connect with their teachers. Parents are encouraged to make sure their children are continuing to use the reading and math tools available online.
Please help us keep everyone safe by staying home, and making sure to follow the COVID-19 prevention guidelines.
Stay safe and be well!

The Grab and Go program will begin again
Monday, April 6 with a two-day meal supply
