Good Evening. We continue to monitor our Covid numbers and plan to stay in-person as much as possible. LCUSD9 has been healthier than most surrounding schools and this has allowed us to stay fully in-person. We know numbers of Covid Positive cases and quarantines may possibly increase as seen in the area. As long as we maintain an optimal learning environment we will maintain our current schedule. Having said that, we know that it may be possible to reduce schedules, do more mitigations, remote and/or close for the day. Any days that we are not in session, will be fully made up by using our emergency days that are built into our current schedule. Also, moving to 5 day quarantines as recommended by IDPH and ISBE; will help reduce staff shortages as well. Please stay flexible as we adopt the new 5 day quarantine guidelines which should be student ready by Wednesday January 12th. Additionally, know we will try to give as much notice as possible, but this new strain moves very fast. Finally, we will be adding more specific information on our web page asap. Our goal is to maintain as much in-person learning as possible. Stay healthy, Mr. Keeney

Hello. Last week the CDC released new guidance about reducing quarantine times to 5 days and other specific changes for dealing with Covid. Recently, the Illinois Department of Public Health has announced they will be following those recommendations. LCUSD9 is waiting on more guidance from the Illinois School Board of Education to release their guidance for school districts dealing with Covid and quarantine recommendations. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we work with ISBE and the new guidances we hope to receive in the near future. Several of the recommendations may take us a few days to adopt due to the specific interventions and working through all the changes. Changes will be coming in reducing quarantine times but we are waiting on official word from the Illinois School Board of Education to provide us recommendations. Stay Healthy! Mr. Keeney
