COVID Reporting During Winter Break


Dear Central 301 Families and Staff,

As we are getting ready for the upcoming winter holidays I want to share some good news.  Central 301 did not experience a post-Thanksgiving surge of COVID-19. Our positivity rates remain low and we have completed our second quarter of the school year. Our students and staff continue to do a great job of hand sanitizing, social distancing, and wearing masks, and our district families continue to monitor symptoms and stay home when ill. Our schools remain outbreak-free due to everyone’s diligence to safety, and for that I am extremely grateful.

Schools will be closed to outside groups during the winter break to allow our custodial crews additional time to clean and disinfect our schools as well as address maintenance tasks. If you have a student who is currently quarantined and you receive a clearance letter to return to work/school, please forward that information to your building administrator. Likewise, should staff members or students become symptomatic over the winter break, we request that you inform your building administrator so that we can file the proper paperwork with the Kane County Health Department.

We would like to thank you for your partnership and support, and we remain dedicated to doing what is best for our students, families and community. We continue to follow the recommendations of the Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois Department of Public Health to continue to provide learning experiences in the safest environment possible and we look forward to welcoming you back on Monday, January 4th.

In educational partnership,

Dr. Todd Stirn
