Two staff members in District 91 have tested positive for COVID-19, according to a memo to parents and guardians from Supt. Lou Cavallo on Oct. 30.

Cavallo said the staff members didn’t contract the virus at work. Several other staff members, who have been in close contact with people positive for COVID-19, are quarantined.

Teachers have been instructing students remotely from their classrooms since the beginning of the school year.

“As you have likely seen on the news, Illinois is experiencing a spike in COVID cases,” reads the memo from Cavallo. “District 91 has not been immune to this spike.”

Additionally, plans to start bringing small groups of students into the buildings has been postponed until at least Dec. 1, at which time the district will look at current COVID-19 metrics to “make a decision about bringing back our instructional level special education students in small groups as we had planned.”

Cavallo reminded parents, guardians and families to “please be diligent about maintaining health and safety protocols.”
