    Dear District 113 Community, 

    Following up on the November 19 Special Meeting, the Board voted unanimously last night to:

    • Affirm the transition to Remote Learning Plus Virtual Services effective November 21 due to the current high level of community COVID-19 transmission
    • Transition back to Remote Learning Plus In-Person Services when the pandemic metrics allow
    • Develop more academic-based services to be offered when the risk allows a transition to the Remote Learning Plus In-Person Services
    • Reassess school operations in February for the rest of the academic year  

    This approach is aligned with how the Board has reviewed data and recommendations in the last several months. I would like to thank our teachers and other staff who continue to engage our students through the many remote services that are running while we wait for this current surge of the virus to subside.

    We are grateful to our families, our staff and our community for all they have done to support our students during this incredibly difficult time. While this Thanksgiving may not be like the ones we have celebrated in previous years, it is still a time to be grateful. 

    Please continue to practice the three Ws - wash your hands, wear a mask, watch your distance.

    Jodi Shapira
    Board President
