Governor Pritzker announced today that Tier 2 mitigations will go into effect for our region on Wednesday. These mitigations will not impact school. However, please work hard and be safe to keep Covid from spreading. If the numbers continue to increase, schools may have to close. I sincerely appreciate everyone's efforts in keeping our students and staff safe this year as we have remained in school!!
