Illness Monitoring

The District is working closely with the Winnebago County Health Department to monitor and reduce illnesses within our schools. It is the District’s policy to alert families when potential health concerns arise in our schools. At this time, this message is precautionary and is meant to help raise awareness regarding illness in our schools and ask families to take important precautions to limit the spread of germs and illness. As a reminder, when calling your child’s school to report their absence, please relay the symptoms they are having to the school office so that the District can continue to report to the health department accurately.
