Dr. Janean FriedmanDear Emmons Parents,

The Illinois State Board of Education passed a resolution this week that shows their commitment to in-person learning for this fall. The resolution requires schools to only offer remote instruction for students who are NOT eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine AND are under a quarantine order. Remote instruction will be temporary and only during the quarantine period. The student would have to meet both qualifications. Students 12 and older will not be allowed to participate in remote instruction since they are eligible to receive the vaccine. This is important information for each family to have as they make decisions about vaccinating and school planning for next year. The Illinois State Board of Education is planning on releasing a FAQ sheet in the near future that will provide further clarification. The mask mandate for schools continues to be in place even during graduation ceremonies which will occur next week. Please congratulate any 8th grader in your neighborhood!

Also, Antioch Community High School sent us the link and flyers for all summer camps they are offering to our students. You can find the flyers in the virtual backpack and at the ACHS website. Now is a great time to make plans to keep our kids busy all summer!
