Returning to School

The Illinois State Board of Education in alignment with both the Illinois Governor's Office and Illinois Department of Public Health has provided guidance which will allow students to return to in person instruction.  D187 is working diligently to ensure all recommended safety measures are in place on the first day of school. 

 The Illinois State Board of Education supports Illinois State Superintendent of Education Dr. Carmen I. Ayala in making the following declaration after the conclusion of the current academic school year, subject to favorable public health conditions at that time: Beginning with the 2021-22 school year, all schools must resume fully in-person learning for all student attendance days, provided that, pursuant to 105 ILCS 5/10-30 and 105 ILCS 5/34-18.66, remote instruction be made available for students who are not eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine and are under a quarantine order by a local public health department or the Illinois Department of Public Health.

 If you would like to discuss this guidance further or have concerns given your child’s medical needs please email the Director of Special Education, Dr. Monique Auxila at or by phone at 847-689-6333.
