COVID-19 Guidance for Schools

COVID-19 – Guidance for Schools

Beginning on March 17, 2020, Governor JB Pritzker via executive order directed all public and private schools in Illinois serving preĀ­-kindergarten through 12th grade students to close for educational purposes through March 30, 2020. This requirement does not affect the availability of school buildings for the provision of food or other non-educational services, nor does it affect the availability of school buildings to serve as election polling locations. Schools operated by the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice, the Illinois State Board of Education, or the Illinois Department of Human Services may remain open for educational purposes provided that these schools are able to exercise the necessary precautions to protect the health and safety of students and staff.
