Health and Safety Guidelines

What steps are being taken to ensure a healthy school environment for staff and students?

The Illinois Department of Public Health regulations will continue to be maintained and enforced by all D205 campuses. The protocol will include:

  • Using appropriate personal protective equipment, including face coverings

  • Prohibiting more than 50 people from gathering in one space

  • Observing social distancing requirements to greatest extent possible

  • Conducting symptom screenings and temperature checks that individuals entering school buildings are symptom free 

  • Increasing school-wide cleaning and disinfection

Is there a limit on the number of people allowed in a classroom?

There are state and local public health orders limiting the size of groups to 50 people in one space. We will know more about group gathering limitations when information becomes available later this summer. 

What is the plan for cleaning schools during the school week?

The D205 Facilities Department is dedicated to providing a clean, safe, and well-maintained environment that supports all educational activities. The focus on cleaning for health, which includes an emphasis on disinfection of health sensitive areas, where bacteria or viruses are most likely to be transmitted.

What if a school or the district receives word of a positive COVID-19 case or outbreak?

If a virus outbreak requires the closure of the district or individual schools, we will be ready to serve students in a remote environment.
