Is it safe to come to school?
The Lake County Health Department has reported that people should “go about their lives”, including going to school. If any conditions change such that this is no longer true, we will IMMEDIATELY notify all CHSD117 parents and staff, along with our community partners.
Is the school district helping ensure our kids wash their hands often?
We have delivered additional supplies of hand sanitizer to all of our schools. In addition, our schools are encouraging hand washing. Students may also ask their teacher to go to the bathroom to wash their hands.
What You Can Do for Your Family Members
- • Continue to practice effective hand washing techniques
- • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
- • Avoid contact with people who are sick
- • Stay home at the first sign of any symptoms of illness
- • Contact your physician if you have question/concerns regarding your personal health history and implications of Coronavirus COVID-19
- • Remain calm and reassuring
