Superintendent Memo

DATE:            February 17, 2022

RE:                 COVID Protocol Update


On February 15, 2022, the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR) voted to temporarily suspend the Illinois Department of Public Health's emergency rules concerning COVID-19 protocols for K-12 schools. This action by JCAR effectively means that, for now, there are no enforceable state mandates for COVID-19 mitigation measures for K-12 schools, including masking and testing.


As a result, beginning Tuesday, February  22, 2022,  Cahokia School District No. 187 will be mask optional for all students and staff in our schools until such time that circumstances  change. Please  note  that federal law still requires  staff and students to wear masks while on buses. All students who ride buses will still be required to wear masks, so please  have  your children still bring a mask  with them.


Cahokia School District No. 187 will continue to practice mitigation strategies that are known to support a healthy school environment,  and  therefore  Cahokia  School District No. 187 strongly encourages proper mask-wearing and social distancing while indoors on school property. Cahokia School District No. 187 will continue to offer Shield Covid-19 testing for staff and students on a voluntary basis. Further, any staff or student that is having COVID-19 symptoms should stay home for the safety of all.


The JCAR vote does not affect the authority of local health departments to issue isolation and quarantine orders. Thus, any staff or student that receives an order of quarantine or isolation from the Health Department will not be permitted to attend school. Cahokia School District No. 187 will continue to work closely with Health Department to maintain a safe learning environment.


We understand that this change will be met with differing responses from all stakeholders. Cahokia School District No. 187 expects each of our students and community members to treat each other with civility, understanding and respect. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as we continue to work together to provide safety, support, and education to the students of Cahokia School District No. 187.
