Show Appreciation to our Nurses
We all know the global pandemic has caused extreme stress on everyone, but it is important to show grace to our frontline workers that are making tough decisions on matters that are out of their control. Recently, our registered nurses at the school buildings have been forced to make difficult calls to staff and parents to inform them that they or their family members must quarantine and are not allowed to return to school for a specified period of time. Please know that these decisions are not made lightly and our nurses are passing along information that is provided to them by the Kendall County Health Department, with guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH). Both of these entities must follow rules set forth from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We are all in this together.
Vaccinations for D88 and PASEC Employees
We are excited to report that 300 of our staff members have received the Moderna vaccination from Kendall County Health Department. We are hopeful that this is just one of the many measures that will lead to a full return for all students in our district sooner than later!
