Parent Update August 19th


August 19, 2022

Dear CUSD 201 Families,

The start of the school year has been great. The CUSD 201 staff has set a positive tone in our schools. It is great seeing the students in the classrooms and hallways.

There have been some hiccups with transportation which is typical for the start of the school year. If you are experiencing any problems with transportation, please contact the District Office.

The District will be providing free COVID-19 testing every Monday starting on Monday, August 22. The testing is optional. Please use this link (CUSD 201 COVID-19 testing) if you wish to enroll your child for testing.

DuPage County is at a medium transmission level (DCHD COVID-19 Dashboard). The District no longer requires students to wear masks indoors. Students have the option to wear a mask.

CUSD 201 has updated its COVID-19 protocols based on the guidance from the CDC, IDPH, and DCHD. You can review the protocols on our website or use this link (CUSD 201 COVID-19 Protocols).

Parents should keep children with COVID-19 symptoms at home. 

The District will be following the CDC Guidance for Schools. Students who test positive for COVID-19 will need to quarantine for five days. A student can return to school on the sixth day but will be required to wear a mask until day ten.

Please remember that this is a very fluid situation. The CDC may update its guidelines throughout the year. As the CDC changes its guidance, the District will adapt ours.

National School Lunch Program:

The National School Lunch Program is not operating under an emergency order. Only students who qualify are eligible for a free breakfast and lunch regardless of income level.

Thank you for your continued support of CUSD 201.

Take care,

Kevin Carey
CUSD 201
