Parent Update September 9th


September 9, 2022

Dear CUSD 201 Families,

The train crossing on Cass Avenue will be closed on Tuesday, September 13, 2022. The District has alerted WestWay so that they can adjust the bus routes. You may need to allow extra time if you drive your student to school (BNSF Crossing Closure Sept. 13).

CUSD 201 and Westmont Pharmacy will be hosting a vaccination clinic. The tentative date is Saturday, September 24, at Westmont Junior High School. The clinic will be from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Once more information is available, it will be shared with the school community.

Northshore will be offering optional COVID-19 testing on Monday, September 12. 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. 

The IDPH has updated the school decisions making tree to help schools to know when to exclude students (School Decision Tree).

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.

Thank you for your continued support.

Take care,

Kevin Carey
