Over the last week, the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois State Board of Education have issued updated COVID-19 guidance for schools. Based on the new information from the IDPH and ISBE, I want to share several key aspects of how AFC will go forward during this rapidly evolving period of the COVID Pandemic: From the update- "Social distance for in-person learning is now defined as 3-6 feet for students and fully vaccinated staff." Additionally school symptom screenings and temperature checks are no longer required. Please continue to monitor your students for COVID-19 at home. AFC will continue to follow our 6 feet policy as we have some staff members who are not fully vaccinated and have been successful in our efforts thus far. You may have read reports in the media that the CDC released updated guidance on wearing masks. Per the CDC: "Fully vaccinated people can: Visit with other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing. Visit with unvaccinated people from a single household who are at low risk for severe COVID-19 disease indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing. Refrain from quarantine and testing following a known exposure if asymptomatic" AFC will continue to follow our previous mask policy, regardless if you are vaccinated or not. This will continue to be our policy, because the updated guidance from IDPH and ISBE says, "All persons, including students, teachers, school nurses and other health personnel, custodial staff, public safety personnel, etc.,on the grounds of all public and nonpublic schools that serve students in prekindergarten through grade 12 must must wear a face mask at all times when in school or in transit to and from school via group conveyance..." Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns and we will provide updates as they occur. Best Regards, Michael Lindy, Superintendent AFC #275 Schools
