Masks are required for all persons in all school buildings per the Governor’s Executive Order 2021-18. Universal masking per the order, as endorsed by the CDC, IDPH, and ISBE has been included in SD 308 Board Policy 7:165. Persons without proper use of a face mask will not be permitted to enter the building. Failure to comply with a school board policy will result in disciplinary action as outlined in the Student Rights and Responsibilities Code. While outdoors, masking is not required.
- Students who have a medical contraindication to using a face covering may request an exemption or an accommodation, such as wearing a face shield with additional social distance. An exemption request form must be completed by a medical professional and submitted to the district for approval.
