[UPDATE] Executive Order mandating mask-wearing in schools

As part of the ruling, Illinois school districts can make their own decisions about masking and other Covid-19 mitigations.


What does this mean for District 142 Students and Staff?

  • Masking is highly recommended, but not required.
  • Masking is still required on school buses to/from school per federal law.


The health and safety of all students and staff is our highest priority. So too is our commitment to ensuring everyone feels welcome, accepted, and respected for their choice to mask or not mask. All students and staff will be treated equally, regardless of masking choice. Respect for everyone will be upheld. Bullying, judgment, or mistreatment in any form regarding masking will not be tolerated.


Please refer to the attached flyer with additional Covid-19 mitigation information.


As always, please reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
