Dear Hollis Staff, Students, Parents, and Community,
As you may already know, Illinois Governor, J. B. Pritzker held a COVID-19 press conference today where he issued new rules regarding indoor masking, educational employee vaccination, and testing requirements.
The indoor masking order, statewide, begins Monday, August 30, and the requirement for educational employees to begin their COVID-19 vaccine process is September 5. All educational employees must get and provide proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or submit to testing weekly (or more frequently if ordered by the local health department).
We will communicate internally with our staff on the specifics of how we will verify staff vaccination status and coordinate weekly testing as appropriate.
Our consistent and continuous aim is safety, learning, and communication. We’re proud to be open, full day and full time and fully in person. Thank you for your support and understanding, as we continue to provide a safe in-person learning environment for all of our Hollis Hawks.
