Important News

  • Daily Symptom Check Reminder

    With the prevalence of the highly contagious Delta variant combined with the fact that our students under the age of 12 have not had the opportunity to be vaccinated, we absolutely need the cooperation of our parents in keeping our children safe at school, as well as giving our kids the best chance to remain in school where they belong.
     
    Please check daily and keep your child home and report to the school if he or she is sick or exhibits any potential COVID symptoms, including a fever (100.4°F or higher), headache, shortness of breath, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea, new cough, new loss of sense of taste or smell, muscle or body aches or fatigue from an unknown cause. Please do likewise if your child is a close contact to a positive or potentially positive case.
     
    For more information, please take a look at the Stay Healthy, Stay Smart! plan for opening the school year. We truly appreciate your cooperation!

  • COVID Testing Program

    Cass School District 63 has formed a partnership with Northshore Clinical Labs to provide a comprehensive on-site polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing program. We have staff trained to administer on-site testing when symptoms are present at school for students or staff, and soon Northshore will also provide weekly screening testing as well. Parents will have the option of electing to participate in symptomatic testing when needed, asymptomatic screening weekly at school and when it is available, testing to remain in school for unvaccinated students who are close contacts at school when they meet stringent criteria. Parents who elect to participate in any of the testing opportunities can also express a preference for your child to undergo a light nasal swab OR cheek swab for the testing. More information is available under the Stay Healthy, Stay Smart! plan.

  • Reminders on Proper Masking

    Particularly in the school setting, it is critical that proper masks be worn at all times, and that the masks are properly worn. Guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control provide that masks should have two or more layers of breathable fabric and should NOT have exhalation valves or vents. Masks should completely cover the nose and mouth and fit snugly with no gaps. Following is a simple summary of the guidelines from the CDC. Please let us know if you have any questions.
