|Dear Hanover Highlands community,
I was notified on 11/6/20 that we have had two positive test cases for COVID-19 at Hanover Highlands. One was on 11/3/20. This individual was last at school on 10/20/20. The other was on 10/29/20 and this individual was last at school on 10/27/20. We are coordinating our efforts with the Cook County Department of Public Health to promptly identify individuals who have had recent close contact with the individual to prevent further spread within our school and community. As you may be aware, we have had five COVID positive cases in our school community since 10/26/20. Due to this, we will be placing Hanover Highlands on an adaptive pause which means that all students and staff will be working remotely. Daily lessons will continue remotely. At the earliest, we would return to a Hybrid Model on 11/23/20.
We are following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the state and local health departments for best practices and procedures to protect everyone’s health.
You can help us prevent the spread of COVID-19 by reminding your children of the following procedures.
We understand your desire to know who the individual is so that you can assess your possibility of exposure. We are providing as much information as we are able to share with you. Federal privacy laws prevent District 54 from sharing the name or other specifics about the individual.
Thank you for your cooperation and support as we work together to provide a safe environment at school. Contact me with any questions you may have.
