Have a great day,
Congratulations to CPS’ Citywide Spelling Bee Champion!
A huge congratulations to Isaac (8th grader), our school spelling bee champ. He qualified for the CPS’ Citywide Spelling Bee Championship, which happened yesterday, and won the bee! This is an incredible accomplishment that required hard work, persistence and determination. He will now represent Chicago at the Bee in Washington, DC!
Masking Policy Change Reminder – As a reminder, CPS announced that starting on Monday, March 14, all schools and offices will move to a mask-optional model.
We know that this will be a big change and it is important to support our students through the transition. Our counselors have presented on the topic and engaged students around their feelings about the change. There are mixed emotions around the change. The emphasis is that every student and staff member’s personal choice regarding masking is respected. It is a time to have empathy. It may be helpful to have conversations with your student around this change. We do encourage mask wearing, but it is a personal choice.
Please note there will be some situations where masking is still required. See this infographic for further information.
*Should CDPH determine that community transmission is MODERATE or HIGH, CPS will revert to a Universal Masking policy, and all individuals will be required to wear masks again.
