Dear BESD #53 Families and Staff, We are aware that there have been recent court cases and verdicts regarding face masking, exclusions, and other related topics. These verdicts have clearly impacted about 145 School Districts across the state in the past 48 hours. BESD #53 was not listed in these cases. BESD #53 already had a scheduled Special Board Meeting for Tuesday at 7:00 pm for possible School Board Action on Masking. Many of the concerns presented in the new rulings will be considered on Tuesday night by the Board of Education. Sincerely, Dr. Adam Ehrman Superintendent, Bourbonnais Elementary School District #53
The Special Board Meeting that was scheduled for tonight, February 3rd at 7:00 pm, has been cancelled.

Dear Parents, As the funeral of fallen Bradley Police Sargent Rittmanic concludes and the processional travels to Wilmington Grave Site, this may effect Pre-K routes. We will make every effort to stay on time, but times might be a little delayed. Thank you for your understanding in this tragic time.
Hi, just a reminder that there are no after school intervention programs for grades 1-3 this week. The program resumes are Tuesday January 11th, 2022. Thanks!
Dear BESD #53 Families, We are fully aware that the IDPH has adopted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance on shortening isolation and quarantine periods for COVID-19 for the general public as of December 30, 2021. The new guidance states that everyone who tests positive for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, should isolate for 5 days after onset of symptoms, or 5 days after the date of positive test if no symptoms are present. However, the IDPH has declared that schools should continue to follow the IDPH COVID-19 School Guidance for schools, which means that the shortening of the isolation period doesn't apply to schools. Per the Illinois State Board of Education - “The CDC expects to issue updated guidance for isolation and quarantine in school settings shortly. We understand that you are eager for this guidance, and we share your sense of urgency. At this time, please continue to follow the guidance currently in place. ISBE is working with IDPH to update the School Guidance as soon as we know more.” Thus as soon as BESD #53 is provided with any update we will communicate any changes to our families, students, and staff. Dr. Adam Ehrman, Superintendent
