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
