Masks & Social Distancing Information
- Masks will be universally required across all schools and departments by staff, students, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status. This requirement aligns to the Governor’s Executive Order and the latest guidance from the CDC, IDPH, and our three local health agencies.
- All spectators must wear a mask at both indoor and outdoor U-46 events.
- All passengers and drivers on buses must wear a mask regardless of vaccination status pursuant to CDC and IDPH guidance.
- Bus drivers who are alone on a bus may unmask.
- 3 feet to the extent possible plus mask is best strategy. U-46 has worked at elementary especially to ensure 3 feet to the extent possible.
- 3 feet of social distance in middle and high school may not be possible in all areas (such as lunch, band, and chorus). Universal masking even for the fully vaccinated will help prevent any spread.
