Safety Measures Overview
Back to School in U-46 and across the country looks different this year. Safety, always a core value, remains even more at the forefront as we consider how we work, teach, and learn together amid a global pandemic.
As we welcome back our students for in-person instruction under our Hybrid Model, the primary four safety measures required of our staff, students, and community members when we are together at school sites and U-46 facilities are as follows:
- To self certify daily by clicking this form that we do not have a fever or any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19. To learn more about self certification for students and staff, click here.
- To properly wear face coverings as we enter U-46 facilities and keeping them on during the school day, with social distancing. Face coverings are also required while waiting for and while riding a U-46 bus.
- To maintain a safe social distance of at least six feet between each other.
- To wash our hands frequently.
We recognize that these are still new practices for all of us and we will be working with our students to help ease that transition over the next few months and ensure compliance by all those who share our space in schools. Signs will be posted throughout school buildings and U-46 facilities, on floors and walls, reminding everyone of our new requirements. Bilingual public safety announcements will be broadcast twice a day during school to remind staff and students of all safety measures and requirements.

Districtwide Cleaning Procedures
The District’s safety procedures and practices are based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Illinois State Board of Education’s (ISBE) guidance, as well as the three local health departments (Kane, DuPage, and Cook) that oversee portions of our school district. Students, staff members and family members will notice more signage on our school and facility doors and walls.
We ask that our staff, students, families and community members adhere to these guidelines as we all do our part to stay healthy. We will get through this time together.
