The Ramsey Board of Education approved a revised version of their return to school guidelines on Monday, March 1.
Beginning the fourth quarter (Monday, March 15), the district will return to all in-person instruction. Masks will still be required.
This is due to declining local and region metrics, the transition back to Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan, the Ramsey School District’s ability to maintain low COVID related numbers, and the CDC’s announcement that public schools are not significant spreaders of COVID 19 disease.
As per IDPH and ISBE guidelines, remote learning will be made available to those students who can demonstrate a specific, severe, medical risk by returning to school. Such conditions must be identified by a medical doctor and specific evidence of the condition must be on file with the District Nurse. Students who are isolated due to a positive COVID 19 test, have specific symptoms, or who are quarantined by the local health department as a close contact, will also be placed on remote learning for the duration of their isolation/quarantine period.
All current remote learners without a doctor’s note are expected to return to in-person instruction starting March 15.
