To The RB Community:
Today, Governor JB Pritzker released an Executive Order which requires all students and staff in Illinois public schools to return to universal masking. Although the Richmond-Burton CHSD 157 Board of Education was set to approve a back to school plan making masks optional, the Governor’s Executive Order will override any local action taken by the Board of Education. Therefore, tonight’s special Board of Education meeting will be canceled, and District 157 must adopt the requirements for masking found in Executive Order.
The Richmond-Burton CHSD 157 Board of Education continues to remain committed to ensuring all students receive a full in-person education this year and are able to participate in all the wonderful activities this fall that mark the return to school .
As new information is received, the District will continue to keep students, staff and parents updated. We ask for your continued patience and support as we continue to pursue the safest and least restrictive learning environment as possible, under the current laws, for your students.
The Richmond-Burton CHSD 157 Board of Education
