District 207 encourages parents to consider vaccinating their children against COVID-19 if they qualify. While vaccination is NOT currently a requirement to attend school, we believe strongly that students being vaccinated is a key component of our plans to hold classes in-person next year. In addition, when contact tracing occurs, fully vaccinated students can continue attending in-person school without quarantine if they are asymptomatic. This means they would be allowed to continue with in-person school as well as participate in athletics, fine arts, clubs, practices and/or games. This really is the key to helping get back to full school participation for our students.
