Dear Inter-Lakes Families:
Re: Confirmed Cases (2) COVID-19 at ILES
Maintaining Current Mitigation Level IL 2-IL Yellow for 9/11/21 through 9/17/21
Today, we learned of two (2) confirmed cases of COVID-19 for members of the Inter-Lakes Elementary School community. Our well wishes are extended to these individuals and their families.
Families of individuals who may have shared classroom space have been contacted by ILES today; these calls are complete. Lunches at ILES include a full grade-level; students are seated with their class. Also, children play at recess with members of their grade-level. The two (2) confirmed cases for today are from grade 4. Not all grade 4 families were contacted; only families from the impacted classrooms. If you received a call that your child may have been exposed, please refer to the information sheet (click here) which will provide you with additional information and guidelines as recommended by the Division of Health and Human Services.
Additionally, please be advised that the data on our website’s COVID Dashboard reflects two (2) additional cases at Inter-Lakes Middle/High School and one (1) additional case at Inter-Lakes Elementary School; all of which have not been in school this year. Our objective is to keep the Dashboard up-to-date with known cases for our school communities.
As we are in the process of transferring our communication information system from Honeywell Instant Alert to Send It, this notification has been sent to all families via Alma. Future notifications will be sent via Send It, to those families who have indicated they want to receive COVID updates and information. If you have not yet set up your Send It account or need assistance, please contact your child’s school as soon as possible.
Mitigation level for 9/11/21 through 9/17/21
Local and State data were reviewed yesterday, and based on current metrics the School District will maintain our current mitigation level of IL 2-IL Yellow. The data and notes from the Covid Team can be found by clicking here.
A general reminder, it is important to keep children home even with the mildest of symptoms. Thank you to our families for your ongoing support and partnership. Be well, Inter-Lakes!
