COVID PROTOCOL UPDATE (February 7, 2022)

Parents, Faculty, and Staff,

On Friday, February 4, 2022, the Sangamon County Circuit Court granted a temporary restraining order affecting certain school districts and specific individuals in those districts. Our District was not a party to this case.

District 157 will maintain its COVID-19 mitigation measures and protocols. We will continue to require masking for everyone while indoors at school and while on school transportation and follow our current practice for exclusion of individuals who are close contacts.

Greetings Hoover-Schrum Memorial School District 157 Family,

We are in our third month of school for the 2022-2023 year, and things are progressing very well. We started off the school year with great enthusiasm and it continues today, thanks to our teachers, students, and our administrative teams.  With the same level of enthusiasm, I ask our community members to continue to find ways to support our students and teachers. We are always looking for volunteers, tutors, and mentors, etc. to support our schools.  We have partnered with the community leaders and service outreach programs to ensure our students have every asset needed to succeed. 

We recently started a number of athletic activities and academic support programs for our students.  Our students’ engagement in and out the classroom is vital to learning. Their experiences outside of the classroom are as much a part of school and can often be motivators to stay active and involved. It takes many people to make our extra-curricular activities a possibility. Please check our schools’ website for information about sporting events, lunch schedules, and other engagement activities and offerings on each campus, and we hope you will consider ways that you can become involved as well.
