Dear District 90 Families, Faculty, and Staff,
It has come to our attention that Oak Park Mayor Anan Abu-Taleb has declared a local state of emergency under the Illinois Municipal Code due to the spread of COVID-19 virus and is urging Oak Park residents to stay home to protect the public health. Oak Park Public Health Director Mike Charley also issued a public order that requires residents to shelter in place effective Friday, March 20 through Friday, April 3.
Please be aware that the Village of River Forest is NOT currently under a Shelter-In-Place order, as indicated by this clarifying statement from the Village. Please click the link for a statement from the Village of River Forest:
Please click the following links for additional information about the Shelter-In-Place order in Oak Park:
Since the Shelter-In-Place order includes Oak Park and River Forest High School, District 90 schools will be closed from Tuesday, March 31 – Friday, April 3. As staff and families are aware, District 90 schools are presently scheduled for closure until Monday, March 30, under directives from Gov. Pritzker and the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE). District 90 will now be extending our E-Learning initiative for the week of March 30 – April 3. Spring Break is still scheduled in District 90 from March 23 – March 27, and E-Learning will not take place during Spring Break. At this time, we unable to confirm if the additional closure dates will be considered “Act of God” days, but please be assured that more information will be forthcoming.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Ed Condon, Ph.D.
