AURORA – On Tuesday, Indian Prairie School District 204 has announced that it will continue remote learning through November 27.
“In keeping with our plan, in order to transition from remote learning to our hybrid model, the health department must report a move from Substantial to Moderate Community Transmission for two consecutive weeks,” said IPSD 204 superintendent Dr. Adrian Talley said. “At this point, we will continue to monitor the weekly updates from the health department and will remain in remote learning through November 27, which is the end of Thanksgiving break.”
Talley cited increasing COVID numbers in DuPage Country for the decision. “The DuPage County Health Department’s updated weekly metrics continue to show a significant increase in COVID-19 cases. In the past two weeks, the new cases per 100,000 increased from 152 to 312. There also continues to be a substantial increase in youth cases, with the health department reporting a 56 percent increase over the previous week.”
A hybrid of in-person and remote learning was to begin on Monday, November 13. For the full announcement from IPSD 204, visit www.ipsd.org.
