Covid-19 Town Hall
We recently had a Town Hall forum focused on the question, “How is Covenant planning for the start of school in August?” Dan Treier (the current board chairperson), Mitch Backes (the incoming board chairperson), and Tom Stoner, our head of school, brought updates to the Covenant community and spent time answering questions during a virtual Q&A session.

Governor Pritzker's "Restore Illinois" 5-Phase Plan
We must enter Phase 4 in order to return students to our classrooms. Infection rates and hospitalizations must continue to decline. Restaurants will reopen and travel will resume at that time. Gatherings of 50 or more will then be allowed.
Phase 5 will allow mass gatherings again and will only be reached when a vaccine is widely available.
At this point we do not know exactly if/how private schools might be impacted differently from public schools with regard to the freedom to return our students to school. We fully anticipate that it will be an option for us to meet on campus in person come August, and we want to do our best to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and families.
