CBS Religious School Plan for 2021-2022/5782

After a few weeks moving our entire program on-line we are happy to resume in-person learning the weekend of January 29th.  Students who were learning on-line last semester are able to continue with no disruption.  Families who need to change their learning option are always welcome to contact the school office at 847-498-5652 or  

For in-person learning we are requesting that all students wear surgical masks, N95 or KN95 masks.  Students who arrive with only fabric masks will be provided with a surgical mask.  We will continue to supply surgical masks to anyone whose mask gets dirty or breaks during class.  We strongly encourage that students are vaccinated and boosted when eligible.

Please help us keep everyone safe by staying home with any illness symptoms.  If you are unsure of when to stay home, return to school, etc., please see the COVID Decision Tree below.  We have found this tree from District 28 to be easy to understand and follow.  Please contact the school with any questions or concerns and we can help guide you.  The support and communication of our families has been invaluable!  Thank you.
