Due to foreseeable inclement weather, the regular schedule board meeting has been reschedule for Tuesday, February 22, 2022 at 6:00pm
Madison Family, Earlier today, we learned of an action from the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR) which voted to reject a reintroduction of emergency rules for COVID-19 protocols in schools which include masking, testing, and exclusion. JCAR is not connected to the Illinois Appellate Court process, which we are still awaiting a ruling from. In working with our legal counsel, the impact of this committee vote means that because these emergency rules have expired, schools can only require employee vaccinations/testing, student and employee masking, and exclusion of students and employees who are close contacts from school if there is a court order or an order from the local health department. Students or staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 are able to be excluded for 5 days and those with symptoms may be sent home. As a district, we have a duty to be compliant with all state and federal mandates. As a result, beginning Wednesday, February 16, 2022, The district will recommend masks for all students and staff in our schools. Please note that federal law still requires masks on buses. The committee vote does not change this, and so students who ride buses will still be required to wear masks while on school busses. Thank you for your patience while we navigate the often changing rules related to COVID-19. Andrew Reinking Superintendent Madison CUSD #12

Madison Family, Yesterday evening, an Illinois judge ruled on two lawsuits filed by multiple teachers and more than 700 parents from across the state that challenged state-mandated COVID-19 mitigations on masking, vaccination and testing. At this time, we are in the process of reviewing the judge’s decision and will communicate with you as soon as possible on any additional impact this ruling has on Madison students and staff. As we review the decision and its impact on the District we ask for your patience. We realize the last several years have been difficult and we have strived to provide the consistency in education you expect from the District. Thank you for your support of our students, teachers, and staff during these uncertain times. We will continue to work together to provide the best educational opportunities possible for all our students. We look forward to seeing your students on Monday, February 7th. Sincerely, Andrew Reinking Superintendent
