Dear Parents and Guardians,
At Princeton High School the health, safety, and well-being of our students and staff are our top priorities. With the recently elevated discussion regarding the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the news, we want to take a moment to reinforce preventive safety measures and reference our process and communications.
We are closely monitoring the situation nationwide and taking guidance from the Bureau County Department of Health, Illinois Department of Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It is important to remember that at this time, there are no cases of coronavirus at Princeton High School.
There is currently no recommendation to close schools in the United States. However, as a preventative measure, we have elected to not attend or host events that attract large crowds, especially those located in confined spaces. Princeton High School is also exploring E-Learning opportunities in case schools are required to close.
We encourage our students, staff, and families to be mindful of key preventive measures. The CDC offers some tips on its website that can be useful in avoiding the spread of this and other illnesses.
In addition, please remember that if children are sick, they should not be at school. Students need to be fever-free for 24 hours before returning to class after an illness. Keeping children home when they are sick is critical to prevention.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
