COVID-19 Impact

Fall 2021 Update

The difference a year makes!  We were successful last year with our combination of in-person and fully-remote learning and were thrilled to have had zero cases of in-school transmission. As we move into this next phase of living with Covid, we are excited to embark on a school year with everyone back in person.  We are dedicated to keeping our Countryside community safe, so the following requirements are in place:

  • Our entire staff and faculty are fully vaccinated.
  • We highly encourage that our students be vaccinated as soon as they qualify. (Many of our middle school students have already been vaccinated.)
  • Masks are required to be worn by everyone in the building, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Our students, faculty, and staff are COVID tested each week at school. Countryside has partnered with SHIELD Illinois to provide this testing.

Our plans will evolve as we continue to work with the CDC, IDPH, and our local health department's guidelines for safe school operation.

"A big THANK YOU to all of the Countryside faculty and staff. Your innovation and dedication have been the key to helping our families adjust to all of this craziness. Continuing our children's education as well as just keeping them in a school-type routine has been invaluable. THANK YOU!" Parent - April 2020
