In-Person Instruction is Suspended for Remainder of the School Year

In-Person Instruction is Suspended for Remainder of the School Year


Dear CPS Parents and Families,


Earlier today, Governor Pritzker announced that in-person instruction will be suspended for the rest of the school year in Illinois to further slow the spread of COVID-19. We understand this is difficult news to hear, but we support the governor’s decision to protect the health and wellness of all Illinoisans. So while our school buildings may be closed, our teachers will continue to teach and our students will continue to learn. The important work of educating your child will not stop, and you will continue to hear from us regularly for the remainder of the scheduled school year. We know this is a tough time, but Chicago Public Schools (CPS) will be here to support you every step of the way.
