Herscher School Superintendant Dr. Richard Decman announced today a custodian within the CUSD No. 2 school district has tested positive for COVID-19.

“As a result, we will be closing all of our buildings in the District for the next two (2) weeks (April 13-27) to all employees and the public. After these two weeks have expired, we will have our custodians return to work and they will thoroughly clean our buildings adhering to the guidelines recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC),” said Dr. Richard S. Decman in a statement to parents over the weekend.

With the announcement, Herscher School District becomes the first school district within Kankakee County to announce a case of COVID-19 internally among staff. The Superintendant said he hopes CUSD No. 2 can get back to a normal routine as soon as possible.
