ST ANNE – Students in St. Anne will once again be asked to wear masks after St. Anne CCSD #256 was placed on probation by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).

In a press release sent home to area parents Tuesday evening, Superintendent Charlie Stegall updated parents on the mandatory mask mandates the school will begin to follow.

“As of result of these actions by the Illinois State Board of Education and the IESA, the St. Anne Grade School Board met in Special Session on Monday evening August 30th 2021 and voted to follow the August 4th 20201 Executive order.” Stegall explained following the status change with ISBE.

The changes, which affect all individuals at St. Anne Grade School, took place Wednesday.

“Please note that the Board takes these decisions very seriously and they are not made lightly.” Stegall wrote.

St. Anne schools voted in a Special Session on August 17th not to follow the August 4th executive order signed by Governor J.B. Pritzker for all public and private schools to enforce mandatory mask wearing in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19. 

The school was notified last Wednesday it had been placed on Probation.
