HERSCHER – Three students at Herscher High School have tested positive for COVID-19.  Herscher Community School District Unit 2 made the announcement in a letter to parents early Monday afternoon.

“We have become aware that (3) students at Herscher High School have been diagnosed with COVID-19. The first student received the confirmation of a positive test last Friday and the other (2) students received those results today.” Dr. Richard S. Decman, Superintendent said in a letter to parents.

The district reports none of the three cases have been linked to another.

The school district reports the last time any of the three positive students were in school while contagious was on Friday, October 16th.

Just over a week ago, on October 10th, the school district reported 64 students had been placed in isolation after a COVID-19 positive was identified in a Pre-Kindergarden student at Herscher Intermediate School. Herscher became the first school district in Kankakee County with a confirmed case of COVID-19 among their staff in April after a custodian had tested positive for the virus.
