ST. ANNE – St. Anne schools will start the year full remote following three school district employees testing positive for COVID-19.

“In light of these positive cases and out of an abundance of caution, the Districts have made the difficult decision to transition to a full remote learning environment, beginning Thursday, August 20th through the remainder of the fall quarter, October 16th, 2020.” St. Anne Superintendent Charles Stegall wrote in a letter to parents Tuesday.

The decision affects both St. Anne High School and St. Anne Grade School.

Prior to the decision, parents had been notified on August 14th two employees had tested positive for COVID-19. Since then, St. Anne Grade School had a employee also test positive for the virus. The school has been working with the Kankakee Health Department in providing contact tracing and proper quarantine recommendations.

“Please know, this was a extremely difficult decision. We understand that many members of our community will be disappointed. However, the health and safety of our students and staff is our number one priority.” Stegall said. “More information will be shared by your school and/or child’s teacher over the next day.”

St. Anne hopes to resume in-person learning after the first quarter ends in mid-October.
