Park Ridge District 64 moving back to remote learning next week
Park Ridge-Niles Elementary School District 64 will switch to full remote learning beginning next week, Superintendent Eric Olson announced in a message to the school community Wednesday night.
Olson cited the rising rate of COVID-19 infections and case numbers for the decision, which will keep schools closed for in-person learning until at least Nov. 30.
"We are continuing to gather information in order to make a decision regarding our plan after Thanksgiving break, and we will give families an update on this by early next week," Olson wrote. "I know for many this announcement is not what you wanted to hear, even as the numbers continue to climb. I have enjoyed seeing and hearing your stories about how happy kids are to be back at school in-person, and I look forward to moving back to in-person learning as soon as it's safe to do so."
