Villa Grove #302 Parents and Families, Tonight at a special meeting the Villa Grove School Board voted to change their COVID Mitigation Plan from mask required to mask recommended for all students, staff, and visitors. This includes all indoor settings and on a school bus. Further, close contact exclusion will only happen with an order from the local health department or IDPH. These changes will take effect immediately. COVID testing will continue to be available at school with parental permission. Student and staff safety continues to be a priority. If your student is showing signs and symptoms of illness, please keep them home. Your support and cooperation will be needed to help maintain students attending in person.
