In consultation with the DeKalb County Health Department today, Thursday, March 12, 2020, and information provided by the CDC and the IDPH, we have decided to postpone or cancel district- and school-sponsored events that involve large gatherings with parents and community members outside of the regular school day, until further notice. This includes postponing this weekend’s Sycamore High School’s Orchesis production of “Dancing Inside Out”. More information regarding this event will be communicated at a later date.
The IDPH continues to recommend that schools hold classes. Please know this does not impact our regularly scheduled school day.
We realize this decision may bring more questions. This decision also follows the lead of state organizations, such as the IHSA, regarding state competitions involving students. Please continue to monitor the school district’s website and our email communications, as we work to provide more details about this as quickly and as responsibly as possible.
