A special message regarding Coronavirus

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is very serious but we can get through this!

As of today we have 93 cases of COVID-19 in the state of Illinois. That number does not seem that high until you realize we are up by 19 cases in less than 24 hrs. WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS! But we must take proper precaution. Our seniors, people with respiratory and persons with compromised immune systems are our most at risk population. It is imperative that we practice great hand washing, not touching our faces and social distancing. Please go to the City of Chicago website about COVID-19 for updates.

As most of you probably already know Chicago Public Schools is closed from March 17th until March 30th. All regular CPS schools will be food distribution centers. Certain Chicago Park District facilities will be open and providing childcare for up to 250 children. The closest park to us that will be doing childcare is Jackson Park. Please go to the Chicago Park District website for more information.
