  • First Day of In-Person Review from the Superintendent

    Posted by THOMAS BRUCH on 1/19/2021 5:00:00 PM

    Dear Peoria Public Schools community,

    Peoria Public Schools’ Return to School implementation went exceptionally well for students and staff Tuesday, as planned, especially at the high schools.

     

    • The COVID-19-testing went extremely well, both the PCR and the Antigen tests
    • About 15 Antigen tests administered to students and all were negative. Our nurses who administer these tests have significant specialized PPE and have been trained by the State.
    • About 150 high school students were tested with PCR today, and all results came back negative. Testing will be administered to high school students Monday through Thursday.

     

    Again, today was a joyful day for the students who attended in person. I do believe we have a very strong Return to School Plan. My estimate is that we had about 3,400 “B Day” students in school Tuesday. Tomorrow will be a new group of students on the “A Day” schedule. We are thrilled to have them all back in our buildings.

     

    With Gratitude,

     

    Dr. Sharon Desmoulin-Kherat

    Superintendent
